Bunji Garlin and Fay-Ann Lyons-Alvarez are the Visit Trinidad Road March Race champions. The announcement was made by the Trinbago Unified Calypsonians Organization (TUCO).
The Road March is a highly anticipated competition held during the annual Carnival celebrations in Trinidad and Tobago, where the most played song during the parade route is declared the winner.
Hard Fete was the most-played song at judging points, according to official results released by the Trinbago Unified Calypsonians Organisation (TUCO), with 135 plays.
"Come Home" by Nailah Blackman and Skinny Fabulous came in second with 106 plays. With 50 plays, Machel Montano and Patrice Roberts' "Like Yuh Self" finished third.
This is Garlin's second Road March title, but his first as a solo performer. His first single, "Famalay," was released in 2019 in collaboration with Montano and Skinny Fabulous.
The couple has expressed their gratitude and excitement for winning the Road March title once again, and have thanked their fans and supporters for their continued love and support. Their win is a testament to their talent and hard work, and cements their place as two of the most popular and influential soca artists in Trinidad and Tobago.
Fay-Ann had three previous Road titles, but this was her first victory since 2009.
The Road March winners receive a TT$250,000 prize from TUCO. The cash prize will be awarded to one household this year.
