Could _____________ Take The Road March!? Saw It Coming?

Patrice Roberts looked incredible at Army Fete 2018.

The weekend’s now winding down and two fetes between Friday night and Sunday morning may have very well proven just how much support the ground in particular, is giving to a man the world has come to know as THE BOSS. Iwer George may very well be the man to take the Road March title in 2018. His words, spoken at the very beginning of the carnival season, just prior to him unleashing ‘Savannah’, have easily cemented his ambitions in a way that no other artiste’s music has, thus far. They really say, there’s power in the spoken word.

On Friday night, while cheerful fetters enjoyed the vibe at Army Fete- certainly still the biggest and most enjoyable carnival fete, bar none, in Trinidad and Tobago’s carnival, the Boss, Neil Iwer George, was backstage, preparing to unleash his venom. And that he did. Performances by a cast that included the likes of Shal Marshall, Blaxx, Ricardo Drue and the All Stars, The Ultimate Rejects, Bunji and Fay Ann and even Machel Montano, would do nothing to shake the crowd like Iwer George did at Army Fete. While Road March contender, Patrice Roberts’ effort to do damage to the savannah with her melodious, ‘Sweet For Days’ was heartfelt and ambitious, climbing atop Kevin Da Costa’s (Johnny Bravo’s) back and making her way to the front of the massive crowd, was simply not enough. Her effort was simply that- an effort, as while many looked on from the displays that showed her performance, not many had gotten enough of a vibe and energy to propel them to the front where her antics unfolded. Later, Iwer would show Roberts and every other artist at the venue, just how it’s done.

The Army Fete experience remains powerful. The vibe is electric and with a sense of gritty familiarity, this fete, deemed the last of the hardcore carnival fetes, is and will hopefully be, a staple for many years to come. Iwer George’s name will certainly be among the greats to have shattered the silence at Army. In 2018, George certainly brought everyone to their feet. From front to back, flags waved and the people powerfully proclaimed their 2018 king. “George Fuh de road,” they chanted and with the big flag crews- Two Face, Powder Posse, G6 Empire and all the others, waving vibrantly, there was no denying that Iwer was their choice for the road.

It didn’t stop at Army Fete though.

Ricardo Drue Makes Statement at Soka In Moka

Published

No, this has nothing to do with the fact that he and his daughter’s mother were seemingly coupled up backstage at Soka In Moka…. (wink,wink), but it does however have a lot to do with the fact that Drue maintains a high standard of performance delivery on stage in Carnival 2019! The “I Got You” singer, delivered seamlessly at the carnival staple event on Sunday night, proving he’s certainly got what it takes.

Ricardo’s been a part of the All Starz frontline lineup for quite some time. He’s definitely earned his place in the game. On stage at Soka in Moka, the young artiste presented a refreshing and exhilarating set that included his hit singles, “Professional” “Bet” and “Vagabond.” He was well received by the crowd of primarily mature fete lovers who couldn’t help themselves when the young charmer pulled out the stops and delved into some old school refrains.

Ricardo Drue

Drue’s physical presence on stage is always one to admire as well. Perfectly suited in a khaki coloured suit on Sunday night, he worked the stage, and with little to no talk in between songs, Ricardo simple ACED it!

Take a look at what we managed to capture of the young performer at Soka in Moka 2019.

Machel, Ashanti Team Up on New Soca Track.

Published

Team work makes the dream work. Nobody in the Soca industry has had more collaborations with other artistes, like Machel Montano has. From Walker Hornung to Wyclef Jean, Shaggy, Charly Black, Buju Banton, Beenie Man, French Montana and now RnB songbird, Ashanti, Machel knows the worth of team work.

Ashanti has teamed up with Machel Montano

The Monk’s in full carnival mode these days and he’s got the music to prove it. A recent count on the number of releases he’s managed thus far, exeeeded 10! Makes us all wonder where other artistes would fit in really, but this certainly isn’t unusual. Machel Montano has always worked hard to prove his worth as an industry leader. Behind the scenes, business moves such as this one with Ashanti, certainly prove his strategy-making prowess. He should never be discounted when it comes to that! With another Machel Monday around the corner, collaborations like this one with the “Rain On Me” singer, prove effective in marketing his event. Now, there’s hardly a doubt that Ashanti’ll be on stage with Machel at the highly anticipated carnival concert event.

Last year, a single track done with French Montana essentially sealed the inclusion of the HipHop act on the MM cast. So far, Machel’s other major collaboration this season has been done with fellow soca heavyweights, Bunji Garlin and Skinny Fabulous. That track, “Famalay” is quickly become the Road March anthem of choice by fetters.

The new single done with Ashanti is called “De Road” and was produced by Precision Productions.
