Jonathan “Jonny” Ramnarine wins the Chutneymusic.com Rajkumar (Prince) Competition 2023 Finals (CRC 2023) by a split decision narrowly beating incumbent CRC 2022 winner Aditya Seepersad, 2 to 1.
The judges were impressed with Jonny’s diction, stage performance and originality of his song “Wanna b Free”. In the song, Jonny urges a young lady who is romantically interested in him that he doesn’t want anyone to stress out his mammy (mother).
The judges thinks that Jonny has a bright future in the Chutney Soca Industry if he continues to sing original music.
They echoed a similar sentiment for second place winner, Aditya Seepersad who sang “CYA Stop MEH” and they certainly can’t stop this young man from performing well at the Chutneymusic.com Rani, Raja, Rajkumar and Rajkumari Competition.
Competition organiser, Jason “DJ Floops” Sookram is proud of the two young men who represented the Chutneymusic.com Rajkumar Competition well and is glad to see CRC, complete its third consecutive year in operation.
He and the Chutneymusic.com team are encouraged by the increased participation in th junior competitions, Rajkumar and Rajkumari and hope that in CRC 2024, more participants will come forward.
