Bunji Garlin Makes International Celebs Aware of Flooding in T&T. Nicki Minaj Publicizes.



Trinidad and Tobago born Nicki Minaj is aware of the devastation being experienced following weekend flooding in Trinidad. The “Chun-Li” singer reposted a video initially highlighted by Soca artist, Bunji Garlin on Instagram on Sunday.  It has since amassed over 200,000 views with other international celebrities now paying attention.

Power couple, Bunji Garlin and Fay Ann are drawing attention to Trinidad and Tobago’s plight.




Bunji Garlin and his wife, Fay Ann Lyons have been using their social media platform to highlight some of the havoc caused as a result of the inclement weather. Many people have been displaced. Reggae artist, Isasha, who lost his brother Million Voice to cancer just a couple weeks ago, was faced with further turmoil when his home at Green Vale, La Horquetta was flooded and his vehicle also caught in the chaos.

Nicki signaled her intent to visit Trinidad soon, back in September.

On Instagram, Minaj had told fans back in September that she was planning to visit Trinidad and Tobago soon. Whether she will still be making that trip, is unknown. Meanwhile, other big names like DJ Khaled and Busta Rhymes have acknowledged the situation in T&T, Busta calling on Garlin to contact him. Another Trinidad and Tobago born rapper, Trinidad James also sent words of comfort to his fellow citizens on the weekend.

Rainfall continues in the twin island republic today. A number of people have been lending assistance in the aftermath of the floods but at this time, much is needed to bring the nation back to a sense of normalcy.

Urban radio station is among the entities assisting with relief collection. You may drop off items to render assistance, at their office, which is located at 88-90 Abercromby Street in Port-of-Spain.

The irony. In a world where a man can be entrapped miles away from his home country, detained for near 10 years, released, and return to being an even bigger symbol of power and positivity than he ever was, proves there are no limits. Buju Banton’s fire blazes on.

Internationally acclaimed multi millionaire music mogul, DJ Khaled’s been a close friend and ally of Mark Myrie, the artiste we all fondly refer to as Buju Banton, for some 19 years. Khaled, a US national born to Palestinian parents, has been grounded enough to know the sweet beauty that can often be found in the harsh rubble of ghetto cultured living. It’s no surprise that his latest album release, an honorary tribute to his young son, Asahd, features a few of Jamaica’s best, among them Buju Banton, Sizzla Kalonji and Mavado.
