The government of Grenada says it stands behind soca sensation Hollis “Mr Killa” Mapp and his decision not to defend his title at the International Soca Monarch (ISM) finals in Trinidad and Tobago.  

The issue was addressed during a Post Cabinet media briefing in Grenada today, Tuesday, February 18.  

Minister of Youth Development Kate Lewis said:

“We know he has done an outstanding job at last year’s International Soca Monarch. He has been one of our most outstanding artistes.  

"We believe that whenever he makes a decision, he makes it in his best interest and the best interest of our country, and we will support him and his decision taken.”  

Minister Lewis said Grenada hopes its other artistes Skinny Banton as well as Luni Spark and Electrify will bring home the crown in the competition's groovy and power soca categories respectively.  

She says the Division of Culture as customary, provides support once Grenada’s artistes get into the final of the competition.  

Culture Minister Norland Cox will be present at the International Soca Monarch final on February 21 to provide further support for Grenada’s artistes.  

“I wish them all the best and hope that they can bring the crown home as we know they have the ability to do so,” said Minister Lewis.
