Kurt Rules Calypso
KURT Allen convincingly won the 2010 Calypso Monarch competition on Sunday night with a lively song, “Too Bright” that hit profligate politicians.

Daughter Choc’late: I know he is a passionate person. My dad loves music and there is nothing more that he likes than to go on stage and to sing and perform.

Chalkie congratulates Allen
Dr Hollis Liverpool, also known as Chalkdust, who placed sixth, said “Kurt Allen is a good boy and he had a good song.” “Calypso is an art to be judged. I always accept the judges’ decision. I did not get to see the performance, though.”

De Fosto: It was awesome
Calypsonian Winston Scarborough, fondly known as the Original De Fosto Himself, says reigning monarch Kurt Allen’s song Too Bright was “awesome.” But he was concerned whether second place contestant Brian London broke the rules by having fellow kaisonian Brother Valentino sing an entire verse and chorus before he came on stage.
