Veteran Soca artist Machel Montano has received the keys to the capital of Trinidad and Tobago, Port of Spain.
For those of you who don’t know, Montano is currently celebrating 40 years in soca this year, and he was presented with the keys to the capital during a special meeting with the Port of Spain Municipal Corporation at Adam Smith Square.
The King of Soca expressed his gratitude for this honor and said, “The key to success is consistency, integrity putting your best foot forward, being fully involved, but most importantly, doing it in the service of mankind.”
He continued, “This is why I do music. This is why I’m here today celebrating 40 years of serving my family, my friends, and most importantly, my fans. This key is another opportunity for me to go another 20 years and inspire others.”
This honor comes days after it was announced that Machel Montano will be celebrating his 40 years in soca with a concert at the Barclays Center on September 5th.
Congratulations to Machel Montano.
