2012 Soca Monarch Gamal “Skinny Fabulous” Doyle says he is not disheartened by having to enter the Trinidad Soca Monarch competition at the semi-finals level.

KINGSTOWN, St. Vincent – “Monster” Gamal “Skinny Fabulous” Doyle, who was crowned Soca Monarch on Saturday, is not fazed by having to enter the International Soca Monarch competition in Trinidad next year at the semi-final round.

Previously, winners of national soca monarch competitions entered the event as finalists, but organisers have changed that arrangement.

“Well, yeah. That is a disappointment too but then again, everything has to be done on merit,” Doyle told I-Witness News after being crowned Saturday night.

“… on one hand I understand why Mr. Monroe or the Prestige Co. in Trinidad might have decided, ‘Listen let them come and prove theyself.’ So, I understand it. But I am not fearful of having to climb up one ladder before it because a monster can climb’,” Skinny said.

His “monster” comment was in reference to the name of the song that earned him his fourth Soca Monarch title on Saturday.
