Her appointment to the helm of the highly revered and sometimes controversial International Soca Monarch’s Caribbean Prestige Foundation has come with its fair share of criticism and Herculean undertaking but for Fay Ann Lyons- Alvarez, it’s all a part of the journey. A short time ago, the former Soca Monarch champ turned boss of the ISM, was presented with a cheque and commitment by the National Lotteries Control Board for title sponsorship of the event.

The NLCB has dedicatedly assisted the Soca Monarch for some 27 years, forking out $35 million over that period, to fund the competition. Explaining that the company is committed to the culture of Trinidad and Tobago, NLCB representatives earlier expressed satisfaction in the rejuvenation of the competition.

On Fantastic Friday – March 1st, competitors from across the Caribbean will vie for two titles- those being the Power Soca Monarch and the Groovy Soca Monarch titles. Already, many are predicting that Grenada’s Mr. Killa will walk away victorious, however, anyone who knows the dynamic of Soca Monarch will understand that presentation is key on show night.

Take a look at the ceremony that took place earlier, as recorded live by influencer David Wears :

Miami Carnival is anticipated annually. Thousands flock to the hot Miami Beach hotels, enjoying the Collins Avenue atmosphere in the days leading up to the J’ouvert on the Saturday and the parade of the bands on the Sunday. With endless restaurants shopping and entertainment options in this hub of fun, Caribbean people, who are traditionally fun at heart, have no problem settling in.

On Saturday morning all roads led to the Miami J’ouvert and EBUZZTT took in the action. In true Caribbean style, big trucks assembled, Djs from around the world gathered to bring the vibe to the people and crowds of eager fetters, penetrated the scene. Like any typical J’ouvert, there was paint, powder, water and lots of smiles. Along the venue, there were food stalls delivering sumptuous Caribbean cuisine which included many Jamaican dishes, like rice and peas and ox tail. There was also Trinidad and Tobago delights like Shark and fries and soup.

The enjoyment was unparalleled for most who came out to have fun. All inclusive J’ouvert packages purchased, they danced blissfully for the hours that seemed unending. Miami Carnival ambassador, Giselle the Wassi One, came through with the J’ouvert fun for her faithfuls who lapped it up. Artistes like Motto and Mandela Linkz performed and we also heard Skinny Banton in the mix. For most Soca artistes, Miami Carnival gives them the platform to release their potential hits ahead of Trinidad and Tobago’s Carnival each year.

EBUZZTT caught up with three time International Soca Monarch Champion, Voice, who highlighted his appreciation for Miami Carnival.
