Mongstar Now Switched On!
Mongstar is the winner of the first Soca Switch competition with his No XCitement produced and Heights Music mixed and mastered We Getting On. Soca Switch was staged by Just4Fun as a vehicle to encourage local Soca artistes to release material earlier for the 2015 Carnival season.
The finalists for the event were Nurdy with Drunk is my Name, D’Sean Party Animal, Mysterio Feting Holiday, Shemm J Like A Star, Sergie Soca Party, Great White Long Time and of course Mongstar. The event was held at Gaiety gardens on Saturday May 25 and also featured guest performers Ezra, Q-Pid, Problem and Scottish. The event started off with a performance by Arthur and the Evalucian band, who also backed up the competitors during the evening. The MC for the night was Superman HD.
When the results were announced Nerdy was awarded the 3rd place, Mysterio 2nd place and Mongstar was announced as the first ever Just 4 Fun Carnival Band Soca Switch champion. He was handed the Soca Switch belt and EC$5,000 on the spot.
The main sponsor of Saturday’s event was Digicel.
