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

Trinidad and Tobago's Carnival 2021 was canceled because of the Covid-19 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 in 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 virtual show/performances took, place on Friday, February 12, 2021. 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 were 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 will see a return of Trinidad and Tobago's 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
