Soca Kingdom takes Road March


It's official. Celebrity soca artistes Machel Montano and SuperBlue (Austin Lyons) are the 2018 Road March champions with Soca Kingdom, played 336 times.

 Fellow entertainer Iwer George copped second place with Savannah, and, Patrice Roberts, clinched third place with Sweet Fuh Days.

Trinbago Unified Calypsonians' Organisation (TUCO) Public Relations Officer Steve Pascall congratulated Montano and Superblue on their victory.

In 2013, Superblue's “Fantastic Friday” trumped rival Machel Montano's “Float” for the Road March crown with an overwhelming 511 plays at venues across the country on Carnival Tuesday. Montano could only muster 56 plays then.

Superblue also ruled the road in the 2013 Downtown Carnival Road March, with 106 plays to Montano's 23.
