The son of former National Calypso Monarch, Findley “Scholar” Jeffrey has continued to stamp his authority on the junior stage of local calypso and soca competitions.
Filandi “Stunner” Jeffrey who was unbeaten in the national Junior Calypso Competitions is now leaving his mark on the schools junior soca competition.
The young bard won the national title on two consecutive occasions (2013 and 2014) but is now over the age to take part in the competition.
Stunner, now a student at the TA Marryshow Community College (TAMCC) after graduating from the MacDonald College in St. Patrick’s in 2015, successfully defended the school competition which he first won last year.
The Junior Soca Monarch King who resides in St. Andrew’s came ahead of ten other students in the competition which was held last week Friday at the Tanteen Netball Court in St. George’s to regain the coveted title.
The young artiste used his song “Higher Level” to speak out against the way he was treated during his first-time participation in last year’s National Soca Competition by the judges.
Stunner who made it to the semi-final stage of the 2015 soca monarch competition failed to advance.
He said his fans felt the judges were not justified in keeping him out as a finalist in the competition.
MacDonald College Student, Jeloni Flemming who is from Chantimelle, St. Patrick’s, took the second spot in the competition last week.
The third position was occupied by the Soca Divas of Sherita Peters and Moesha Brathwaite, students of the JW Fletcher Catholic Secondary School at Tanteen, St. George’s who were the only two girls in the competition.
