Unsettling reports on the heels of Saturday night’s Guinness Fully Loaded festival held in Trinidad- this as Rodney Price, the Jamaican entertainer best known by his stage name, Bounty Killer tells fans his reason for walking off the stage mid performance, was that he was not contractually bound to perform on stage with former musical rival, Beenie Man. Ebuzztt.com has been told otherwise by Scorch Music reps.

An article in the Jamaica Observer today is headlined, “Bounty leaves stage during Clash with Beenie Man” It states that Bounty Killer walked off the stage in the middle of a song- for- song segment with Beenie. In response, the ‘Can’t Believe Meh Eyes’ singer took to Instagram saying, “Let me state this clearly the promoters of Guinness fully loaded had never booked me to perform along with Beenie man they booked both me and Beenie as solo acts and think that’s how it works as long as both artiste on the show then we gonna work together nope I told dem that they has to pay for that separately and they did not so in my head I was gonna do what I was paid to do which was my solo set I told one of the promoters I will do my set then call up Beenie at the end and do a few and he said fine I was told I were next after Aidonia only to hear they calling bounty and Beenie together on stage if the ppl noticed it took like 5 minutes for me to came out as I wasn’t gonna bother perform since the promoter thinks that they can put me on the spot but for the love of my Trini fans I just do a short set with Beenie and leave!!

The show on Saturday night was billed as a promotion of peace, love and sound with several sound system clashes lined up amid the concert vibe. Soca heavyweight Bunji Garlin even sent the crowd wild when he unexpectedly answered Beenie’s call for his entry, releasing the venom of his Trini freestyle like only he could, and forcing the dancehall king to tell him, ‘get off mi stage.’ It was all in good fun though.

Skinny Fabulous Touches Down in T&T.

We’re one Caribbean people and so when Trinidad and Tobago’s carnival becomes the focus of Caribbean attention, the stars from across the Lesser Antilles, begin showing up. Skinny Fabulous- Gamal Doyle, has touched down in T&T. We just love Skinny. He’s definitely a force to be reckoned on the Soca circuit and we’ll tell you why.

Skinny’s been sharing his book choices with fans on social media.

Did you know that a couple years ago, Skinny Fabulous and Machel Montano teamed up on a Soca track called, “Go Hard” that  earned them the spotlight on ESPN? It was an amazing accomplishment and for the pair and of course it came with great financial rewards no doubt. Beyond that, Skinny Fabulous is one of those Caribbean artistes who’s been to far off places like Dubai for performances, pleasing audiences that aren’t quite familiar with the sound of Soca music. St. Vincent- the land of his birth, Doyle remains a grounded spirit and in recent weeks he’s been showing his fans how he maintains his calm. He’s been reading while jet setting! His latest book? – ‘The Monk Who Sold His Ferarri’…

Skinny has released a few songs already ahead of T&T’s Carnival excitement. One of our favorites however is ‘Every Gyal’. Check it out below and let us know what you think.

Huge Weekend of Sweetness in T&T. First Reggae then Soca.

Published

on

What a huge weekend! First, reggae hitmaker Chronixx destroyed Trinidad’s Southland, delivering his countless hits to a sea of reggae loving concert goers, then on Sunday, Soca queen, Destra Garcia sends ripples through the entertainment fraternity.

Destra Garcia announces her engagement.

Yes folks, Destra Garcia is officially off the market. The singer who broke her ankle while performing in Bermuda earlier this year, announced her engagement via Instagram on Sunday night.

Posting an image of her engagement ring, the artiste who is possibly the most toured entertainer out of Trinidad and Tobago, revealed that she has managed to keep her engagement a secret for some time. Destra and her daughter’s father, Brian, have been together for a number of years- their daughter, Xaiya, already 7-years-old.

Destra and Brian have been together for years.

The public announcement has however been downplayed by radio personality and comedian, Rachel Price who, during her radio program on RED 96.7FM this morning, subliminally questioned the need for the announcement since the pair have been together for so many years. Such is the norm in the entertainment arena in Trinidad and Tobago these days it seems though. Much scrutiny seems to be pouring out of every nook and cranny leaving us to wonder just how much love is being shared in these parts at all. Anyway, Congratulations to Destra Garcia and her husband to be, Brian. We wish you both many blissful years ahead.
