Marzville out first for Soca Monarch


Share post:

Marzville will lead the performers at this year’s finals of the MQI/98.1 The One Soca Monarch Competition at the National Botanical Gardens on July 28.

The draw was held earlier today at the venue and Marzville, who was also a competitor in the Yello International Bashment Soca Competition, will set the standard for the 15 other finalists.

Meanwhile, last year’s Party Monarch, Mikey, will bring up the rear in the 16th position after swapping places with Jamal Slocombe.

The other monarch in the line-up, Lil Rick, who won last year’s Sweet Soca crown, will appear in the No. 2 spot.

This year’s competition also has four women in Betty B, TC, Faith and Nathalee.

The Soca Monarch Competition, which is an amalgamation of the Sweet Soca and Party Monarch, is being held at the Botanical Gardens for the first time and the National Cultural Foundation is promising a green festival at the new venue.

The full line-up of the finalists in the order they will perform is:
