New York, NY – Soca star Darryl “Farmer Nappy” Henry brings the spirit of Trinidad Carnival to the global masses with his new album Big People Party, now available worldwide from all major digital retailers, as well as physical CD in stores, from FOX FUSE. Celebrating over 30 years in music, the accomplished and acclaimed Trinidadian singer/songwriter delivers the very best that soca music has to offer with this new collection of hits on his third full-length studio effort. It is the only album that is released internationally by an artist during Trinidad’s Carnival 2014 season.
“It’s an amazing feeling to put out two albums in two years, and also being the only soca artist to release an album worldwide during this Carnival season, so the fans here at Trinidad Carnival and also across the globe can enjoy the sweet sounds of soca,” states Farmer Nappy. “I’m really grateful with the reception of the album Big People Party and the lead single ‘Big People Party,’ which is playing non-stop on radio and is a crowd favorite at all the shows. A big thanks to everyone who worked on this album with me and also to everyone who is supporting me.”
Blazing across airwaves and on playlists at fetes and festivals with his new blockbuster smash single “Big People Party,” Farmer Nappy is a top contender in the 2014 International Groovy Soca Monarch Competition, already securing his place in the finals, which takes place on “Fantastic Friday,” February 28 at the national stadium in Port of Spain, Trinidad.

Adding fuel to his fire, Monster Energy Drink has partnered with Farmer Nappy to be its brand ambassador from now through the Carnival 2015 season, further cementing his role as the prime representative for soca music, both at home and beyond. “Making Farmer Nappy an official ambassador was a decision that took little thought,” discloses Monster Energy Brand manager, Leigh Inalsingh. “Monster Energy sees themselves as more than an energy drink, they see themselves as a lifestyle in a can, and this made soca star Farmer Nappy the perfect fit.” Jonas Zakour, Monster’s Regional Manager, describes Farmer Nappy as “energetic, hardworking and talented, everything that the brand represents.” He adds, “We are excited to have him as an official member of the Monster Energy family.”
