Chutney Soca Monarch Finals | Order of Appearance 2014

The Chutney Soca Monarch competition takes place tonight without the defending monarch. Raymond "Show Stopa" Ramnarine will not defend his title not simply because he was not paid his prize money in full but also because the show organizers have allowed Bollywood melodies in the competition.
This is what he (Raymond Ramnarine) had to say about the inclusion about borrowed Bollywood melodies: 
“This is something that has plagued the industry and concerned artistes. Chutney lovers have expressed their dissatisfaction about it. Where is the creativity? How would you be able to judge an artiste with a total original song, compared to one with a Bollywood melody? “Taking any melody and being creative is okay but it should not be allowed in a competition. It should be about originality."
