Congrats Mr. Machel!

Congrats are in order for Mr. Machel Montano who picked up some solid wins this passed Carnival in Trinidad. Machel won Power Soca Monarch for "Pump Yuh Flag" and Groovy Soca Monarch for "Mr. Fete". Apparently the race for Roadmarch was quite close (the 'Roadmarch' is the song that is played/heard the most when masquerading bands pass judging points and cross the big stage on Carnival Tuesday). The race was between Fay-Ann Lyons' "Miss Behave" and Machel's "Pump Yuh Flag" (included the roadmix there), however special shout out to Iwer George who was also a contender with "No Pain" (and man- his riddim was TOUGH!). Fay-Ann did give Machel a run for his money, The Trinidad Guardian reported masqueraders actually dropping on the ground and rolling in FULL costume on the dirty road (laaaaaawd ah mercy!). However when all was said and done, Machel won Roadmarch for 2012 Carnival. He also won this title last year, let's see if he can do a Roadmarch hattrick for 2013 :) Congrats Machel!
