She’s the biggest name in global entertainment right  now. She appeared on stage with Bruno Mars at the Grammy Awards last month. Cardi B, the Bronx, New York native who’s got Trini ancestry, touched down in Trinidad earlier today, telling one photographer, “you gotta make sure my nose don’t look too big okkkkk.” He later posted an image of the superstar sans makeup, gesticulating just how you’d imagine the sentiment to be relayed in true Cardi B fashion.

Cardi’s in town for tonight’s Big Bad Soca event. The lineup includes Bunji Garlin, Fay Ann Lyons, Shenseea of Jamaica, Machel Montano, Patrice Roberts, Lyrikal, Voice, Shal Marshall and more. The event is hosted by 66 Entertainment- the promotional outfit that brought Blac Chyna and Amber Rose to T&T for BaeWatch on Ash Wednesday two years ago.

Speculation has been rife that Bunji Garlin and Fay Ann Lyons have been in talks with Cardo B’s team regarding future projects. On Monday, fellow international entertainer, French Montana appeared on stage at Machel Monday. The carnival 2018 excitement is building and as usual, a number of big names in entertainment will likely be spotted in the mix. Already US rapper and reality TV star, Benzino has been spotted in Port-of-Spain.

Buju Banton performs in Trinidad and Tobago on Easter Sunday, April 21st.

Die hard reggae and dancehall lovers, many of them with Jamaican ancestry, had flown in from Miami, New York and Canada, and parts across the Caribbean. The concert was certainly one many felt they couldn’t miss, it being Buju’s first appearance on stage, post release from a US Federal prison in December 2018. He did not disappoint. Just one day prior to the concert, an online firestorm erupted, involving his son Markus. The young music producer had uttered uncanny words, calling on US president, Donald Trump to take his father back to prison, but amid the social media blitz of negative slander, Gargamel stood unfazed and presented himself like the Lion many know he is, on stage at the stadium. Reports surfaced that Buju was in fact questioned by police, just prior to hitting the stage on Saturday night. Ebuzztt could not confirm the report.

The concert brought to the fore, a number of well renowned crowd pleasers, among them, Cocoa Tea, Singing Melody and LUST, Ghost, new reggae sensation, Koffee, Wayne Wonder, Beres Hammond- both of whom performed their hit collaborations with Buju, Romain Virgo, Chronixx, Gramps Morgan and others. The crowd received a show of epic proportions, to say the least, and just when they thought it could get no better, the Lion of Dancehall, roared.
