Farmer Nappy wins "The Monarch" | T'dad & Tobago 2021

0 comments

Carnival 2021 was canceled because of the Covid Pandemic. However, that created an environment for virtual shows/performances/competitions. For the first time, in a long time, there was an official Soca Monarch competition for Trinidad and Tobago. A virtual experience for most but for those who were permitted to attend it felt like the carnival was alive once again. No ISM Soca Monarch but instead we had "The Monarch 2021"

The show carried a different feel but for those longing for the carnival experience, the mood was just right. The performances are in and, in the end, Farmer Nappy with his "Backyard Jam" emerged as Trinidad and Tobago's Monarch; he is "The Monarch 2021" and takes home the TT$150K first prize!

Sokah2Soca extends a hearty congratulations to Darryl Henry aka "Farmer Nappy" our official Carnival hero for 2021... he is "The Monarch". In the second spot was Olatunji Yearwood with his rendition of "Drunk History". In third place was Viking Ding Dong and Mical Teja with "Hornin First".

Carnival is a no-show for 2021 but the vibe was in place. The Soca artists delivered excellent songs for a virtual carnival experience and we expect to hear these songs when we hit the road next year with Covid relenting and making way for some form of normalcy. 

Kudos to all who ensured that we shared this virtual experience. It makes the pain of 'no carnival' tolerable for the moment. Let's hope that we see a return of a Trinidad and Tobago Soca Monarch next year alongside the ISM.

The Results for "The Monarch 2021":
  1. Darryl "Farmer Nappy" Henry - Backyard Jam
  2. Olatunji "Ola" Yearwood - Drunk History
  3. Kemar Christopher "Viking Ding Dong" Dwaine Ottey & Michal Teja - Horning First
The rest of the performers were as follows (not in order of final placements):
  • Aaron Duncan
  • Blaxx
  • Melly Rose
  • Preedy
  • Rome
  • Trinidad Ghost
  • Trinidad Killa
  • Turner

The Monarch | Trinidad & Tobago's Virtual Carnival 2021

0 comments

Did you know that Trinidad and Tobago will host a Soca Monarch for this Virtual Carnival 2021? Oh hell yes, it is slated to take place on what would have been Fantastic Friday (February 12th). 

The Monarch as it is being called replaces the International Soca Monarch and will crown an official Soca Monarch for Trinidad and Tobago for 2021. This may become a trend and just maybe there will be funding for such a competition when carnival takes its place as medical specialists across the globe cope with and control covid spread. 

This is not just a competition in name only, there is meat to the package. Singers are coming with new songs even though carnival is a nonstarter this year. 

There is value for the artists competing this year; there will be prize money amounting to TT $300,000. It is interesting to note that neither Iwer George and Kees Dieffentaller (winners of ISM Power category 2020), and College Boy Jesse (winner of the Groovy category 2020) are in the mix for "The Monarch" will be participants for this competition. It is unique and will not have defending champions. It is "The Monarch" not the International Soca Monarch. It is limited to Trinidad and Tobago nationals. The show will take place on Friday, February 12, and will be aired on what should have been Carnival Saturday, February 13, 2021.

We wish the artists success and hopefully, the format chosen for the competition will garner subscribers to the show on Friday. The singers will perform to a live band with added props and a limited audience. The venue is the National Academy for Performing Artis, Port-of-Spain, Trinidad. The live feed will be carried by CCN TV6!

• Aaron Duncan

• Blaxx

• Farmer Nappy

• Melly Rose

• Olatunji

• Preedy

• Rome

• Trinidad Ghost

• Trinidad Killa

• Turner

• Viking Ding Dong and Mical Teja

New Soca Music 2021

0 comments


Please note that we are posting the new music releases to our Facebook Portal; we have also created a YouTube playlist of the new music releases. 

