Another year, another set of crowns for Machel Montano. “Mr. Fete” won the Power category again at the International Soca Monarch competiton on Friday with “Ministry of Road (M.O.R.),” narrowly missing a sweep as Kerwin DuBois took Groovy Soca Monarch. “M.O.R.” meanwhile was inescapable at Mas in Port of Spain, taking the Road March title with a whopping 374 plays, more than six times the nearest competitor. In light of his continued success, it’s only appropriate on this Throwback Thursday back to where it all started for Machel.
