Defending Party Soca Monarch Superman HD has withdrawn from the 2013 competition due to ill health. Below is a statement from his management team.
OaktreeZ Inc, the entity responsible for the talent management of Kwency Griffith aka Mr. Pringles aka Superman HD, the reigning Party Soca Monarch of St. Lucia, wishes to inform the St. Lucia Carnival Stakeholders and all the necessary entities, including the general public, of his formal withdrawal from the 2013 St. Lucia Party Monarch Competition.
His health has become increasingly questionable and is currently undergoing continuous test and treatment. His managers, producers and some key persons involved in his camp, have determined that despite his reluctance, the demand and intensity of competition would only worsen his situation. He will honour his commitments to the private events who have already engaged him however his 2013 presentation will be too traumatic on his body.
We regret this situation and when Kwency’s health is stabilized he can continue to be the entertainer St. Lucia loves. In the meantime, we will continue to do our part in making this 2013 festival the best it can be.
Thank you for supporting Kwency and his family at this time.
