Scholar Wins Grenada's Calypso Crown | Spice Mas 2018

The defending monarch was dethroned last night at Grenada's Dimanche Gras show/competition; The SMC Gras competition celebrated the best of the best from the Calypso fraternity and marked the end of the singing competitions making way for the street parades.

There was much anticipation for this competition with people wondering if last year's monarch was good enough to retain his crown as best Calypsonian for another carnival cycle. Last year's King, Rootsman Kelly (the defending monarch), was soundly beaten into fifth place. From that outcome a new monarch was crowned.

The competition was close; as a matter of fact, the first and second places were decided by just one point! The new monarch, Scholar, just outdid the second place finisher Baraka while Sour Serpent placed third. Last year's monarch placed fourth last night. We have added the King and Queen of the Bands results to this post.
