A weekend reminder that rest and relaxation does exist. Soca heartthrob, Ricardo Drue spent last weekend on the beautiful island of St. Lucia where he bore witness to the marriage of two of his very close friends. It was a good reality check for the ‘Stamp Yuh Name’ singer who’s been jetting across the region and internationally for months. With several projects high on his priority list, Ricardo shows no sign of slowing down and he admits, quality time with family is most missed. The artiste, whose front line status with the Roy Cape band is only the beginning of his professional pursuits, has major feats to conquer this year and he’ll stop at nothing.

Ricardo Drue has been traveling from city to city, non stop since carnival 2017.

In the past few months, following Trinidad and Tobago’s Carnival 2017 festival, Drue has travelled to Toronto, Antigua, Jamaica- two weeks prior to Jamaica’s carnival, St. Martin, St. Thomas, Bahamas, and after that he jetted over to Los Angeles where he met up with production team, Mad Decent. He recently signed a deal with the group for the re-release of his hit single ‘Vagabond’ and with a thrust being made to take the single to the mainstream global music market, Ricardo’s definitely in for the ride of his life in the next few weeks and months. He said a new video is being done for the single- something fans will be blown away by.

A few weeks ago, he was pulled in by Mad Decent to represent for them as they launched a speaker. A couple international interviews presented even more opportunities for the young, Caribbean entertainer to shine internationally. “It’s been quite a ride so far and things have only just begun. I’m enjoying every moment of it though. There’s nothing for me to complain about. I truly believe victory comes to those who put in the work so my team and I are pushing hard,” he said. Ricardo’s been making a lot of strides, this despite the fact that he’s yet to taste the success of capturing a major crown in Trinidad and Tobago. He has however been a king in his birthplace of Antigua and continues to thank his supporters there, for the love they constantly show him. On August 1st, Drue will present his first concert showcase in Antigua. Dubbed ‘Druesday’ the concert will see the merging of several Caribbean music genres and the collaborative energy of a number of local and international performers, who’ll share the stage with him on what he promises will be a very special night.

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!”
