FLOW Soca Monarch competition to reward local acts
01.07.2016 - Lyf Compton
Today, Friday July 1st, FLOW, will host on their promenade on Halifax Street, their annual Soca Monarch competition.
The competition will give artistes who did not make it to national Soca Monarch competition, the opportunity to showcase their talent.
Senior Marketing and Corporate Communications Lead at FLOW Nikala Williams said that today's event is part of FLOW's push to highlight local talent. This push began a few weeks ago with the performance of the junior calypsonians on the promenade.
Last Friday June 24th, senior Calypsonians had the opportunity to ply their trade on the promenade (as did the junior calypsonians on Friday June 10th). Among those performing last Friday were Roland 'Chico B' Veira (Rum Pipe), Junior 'Marshie' Marshall (Donkey for car), Gosnel 'GC' Cupid (Pan like rain) and William 'Kojah' Anthony (Behind closed doors).
"Last Friday's event was just another part of the exciting activities highlighting Vincy Mas on the promenade. This Friday is the grand finale, the FLOW Soca Monarch competition which will see the winner walk away with a flat screen television and free TV service", said Williams. She added, "this event is much anticipated each year and it will be great entertainment and lots of giveaways and the admission is free".
