After having only recently departed for an intense Trinidad Carnival season and ‘Allez’ Tour, Teddyson John (TJ) continues to soar as he advances to the Semi Finals of the International Soca Monarch in Trinidad
John, who entered the competition through the submission of his hit song ‘Allez’, for the preliminary competition in December, is one of fifty-nine and the lone St. Lucian to advance to the Semi Final stage.
TJ is also set to compete in the ‘Carib Breakout Artist for the Year’ Competition.
This competition will be judged strictly by Digital media which will include social media and text messages for which all results will be based on fan votes.
The Breakout Artist of the Year competition also falls under the jurisdiction of the organizers of the International Soca Monarch.
Traditionally held in previous years on Carnival Friday and dubbed Fantastic Friday, the competition has under gone some new changes for 2016 as they celebrate twenty-four years.
The International Groovy Soca Monarch and International Power Soca Monarch competitions for which the top four winners are announced in each category now falls under one monarch as International Soca Monarch 2016 for which one person will be crowned.
Speaking on the recent development promoter Alfred Teddy Z Fontinelle says this time around TJ has really done his homework.
