REIGNING Carib Soca Monarch, Jumo ‘Rubber Waist’ Primo was announced the 2015 Road March King by the Mashramani Secretariat last Wednesday evening. He won the title with his tune “Unruly” which also dominated at the Carib Soca Monarch, 2015.

This is the first time that the X2 artiste has won the title but he has entered the competition twice before with, “The Road” and “One People”.
In a recent interview, he explained that the two previous songs were entered by his recording studio, Kross Kolors, but this year he thought that he had put a lot into promoting the song and therefore he got his double success in less than two weeks.
“It is indeed a great feeling… I am really excited and grateful… it shows that hard work and dedication along with prayers pay off… If you can dedicate yourself to something that you believe in, you can achieve anything,” the accomplished Soca sensation related.
The self-proclaimed ‘people’s champion’ promises to be the best he can be. He also said that he will continue working hard to release quality music for his fans. “I just want to make them happy,” he declared.
At present he has a brand new song titled “Mr Mash” which has been creating some stir on the local airwaves. He is expected to record the video for “Like talk” and the video for ‘Mr Mash’ will be released soon.
He will concentrate on the release of a new song for 2016 and is excited about representing Guyana at the International Soca Monarch in Trinidad next year. He plans to visit the twin island republic prior to the competition to promote his tune.
Ever since he has been crowned Carib Soca Monarch, Primo has been receiving calls from Antigua, St. Maarten, Canada and the US which he claims is a great feeling. The successes, he added, could not have been possible without the support of the many bands that played his tune on Mash Day, the deejays, Kross Kolors Studio, his team, fans and the media.
He also expressed gratitude to the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sport for keeping Mash alive as well as Ansa McAl and the Heatwaves Band.
