Sekon Sta Bio:
Nesta Boxill also known as Sekon Sta, has become one of the most promising and multidimensional talents in the Soca Fraternity, boasting great contributions as a writer, performer and recording artist. Son to the deceased veteran artiste, Dennis Franklyn Williams; “Merchant”, Sekon Sta not only has the dedication to the arts but a greater appreciation for the culture, having had a front seat to its inner workings from a very young age. Since his younger years, Sekon Sta believed in the continued development of the art form. It has always been his wish for the spirit of Carnival to be present throughout the year and it is this burning ideology that has fueled his passion.
2014, though, was arguably his break-through year in terms of widespread recognition. Following on from his Crop Over 2014 hit on the June Bomb Riddim entitled “Put in that Work,” his momentum continued into the T&T pre-Carnival 2015 season with him performing “The Best” on the mega hit Kan Kan Riddim, and producing his single, “Maximum.”
These include performances on the Set Good, Gold Medal and Festival868 Riddims as well as a singles such as “Champagne & Soca”, “Drink Anthem” and his mega hit “Magic” in collaboration with Nadia Batson. One of Sekon Sta’s greatest characteristics is his ability to tailor his performance to the crowd. This is a major reason that he was awarded the Carib Breakout Artiste of the Year 2015 and was a Finalist at the 2016 International Soca Monarch. 2017 has brought even bigger strides with “Kngs and Queens.”
The audience can easily resonate with him and quickly become his fans. He believes that music and the art form on a whole is for the people and it is only when the music is presented with an air of freedom and little expense, that its full potential of reach can be attained.
