Trinidad and Tobago National Extempo Champion for Carnival 2018


The Incredible Myron B is the 2018 Extempo Monarch. He (Myron B) dethroned 2017 champion Gypsy in the Extempo competition at the "Kaisorama" event for Carnival 2018 in sweet Trinidad and Tobago.




Myron B accomplished something that many Extempo artistes have failed to do for many years. Tonight at the Extempo Competition for Carnival 2018 Myron achieved the upset that was celebrated by his adoring fans when he defeated twelve time Extempo King Winston 'Gypsy' Peters to be crowned Extempo Champion for Trinidad and Tobago Carnival 2018! Well done and congratulations to Myron from Sokah2Soca...

International Soca Monarch 2018


The reigning Soca Monarch, Aaron St. Louis, did not have his sweet voice tonight. I was very disappointed because he sounded like his 'voice' was compromised - he lost the sweetness, the 'voice' was not there! "The Year For Love" is such a beautiful song and the official recording is excellent however, his vocal performance was prone for defeat tonight. In the end (as per the judges decision) he prevailed and was crowned Soca Monarch 2018.

The Results were as follows:
  1. Aaron "Voice" St. Louis
  2. Dexter "Blaxx" Stewart
  3. Orlando Octave
  4. Trevon Turner
