Booster Shot: SVG Ragga Soca Finalists announced

>> Saturday, June 20, 2009

On Friday, June 26, 2009 fifteen competitors will vie for the Ragga Soca Crown. This year it is anyone's game. Last year's champ, Dani-O will not be defending her crown in 2009. In fact she will not be participating in Carnival at all. The 24-year-old has stepped away from singing soca music, to delve deeper into her Christian beliefs.

A list of finalists was released to the media in St. Vincent and the Grenadines yesterday, but I guess I`m not on that list.

So, I had to dig up the info the old fashioned way - I asked the artists, djs and other media people. Here's what I came up with. No worries tho, it's legit. 10 males competitor, 5 female. (Not that you were keeping score...but I am!)

Danielle Veira


G Wise & Oscar

Lady D



Troots & Ice






HS Phaktor will accompany the artistes on stage. That's Bomani and Shaunelle McKenzie's band, if you didn't know. I'm excited! I'll be arriving in St.Vincent the very same morning. So you done know, I'll be there! Ragga Soca Monarch will be the first show I get to see live! Can't wait!

2 x 2 cents (comment, nuh!):

That shot of Dani-O looked just like Sanell Dempster. I wish Dani well...

LOL...Zoelah has a great song, but there is some other steep competition. Here's "More Water" Zoelah's Ragga Soca entry (that's what would be called Groovy in Trinidad)...
