G-String, ACASA Calypso Monarch 2020

G-String crowned 2020 ACASA UK Calypso Monarch


This year has been a weird one in so many ways thanks to Covid-19 and the pandemic but, as they say, ‘the show must go on’ – and that it has.

The 2020 ACASA Calypso Monarch competition, usually held on the Thursday before Notting Hill Carnival, was pre-recorded at Abbey Road Studios and then streamed online as part of the Notting Hill Carnival ‘Access All Areas’ presentation. The show was presented live last night via the Notting Hill Carnival YouTube channel, followed by live voting.

2020 was the year for G-String once again, who was victorious with his song Ms Corona and has been crowned ACASA UK Calypso Monarch 2020. He last won the title in 2016.

G-String was backed by the ACASA All-Stars Band, with backing vocals provided by The Soca Divettes.

The results are:

1st. G- String Ms Corona

2nd. Brown Sugar 4 Times Likely

3rd. De Admiral It’s All or None

4th. Helena B Corona Positive

5th. Rev B I Can’t Breathe

6th. Muffinman Nothing Stops the Jammin

7th. Clivus Windrush Coming Down
