Did Bass Say That? Meanwhile, Leon Coldero’s Delivering. Now DJs BITE!

Published

Here’s one thing radio DJs can never say- “the artistes aren’t giving us the music.”

That’s for sure. In fact, the music’s coming hard and heavy and the money’s being spent to ensure the recordings are on par with international standards. So angered by the desire to hear more of the new music was radio personality and artiste, Bass this morning, that while on his radio show on Boomchampions 94.1FM, he sternly called on DJ’s to play the new music.

Bass subliminally scolded DJs this morning, urging them to play the new music. He too has released a new Soca Parang track. 

Entertainer, Leon Coldero.

T&T artiste, Leon Coldero and others in the entertainment arena may not have that much clout so what they continue to do is spend their hard earned money to deliver the product they feel will add to the overall vibe of the season. Coldero’s a unique entertainer though. He’s dished out both Christmas and carnival music. His two Christmas songs, ‘Soca Parang Nice,’ which was produced by Optimus Productions TT Ltd, and “Parang in the Sun,’ a track produced by Mastamind Productions and written by Ruthven Le Quay, have been receiving the love of Soca parang lovers so far and Coldero admits to being booked up for the season, already.

He’s now focusing his attention on the Carnival 2018 landscape. On Friday, the entertainer who hails from South Trinidad but resides primarily in Florida, unleashed his first contribution for Carnival- a track called, “Turn It Around.” This too was produced by Optimus Productions TT Ltd- a unit Coldero has a lot of confidence in. A second carnival single will be unleashed in the very near future, he told us. Eager to be a part of the Christmas and Carnival excitement in T&T, Coldero, who hasn’t spent a single Christmas at home in T&T, for the past 30 years, says, there’s nothing like the nostalgia he’s experiencing now.

The islands, many have attested, is the ideal place to spend the Christmas. For one, the smell of Caribbean Christmas cuisine is second to none. Coldero recently told the media that while he’s been capably covering those bases in Florida, there’s truly something special about enjoying the Christmas delicacies at home in T&T.

The Bassman – The Mighty Shadow Passes On.

Another legend has left the earth. The Mighty Shadow, one of Trinidad and Tobago’s most unique calypsonians passed away at hospital this morning. He was 77 years old.

Word of his death has since spread like wildfire on social media as many send their condolences to family, friends and members of the cultural fraternity in Trinidad and Tobago.

Shadow was well admired for his unique style of vocal and stage execution. Always donning black, the veteran artist would wow crowds with simple theatrics and a bounce that many will forever know as “The Shadow”.

A former Road March King of Trinidad and Tobago, Winston Bailey contributed many carnival anthems during his career. In 1974 he had stolen the Road March race with a song called “Bassman” and in 2001 he did it again with “Stranger”. But beyond that, Shadow’s delivery of songs like “Poverty is Hell” spoke to the psyche of the nation’s people. EBUZZTT has learnt that the calypsonian was due to receive an honorary doctorate from the University of the West Indies this week. He is said to have died this morning at the Mt. Hope Hospital after suffering a stroke on Saturday.

One of Trinidad and Tobago’s most idolized soca artistes had been off radar for the past four days. Machel Montano has since re-emerged, having switched on his mobile phone and reconnected with the world. He says he had been on a four day retreat and had no access to his phone or any outside media. What he found upon reconnecting with social media was that his homeland of Trinidad and Tobago had suffered massive flooding and devastation.

Like many other entertainers, the Road March title holder immediately extended a message of hope to those who’ve been affected.

“This morning I was overwhelmed by the amount of messages of concern, prayer and well wishing. I was saddened to learn of the devastating floods that hit home in Trinidad and Tobago and my heart goes out to all those who are affected.”

The Siparia native who now resides in Los Angeles, explained that Trinidad and Tobago is a nation of great resilience and further saluted those who’ve helped during and in the aftermath of of the flooding. “Thank you for all the prayers and to all those who will continue to support the relief efforts,” he said on Instagram.
