Entertainers have taken quite a hit. COVID-19 interrupted artists not only in the Caribbean, but globally. In Trinidad and Tobago, a few artists have opted to diversify their brands. Destra Garcia is one of them.

Overnight, Destra told fans that she would soon premier her very own television show. She said it would be called the Destra Garcia show. The Queen of Bacchannal, as she is fondly known says the show will air on www.wenscc.com and across the cable networks in Trinidad and Tobago.

Destra’s big move comes on the heels of moves by fellow entertainer Nadia Batson who has started projects online inclusive of her YouTube show Yellow Cow TV. Other artists like Voice and Ricardo Drue have used Instagram stories to promote their brands, partnering with corporate sponsors like Martelli, along the way.

In a world that is now virtual, entertainers are capitalising on the ease of access to various online platforms, gradually entering virtual markets that were previously ignored. For Destra this is new territory, however there is no doubt that she will conquer this, after all it’s a stage, isn’t it?

In recent months efforts by Ebuzztt to get Bunji Garlin’s input on various matters proved futile because, as he told us then, he wished to remain off radar as he had been working on something major that would eventually be revealed.

In the aftermath of his father’s passing, Garlin used social media to express his appreciation for the words of strength offered by his wife, Fay Ann Lyons. Months later, the pair unveiled plans to effectively carry the creatives in Trinidad and Tobago and across the Caribbean, in a trendy, digitised fashion. Earlier today, they introduced something called ‘Chrending’, set to become a dot com… a play on the word Trending, and a word certainly fashioned in the broken English dialect often heard across the West Indies.

At a media launch to unveil their new digital platform, which is aimed at cushioning the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic in such a way that would allow creatives to continue to earn, the Alvarez duo explained that the website, when up and running, would facilitate virtual concerts and other performances to the benefit of every stakeholder in the Caribbean’s entertainment industry. Specific details relative to copyright, according to Lyons-Alvarez, were still being ironed out amid talks with the Copyright Organization of Trinidad and Tobago.

Explaining that often time, artistes who utilise their personal Instagram Live platforms to host virtual events are interrupted for one reason or another, FayAnn said Chrending would eliminate such interruptions. She further explained that the website would allow each individual creative to possibly reach larger audiences than what would normally be their personal platform reach. “The idea is to bring the Caribbean audience together so when one person uses the platform you reach a wider audience and you are not just limited to the followers you have on Instagram,” she said.

The idea comes even as Trinidad and Tobago remains under restriction with entertainment being legally halted by way of the Pubic Health Ordinance, which prohibits gatherings of more than 10 persons in any one space. There will be no carnival in Trinidad and Tobago in 2021.

It may be a year of great impediments for many in the entertainment industry, but Terri Lyons continues to win. She’s taken home the credit and accompanying accolade, being awarded with the accolade for Song of the Year by the National Action Cultural Community in Trinidad and Tobago.

On Saturday evening, Lyons – a mother of one, was presented with the award for Best Song of the Year. She impressed Calypso lovers earlier this year and took home the coveted Calypso Monarch title, with the single, “Meghan My Dear.”

The song was written by Maria Bhola. In a social media post on Sunday, Lyons thanked her team of professionals who continue to outfit her. She wrote, “Just Grateful…nothing else but,” in closing.
