P.O.S. Trinidad (Sonique Solutions) – After 2 successful editions, Trinidad and Tobago Carnival mas band Fantasy pulled out all the stops for the first major fete of the 2015 season entitled, “Blockbuster Saturday”.

The Soca mega-star who for 2015 is going by the sobriquet Monk Monte, delivered an onslaught of his C2K15 songs such as ‘The Remedy’, ‘Endless Wuk’, ‘Getting On Bad’ and ‘Pop Ah Bottle’.
The Queen’s Park Oval erupted with glee to the one of a kind full band performance by Montano who unleashed several of his past Carnival hits e.g. ‘Haunted’, ‘Epic’, ‘The Fog’, ‘Ministry of Road’ and ‘Band of the Year’ much to desire of the appreciative audience.
Machel was joined onstage by long time band member Framer Nappy who sang the ever popular ‘Big People Party’ as well as his new smash ‘My House’.
