Sweet Soca and Party Monarch Kings Crowned

Bushy Park cam alive yes­ter­day, not with the sounds of high speed vehi­cles as one would usu­ally expect, but with the sound of soca music of Soca Royale. The Sweet Soca and Party Monarch com­pe­ti­tion were keenly con­tested but two men reigned supreme — Big­gie Irie and Gorg, respectively.

The crown­ings of Big­gie and Gorg rep­re­sented two of the more pop­u­lar deci­sions in the five years the com­pe­ti­tions have been held at Bushy Park. The major­ity of the esti­mated 10 000 peo­ple waited around for the announce­ments, which started around 9:26 p.m., and the cel­e­bra­tions started for each when the third placed per­son was announced and esca­lated when the sec­ond per­son was called.

In the case of Big­gie in par­tic­u­lar, there was over­whelm­ing sup­port from all the con­tes­tants. One of them even held the car door for him to get into his new vehicle.

It was a case of at last for Big­gie after 28 years in enter­tain­ment in Bar­ba­dos. Hav­ing tasted vic­tory in the Play Whe Groovy Soca com­pe­ti­tion in Trinidad and Tobago in 2007 with Nah Going Home,Big­gie Irie took his first soca title on local soil yes­ter­day by tak­ing the Sweet Soca title with Pankatang.

The mas­sive syringe Big­gie Irie car­ried in the Sweet Soca com­pe­ti­tion could have been injected with some of the rum that Gorg could count among the few things his woman left with him to take Bushy Park for his maiden show­ing in the Party Monarch finals.

He rode in on a bicy­cle but Gorg can ride away in his brand new Ford EcoSport SUV after tak­ing the title with 384 points, just two ahead of last year’s champ Soka Kar­tel, who fin­ished on 382, while Mikey fin­ished third on 373, Blood fourth with 356 and the only female in the finals Chrys­talscored 349 to place fifth.
