Leonce says she is ready to hit the stage at SocaSoakHer.

One of the biggest events to hit Trinidad and Tobago prior to what is likely to be another epic Carnival season, will be SocaSoakHer. The event goes down at Guaracara Park, in South Trinidad on Saturday night. Promotion leading up to the mammoth outdoor fete, which will see some 1000 women enter the venue FREE, has been powerful and  truly energetic. Leonce – one part of the frontline of New York City’s Request Band has flown in for the weekend and already she’s amped. In a chat with EBUZZTT.COM earlier, the “Touch De Road” singer said she’s beyond excited to perform at SocaSoakHer.

A number of top notch females are billed in the lineup. Destra with her full band, Patrice Roberts, Nadia Batson and SASS and Denise Belfon will form the female powerhouse lineup, however, not to be outdone, the likes of entertainment sensations, Bubbles, Cardi Gray, Sasha Melody, Tobago’s Adana, Jo Jo, Krystal Khayne, Leonce, Nenita, Jadel and Nelly Cottoy, will bring added heat to what the organizer is promising, will be a memorable water event. Ticket prices have been set affordably with women even having the option to couple up and enter on one ticket. Their male counterparts pay just $200 to enter. John Michael Alibocus, the man best known as Makamillion, known for his ability to truly promote massive events in the Southland, told Ebuzztt that this showcase of the best female acts in T&T, will deliver to patrons, a good look at what these women are truly capable of executing. He however assured that the party will not be an exclusive Soca fete. “We have to remember that we’re still in the crossroads between Christmas and Carnival. The aim is to just give patrons a memorable event so we’re not boxing it in. We’re delivering fun, good vibes, a secure environment and non stop entertainment across the board on show night. This is not an event to miss. We’ve also organized shuttle buses from various points so people can come out, flex, enjoy and not have to drive home after drinking. We want everybody to be safe,” said Alibocas.

On Thursday, Destra Garcia was among a promo contingent making the rounds. Earlier in the day, photos emerged of the Soca hit maker stepping confidently on her ankle, giving us some assurance that she would be near perfect for the stage, come Saturday night. The SocaSoakHer event is the first of what is expected to be an annual pre-Carnival showcase of the Carnival hitmakers and the DJs and radio personalities who take the season to its full glory by the month of February. The lineup will also include MX Prime- the reigning Road March King, Kes The Band, Orlando Octave, Kerry John, Swappi, Farmer Nappy, Dev, S Carter, Yankey Boy, Voice, Iwer George, Jahmel and Makamillion himself. The show will be hosted by well known radio personality turned artist, Smooth.

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.



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!”
