Sekon Sta’s Sekon Sunday Success Continues In 2023

Written by: Nekisha 'Neicy' Cyrus

The Sekon Sta’s success train continues with yet another spectacular Sekon Sunday event. Paying homage to the capital city of Port of Spain, Nesta ‘Sekon Sta’ Boxill delivered yet another amazing event at the Fatima College Grounds, Mucurapo Road, St James on Sunday 15th January 2023.

The fourth edition of the popular Fetecert (Fete/ Concert) event celebrated in patriotic style as patrons adhered to the white and red dress code that was in full effect.

The son of the late great calypsonian, ‘Merchant’, Sekon Sta continues to earn the respect, love, and support of his peers and fans as he consistently delivers and contributes to the musical and cultural fabric of Trinidad and Tobago.

The event had one of the biggest soca cast line-ups for the season which included stars like College Boy Jesse, Nadia Batson, Preedy, Olatunji, Iwer George, Jaiga, Problem Child, Ricardo Drue, Kernal Roberts, Shal Marshall, Viking Ding Dong, Mical Teja, Nailah Blackman, Yung Bredda and so much more.

But of course, the night belonged to the tallest man in the industry who delivered yet another epic presentation of his impressively growing repertoire.  Sekon Sta graced the stage just after 10 pm with a firework-led entrance to the band playing his 2023 hit ‘Soca Capital (Port of Spain)’. He also performed many of his popular hits including some of his ‘Kings and Queens’, ‘No Feteing Behaviour’, ‘The Best’, ‘Brave’ and many more.

One of the major highlights of the night included the Sekon Sta paying homage to the recently departed calypso icons Explainer (Winston Henry) and Black Stalin (Leroy Calliste) with an old school medley that included their respective hits ‘Lorraine’, ‘Come With It’, ‘Feeling to Party’ and ‘Caribbean Man’. Pannists Johann Chuckaree and Joshua Regrello joined him on stage for the tribute.

Another epic memorable highlight of the night included Soca icons Ronnie McIntosh and SuperBlue joining Sekon Sta on stage to perform a medley of their feting anthems throughout the year. Both artistes were also honored with lifetime achievement awards presented to them by officials from the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and the Arts.

All in all, as the curtain closed on yet another milestone Sekon Sunday event, we at Caribbean Entertainment Hub would like to say congratulations to Sekon Sta and the entire EEEmpire team on a job well done. Check out more live performances from our ‘Sekon Sunday 2023’ full coverage below!
