Bunji Garlin Flares Up as Fan Makes ‘Onika’ Reference on Social Media.

Soca’s never without its fair share of excitement and drama. Following a vehicular accident this past week, Soca artist, Bunji Garlin, in a tone of discontent, has made it abundantly clear to all and sundry that he would be protecting his loved ones at any cost, this as talk of an alleged relationship with Onika Bostic, re-emerged.

It’s been more than 10 years since Bostic was killed in a vehicular accident in Trinidad. There have been widespread speculation that she and Garlin were allegedly romantically involved, claims Garlin has vehemently denied. Many social media trolls have committed to making baseless on the matter, repeatedly. In the most recent post however, Bunji irately responded, telling even Bostic’s family members that it was appalling that they would continue to quietly stand by as accusations whirled around publicly, defaming the dead singer’s name. Bunji said Bostic was in a relationship at the time of her death and to say that she was with him at the time also, simply painted her in a bad light.

Meanwhile, Bunji and his wife, together with their team executed their first comedic promotion last week, bringing young Nigerian comedian and actress, Emanuella Samuel to Trinidad and Tobago for her first show. The event was well attended with folks expressing their enjoyment when the curtains came down.

Rude Boy Orlando Takes On The Bad Boys. Attacks Senseless Rivalry.

Published

on

Trinidad and Tobago’s having a hard time arresting an out of control crime situation. Two rival gangs are at the core of many murders on the twin island, a situation that has led to lessened economic investment and consistent travel warnings to international destination seekers. One young, talented artist is speaking up and unlike others, he’s pointing out the perpetrators without fear of persecution.

Orlando Octave hails from Rio Claro, South Trinidad. He’s proven to be a faithful believer in the biblical scripture, having given fans insight into his spiritual journey, over time. The young entertainer has been to Israel, tracing the bible’s teachings and often sharing his experiences with his fans. His latest music release is a far cry from songs like, ‘Single,’ ‘ Berlin’ and ‘ Church Gyal’ – Soca tracks he’s delivered in the past.

Octave’s highlight of the Rasta City and Muslim gangs’ ongoing anarchy and it’s senseless negative effects on Trinidad and Tobago’s population, has placed him in a category that includes celebrated entertainers who’ve used their platform to highlight societal issues- artistes like David Rudder, The Mighty Shadow and Singing Sandra.

Octave started his music career in the Calypso arena. The storytelling genre, for many years proved effective for artistes who mounted stages across Trinidad and Tobago to decry the actions or inaction of empowered governments. Octave’s reggae infused track, ‘UniTTy’ is pretty much aimed at doing the same, delving deep into the core of a societal problem that is quickly destroying a land once prided as paradise on earth.

In recent time Orlando Octave has been a part of a positive clique of artistes, among them Sizzla Kalonji, Marlon Asher and IzaacKing, who’ve been preaching positivity as much as they can, via the music they deliver to the masses.
