Chutney soca superstar KI who took home the coveted Chutney Soca Monarch title during T&T carnival 2012, heads to Caribana in early August. Information suggests that the star, who will also perform at House of Marley on August 30th in Trinidad, is booked along with his band, JMC 3Veni for the annual carnival styled festival.
With his chutney soca hit, Single Forever, a massive crowd pleaser- the artiste who recently copped another title, having been voted Chutney Soca Entertainer of the Year at the recently held International Reggae & World Music Awards in July, is reportedly eager to be a part of the Toronto festival.
Other artistes carded to be in the mix for the Caribana weekend between Thursday, August 2 and Sunday, August 5, include Machel Montano with his full band, Shal Marshal, Super Jigga TC, The Boss Neil Iwer George and others.
Meanwhile, KI’s Single Forever ranks at #2 when searched in the Google search engine- this among some 20 million results on the World Wide Web. Additionally, the song is the most played single out of Trinidad and Tobago this year- played more than 2100 times across 23 radio stations, according to recent reports.
Ahead of T&T’s Carnival 2013, the reigning chutney soca king says he is excited to hit the streets of Port-of-Spain with Trini Revellers again, alongside his band which has played for the mas band since its inception.
KI and JMC 3Veni are currently on a US tour. They recently performed at the Six Flags Amusement Park in New Jersey to a massive crowd of Caribbean music lovers.