We have been hit hard by Covid-19; if you haven't, give thanks. Sadly, I, (my family and friends) lost my beloved brother-in-law, the carnival party animal, Michael Brian Hernandez aka "Brain" to his friends; he will be sorely missed. Brian never missed carnival and he loved Trinidad and Tobago. He traveled to Trinidad regularly to attend parties, fetes, Tobago Jazz festival, and 'just because' for a good lime hanging with the people he loved. This one hit us hard and because of this unexpected tragedy, we are taking it easy now. 

If there is someone special in your life, a friend or family member, don't wait to let them know how special they are and what they mean to you... hug someone you love, don't wait because you may lose the chance to tell them how you really feel. 

Cowen (on the left) & Brian aka Brain 

So catch the new tracks on our Facebook portal and from our YouTube music player. Posting to the blog will resume when this sadness lifts! In the meantime, we will keep the music playing because Brian loved his Soca and as he always said, "one life to live, enjoy it"!

Candy Shack Riddim | Trinidad & Tobago 2021

0 comments

Covid-19 may be causing serious carnival consternation in the Caribbean basin but our music producers and artists are forging ahead with new music for all carnival loving fans. These new music releases will relieve all of your vibe anxieties. When one thinks of it, new Soca music should come with a 'year-round-expectation' attached to the genre. Soca is not just carnival music but music loved and expected with a 12-month release cycle. So let's get to it, today we release new music produced by Stadic x Jonny Blaze. These two producers and not standing still but are blazing a new trail with some excellent music production. 

This riddim features the following artists and songs:
Kerwin Du Bois x Destra Garcia - Stress Reliever
Patrice Roberts x Kemar Highcon - Start UP
Konshens - Soda
Azaryah - Sweetest

Pick the one you like, better yet, put them all on replay; we did just that and the came away with good feelings and a smile on our faces. We all needed a little relief looking forward to next year and it was a pleasant surprise listening to an early music release featuring Destra Garcia. The talented lady teamed up with one of our favorite singers, Kerwin Du Bois with that needed "Stress Reliever". 

Patrice, oh Patrice... this lady is on top of her game once again. Let's keep our fingers crossed that she drops half a dozen songs for the upcoming season. She teamed up with Jamaican Dancehall singer Kemar Highcon to 'Start-Up' de-ting! We all want more from Patrice!

Konshens is already a star out of Jamaica and comes with international credentials. He adds his unique style to the Candy Shack Riddim with our West Indian love affair with soda. If that wine is sweet like soda then everything is just right. 

The riddim concludes with a song entitled "Sweetest" from the singer Azaryah. Seumas Keelan Callender aka Flipo now goes by the name Azaryah. This young talent is multi-talented and has produced, recorded, collaborated, and wrote songs for various artists.  Today we are blessed with his vocal talent with all the sweetness that he can give for the Candy Shack Riddim.

We are confident that you will find something to love on the riddim. As a fan of the various artists, you have a winner then again, as a fan of Soca music you have four winners. Enjoy some sweet new music from Stadic, Jonny Blaze, and friends.

We Ha Ting | Kerwin Du Bois | Trinidad & Tobago 2021

0 comments

Kes and Voice said it in "Dear Promotor", "Once ah Trini reach in yuh fete is niceness". Well, we are taking today's music offering and doing the same with the song! Oh yes, it is about time someone told the world that Trinidad and Tobago (Trinis) have 'real ting'; yes, "We Ha Ting" for the World. Our music is fantastic, we can shout out to the world that we gave them the calypso music, the steel pan, Soca and Chutney Soca... yes, indeed 'we ha ting'. If you are a fan of good music then you will appreciate this offering... we have 'ting' for you! 
Oh, and by the way, we know how to get on bad (in a good way) when it comes to having fun and yes, we like to lime! "We ha ting", we have real ting! This is new music from Kerwin Du Bois, entitled "We Ha Ting". Thank you Kerwin Du Bois for reminding us that we can take pride in who we are as a nation and people. We have real ting and we are sharing it with the World! Nice...
