    2002 RAGGA SOCA MONARCH...

    To Be Or Not To Be....

    Ragga Soca competition hanging in the balance.

    THE fate of this year’s version of the International Ragga Soca Monarch competition is hanging in the balance as organisers are still awaiting money from the Ministry of Culture to get the show on the road.


    National Cultural Promotions of Trinidad and Tobago (NCP), which is responsible for the show, said in a statement that it has not been able to pay up prizes in full for the 2001 competition as the Ministry has only contributed part of its promised payments.


    NCP said it would meet with Culture Minister Eudine Job-Davis on Friday to address the situation.


    “The promotion and production of the Ragga Soca Monarch depends on the promises and commitments indicated by the Ministry of Culture with outstanding prize monies for 2001/2002,” the release said.


    Organisers pointed out that both the Ministries of Culture and Youth have always assisted with the prize money which goes directly to the artistes.


    The Ragga Soca Monarch attracts over 300 artistes in the 17 to 35 age group.


    Last year’s winner, Bunji Garlin, who is still awaiting his prize, was praised for his “extreme co-operation”.


    Despite the financial uncertainty, however, organisers said registration for the 2002 competition would begin soon after their meeting with the Minister.


    NCP said it hoped that the practice of late payment of prize money for Carnival events would be changed.
