Thongs Galore, Paparazzi Carnival Adds Its Heat to Another T&T Carnival Showcase, Come 2018.

Paparazzi Carnival launched its 2018 carnival presentation on Saturday night in Port- of -Spain, Trinidad, to a pretty good size crowd at the Government Campus Plaza. The spanking new government facility in the heart of the city offered the ease of parking at the nearby Parkade along Edward Street however, the heat of the night, coupled with the fact that tall buildings surrounded the outdoor feting space, proved a buzz kill for some. Nonetheless, DJs for the night, DJ Niko, Artiste Team, Mixology Muzik, Jet Lee and DJ Duane, kept the energy up with the music, and as the night progressed,  and certainly after the costumes had been presented, patrons loosened up a bit for some true Trini-style fun.

This section, Negazi Rebels, which was collaboratively designed by entertainer, Bitts and local designer, Loud By Afiya, will take carnival by storm in 2018, with the band Paparazzi Carnival.

The band’s theme, Nomadik Nation, according to Paparazzi, was created to bring together the scenes and stories of our journeys, as travelers in a well connected world. The band, in 2018, will display a collection of art, culture, adventure, style, people and stories from around the world, it says. The hues of the 2018 presentation weren’t particularly different from previous carnival mas presentations, however, the band’s designers certainly did what they could to ensure ‘oohs’ and ‘ahhs’ were heard throughout the stage show. Thongs ruled the runway no doubt, as sexy, skinny babes strutted their stuff in wild abandon to the sound of soca music, leaving one to wonder whether carnival truly caters to everyone or whether you’re automatically ousted from the festival if you measure upward of a size 6.

This section is called, Wahkan Warrior.

Soca artiste and actress, Shivonne Church who’s best known as Bitts on the entertainment circuit, made her debut to the mas creation business on Saturday night. Certainly a highlight of Paparazzi’s launch, the costume which was collaboratively designed by the young, ambitious culture lover and T&T designer, Loud By Afiya, got the nod of approval from many. A dark purple, black and white themed design- the costume section, Negazi Rebels was modeled by Athaliah Samuel. Other sections that seemed to be loved by the ladies in the audience in particular were, Mystic Romani, Wahkhan Warrior, Akibahara and Tacana Tribe. The band will deliver ten sections for revelers to choose from ahead of C2K18.
