I Marcus “Lavaman” James the reigning soca Monarch king wish to inform the general public that I will not be defending my title at this year’s Soca Monarch Final come Bacchanal Friday at the National Stadium.
My decision to stay away from competition this year, was made on the backdrop of what is best for me now as an artiste.
I would like to say thank you to all my fans for the support you have shown and continue to show me as I move to taking my musical career to another level.
“As an artiste, I will continue to contribute to carnival with my style of music, all in an attempt to making you my fan base happy”.
As to my future and whether or not I will be returning to competition it is left to be seen”.
I wish the 15 finalists vying for the title on Friday, August 9th the best of luck and a successful carnival season.
