Vincentian Soca Monarch title holder, Skinny Fabulous has made it into the TnT Soca Monarch finals. His performance of ‘Going Off’ on Sunday night secured him a spot in the Groovy Soca Monarch category. The other two Vincy artist, Fya Empress and Fireman Hooper were not as successful. Congratulations to The General making it once again into the prestigious Soca competition, we wish him all the best.
The announcement was made last night via a live stream recap show with JW and Blaze. After much questionable comments about the various performances and a particularly biased take on the performance of J Angel the finalist were announced.
Fabulous would be competing against the following artist in the Groovy competition;
Farmer Nappy, Destra, Lyrikal, Blaxx, Erphaan Alves, Chow Chow, Nadia Baston, Fadda Fox, Ola, Ledpipe and Saddis, Ricardo Dru, Benji and Chucky.
Machel Montano would be defending his Power Soca title against these artist;
Blaxx, Snakey, Mr. Killa, Kitch, Squeeze Head and Shall Marshall, K I, Iwer King George, Granny, Patrice Roberts, and Shurwayne Winchester.
Notably, a top performer for the night and one of the favorites for the groovy crown, Lyrikal’s ‘Cloud 9’ was produced by Vincentian super producer Alex “Kubiyashi” Barnwell. One of his many contributions to Carnival in TnT this year.
