Stiffy celebrates with fans
Bashment Soca king, Stiffy (real name Shane Atkinson), celebrated with fans last Sunday.
It was his way of showing appreciation for their love and support throughout the just-concluded 2016 Crop Over season.
The celebration took the form of a motorcade which moved off from Mile and a Quarter, Stiffy’s home town in St Peter.
It travelled through many northern districts before ending at Barclays Park along the East Coast Road where many fans were waiting.
Stiffy and his legion of fans had the time of their lives on the road. They were joined by former road march king, Grynner.
Although he did not win a title this year, Grynner still had loads to celebrate. Turn On De Speaker, his 2016 contribution, was arguably one of the biggest songs this season.
Stiffy won the first ever Bashment Soca competition back in June, singing his popular tune Tek Off Something.
He brought the house down that night, stamping his authority in that particular genre of music. He further captured the hearts of fans with the now much talked about picong verse.
Prior to the creation of the Bashment Soca competition, Stiffy was already dominant in the genre producing hit after hit yearly.
Last Sunday’s celebration, therefore, was a long time in coming and definitely earned.
