Jumo ‘Rubber Waist’ Primo was on Thursday confirmed as the 60th artiste to compete in the Soca Monarch semi finals slated for January 17 in Trinidad and Tobago.
Primo will reportedly be singing his Carib Soca Monarch tune ‘Unruly’.
The Guyanese singer was already selected to compete in the Chutney Soca Monarch competition with his tune ‘Off the Rocks’ billed for Saturday evening, also in Trinidad.
An elated Primo said it is an honour to be representing Guyana on the international stage at not one competition, but two.
Now that he has been called upon to represent Guyana, he intends to do so to the best of his ability as he aims to win the competitions.
At the Chutney Soca Monarch, he will be competing against the big guns, such as Rikki Jai, Ravi B, Omardatt Maharaj, KI, Nishard M, Raymond Ramnarine and others while in the Soca Monarch, he will clash with Destra, Bunji Garlin, Machel Montano, Kees and the other popular names in the business.
Although Primo is aware that the competitions will be stiff, he is of the view that “things are possible”. His first aim is to make it to the finals of the International Chutney Soca Monarch, concentrating on promoting his song ‘Unruly’ for the soca competition.
