Bermuda’s Inaugural Soca Xplosion a Success – Barbados in Hamilton
The beginning of October saw Roy Lynch of White Tiger Promotions hosting the first ever Soca Xplosion at Snokel Park in Bermuda. The lineup for this event included Lil? Bits, Denise Belfon, Ghetto Flex, and Ziggy Rankin from Trinidad, Zoela from St. Vincent, Biggie Irie and Peter Ram from Barbados and entertainers from the local pool. From the time the artistes arrived on the hooked shaped island in the North Atlantic, it was non-stop activity. They hit the ground running with a series of radio interviews and promotional appearances coordinated by John Jureidini, and continued in this trend right up to performance time. Based on the turnout for the event and the overall reaction of the crowd to the high energy performances by both local and regional artistes Soca Xplosion was a success.
Consequently, the promoter was pleased to say the least and plans to make this an annual event on the entertainment calendar for Bermuda?s soca enthusiasts.
