Controversial As He Is, The Writer’s Damn Smart. ONE Is Now Out.

Published

on

Controversy seems to be the spice of today’s life, isn’t it? Just ask Trinidad entertainer, The Writer. His album, “ONE” is now available – this of course, in the aftermath of a countrywide debate in T&T a couple weeks ago, on the issue of his use of what appeared to be a Trinidad and Tobago police vehicle, in a video created for his new single, “Bunnin It.” Amid all the chatter, interviews and online banter, the artiste made it abundantly clear that prison would not stop his album release.

The Writer also is quite the entertainer. His music crosses genres and topic.

During the controversial video debate, The Writer told EBUZZTT, pretty much the same thing he’d consistently expressed in interviews with other media houses. “My music is entertainment and therefore it shouldn’t be taken literally. We need to be mindful that there is a difference between art and reality! Additionally, the vehicle isn’t the property of the institution in question and was simply a prop for an entertainmemt video,” he clarified.

The 12 track album “ONE” includes the hit single, “Bunnin It”.

Amid the hype however, The Writer said he really wanted the youths to understand that education is very important and urged them to show respect to the elders in society. Trinidad and Tobago has been battling a crime scourge in recent years that has seen a lot of youth across the nation, killed at the hands of their peers.

One of Trinidad and Tobago’s most idolized soca artistes had been off radar for the past four days. Machel Montano has since re-emerged, having switched on his mobile phone and reconnected with the world. He says he had been on a four day retreat and had no access to his phone or any outside media. What he found upon reconnecting with social media was that his homeland of Trinidad and Tobago had suffered massive flooding and devastation.

Like many other entertainers, the Road March title holder immediately extended a message of hope to those who’ve been affected.

“This morning I was overwhelmed by the amount of messages of concern, prayer and well wishing. I was saddened to learn of the devastating floods that hit home in Trinidad and Tobago and my heart goes out to all those who are affected.”

The Siparia native who now resides in Los Angeles, explained that Trinidad and Tobago is a nation of great resilience and further saluted those who’ve helped during and in the aftermath of of the flooding. “Thank you for all the prayers and to all those who will continue to support the relief efforts,” he said on Instagram.

Olatunji Yearwood’s herculean effort to expose the Soca music genre to the European market and by extension, the world, is being praised by his cohorts in the Caribbean music industry. Shurwayne Winchester, who himself, has worked hard to take the genre to music lovers around the world, on Sunday said he is extremely proud of the former Groovy Soca Monarch champ.

Shurwayne Winchester is proud of Olatunji.

Beneath an EBUZZTT post, Shurwayne said, “I am proud of this man. He won more than he can imagine.” Winchester went on to point out that history will one day show that when Soca is called, it was showcased to the world by this young, impressive artist.

On Saturday night, Ola took the stage on the X Factor UK where he performed a new single written merely a few days before the performance. The single, “Jiggle” was well received by the UK audience, but unfortunately he did not receive enough votes that would secure him a space into the next round of competition.

Destra congratulated the young artiste, saying his parents would be very proud.

Destra Garcia, a phenomenal culture ambassador herself, also took the time on Sunday to give respect to Olatunji for his effort on the television show.

“Proud of you Ola. You flew the flag so high for soca and for your county, Trinidad and Tobago on behalf of all of us.

 

Destra went on to say, “Your parents would have been the proudest. You did well Tunji… you did well. This was just not your time. But now the world knows who Olatunji ‘Tadow’ Yearwood is. Love always my brother and friend.”
