Defending junior Calypso Monarch, Jovinski Thorne lost the crown on Saturday by a mere two points to Jamal Stewart who caught the judges’ eye with his song “Miss May’s Old Car Engine”, according to the Department of Public Information (DPI).
However, Thorne came away with the title of 2019 Junior Soca Monarch with his entry ‘The Stage” which earned him 276 points, DPI said yesterday. This placed first-timer Faith Corrica in second place with 237 points and the 2018 Junior Soca Monarch Dexter Copeland in third with 222 points.
Held at the Region 7, Bartica Community Centre, on Saturday evening, residents were given the time of their life, DPI said.
