Monarchs get new rides

The monarchs of this year’s Crop Over season were officially presented with their prize cars from McEnearney Quality Inc (MQI) this morning.

Although she does not yet have a driver’s licence, Pic-O-De-Crop monarch Aziza Clarke told Barbados TODAY she intends to keep her red Mazda 3 and will start driving lessons next month.

“I plan to keep the car for sure; that’s my glory. The feeling has settled in, I am happy but still humble. Nothing really has changed. I’m still Aziza,” she said with a shy smile, as her mother, Carol Clarke, expressed immense pride in her daughter.

Sweet Soca Monarch Edwin Yearwood is already in love with his dark grey Kia Cerato. He sat in the vehicle, getting a feel of it after accepting his keys.

Lil Rick, this year’s Party Monarch, will also be keeping his blue Kia Cerato hatchback, even though he is not yet sure what he will do with it, as he already owns a truck.

“I’m going to drive it around first, see what it feels like. I want to test it out before I give it to anyone else to drive,” he said with a laugh.

All three monarchs won their competitions with nation building songs, and Edwin and Lil Rick are already planning to make videos to further promote the songs and the country in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Independence and beyond.

    Cost about $4.000.00 less by the end of the year.
    Time for some “Real Estate” that cost more in years to come.
