Yet another prominent soca artiste will not compete in the Lotto Plus Soca Monarch on Fantastic Friday this year.

Destra Garcia, also known as “The Queen of Bacchanal” did not enter the competition.

Garcia follows the likes of reigning four-time consecutive International Power Soca Monarch winner Machel Montano, and reigning Groovy Soca Monarch winner Olatunji, who have bowed out of this year’s competition.

Soca power couple Ian “Bunji Garlin” Alvarez and Fay-Ann Lyons-Alvarez pulled out of the show three years ago.
