Devon Matthews with his DJ of 18 years, Shot Master J.

Matthews lived a blessed and beautiful life. The sentiments echoed by members of the entertainment fraternity, have been overwhelming to say the least- all positive and consoling. Matthews had touched just about everyone in a special way. His DJ and friend for the past 18 years, Shot Master J, said:

“18yrs as a team we did it,no one could imagine what I feeling right now. I introduced him to radio on 98.9 when he was still in his teens because he had that drive and passion I was looking for in a mic man RIP brother and may god bless your soul and your mommy.”

A part of Bunji Garlin and Fay Ann Lyons’ Asylum Vikings, for the past year or so, Matthews had made a strong impact on the team at Asylum. Bunji Garlin, in a brief chat with Ebuzztt this morning simply said, “Tomorrow really is promised to no one. Gosh, this is tough.” On social media, Fay Ann Lyons said :

“RIP my brother. Lord knows we will miss you. #journey… you have to walk the rest without us.”

On Saturday night, Devon’s last post read:

“One life to live and I’m gonna live it . That moment when you like wta you doing and a voice in your head says dawg you have a #beard now . #pullback#fire #fireblower #fun #justdoit #tolate#devon #devonmatthews #culture#idoitlikeaboss #tryit #jab #comingsoonwonder if you really had to hit your chest to I feel that’s shit he on”- Devon Matthews (July 15th, 2017)

Skinny Fabulous Touches Down in T&T.

Published

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.
