After securing one of the top spots in the Eastern Caribbean Amalgamated Bank’s Junior Party Monarch on Friday, Ge-Eve is looking ahead to Wednesday’s Junior Calypso Monarch with much anticipation.
Ge-Eve Philip, formerly Baby Eve, was crowned Groovy Monarch Friday evening after competing against some of the nation’s best, while Empress was crowned Jumpy Monarch.
“Next for me is the Calypso Competition which is on Wednesday. I am taking that home one time. Taking that right home,” Ge-Eve said in an interview shortly after the competition.
The groovy monarch, who is no stranger to the stage, also had some encouraging words for young people who are desirous of entering the Calypso arena.
“Anybody who wants to enter, come out, show your colours and go for it,” the groovy winner said.
Philip, who first entered the calypso arena in 2013, has won six crowns thus far. The 12-year-old Antigua Girls High School student is confident of taking her seventh on Wednesday night.
Meanwhile, Empress, who won the Groovy title in 2017, said she was overwhelmed when she discovered that she had in fact captured the Jumpy title this year.
“I know that I could have done it. But, to see that it actually happened is really exciting,” the performer said.
Empress added that after putting in the hard work to compete, she is now looking forward to enjoying the rest of the summer festival.
