Skinny, Machel save day for Jamaican dancehall star

Gamal ‘Skinny Fabulous’ Doyle and Machel Montano may have played the ‘saviour role’ at last Friday’s Ragga Soca competition, during the performance of Jamaican guest artiste, dancehall star Konshens.{{more}}

About halfway through belting out some of his hits, such as ‘Bubble Gyal’ and ‘Winner’, it was obvious that Konshens’ performance was not winning the crowd over.

Without notice, Trinidadian Soca superstar Machel Montano ran onto the stage, causing the crowd to go wild for the man who has become known as “Mr Fete”. Montano, who was in the country for the Lime H20 wet fete party on Saturday, had the crowd in full party mood, with some women even climbing on to the barricades to get a closer look at the Soca star and to snap photographs.

Within a matter of seconds, local soca giant, Gamal ‘Skinny Fabulous’ Doyle, also unannounced, rushed on stage and added to the frenzy the crowd was already in.

The three-time soca monarch gave patrons a taste of what he has in store for them come Saturday, July 7, when he will try to dethrone reigning soca monarch Delroy “Fireman” Hooper with his song ‘Monster’, which is undoubtedly one of the biggest hits for Vincy Mas 2012.
