CEO and founder of Question Mark Entertainment, Simon Baptiste, has been appointed as Creative Director of the International Soca Monarch.
His nomination comes days after former chairman, Fay Ann Lyons-Alvarez renounced her position, claiming a lack of resources and time to organize this year’s celebrations.
According to a post on social media, Lyons-Alvarez stated:
“I believe in giving the public a Soca Monarch they deserve and with limited time, it becomes harder to accomplish…”
According to Geoffrey Wharton Lake, director of the International Soca Monarch, Baptiste—who had experience managing artistes—was approached to take up the job and he accepted.
Baptiste was the former manager of Kes The Band and also worked closely with several other soca artistes.
