Booster Shot: Grenada Calypso Monarch Charged with Rape

>> Tuesday, May 5, 2009

Grenada's reigning National Calypso Monarch, 24 year-old Biko Lewis has been charged with the rape of a 15 year-old school girl. 

The incident took place on April 17th.  Biko was arrested and held until April 24th.  He appeared before a Sauters Magistrate on  April 29th where he was formally cautioned and charged for the offence of rape. 

It was reported that the victim was on her way to church, when she agreed to accept a ride a ride from Lewis. However, she never arrived at her intended destination.  Instead, he allegedly drove her to a secluded area where the act was committed.

Biko was relatively unknown as a Calypsonian when his performance of "Ah Can't Understand" easily defeated all competition at the 2008 Calypso Monarch Finals.  The stakes were high as the 5-time Monarch and 2007 champion, Scholar (Findlay Jeffrey) announced his retirement two weeks before the competition, and did not defend his title. 

Lewis also appeared as a semi-finalist in the national soca monarch competition as early as 2007.
