Battle of the Sexes on fire with supreme entertainment
The people want a musical war and Spektakula is pleased to create the arena for just that, according to promoter Frank Martineau.
Over the years, the Battle of the Sexes has been a highly-anticipated event and this year’s 14th instalment of the ultimate battle for soca supremacy promises not to disappoint. With divas pitched against vikings, supreme entertainment is expected on all counts.
Pick your favourite diva from a cadre of the best in soca and watch them go head-to-head against their viking match-up.
Some of the perennial stalwarts will be there including Bunji Garlin, Fay-Ann Lyons, Destra, Denise Belfon and Iwer George. Bunji, the general of the vikings, will not allow the title to slip from the men’s tight fist. He is still conducting screening exercises in the coming days to finalise a robust team for the men.
Vying for one of the coveted spots on the viking line-up will be soca artiste Lyrikal who is promising to have the women screaming to be “conquered” and Skinny Fabulous bringing his “worse behaviour” to Jean Pierre Complex, Port-of-Spain, on February 8.
On the divas side, woman power will be in full force. Fay-Ann and her team intend to finish the party well before the men get a foothold on the battle stage. With huge crowd-pleaser Belfon bringing up the rear, the challenge has already been issued to the men: Be warned the Battle of the Sexes 14 rages on.
The show guarantees nothing less than the hottest talents for Carnival, on one stage giving their most alluring performances and competitive picong in effort to prove which sex rules the roost of soca.
With both teams gearing up their strengths and strategies and comedic duo Errol Fabien and Nikki Crosby adding to the viking/diva line-up, the Battle of the Sexes will kick off at 7.30 pm.
