The news of Grenada’s Mr. Killa’s withdrawal from defending his title in this year’s International Soca Monarch competition has led to some fiery online debate on the matter of Trinidad and Tobago’s support of other Caribbean islands’ involvement in Carnival. Some social media critics and commentators from the Spice Isle have outright stated that there has been no support or promotion of the Grenadian artiste heading into the competition.

This morning, in Grenada, talkshow hosts on Power 95.1FM weighed in on the hot topic, going as far as to include Machel Montano in their banter, arguing that had Montano been the defending champion, complementaries would have been sent to Montano’s team with hopes of his attendance.

Here’s a look at the video clip of the on air discussion. Feel free to chime in on the issue and let us know how you feel about this situation in our comments section below.
