St. Thomas’ Parish-Nevis-In front of a fair sized crowd, King Sookie, the dynamic young Calypsonian on Nevis, was unanimously crowned as Calypso King of the St. Thomas’ Fest, 2018 edition.
The show was held at the St. Thomas’ Primary School, the home of the festival, on the evening of Saturday 15th September.
The feat was made even more astounding, as he not only won over twelve other competitors, but some of them are more seasoned campaigners than himself.
However, Sookie was calm, cool and collected, as he delivered his winning piece which was entitled ‘Slavery to Paradise.‘
The final placements were as follows:
Calypso Monarch- 422 points-King Sookie
1st runner up- 393 points-DADDY NATURE
2nd runner up 390 points-INVINCIBLE
