Kirk Brown has two 2020 singles bubbling in Barbados and across the region currently. “BamBam” was produced by top notch producers, De Red Boys out of Barbados. They’re responsible for many of Farmer Nappy’s hits and even worked with Bass on the popular, “Stush.” Brown is hoping the tune, along with his second track, “De Formula,” which was recently remixed with Jamaican reggae hit maker, Gyptian, receive the love from the people in Trinidad and Tobago- the Mecca of the Carnival culture. He is a huge fan of the Afro beats vibe, telling us that it’s an undeniable sound right now. “De Formula” is a combination of Afro beats, Soca, a flavor of dancehall with a Latin keyboard rift that can go into any market. It’s got a Barbadian artist, a Jamaican artiste, and it’s being pushed in a Trinidad market and the mainstream global market. That’s the universality of music today,” he highlighted.

Miami Carnival recently concluded, Kirk Brown has his attention in Trinidad and Tobago and hopes he’ll be given the opportunity to be heard. “I’ve had a lot of success in Barbados, recently returned from New York, China and Miami. I’m well travelled but I won’t say I’m a known star. I think until you’re a household name and you’re really making progress and impact, and you’re able to help your friends and family, and give back, that’s when you know success has come,” said Brown.

A huge fan of many of T&T’s big names in Soca, Brown anticipates being a part of the vibrance and energy of T&T’s carnival. . “I’d love to be on Machel Monday and I’d love to have some of my tunes remixed with some of the artistes I enjoy,” he said. It’s not about competing with the artistes but more so, sharing in the season,” said the Barbados born radio personality.

Nadia Batson may seem like a powerhouse soca performer these days, even captivating the business tycoons at telecoms company, Digicel this week, sealing a brand new endorsee deal, but she admits, it wasn’t always as we know it now.

Batson, speaking candidly on the subject of her personality earlier this week, during a chat with Jade Campbell and Akeem 5.0 on Boomchampions 94.1FM in Trinidad, said she was a very shy person when she entered the business, and for many years, could hardly build up the strength to position herself in the forefront of it all.

Nadia has honed her craft. For years, the singer and songwriter, band leader and overall creative, has stood erect for Soca music, delivering countless hits both for herself and others in the business. As a songwriter, she is prolific and when the time came, Batson also proved that she’s no pushover when it comes to entertaining crowds near and far.

Remembering her early years on stage with Kes the Band, Nadia told the radio personalities that she was extremely shy back then. She said having stepped toward the limelight now, to claim her space on the soca stage, she often finds it hard to believe that she has been able to do what she has. “Sometimes I look at how people react when I’m on stage now and I’m in shock,” she said, appearing genuinely grateful for what she’s come in to.

Batson is having a bumper carnival 2020 season in T&T already. She’s booked for all the major carnival fetes, including the upcoming Army Fete on Valentine’s night. Several incredible contributions to her credit this season, including, “Swing Fuh Me” “Kiss” “Fatt” and “Skinner Park”, she continues to show her power as one of Soca music’s top billing artistes of this era.

In case you missed it, soca star, Patrice Roberts was a guest this afternoon on urban radio station, Boomchampions 94.1FM. She had a nice one on one interview and vibes session with hosts, Kevin Baker, SupaHype, Showtime Selvon and DJ Keron who doubles up as Patrice’s official touring DJ. Thing is, the Patrice we heard this afternoon was so in charge of her interview that not even the tricky questions could scare her.

The soca hottie who’s been maturing into her own in the past couple years, has delivered a number of big soca anthems this season. Songs like ‘Real Woman’, ‘Carry On’, ‘Happy Carnival’, ‘ Is We’, ‘Wha Yuh Know’ with Calypso royalty, Lord Nelson and others, have given the mother of one a beautiful catalogue to entertain fans with this carnival. Roberts’ personal life however, has been a matter of much public inquisition. On air, as she comfortably interacted with the guys, the singer fired back pretty matter-of-factly when asked whether she is single. “Not really,” she remarked coyly. Pressed to comment, she deflected like a boss as her daughter’s father, Ricardo Drue’s name came up. She would only say “a family that prays together stays together.”

Roberts and Drue were photographed together with Nailah Blackman aboard the Uber Soca Cruise in 2019.

Patrice and Ricardo have been spotted at a number of carnival events together. The status of their relationship however remains a matter of public speculation as neither of them have said they’re officially in a relationship. The duo have however proven to be very present, as a pair, in the life of their blossoming beauty, Lily.

Patsy certainly has grown into a powerhouse artist and we anticipate that her season will be as exciting of a public display as the speculation over her romantic life has proven to be. The soca star hosts her second Carnival concert, ‘ Strength of A Woman’ at the Normandie hotel on
