A new single already gaining some momentum and the love of  T&T’s people are just two reasons St. Lucia’s Teddyson John’s revved and ready to come back to Trinidad and Tobago for next year’s carnival. He was apart of the One Island concert event held at the Queen’s Park Oval in Trinidad- an effort aimed at helping those in need across the islands, following the passage of Hurricanes Irma and Maria. John said he didn’t think twice when asked to come and offer his service. More than anything, the always upbeat Soca artist told EBUZZTT that he understands the need for unity at a time like this.

John’s new single, “Mile High” which is on the Jack Frost Riddim, produced by Bass Ink, is another positive single- laced with words of comfort for people who truly need it. Teddyson’s vocals are insanely sweet on this one- but truth be told, this artist is known for vocal clarity and sweetness. Remember ‘Allez’ in 2016? He killed it.

John will be around the city of Port-of-Spain, Trinidad for the next few days before heading to Miami carnival, much like all of the other soca stars who’ll be wrapping up their touring schedule at Miami carnival.

Next up of course is T&T’s Greatest Show on Earth.

“I’m so ready. I’m happy to be back with ‘D All Stars. It’s a great unit of musicians and people. We all enjoy delivering for the fans and our aim is to simply make the people happy.”- Teddyson John.

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.
