NEW!! Video: Soca King Machel Montano performing as a little kid (1986)

by Natalie Monique

Trinidadian Soca Monarch Machel Montano is rightfully known as ‘Mr Fete’… as a line from the song goes, ‘They call me Mr Fete, from I born, I never miss one yet….’.

He was so right….as the International Soca artiste Machel was owning the stage from a young babe in the little island Trinidad, to now selling out concerts all over the world. In 1987, he was the youngest finalist to ever win the Caribbean Song festival . (Wikipedia)

Check out young Machel, as he performs one of his ‘then’ hit songs ‘Too Young To Soca’ in front of a huge crowd at Dimanche gras in 1986. ( the song which had actually brought him to fame at age 9), He was going in on stage as anyone his senior.

Certainly handling it like a little MAN, proving to the world he was not ‘too young to soca’…got those moves down pat, lol … Adorably Awesome!!

Respect to Machel Montano repping for Soca Music….always taking the Caribbean to the world!
