Wulstan “Walleigh” Alfred successfully defended his Calyspo Monarch title at the National Cultural Centre grounds in Castries. The results were announced early Sunday morning.

This is the third time Alfred is winning the title, having won in 2005 and 2014.

Qpid, who is also a finalist in the Groovy Soca and Power Soca competitions this Sunday night, finished second; Invader copped third place and Ready finished fourth.

Alfred, principal of the George Charles Secondary School, scored 730 points to win with the songs “Robots” and “Coudmain”, while Qpid scored 722, and Invader, 690.

The other finalists were: Ashanti, Educator, Mary G, Menell, Nintus, and Ti Carro.

The 10 finalists were judged based on lyrics, presentation, melody, arrangement and rendition.

Meanwhile, Qpid, born Melissa Moses, will be hoping to taste victory on Sunday, July 19 in the Groovy Soca and Power Soca competitions. She will hope to wrestle the crowns from defending champions Arthur (Groovy Soca) and Ezra (Power Soca).

This is the second time Qpid is contesting all three finals.

  1. why aubertin (lord help me) did not sing it himself. Make a come back if he thought it was so good a song. But you see there are always some out there pushing their agenda but using other people. Poor ashanti, thought he was onto something good.

  2. Waleigh well done. You are a class act and quality calypsonian. Keep the vibe positive. So happy when you stayed out of the wrangling and bickering and declared that the show will go on dispite, . ..I trust that you are using you influence at your school and in your community to influence our young boys positively we need role models like you and you are well poised as an educator and entertainer to do so. Remember your reign as King is in your hands don't leave it up to the less educated whose aim is to advance their own agendas to dictate how you should reign. Remember always the King reigns supreme.
