Can Stiffy make it three in a row? Will Lil Rick add another title to his belt? Will Scrilla finally be crowned a Bashment Soca Monarch? Or will it be a female who will wear the tiara? 

The Yello International Bashment Soca competition organisers have announced the 12 finalists and Barbados dominates with ten. Rounding out the list is Freezy from St Lucia and Sita from St Vincent.

With the competition branching out this year to include international acts, voting was online via the Yello App.

“We received thousands of vote submissions from across the world, coming from as far as Sweden and Switzerland, to England, the USA, Canada and all over the Caribbean. That augurs well for this genre of music” said Rudy Maloney from 4D Entertainment.

First timers Porgie & Murda were overwhelmed and thanked the fans for voting for them: “It is a beautiful feeling to be in the competition. We will bring our best to the stage. This is our first time trying out for the competition so it feels Porgatastic to get in.”

The winner-takes-all competition comes off on July 6. (NS)
