Young Kings Ca­lyp­so Com­pe­ti­tion

First-timer crowned Young King

Fyz­abad-born Ronal­do Lon­don has been crowned the win­ner of this year’s Young Kings Ca­lyp­so Com­pe­ti­tion at the Queen’s Park Sa­van­nah on Tues­day night af­ter his début per­for­mance.

De­spite lack­ing the flair and pizazz of elab­o­rate stage props and cos­tumes as many of his fel­low con­tenders, Lon­don was able to win over the crowd and judges with the ren­der­ing of his song, Man’s Imag­i­na­tion.

His ca­lyp­so was a com­men­tary of how the imag­i­na­tion of mankind led to dark am­bi­tions of greed and hate; some­thing far from what God cre­at­ed him to be.
