Reigning Junior Monarch Malik “De Examiner” Darroux of Saint Mary’s Academy is concerned about an apparent disproportionate amount of attention being given to Bouyon music as compared to Calypso
2020’s Reigning Junior Monarch, Malik “De Examiner” Darroux of the Saint Mary’s Academy says he is concerned about what he considers a disproportionate amount of attention being given to Bouyon music as compared to Calypso.
“I feel that the platform of Junior Calypso Monarch and Calypso monarch is dying for the younger generation because it is not being encouraged, whereas Bouyon is being pushed, as well as other genres. I believe that calypso is only being pushed mainly during the carnival season whereas it can be one of our main tourists [attractions],” he remarked.
De Examiner captured the winning title with his song entitled, “Visions” written by Jerry Lloyd at the Junior Calypso monarch competition for the second time last weekend.
