Four-time winner Aaron Duncan lost his title yesterday at the Eastern Credit Union’s 25th Annual Primary Schools Calypso Competition to Kaylene Rigsby of the Chaguanas RC School.  
Rigsby prevented Duncan from claiming a fifth consecutive win. She delivered a powerful rendition of My Needs to the packed audience at the Eric Williams Auditorium, La Joya Sporting Complex, St Joseph. The Chaguanas RC student won $1,500 in credit union shares and $1,500 in cash as well as the challenge trophy and replica. She was also presented with a $800 book voucher from RIK bookstore. Rigsby also won the “Calypso Promoting Credit Union Philosophy” special prize of $500.

Duncan placed third with his song, Rewards of Discipline, in which he advised youths to strive for discipline in order to achieve their goals. Second place went to Waynesha Modeste from the Arouca Government Primary School who sang Love, the key to success while Arima Boys’ RC student Jeremiah James copped the Road March special prize for his commanding performance of Message from Mandela. The event, hosted by comedian Errol Fabien, saw 13 students from primary schools across the country vying for the title, most of them singing about social issues, such as crime, education and parenting. —Camille Hunte
