Soca Frenzy at the Park

Social Share


It is the single word to describe how the massive crowd, sandwiched between the tents and the stage, responded to the second last performer in last night’s Sweet Soca competition.

The frenzy started from the time the 2011 champ Red Plastic Bag was announced just after 8 p.m. The crowd was with him all the way, and all Bag had to do was sing. As if caught up in the spontaneity of the moment, he dived into the audience to end his performance. It took a while for the crowd to settle down.

The only title Edwin has never won in this country is the Sweet Soca competition. The closest he has ever got is position three in 2011, when Biggie Irie separated him and Red Plastic Bag. His Party Ah De Year looked like it could take him closer to that elusive title. (YB)
