Who does that!? Soca superstar Machel Montano has a way about him, doesn’t he? Just when you think the guy is laying low and doing things in a traditional way, he stirs up some action and get’s everyone talking. This past weekend, several of the Carnival circuit’s big names gathered in the Bahamas where the Junkanoo festival caused a scene. Montano was among them. The entertainer who’s seemingly been savoring the sweetness of being with his love interest, Renee Butcher, in recent weeks, was a part of the action at Farmer Nappy’s surprise birthday party in the Bahamas, among other things, but what caught us off guard- likewise those who were there to catch the action first hand, was Montano’s ocean surprise.
In a post Junkanoo boat ride dubbed ‘Suits’, Montano made an appearance, but trust and believe, this was no ordinary appearance. The Taipan of Soca, together with his manager, Che Kothari and others, had hopped aboard a yacht and sailing beside the sprawling ocean liner, an Instagram LIVE video showed the ‘Fast Wine’ singer sipping on a drink while dancing, seemingly readying himself to let his fans know that he was there- just not on the vessel that they were sailing on.
Montano seemed happy to create the excitement. The DJ on board the vessel eventually shared the fact that the artiste was sailing on the ocean alongside the party boat- motioning fetters to look over the side of the vessel. It was all a thrill from there on, as a microphone was presented to the artiste and in true Machel Montano fashion, the multiple time Road March winner gave the people a show like only he could, making the yacht his stage just for that moment.
Machel’s been having some very down-to-earth moments in recent weeks. He was spotted on Ariapita Avenue after attending radio personality, Whitney Husbands’ birthday bash two Saturdays ago. He had stopped off, solo, to grab a gyro at Youseff’s. In that moment, in a brief encounter, he told EBUZZTT, “everything about life is nice.”
