PHILIPSBURG, St. Maarten - Before a reasonable crowd at the Festival Village on Thursday night, Raw Promotions successfully hosted the annual Nagico Calypso finals.

The event, which had a participation of some 11 competitors, including last year’s Monarch Queen Shakiya, saw some stiff competition among the participants.

The show got off to a start at 8 pm promptly with the playing of the St. Maarten Song, which was followed by entertainment by CD Ranking. The first Calypsonian to perform, the Mighty Magic, made his way to the stage at exactly 8:50 and by 2:07 am, the results were pronounced by the MC and president of Raw Promotions, Fernando Clarke.  

At the end, Fish de Mega Boss was announced the winner of this year’s contest with 602 points for his two songs, namely I Can’t Finish and Prick. He was then crowned by the former Calypso Monarch, Queen Shakiya.

It was Fish de Mega Boss 5th time winning the crown. The first runner up went to Fox with 596 points, while Protégé had to settle for the 2nd runner up position with 583 points. The 4th runner up position went to Ebony Empress who scored 5 53 points.

Raw promotions also added three other segments to this year’s Calypso finals as well. Those were the amicable segment, which was captured by Baker Jr; the most popular division was conquered by Protégé, while the most progress segment went to Ebony Impress.

Speaking to our news department, Fish de Mega Boss told us that he went into the competition as a winner and that for him win or lose, he always considers him to be a winner.

The idea, according to him, is to put his best foot forward. He is now looking forward to promoting his new CD entitled “Prick”.
