Some of the biggest names in entertainment who did not make it to the MQI 98.1 The One Soca Monarch Finals will still be on stage today at the National Botanical Gardens.
Among them are Biggie Irie, Peter Ram, Edwin Yearwood and The Mighty Grynner and Fadda Fox.
Calypso lovers who prefer a bit of ragga soca in their music can also look forward to performance from joint bashment soca kings King Bubba FM and SK as well as Mole and Walkes, among others.
Several deejays are also on the cards to keep the crowd rocking as the judges look to choose the first ever soca monarch.
Last year’s Party Monarch winner Mikey and Sweet Soca champion Lil Rick are among 16 slated to perform when the show gets underway in Waterford. Marzville will be first out.
The full line-up of the finalists in the order they will perform is:
- Lil Rick
- Betty B
- Jamal Slocombe
- Jus D
- Biggie Irie
- Adrian Clarke
- Skung Yung
