'Mr. Hype's' (Bjorn Bassue), Wuk It video was the center of a controversy last week when a local media house published an article questioning the morality of his song, which speaks of stealing his friend’s girlfriend away from him. Responses were overwhelming in support of the performer, and after making placing third in the Groovy semi finals, and first in the Power on Friday night, Mr. Hype thanked his naysayers for the publicity.
“My aim in this whole competition, and this soca show was…to do something that people who enjoy soca music and who enjoy music on a whole would be able to appreciate not just from what they hear, but what they see…so I created something that I know people would find humourous, people who could lighten up a bit. So for the people who try to make the video and my music controversial, all I have to do is say, ‘Thank you.’”
Held on the Old Treasury Apron under threatening skies, the nearly 10 hour long show featured over 40 performances and drew a 'bumper crowd. '
“This was a tremendous evening,” Carnival Committee Chair Sylvester Anthony said following the show.
An additional competitor will be selected by the public via a texting platform. Those performers will be announced on Tuesday.
Reigning Power and Groovy Soca Monarch 'Takeover' will defend his crowns at the Finals next week Friday (December 20th).
