Soca history was made at O2 park in Trinidad and Tobago last night!

The Sunset festival held in Trinidad last night was ablaze with epic performances, by headlining acts Major Lazer & Skrillex as well as numerous local acts but the highlight of the night was definitely when Soca rivals Machel Montano and Bunji Garlin actually took the stage together!

After their separate performances, both Soca gods were coaxed back on stage after Major Lazer, asked the crowd of about 6000 people, if they think it’s time the two collaborate on a song.

The response from the crowd was so overwhelming that both Machel and Bunji returned to the stage to show love to their fans together. Fay-Ann (a bit reluctantly) joined her husband on stage. This seemed to signal an outpouring of love from Kes, Olatunji and other soca artistes who joined the trio onstage, amidst chants of ‘more love’ from the crowd, spurred on by Machel.

The stage finally cleared, leaving Machel and Bunji, who began performing together, song for song.

Bunji took the mic saying he wanted to see soca music take over the world
