After a two-year absence, four-time calypso king, Dice, is off to the February 5 quarterfinals of this year’s calypso competition.

His calypso “Send Me” was well received by patrons at Krazy Kokonuts Sunday evening.

Trendsetter, De Exposer and Young Bull ( Val Cuffy), who also thrilled the crowd with their songs, have made it to the quarterfinals.

Forty-nine individuals participated in last night’s calypso elimination round, and 12 were chosen among them to advance to the next leg of the competition.

Several female calypsonians were to form last night’s line-up, but many were not able to secure a place in the quarterfinal round; however, Leandra, who came on the scene a few years ago, pleased the judges enough to move on to the next round.

Calypso legend Picky, Third Eye, Mighty Aca, Man Himself, Educator, Comforter, and Kendes are the others confirmed for the calypso quarterfinals.

Tarina was absent from the elimination round last night after missing last year’s competition.
