After knocking on the door for a number of years, the St. David’s calypso duet, Li’l Natty and Thunda has begun to reap the rewards; Road March Kings in 2017, now Soca Monarchs, having won last Friday’s Soca Monarch finals at the National Stadium.
The pair, Dingaan Henry and Nyelon Williams (Li’l Natty and Thunda) have over the years built a reputation for putting on a no-nonsense performance whenever they hit the stage and last Friday’s performance was no exception, despite being the final performer in a cast of seventeen acts that grace the stage in last Friday’s Soca Monarch finals.
Their selection “Get in your Section,” at 4 am on Saturday morning electrified the entire stadium to bring the curtains down on the 2018 show on an unprecedented high.
According to the judges after doing their tabulation, fifteen points separated the 2018 champions from their closest rival who incidentally was the defending champion Jalon “Boyzie” Olive.
Boyzie’s selection “Possessed”, according to the judges did not have the clout to allow him to defend his title amassing a total of 252 points to capture the second position.
