Ladies listen up! The gram’s unforgiving. Here’s a weekend warning that could save you some serious long-term social embarrassment, so for the next 3 minutes, open your mind and put the selfie stick down.

In case you’ve been living beneath a rock and aren’t hip to the trending digital slangs, THOT is an abbreviation for ‘That Hoe over there.” With that said, if someone refers to you as such, don’t smile. It isn’t something to be proud of. Since its advent, Instagram’s seemingly been the spot to throw out all inhibition, but truth be told, it’s also the the spot many go to, to ridicule and throw around uncaring comments (shade), something that’s led a lot of young people to depression and even suicide.

That intentional photo of your ass posted to the ‘gram could brand you an “insta thot”…

‘Insta-Thotting’ has sadly become a trend among the young and care free and while many have assented to the online activity in the name of free expression and pride, truth be told, acting like a thot, especially if you aren’t really one isn’t cool at all. It could cost you big time! In fact, if you’re considering a career in a professional field, we’d suggest you anticipate the likelihood of a prospective employer snooping through your social profiles… and while that could be considered a bit unethical and possibly borderline discriminatory should they refuse to hire you based on your social profile, who’d really know that’s what they did!? Best advice – make your profile private if you’re bent on being an insta-thot!

Nineteen-year-old Jamaican reggae artist, Koffee has been nominated by the Grammy nomination committee for her first Grammy Award in the Best Reggae Album category. It’s the first nomination for the Spanish Town native who is the youngest solo reggae act to have gotten a nomination in the category.

Koffee is going head to head with Julian Marley with “As I Am,” Sly & Robbie & Roots Radics with “The Final Battle” and Third World with “More Work To Be Done” which was produced by Damian Marley.

This is Koffee’s first nomination for a Grammy Award. The EP was also her debut.

The young entertainer released her debut EP, ‘Rapture’ in March this year. She appeared at major concerts which featured Buju Banton and other prominent acts, in the aftermath of the EP’s release, promoting her music and offering fans, especially in the Caribbean, a better opportunity to feel her vibe. In Trinidad in April, when Buju headlined the I Am Legend concert, Koffee was added to the cast much to the anticipation of her younger fan base. Her momentum never slowed and she never disappointed. Fast forward to November and the young, positive influencer is showing signs of musical greatness for many years to come.

Other Jamaican entertainers who have enjoyed Grammy Award success are Buju Banton, Beenie Man, Shaggy, Damian Marley, Jimmy Cliff and Burning Spear, among others.

The 62nd Annual Grammy Awards ceremony is scheduled for January 26, 2020, at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Despite the high lifestyles of entertainers and celebrities, we often forget that they’re people just like the rest of us. On Wednesday in South, Trinidad, soca artiste and Point Fortin native, Fay Ann Lyons, was honored by the borough for her contribution to culture and while the recognition stood tall, the humility of the artiste’s posts to social media, showed a different side to her- a side many would more than likely, bypass.

Alvarez has always stood unique on the soca circuit. Her blatant, fearless speech is sometimes misunderstood for aggression. In the heart of it all, Lyons-Alvarez, by all accounts, is a country girl to her heart. On Tuesday, even as she was being congratulated for being honored with the keys to her borough of Point Fortin, Lyons chose to return to her roots, posting a photo of herself with Secondary school teacher. She said she could not have left the borough without stopping in to say hello. “Could not pass through and not say hi. This wonderful woman taught me in school #MrsBridgemanand I will always remember her poise and strength…. and toughness! That woman was dread, but we all loved her,” she wrote.

Lyons-Alvarez recently returned from the Uber Soca Cruise where she took her vibe, like several other top notch soca artistes, to the people. She has already unleashed a couple tracks heading into Carnival 2020, among them, “One Love” with Jaiga and Grenada’s Lil Natty and Thunda and “Wha Deh Know” on the Nikholai Greene produced Cubano Riddim, which also features Jamaica’s Konshens.
