Chester ‘Daddy Chess’ Letang has won the crown at the Stardom Monarch of the Tent competition held on Wednesday night at the Strip in Lalay Coco.

Singing his song ‘Country Before Color,’ Daddy Chess was able to secure the top position as he presented the song in a creative and captivating way.

He said that he is overjoyed at securing the title of Stardom King.

“It was a good feeling. I went for it, I got it,” he said.

He last won that crown in 2008.

Daddy Chess, who is a finalist in the Calypso finals slated for this weekend, said his performance and song at Stardom was a good ‘springboard.’

Second place position went to Jenius, while Karessah grabbed third place and fourth place went to Janae.

    I believe it is wide open this year. I never hear complaints last year about De-Webbs two songs and Boople’s Air Dominica which were not written by the performers. Too much jealousy and mapwe on Dice making headlines and not the music…

    I do not think that Dice will retain the crown this year. There are guys who have much better material than him. Daddy Chest, Karresah and The Web are the front runners. Daddy Chest last won the Monarchy in 2001. That is a long famine. It is time to end it. Let it be this year,

    I think Daddy Chess has a good chance to be monarch this year…Daddy, you have two solid songs and if you deliver them as you did last night; you can create an unexpected upset. Most people I have spoken too has already placed the crown on the current king or Karressah’s head; but I see an upset in the making…keeping my fingers cross

      Firstly Daddy Chess should not be in the line up for Saturday also TP I would rather see Lugus up there instead I love the Dice but if he doesn’t win that’s alright he will always be the KING.
