[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”51601″ img_size=”large” alignment=”center” onclick=”link_image”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]Akil Borneo, best known as 5Star Akil has been one of the most consistent newcomers to the Soca fraternity. In the past five years, the young, radio disc jockey who doubles up as an entertainer, has received the embrace of soca music lovers who’ve certainly enjoyed his music and admire his dedication to perfecting the craft.

Akil’s name has been a part of the Caribbean entertainment landscape for many years. His first claim to fame came as a part of the Associate Degree sound system, which saw him at the helm of a well-respected brand and unit. He had been an admired voice on urban radio station, 96.1WEFM for many years, however after being unexpectedly shot and left near dead, the young mic man, changed much of his life, even switching to a new radio station, having found favor with Slam 100.5FM, where he remains today.

Akil’s voice and style of soca continues to be symbolic of his nature, it would seem. His calm, friendly demeanor is outright refreshing and like a light switch, the “Partier” vocalist has a knack for switching his personality between stage shows and real life.

Akil’s hit list includes, “Different Me”, “To Meh Heart”, “Never Done feat. Nadia Batson,” and in 2017, “Hero”.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row bg_type=”bg_color” css=”.vc_custom_1484610929211{margin-top: 20px !important;padding-right: 20px !important;padding-left: 20px !important;background-color: #8224e3 !important;}” bg_color_value=”#624bc7″][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]

    An apt description of the Star himself. We his fans always wait in full anticipation for his annual offerings and we are never disappointed. He has certainly developed over the years in the soca industry and we know for sure that there are a lot more great things to come from him. He is indeed a “Different Me” as he continues to find his way… Big up 5Star Akil…

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]K.I.A major part of Trinidad and Tobago’s carnival landscape, Kris Veeshal Persad, best known as KI, is one of the country’s best Chutney Soca contributors. He has won the Chutney Soca Monarch title three times- the last in 2016.

KI is the son of Trinidad’s established keyboardist, bandleader, & producer Veerendra Persad and KI himself started his career in entertainment as a keyboardist at the age of 7.

He competed and won the very first “Children of Mastana” competition and shortly thereafter migrated to Canada where he spent his formative years concentrating on his Academics and studying music.  KI continued to display his commitment and dedication to the band and was given the opportunity to be lead musician and producer for JMC 3veni. He used this experience to produce the band’s last 5 albums, and collaborated with Madmen Productions in producing the massive hit “In Front Of Meh” by Umi Marcano, formally of Machel Montano’s “HD.”

During his career in the chutney soca music arena, KI has delivered songs like, ‘Catch Meh Lovah’, ‘No More Rum Again’, ‘Same Gyal Twice,’ ‘Runaway’ and ‘Baggage’. He has toured the world and even opened for Soca star Machel Montano in Manhattan, NYC.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row bg_type=”bg_color” css=”.vc_custom_1484610929211{margin-top: 20px !important;padding-right: 20px !important;padding-left: 20px !important;background-color: #8224e3 !important;}” bg_color_value=”#624bc7″][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Angela HunteAll it took was one quick collaboration with the King of Soca, Machel Montano in 2015 for the people of her homeland of Trinidad and Tobago, along with the rest of the Caribbean, to fall in love with US based singer songwriter, Angela Hunte.

The Grammy award winner, who is internationally known for her role as contributing writer on the Alicia Keys, Jay Z single, ‘Empire State of Mind’, has certainly immersed herself in the culture of her homeland, proving that she is a Caribbean woman to the core and fully capable of representing the Diaspora with a tremendous sense of ease.

Angela Hunte’s distinct style of soca is truly enticing. Her first collaboration with Machel Montano, a song called ‘Party Done’, heard the vocal range of the Brooklyn resident in a way that immediately sold her to soca music lovers around the world. Onstage, she was the epitome of exuberance. Angela Hunte had sealed the deal and would become a committed part of the Carnival culture of T&T and those experienced around the world.

In 2016, Hunte followed up her ‘Party Done’ anthem with ‘Mon Bon Ami and ‘Like So’. Her 2017 contributions are ‘Big Drum Beat’ and ‘Make Me Go.’[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row bg_type=”bg_color” css=”.vc_custom_1484610929211{margin-top: 20px !important;padding-right: 20px !important;padding-left: 20px !important;background-color: #8224e3 !important;}” bg_color_value=”#624bc7″][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]
