Soca Royale 16 announced


Share post:

THE SOCA ROYALE stage is set. Sixteen artistes were selected this morning at the conclusion of the Yello Phenomenal Friday to face up to reigning Party Monarch Li’l Rick and Sweet Soca Monarch Edwin Yearwood.

The semifinals of the Party Monarch and Sweet Soca Monarch contest bookended the Bashment Soca finals. By far the tougher competition was in the sweet soca category.

The party monarch contest reflected the decline in quantity and quality of entries in that competition while the sweet soca contest definitely reflected its growth in popularity.

With slim pickings, the judges went for a safe line up of experienced finalists for Party Monarch, with 3 former Party Monarchs in Mr Blood, Mikey and Peter Ram.

The Sweet Soca line up of finalists was a much tougher pick and with so many quality vocalists on point in the contest, there was no room for Fadda Fox’s Good Ole Days though he performed it well. He had to settle for reserve.

The finalists are as follows:

PARTY MONARCH: Faith, Mikey, Mistah Dale, Mr Blood, Peter Ram, Ramases, Ras Iley & Grynner, Saffiyah (Reserve – Kirk Browne).

SWEET SOCA: Damian Marvay, Lil Rick, Marzville, Nikita, Red Plastic Bag, Sanctuary, Shaquille, TC (Reserve – Fadda Fox)
