Soca fill on the Hill
From Lil Rick finally getting his full allotted time as headliner to the promoters ending the show with enough time to spare to get the thousands of people out without any serious incident – Soca On The Hill promoters made every effort to show patrons a good time on Sunday.
Certainly, having Bunji Garlin and Fayann Lyons as well as Blaxx as part of the line-up was like icing on the cake, but hands down it was the Bajan artistes who stole the show this year.
Starting promptly at noon, the local stars would kick off the show hot, hot, hot!
Performances such as Callie’s Wuck Up De Bumper, Dutty Android’s Leff It Pon Di Ground, Verseewild’s Dibby In A Fete, Cooper Dan’s Question Of The Year and krosfyah with a bit of everything sweet, as well as Sanctuary’s Woman Friend and Porgie And Murda’s Condense all caused a fury.
And with much credit to the promoters for keeping the show rolling, the thousands of fans who covered every inch of the Hill had no time to rest their waistlines because as soon as the local artistes finished their stints, Bunji and Fayann – backed by the Asylum band – hit the stage before sunset.
