Local artistes Omar Marzville McQuilkin and Damian Marvay are through to the semi-finals of the International Soca Monarch competition.
This is both artistes’ second time in the semis.
The announcement was made on Monday afternoon in Trinidad and Tobago.
They are among 35 semi-finalists hoping to make it through to the finals in hopes of dethroning two-time monarch Voice. That list is less than half of the semi-finalists making it through last year.
It was reported that fewer artistes entered the competition this year because of a drop in prize money.
Last year seven Bajan artistes made the cut.
The semi-finals will take place on Thursday at the Savannah in Port of Spain from 6 p.m. (DB)
