Hypasounds in Soca Monarch finals
HYPASOUNDS is the lone Bajan to make it through to the finals of the International Soca Monarch Competition.
The first-timer was overwhelmed at the news which was just announced live on radio in Trinidad and Tobago.
He was one of five in the competition along with King Bubba FM, iWeb, Peter Ram and Biggie Irie.
Hypasounds sang his 2015 Crop Over hit How She Like It.
“It is one of the greatest feelings ever to be able to take this passion that I have for music and showcase it to the world,” he said in an interview.
“I think where I came from to where I am right now, everything is a great feeling. Every bit is a great achievement.”
He is looking forward to the finals which will be staged on Fantastic Friday, February 5.
Peter Ram is among four wildcards with All Ah We. There are 17 finalists announced going up against defending monarch Olatunji Yearwood, and two more spots will be filled via wildcard. Those slots will be decided via public voting. (NS)
