Marvay, Peter Ram in ISM finals


Share post:

MARVAY’S NAME IS on the lips of many in Trinidad and Tobago. The first timer has made it into the finals of the International Soca Monarch competition in the twin-island republic. 

Marvay was rushing to a show when contacted and manager Katrina Chandler couldn’t contain her excitement when speaking to NATION ONLINE. 

“I was pretty confident that Marvay would make the cut. His song is huge, his fan base is growing by the minute. He is forever humble and genuine and I believe that is what the Trinis love about him. Let’s not forget that voice! I expect him to do well. He is ready for the big stage.” 

The list, just released, has on 22 finalists and another Bajan, Peter Ram, joins Marvay to make the final count. While Ram (below) is no stranger to the soca scene, Marvay is a fresh face in that genre.peter-ram

His popular Know The Face placed him second in the Sweet Soca Finals for Crop Over 2016. RamGood Morning was also a monster hit for 2016 and is being used by at least three pan bands for Panorama 2017 in Trinidad.  

King Bubba FMMarzville and Biggie Irie were the other three Bajans in the semifinals held last week. 

Marvay‘s co-manager Ingrid Holder  said: “I’m very happy for Marvay. I want the Bajan posse to come to Trinidad and support on Finals night February 24. (NS)
