Must be nice being one of a handful of female radio personalities on urban radio in the Caribbean. Whitney Husbands – the young woman whose voice can be heard on urban frequency, Boomchampions 94.1FM on weekday mornings between 6 and 9am and again each evening between 6pm and 9pm, celebrates her birthday this Friday at the VAS Nightclub in Newtown, Port-of-Spain. She’s promising an all out Bashment with Soca celebrities like Patrice Roberts and Doggy Slaughter a part of her entertainment lineup.
Husbands’ career on radio is pretty young still but her energy says different. Having been involved in entertainment and television for some time before, she was pretty aware of what she’d been getting herself into when she mounted the FM band. Now, she’s becoming a favored choice for hosting duties at major concert events. Last Sunday, she represented as one part of the Make Up Or Break Up Team aboard the Ocean Pelican for Patrice Roberts’ ‘Big Girl Now’ birthday cruise. Her set was lit to say the least.
Nigeria’s Ketchup – the leading dancehall/ Afrobeats artiste who even collaborated with Bunji Garlin on a Walshy Fire produced single called, “No Laziness,” earlier this year, is billed to perform at the event tomorrow night. Tickets are reasonably priced at $100 and patrons are asked to rock all black for the special 30th birthday celebration she’s called, NOIR.
