Daron Roberts was awarded the trophy for the most humorous calypso for 2007 and took the Calypso Monarch crown in the San Fernando Boys’ RC School calypso competition on Carnival Friday.

The competition took the form of a three part contest - in the infant, lower junior and senior categories in the school yard. This was the school’s 30th annual calypso monarch show.

Roberts, decked in full football gear, delivered his rendition entitled De Man Butt Down De Man before his peers.

Stefan Corbie and Maalik Springle ran second and third respectively to Roberts in the senior category.

In the lower junior category Michael Smith singing My Future placed first, while Isaiah Mootoo and Kerrell Wilson emerged second and third respectively.

In the infants category six-year-old Mickyle Calliste executed a story about the kidnapping and violence crisis in the country. Calliste was last year’s infant monarch and went on to retain the title with his song entitled Kidnapping.

Other successes in the category were Lindon Livingston and Tevin Keith. Stefan Corbie also captured the Road March title.

The young calypsonians of tomorrow sang with conviction on the many problems faced in T&T.

Several pupils decided to sing about the issues affecting the country.

Apart from the minor hiccups with the make-shift tent, the boy’s all delivered diligently before their peers, parents and teachers.
