WATCH: Machel, Superblue reign over Soaka as prices skyrocket

Desperation drove some people to pay as much as $2,000 for a ticket to the much anticipated Soaka cooler fete on Saturday night/Sunday morning.

Trinis could be seen clamouring for tickets on social media as the frenzy to attend the popular fete reached peak hysteria on Saturday night. 

One man advertised his tickets for sale for $2,000 on Facebook, replying moments later that the ticket had been sold. 


Some criticised the high ticket re-sale prices, calling it unethical.

However, others seemed willing to pay the exorbitant prices.

Video footage shared online on Sunday morning showed soca legends Machel Montano and Super Blue taking the crown by storm as torrents of water cooled down the hyped-up crowd:
