Nailah Blackman’s on FIRE! This chick isn’t playing around. In fact, she’s wildin’ out and the Caribbean’s loving her bad ass, care free vibe.

New videos, new music and simultaneous, spirited execution, have us here at EBUZZTT.COM screaming, “YES! THAT’S HOW IT’S DONE!” The granddaughter of the man who created the rhythmic Soca flavour would be so proud in this very moment, we believe, as his daughter’s offspring carries this intrinsic blend of modern day musical swag and those fused Afro and Indo beats to a different level, penetrating the industry like nothing we’ve seen in some time. Nailah’s got it!

Set to welcome her 20th year of life with an official concert event called ‘Sokah Origins’ on December 2nd, Blackman will release her EP at San Fernando Hill alongside her friends in music, among them, Erphaan Alves, Sekon Sta, Preedy, Patrice Roberts, Voice and Marge Blackman, Isaac Blackman and even Jamaican dancehall sensation, Shenseea with whom Blackman collaborated a few months ago.

These days, a newly released single she coined “SOKAH”- the original spelling of what we now call, ‘Soca’, hears Blackman pay tribute to the late, great Ras Shorty I- her grandfather to whom all credit is owed when it comes to the creation of this purely Trinbagonian musical genre.

A video which was simultaneously released with the track offers glimpses of the past and fuses it with futuristic mouthfuls of youthful talk of diamond grills and girls gone wild. The video also sees cultural homage paid to Steelpan maestro, Len Boogsie Sharpe and East Indian cultural ambassador, Mungal Patasar. Check it out and be sure to let us know how you feel about it all in our comments section below. And hey, before you leave the site, CHECK THIS OUT.

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!”
