Young Bill Rogers takes on Soca, Calypso and Chutney this year

Rogers’ Hinds


Two-time Calypso Monarch, two-time Chutney Monarch and five-time Shanto King, Roger ‘Young Bill Rogers’ Hinds is gearing up for three competitions in the upcoming Mashramani season.

This year will see Roger entering the Chutney Competition with “My Larkie Always Fretting”, the Soca Competition with his power Soca song “Money Power Dance” and the Calypso Competition with “Ah Grading Dem Bandits”.

Roger thought to do Soca this year with all the hype this particular competition gets. Usually, he said, this competition clashes with the dates for the others he would already have entered, but this year each competition is scheduled for separate dates allowing him to compete in all three. Part of participating in the Soca Competition, Young Bill Rogers shared, is to show his versatility and love for this genre in answering critics who labelled him “just a Calypsonian.” The last time he did power Soca was in 2013, the same year Jumo Primo won his first Soca Monarchy…..
