Swappi Gets ‘Litty’ At Soka In Moka.

It was the week starter we needed. Above all else Soka In Moka brought out the Soca stars. Swappi was extraordinary at the Trinity College all inclusive fete and he even managed to get the respect of All Starz front line man, Blaxx. Check out what you may have missed:

Fay Ann Tells Media Houses, Get It Right Or Shut Up.

Fay Ann Lyons isn’t tolerating inaccurate reporting.

Fay Ann Lyons is the new Chairman of the International Soca Monarch competition. On the heels of her appointment has come much scrutiny and even talk of nepotism regarding how she was afforded the position. She clearly isn’t bothered however, and is making it clear to all and sundry that she isn’t about to take any BS. Check out what she pointed out in a social media post this week:

For years power soca has always taken the bigger purse in the monarch, last year the competition saw the first prize for the entire event hosting 12 entrants on final night according to records to be TT$300,000. I have requested that the Power soca go back to its original standing of 1 million and Groovy normally in the low hundred thousands (do your research) to TTD$500,000. The brief that we had with the Artiste on Monday where discussions with Farmer Nappy and others who actually attended the meeting saw us working out the details of the groovy to be a monarch title as well. (Headline on pic clearly not from meeting with Artiste) in addition we discussed ways to get our monarch to be included in other countries monarch and acknowledged as monarchs as well (not mentioned in article) and further to that there was an exchange of ideas from the attending Artiste on past monarch happenings (one of which was band inclusion as D All stars band normally backed the Artiste for many monarch) and the ability for me to schedule rehearsals using my band was not just sensible but manageable. This post is to simply advise that we understand the power of print and for us to put the information in the public domain correctly. Misleading headlines will lead to negative comments and will have no positive impact on the competition that helped many of our biggest names carve the careers they enjoy today. Thank you all and God bless you all. Have a safe carnival. #FayAnnLyons

Patrice Roberts Has Even the Men of T&T Groovin’…

Well, as if her banging body wasn’t enough to send the men wild, Patrice Roberts’ music seems to be having quite the effect on the opposite sex. A video posted to the artiste’s social media on Friday showed a group of men getting quite excited about her single, “Touch Me”. The artiste simply said, “I love my Trini people…”

Check out the video:

Wow Jadel! Didn’t You Just have a Baby?!

Seems like there’s nothing like a little post partum heat to get you ready for Carnival! Soca artiste, Jadel who delivered her first child in December 2018, seems set to create a major stir this carnival. She’s setting her own pace and surprisingly, it’s pretty damn racy if you ask us! The artiste posted a hot pic on her IG this week, and all we’ll say is WOWZA!!! By the way, her 2019 Carnival track is called, “Push It Back.”

The rush by media outlets to be “first” is proving to be a problem. Even as investigators scrambled to the scene of the helicopter crash that claimed the lives of nine persons in Los Angeles on Sunday, US media outlet, TMZ had been informing the world that basketball star, and father of four, Kobe Bryant had been killed. The rush to be first is now being criticised, with several people in authority lamenting the fact that family members may not have been given the news just one hour after the incident had taken place. TMZ had however broken the story, sending the world into a state of shock.

TMZ’s Harvey Levin

The media outlet was criticised by Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who told reporters, “It would be extremely disrespectful to understand that your loved one … perished and you learn about it from TMZ.” He said TMZ had posted the story a little more than one hour after police said they received reports of a downed aircraft.

Los Angeles County Undersheriff Tim Murakami also criticised TMZ in a tweet. “I am saddened that I was gathering facts as a media outlet reported … Kobe had passed,” Murakami wrote. “I understand getting the scoop but please allow us time to make personal notifications to their loved ones. It’s very cold to hear of the loss via media. Breaks my heart.”

Kobe Bryant leaves to mourn, his wife Vanessa Bryant and three other daughters.

What are your thoughts? Do you think it was insensitive for TMZ to run with the report before ensuring family members had been notified or do you think it goes with the territory?

Was TMZ Wrong for Running the Story on Kobe's death before confirming the family Had been notified?
