In a video posted to the social media pages of soca artistes Skinny Fabulous, David Benjamin graces the stage in an energetic performance of Conch Shell. Iwer George joined Machel Montano and Skinny Fabulous in their latest hit for the 2020 Carnival Season.
The song is accentuated by the lifelike blowing of the traditional conch shell during its chorus. David Benjamin, a fisherman from Mahaut, is seen in the video startling the crowd with his skills that so perfectly mimicked the sample in the song.
Dominican Krishna ‘Dada’ Lawrence produced Conch Shell after a successful 2019 Carnival Season with his work on ‘Famalay’. Dada’s work has undoubtedly influenced a new trend of Dominican Bouyon infusion into the Soca arena. Although many soca fans have mixed feelings about the collaboration, Dominicans appear to be most proud about it.
Conch Shell also came as surprised by many fans, given the public tension between Iwer and Machel last year. Both artists released songs the previous year directed at each other. However, before the end of the carnival season, they put their differences aside.
