Colosso is Calypso Monarch

In a clean sweep Eustace ‘Colosso’ Freeman took not only the crown, but also the major prizes at the 2017 Calypso competition.

Freeman who is no stranger to the BVI stage performed two songs in the competition; but even he had to admit that it was his song “Don’t Mess With the Doctor.” that had the audience singing.

In the end he secured the prize for Best arrangement, Best Lyrics, Best Commentary, Best Humorous Song, and Best Stage Performance. Following his win the new Calypso King announced that he stayed away from the calypso arena for a while, and now decided that the time was right for his return.

The show also saw Titus “Rocky” Crabbe gaining the Second Runner Up title; and Reynold “King Paido” Phillips being adjudged the First Runner Up.

Additionally, Chair of the Calypso sub-Committee Lavida Cottoy made a presentation on the night of the competition to King Paido for his over 20 years participation in the Calypso arena.
