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
