Leonce says she is ready to hit the stage at SocaSoakHer.

One of the biggest events to hit Trinidad and Tobago prior to what is likely to be another epic Carnival season, will be SocaSoakHer. The event goes down at Guaracara Park, in South Trinidad on Saturday night. Promotion leading up to the mammoth outdoor fete, which will see some 1000 women enter the venue FREE, has been powerful and  truly energetic. Leonce – one part of the frontline of New York City’s Request Band has flown in for the weekend and already she’s amped. In a chat with EBUZZTT.COM earlier, the “Touch De Road” singer said she’s beyond excited to perform at SocaSoakHer.

A number of top notch females are billed in the lineup. Destra with her full band, Patrice Roberts, Nadia Batson and SASS and Denise Belfon will form the female powerhouse lineup, however, not to be outdone, the likes of entertainment sensations, Bubbles, Cardi Gray, Sasha Melody, Tobago’s Adana, Jo Jo, Krystal Khayne, Leonce, Nenita, Jadel and Nelly Cottoy, will bring added heat to what the organizer is promising, will be a memorable water event. Ticket prices have been set affordably with women even having the option to couple up and enter on one ticket. Their male counterparts pay just $200 to enter. John Michael Alibocus, the man best known as Makamillion, known for his ability to truly promote massive events in the Southland, told Ebuzztt that this showcase of the best female acts in T&T, will deliver to patrons, a good look at what these women are truly capable of executing. He however assured that the party will not be an exclusive Soca fete. “We have to remember that we’re still in the crossroads between Christmas and Carnival. The aim is to just give patrons a memorable event so we’re not boxing it in. We’re delivering fun, good vibes, a secure environment and non stop entertainment across the board on show night. This is not an event to miss. We’ve also organized shuttle buses from various points so people can come out, flex, enjoy and not have to drive home after drinking. We want everybody to be safe,” said Alibocas.

On Thursday, Destra Garcia was among a promo contingent making the rounds. Earlier in the day, photos emerged of the Soca hit maker stepping confidently on her ankle, giving us some assurance that she would be near perfect for the stage, come Saturday night. The SocaSoakHer event is the first of what is expected to be an annual pre-Carnival showcase of the Carnival hitmakers and the DJs and radio personalities who take the season to its full glory by the month of February. The lineup will also include MX Prime- the reigning Road March King, Kes The Band, Orlando Octave, Kerry John, Swappi, Farmer Nappy, Dev, S Carter, Yankey Boy, Voice, Iwer George, Jahmel and Makamillion himself. The show will be hosted by well known radio personality turned artist, Smooth.

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.”
