Debutant SK and King Bubba FM were jointly crowned winner of the 2019 Yello International Bashment Soca Competition.

The judges could not separate the two after Saturday night’s competition at Pirate’s Cove, The City, both finishing with 308 points.

The crowd was not happy the top prize of $60 000 would be shared, but SK, whose performance of Reverse was the crowd favourite, was happy with the result.

King Bubba had already left to perform in Grenada when the results were announced and his trophy was collected by his mother Marian Elias. Earlier, he had sent the crowd wild with his performance of She Always Bend Over.

Last year’s champion Lil Rick scored 279 and his son Underdawg got 274 to complete the top finishers with Balance Batty and Ben Over, respectively.

Instead of an announcement via the Throne Speech, should Barbadians decide via referendum whether the country becomes a republic?
