THERE WILL BE a major Bajan presence in the February 13 Digicel Groovy International Soca Monarch finals in Trinidad and Tobago.

In addition to first-time finalists Fadda Fox and Leadpipe and Saddis, it is understood that there is a Barbadian flavour in the songs of three of the other finalists.

Local producers Red Boyz produced the songs being performed by Trinidadian acts Destra, Chucky and Farmer Nappy.

Leadpipe and Saddis were showered with glowing praises by Minister of Culture Stephen Lashley for their success. Speaking at the launch of the Crop Over Sponsorship Booklet at the 3Ws stand, Kensington Oval this morning, Lashley said the “pull-factor” for Barbados when local acts land a place in the finals in competitions like the Groovy Soca Monarch cannot be underestimated.

Lashley also said performances at other overseas carnivals and shows are pretty much guaranteed when acts make it the finals of the competitions in Trinidad. (YB)
