Rikki Jai and GI talk CSM Final, Respect and Support for Chutney Soca

Rikki Jai and GI talk CSM Final, Respect and Support for Chutney Soca

Rikki Jai is a multiple CSM Champ, but for him, every final is a new challenge.

We chatted a bit with the veteran artiste about the competition final this Saturday and he stated the obvious: that everyone wants to win.

That is exactly why he says he respects his fellow artistes and never takes anything or anyone for granted.

Countless hours have already been clocked preparing for his Finals performance, which like others, takes a lot of effort, coordination and resources.

He stated once and for all, that contrary to what some might think, its more than just “putting dancers on the stage”.

And of course, Rikki has always been an advocate for the local chutney and chutney-soca artforms.

And he continues his call for more support from local radio stations.

GI is another finalist who also weighed in on the matter of support for the industry.

He feels that at times, it is not given due respect.

With regard to the CSM Final, GI is all about GI!

He says while he does not underestimate his talented competitors, at the end of the day, he chooses to focus on what he has to do.
