Cahit Singh Mohanlall better known as Bunty Singh has won the Xtra Beer Chutney Song Finals (2020 Guyana Chutney Monarch). His song entitled “She want me be she Raja!” emerged victorious from a field of 10 finalists. The song promulgated the sanctity of Marriage where women or in this case a woman threw herself at Bunty but he refused swiftly reminding her that he is a happily married man and loyal to his wife. The song is heralded as it contrasts the current theme of mainstream chutney which praises promiscuity. This is the third time Bunty won the crown having won in 2016,2018 and 2020. He took home 1.5 million Guyana dollars.
2019 Guyana Chutney Monarch, Steven Ramphal was not able to make good his title defense but was able to place 2nd with his unity song entitled Jo Sangeet Main Gaata. He suffered an early set back when doctors declared him medically unfit to sing but like a true champion he soldiered onward. He took home 0.75 million Guyana dollars.
Social media was buzzing that Leguan hopeful, AW Lyrical was unable to place.
Scenes of Bunty Singh accepting the crown:
Congratulations to Bunty Singh￼. Guyana CSM first place winner. Well deserved. He was the first contestant and set the bar too high. 🇬🇾￼Kudos to all the competitors. They all elevated their production for 2020. The competition still have a far away to go to compete on the international stage but Guyana is making progress. Guyana radio stations need to play more Guyanese music (Duhr). If you listen to the radio you would think you are in Trinidad or Jamaica.￼￼ Definitely not Guyana.￼ Only foreign artists get respect in Guyana.￼ I am very proud of you Bunty and all the other artists who competed.￼
