Digicel will be hosting a soca concert in celebration of Republic Day featuring nine soca stars. The show will be broadcasted on TTT and last about one hour and thirty minutes.
The following is a press release from Digicel:
This Republic Day, soca lovers are in for a treat, as nine of this country’s hottest soca stars perform at a special virtual concert hosted by Digicel.
Branded ‘T&T Together’, the concert will feature the 2020 Digicel Ambassadors: Patrice Roberts, Voice, Nadia Batson, Nailah Blackman, Preedy, Rome, Swappi, Sekon Sta, and Nessa Preppy; all backed by the A-Team band.
“Since we cannot celebrate Republic Day in the usual manner due to COVID-19, Digicel is bringing the excitement home to the people of T&T.
The show will be amazing and we hope that the positive energy from the music will bring us together,” commented Colin Greaves, Head of Public Relations at Digicel.
The concert is set to be about one hour and thirty minutes long and features a special tribute to iconic calypsonian Leroy Calliste- the Black Stalin, whose birthday is also on Republic Day.
Digicel has entrusted the show’s production to national broadcaster TTT in hopes that it becomes another example of a successful public /private partnership that delivers excellence. David Roberts, CEO of TTT commented, “With the theme ‘live for local’, TTT is excited to work with Digicel; a private sector partner who continues to demonstrate their commitment to the culture of Trinidad and Tobago.”
T&T Together airs this Thursday 24 September, at 7:30 pm on TTT and will be streamed to DigicelTT’s Facebook Page, TTTLiveOnline and D’Music app.
After Thursday, the show will become available on Digicel Home and Entertainment via the Video on Demand platform and on D’Music.
