Archived: Machel Montano Heads Back to The Savannah!

Trinidad and Tobago’s most anticipated fete in Carnival is again atop the minds of many. The King of Soca will take the stage again this year.

Machel Montano’s head might be on the music at the moment, having released a new single called, “Fast Wine” only today, but truth be told, the Soca Taipan has been negotiating his sweet deal with Army Fete organizers. The fete, best known for attracting the biggest crowds annually at the festival dubbed the Greatest Show On Earth, takes place on February 17th at the Queen’s Park Savannah- the epicenter of the excitement!

Montano is yet to release a power soca track but the likelihood of that being done soon, is good. Machel recently performed at the Sunset Festival alongside Major Lazer at O2 Park in Chaguaramas where, as usual, he ripped the place to shreds with his high energy delivery.

Army Fete organizers in a media statement issued yesterday, said all systems are in place and the Taipan of Soca will be headlining the Army Fete 2017 experience. Tickets for the event have been on sale in Trinidad and Tobago at all major retailers since October and online via www.ticketfederation.com simultaneously. Promotion of the fete has also been in high gear in the US TriState area, according to fete organizers and it is expected that the numbers will come out to party till sun up, on February 17th at the Queen’s Park Savannah.

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

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.
