Edwin and Ram rule Bushy Park

The “General” is back in command of  the Bushy Park ‘soca bowl’. And ruling right alongside him is the “Yella African”.

Before a bumper crowd, estimated by organizers to be in excess of 12,000, Edwin The General Yearwood  brought the Party Ah De Year  to the Philip venue  — with fireworks and all —  to secure the coveted Sweet Soca title.

It was the first Sweet Soca win for Yearwood, who had previously copped the Party Monarch title on five occasions between 1995 and 2004.

Last night, Peter Ram also stamped his authority on the Party Monarch competition by outperforming  a very seasoned field to take home the Kia Cerato and $10 000 in cash. He ended the night with 100 points compared to Yearwood’s tally of 94 points.

In the Sweet Soca competition, Ian iWeb Webster, who also competed in the Party Monarch contest, was second with All Inclusive, while veteran Red Plastic Bag, another crowd favourite, was third, singing his very popular Spontaneous.

In the Party Monarch competition, second place went to King Bubba with Mash Up When Ah Touch Down, while Hypasounds, singing How She Like, was third.

Organizers said they were very pleased with crowd participation in the first all-night Soca Royale event, which  began at 6:30 p.m. and ended just after midnight.
