BET Soca Cypher features some of T&T’s top acts

BET’s first ever Soca Cypher featured some of T&T’s top and brightest stars.

Songbird Melly Rose, music producer Stadic, and Travis Harris, Producer of Social Media at BET, present the first Soca Cypher.

The program highlighted six diverse Soca artistes, including Nessa Preppy, Erphaan Alves, Sekon Sta, Preedy, Mical Teja, and Melly Rose.

The special segment premiered on BET Jams on Wednesday, March 2nd.

Creative management, Travis ‘Stadic’ Harris, and Melissa “Melly” St. Rose made the perfect complement to the artistes flowing freely on the riddim.

”Stadic, who also hosts the show with DJ Ana on the turntable, produced the record, and Lee Aleong produced the video filmed by Ten Global Media. The Soca Cypher was produced and filmed at Mahogany Ridge in Trinidad’s picturesque North Coast.“

The trio wanted to reach even more audiences by highlighting where the music has grown, after noting the lack of representation in the international market.

One of those places is Trinidad, home of many talented artistes like Fay-Ann Lyons, Patrice Roberts, Nailah Blackman, Machel Montano, and Melly Rose.

The BET Cypher usually takes place in October every year.
