I am furious. I am disgusted. I am disappointed. In 2008, they gave the winners $15,000 an a little less for the first and second runner up. The prize moved in 2009 to $10,000 and a bike which is even more. In 2011 they decided to cut that in less than half-$5000 which cannot even pay for a song. However just for the interest of the art form, we decided to do the show for peanuts. Tonight we come for our prizes and we have noticed that our monies were cut by 20%,” he said.Letang says he tried to seek an audience with Chairman Colin Piper but he ran away.He says the prize money will not be accepted.Dominica Vibes News LocalNews 2011 Power Soca Monarch disgusted about 20% cut in prize money…Daddy Chess says he will not accept it by: – May 25, 2011 Sharing is caring! 46 Views   no discussions Sharecenter_img Tweet Share Sharelast_img
