International soca sensation Hollice Mapp aka Mr Killa continues to make inroads on soca’s biggest stage, as the countdown continues to the climax of carnival in Trinidad & Tobago.
Killa is among four Grenadian artistes to have qualified for the semi-finals of the International Power Soca Monarch and Groovy Monarch carded for later this month.
Killa has advanced to the semi-finals of the power soca along with Skinny Banton and Andrew Hitz Phillips while Tallpree made it to the semi-finals of the International Groovy Monarch.
Killa placed second to Machel Montano in last year’s power soca finals, a decision which did not go down well in many quarters of the Caribbean.
He has surfaced as an artiste in constant demand, riding a wave of popularity with his hit song Rolly Polly and attention grabbing stage performances.
Over 350 hopefuls performed in the preliminary round of the International Soca Monarch competition 2015.
After the competition, the field was narrowed to 35 competing for the Lotto Plus International Power Soca Monarch Title and 45 competitors for the Digicel International Groovy Soca Monarch.
The semi-finals are carded for the Queen’s Park Savannah, Port of Spain, on 25 January.
