For those who have been on the IBSM stage in the past, it will be business as usual, but for some who will be hitting the stage for the first time, it will be a dream come true.

SK is in the cut this year and he will be shifting gears - from first, second, park to reverse at the IBSM finals for the first time with his release "Reverse" on the V Neck Riddim.

Chatting with Loop, the elated young artist was adamant that he would be making "double history" this year and luckily for him he is already halfway there.

"I feel really excited about being in the finals! It's my first time getting this far and I gine make sure it is my first win too!

"I making history this year twice!" he professed.

For those who voted him through to the finals of the competition he sent "nuff love and respect".

"Thanks to all the supporters who voted for me to get me here. It feels good to know there are people out there supporting my career from the shadows. Nuff love and respect."

On finals night SK promises to put his best foot forward as he attempts to give a performance like no other.

"Finals night is gonna be epic guys!"

Laughing, he added, "I coming to turn de beach upside down first then reverse it. I will be bringing my all on that night." And at the end of the night SK hopes to take the bashment soca crown "with seats and moving".
