Press Release:– Castries, February 2, 2017Saint Lucia’s Ricky T is in the finals of the Trinidad Chutney Soca Monarch competition with “True Rum Drinka Remix”. The song, with Chutney Soca Star Hunter, was released last week.

This is the first time a Saint Lucian will compete in the Chutney Soca Monarch Finals in Trinidad. Ricky T and Hunter are one of nine finalists who will face reigning Chutney King Ki Persad on Saturday February 11 at Skinner Park in San Fernando.

Hunter is no stranger to collaborative work with soca artistes. In 2008 he teamed up with Bunji Garlin on the huge hit “Bring Di Rum”.  The Chutney Soca Monarch is also a major competition in Trinidad Carnival, one that is completely funded by the Trinidad Government with a winning purse of TT$500,000.

Ricky T is currently in Trinidad preparing for the semi-finals of the International Soca Monarch slated for this coming Sunday February 5.
