Chutney Soca & Traditional Chutney Music Results:
KI Persad emerged as winner of the Chutney Soca Monarch competition taking home the TT$1M prize money. On the flip side the Traditional Chutney Monarch, Rooplal Girdharrie only took home TT150,000 for first place. This has to change and is very unfair!

The Traditional Chutney Monarch should not receive anything under $500,000. Congratulations are extended to the winners and runners up.  Here are your results for both categories in last night's show at Skinners Park, San Fernando.
