Caston Cupid has won the Tobago Heritage Festival’s Calypso Monarch 2015 for the third consecutive year. Cupid’s calypso was entitled “Bush Geh Ears”. Dressed as the silk cotton tree; the place where “spiritual ancestors” dwell, his song revealed secrets laid down at the mythical tree by various people, to achieve their personal goals. With his catch line of “tori, tori, tori”, Cupid had the audience chanting to reveal even more secrets. He took home thirty-five thousand dollars ($35,000.00).
Second place went to Samuel “Ras Ringo” Morris with his calypso “Treasures of Heritage”. He won twenty thousand dollars ($20,000.00). Taking the third spot with “Then and Now” was Giselle Washington-Fraser. She received fifteen thousand dollars ($15,000.00).
Eleven calypsonians participated in this year’s competition.
