Did Bass Say That? Meanwhile, Leon Coldero’s Delivering. Now DJs BITE!

Published

on

Here’s one thing radio DJs can never say- “the artistes aren’t giving us the music.”

That’s for sure. In fact, the music’s coming hard and heavy and the money’s being spent to ensure the recordings are on par with international standards. So angered by the desire to hear more of the new music was radio personality and artiste, Bass this morning, that while on his radio show on Boomchampions 94.1FM, he sternly called on DJ’s to play the new music.

Bass subliminally scolded DJs this morning, urging them to play the new music. He too has released a new Soca Parang track. 

Entertainer, Leon Coldero.

T&T artiste, Leon Coldero and others in the entertainment arena may not have that much clout so what they continue to do is spend their hard earned money to deliver the product they feel will add to the overall vibe of the season. Coldero’s a unique entertainer though. He’s dished out both Christmas and carnival music. His two Christmas songs, ‘Soca Parang Nice,’ which was produced by Optimus Productions TT Ltd, and “Parang in the Sun,’ a track produced by Mastamind Productions and written by Ruthven Le Quay, have been receiving the love of Soca parang lovers so far and Coldero admits to being booked up for the season, already.

He’s now focusing his attention on the Carnival 2018 landscape. On Friday, the entertainer who hails from South Trinidad but resides primarily in Florida, unleashed his first contribution for Carnival- a track called, “Turn It Around.” This too was produced by Optimus Productions TT Ltd- a unit Coldero has a lot of confidence in. A second carnival single will be unleashed in the very near future, he told us. Eager to be a part of the Christmas and Carnival excitement in T&T, Coldero, who hasn’t spent a single Christmas at home in T&T, for the past 30 years, says, there’s nothing like the nostalgia he’s experiencing now.

The islands, many have attested, is the ideal place to spend the Christmas. For one, the smell of Caribbean Christmas cuisine is second to none. Coldero recently told the media that while he’s been capably covering those bases in Florida, there’s truly something special about enjoying the Christmas delicacies at home in T&T.

Bass Says it Loud and Clear! He Wants More Brotherhood in T&T After Murder Suicide in Carenage.

Bass calls on men to help each other.

A murder suicide in the Carenage area of West Trinidad on Saturday has sent ripples through the country. The young woman shot and killed, was the mother of a three -year- old boy. Her daughter’s father subsequently killed himself, leaving a note to his son, saying simply, “Sorry”. Entertainer and radio personality, Adrian Hackshaw, the man best known as Third Bass, says it’s time for men to help each other.

In a social media post on Saturday, Bass said:

 “Men, let’s start talking to help each other deal with our emotions better…. PLEASE. #BrotherBrother #goodness.”

It isn’t the first time that the often vocal radio mic man has given vent to his personal emotions on social issues. In a subsequent social media post, later in the evening, Bass questioned whether the situation that unraveled in Carnage, could’ve been prevented. He questioned whether anyone of the couple’s friends or family members had attempted to intervene or were otherwise told to stay out of it.

Domestic Violence and its effect on children, family members and by extension, society, remains a topic of much study. In Minnesota, a small community called, Duluth has effected the Deluth model of dealing with Domestic Violence. This is what it is:

 Duluth Model approach Employs the following:

  • Takes the blame off the victim and places the accountability for abuse on the offender.
  •  Shares policies and procedures for holding offenders accountable and keeping victims safe across all agencies in the criminal and civil justice systems from contacting the police to the entering the court system.
  • Prioritizes the voices and experiences of women who experience battering in the creation of those policies and procedures.
  • Believes that battering is a pattern of actions used to intentionally control or dominate an intimate partner and actively works to change societal conditions that support men’s use of tactics of power and control over women.
  • Offers change opportunities for offenders through court-ordered educational groups for batterers.
  • Has ongoing discussions between criminal and civil justice agencies, community members and victims to close gaps and improve the community’s response to battering.

Machel Montano and Kernel Roberts Win Court Appeal in Zen Fracas Case.

Published

Machel Montano on stage.

The case involving Soca heavyweight Machel Montano and his former band mate, producer, Kernal Roberts yesterday reached another milestone with a ruling that saw the appeal won by the entertainers. The Zen Nightclub incident case has spanned almost a decade. Montano, who has been relatively quiet in recent weeks, showing fans more of a spiritual side on his social media platforms, is undoubtedly planning his Carnival 2018 season. Speculation is rife that top names in music internationally, may be included in the Machel Monday lineup, once again in 2018.

We spoke with Montano’s mother, Elizabeth Montano yesterday. She explained that there will be a retrial of the case, despite the duo having won the appeal. Mrs. Montano told us that the reason given for this is simply the fact that Montano and Roberts are public figures, Montano being an icon in his own right, and based on public interest in the case, a retrial was thought necessary by the judge.

Montano meanwhile, yesterday took to social media to thank fellow artistes, Bunji Garlin and Fay Ann Lyons for the past year, having worked closely with them after the release of the single, “Buss Head.”

He said:

“It was a real blessing for @chekothari, my team and I to partner with @bunjigarlin, @fayannlyons and the entire #Viking#GroundEmpire team for the Buss Head Tour. We developed not only a business relationship, but a true friendship. We received an overwhelming amount of love and support at every stop along the Tour – Toronto, Barbados, London, New York and Miami. Sending much love to the global Soca Massive that supported this song and movement. Much more to come! Respect!”
