Katelin Sultan has created history as the youngest artiste to ever make a final in one of the big competitions in Carnival.
Soca Icon Machel Montano was 11 years old when he made the Finals of the Calypso Monarch.
The Chutney Soca Semi Final played to a packed venue at Screamers in Debe recently.
Twenty-nine performers put their best foot forward as they tried to make the cut for the Grand Final now scheduled for Fantastic Friday – 17th February at the newly renovated Skinner Park in San Fernando.
Ricardo Melville, aka Daddy Chinee topped the semi-final round with ‘We are One’, while Kenneth Supersad was close behind with his rendition ‘Moonilal’.
The female artistes also brought their A-game.
The eight year old, accompanied and supervised by her parents, did an elaborate presentation for a semifinal stage.
Thirteen artistes, inclusive of GI Beharry, who is defending his title, will now move to Skinner Park in San Fernando for the Grand Final.
GI Beharry is also trying to create history by being the only artiste to achieve a ‘beaver-trick’ at Chutney Soca Monarch.
