Charly Black To Spend His Birthday Weekend TURNT UP in Trinidad.

Published

Jamaican dancehall heavyweight Charly Black celebrates his birthday today and he’s promising fans an exciting weekend.  The artiste, in an interview on RED 96.7FM in Trinidad this morning, said he’s chosen Trinidad to celebrate this weekend all because of his fanbase on the island of Soca. Black collaborated with Soca boss, Machel Montano in 2017 on a track that has since remained incredibly loved. That single was called, “VIP Girl.”

Charly Black has amassed global popularity. He is one of dancehall music’s leading artistes at this time.

Even as Jamaica’s carnival is in full swing and several of T&T’s soca stars are on that island, Charly told the public today that his fans in Trinidad have shown him a love that he cannot deny or turn a blind eye to. “Trinidad is my second home so at the end of the day, I always have to make sure I do the right thing. I could never leave out Trinidad.”

Charly hosted pre birthday celebrations in Jamaica last weekend and will be a part of birthday celebrations this weekend in T&T. A boat ride called “Perfect,” which is named after one of his more popular dancehall singles, is set for this Sunday aboard the Harbor Master. “My female fans in Trinidad show me a different vibes from anywhere else. It started when I had my first two songs. My fanbase in Trinidad has been growing,” said the entertainer. He also admitted that in Trinidad he experienced his very first boat ride. “I am having my birthday party tomorrow night at Club Next in San Fernando and then Sunday I have the boat ride and we’ll go to VAS for the after party,” he said, making it clear that the fun will be unparalleled this weekend.

The ‘Hoist and Wine’ singer touches down in Trinidad on Saturday morning ahead of the event at NEXT Nightclub in South, on Saturday night.

Social media was abuzz with photos leading up to the October 20th nuptials of Soca DJ, International DJ Stephen and his wife, Zinaida McNamara. The two were engaged in a pretty public setting aboard the Uber Soca Cruise last year. This past weekend, soca stars from around the Caribbean glammed up and made their grand entries at The Biltmore in Coral Gables, Miami, to celebrate the coming together as one, of a couple who’ve staked their individual claims to the entertainment limelight, and unitedly, have now staked their claim to each other.

The wedding was certainly a beautiful one with planning done by Luxurious destination wedding and event planner, Marylen Exposito. The bride’s Viviane Valerius plunging neckline gown flattered her structure in the most elegant way and when it came to Stephen himself, the fashion boss of his homeland, T&T, was called upon for that professional hook up. Stephen wore a custom tailored, Ecliff Elie suit, a choice that certainly proved the right one when the curtains were drawn.

Ecliff Elie has been the talk of the town on the Caribbean’s menswear fashion circuit for some time. Most recently, he dressed Jamaican reggae chart topper, Jah Cure for a concert appearance in Trinidad and Tobago. Beside the bride and groom, a number of Soca stars proved to be show stoppers on the wedding red carpet. Nadia Batson looked radiant in a near gold colored, lace embellished, floor length dress, while reigning Soca monarch King of Trinidad and Tobago, Aaron ‘Voice’ St. Louie, sported a suit that he hash-tagged, “Shakespeare” on social media. Like St. Vincent’s Skinny Fabulous, St. Lucia’s Teddyson John, T&T’s Lyrikal, Mr. Killa of Grenada and Antigua’s Ricardo Drue, the men of Soca rocked out hard and charming in black and white, taking their place in a wedding that has since been referred to as The Soca Met Gala.

Now, check out some of the hot looks by our Caribbean celebs and of course, you’ve gotta see what those said artistes caused when it came to rocking out on the dance floor…

Soca Artiste/ Radio Personality Hits Harder. Tips His Hat to Ground DJs. Argues, Radio DJs Are Followers.

Now this could be controversial but, it’d be worth it.

It’s very rare that a man with much to lose would open his mouth and subject himself to possible victimization by the said people he needs in his corner, but sometimes enough is just enough.

It’s not the first time that fingers are being pointed at the Radio men and women whose larger than life personas, big mouths and “eager to press play for the artistes they like or have vested interest in,” fingertips, are being criticized for their actions. While many would say there’s often a bigger machine in motion behind the music that’s blared across the airwaves, particularly at Carnival time, Bass and many others on the social media circuit have, in recent time, been opining on the matter of Radio DJs and their seemingly unethical method of music delivery to the masses- well unethical… or should we say, biased?

We spoke with Bass- the artist also known at Trilogy. He’s been in the game for over a decade, having collaborated with even Destra Garcia. Bass is also a songwriter and former DJ at New York’s Hot 97FM. He understands the game and understands the music industry, something that not many others can boast of. For years his music, like many other less popular artistes, has stood at the mercy of radio DJs who would faster play the music of 5 artistes repeatedly over a three-hour time span, than they would deliver a new song or two to the people who are so easily influenced by their music choices. Many DJs often say, “we’re playing what the people want to hear,” but is that entirely true? Bass doesn’t think so. He thinks Shurwayne Winchester has been given a raw deal and he also says he’d like to hear more of Snakey’s music played on the airwaves, telling us that Snakey is a tremendous performer who takes command of any audience he’s given the chance to perform for. “The DJs on the streets are a bit more open and respectful to the culture. They are not aligned to any artistes. They are not with any cliques, clans or crews. I have given my music to DJs at parties and they would play the music on the spot with no fear of losing credibility or anything. Radio DJs only follow,” said the artist.
