Hearing enough of former International Soca Monarch Champ, Kerwin Du Bois this season, or not? Would you believe he’s contributed just about half a dozen songs for the Carnival 2017 season? 

Last week, Du Bois told hosts of RED 96.7FM’s Red Hot Morning Show that he recently had a pretty eye opening experience. He said he’d been at the supermarket when someone walked up to him and asked whether he’d be releasing anything for the season. Pretty aweful, wouldn’t you say? Thing is, Kerwin has songs like ‘New Day’ with St. Lucia’s Teddyson John, ‘We Doh Play’ with reigning Soca Monarch Champ, Voice, ‘Misfits’ and ‘Dis Is De Band’.

Former Groovy King, Kerwin Du Bois feting in Jamaica.

On Wednesday, Kerwin made it clear that he had never been about the spotlight and celebrity life, explaining that he feels the Soca Monarch competition fuels negative energy among artistes and disunity. He touched on the fact that he’s really not a fan of social media either, but strangely, since that interview, we’ve certainly been seeing a lot more posts from the ‘Bacchanalist’ singer, of late. 

Du Bois has been consistent as a creator and a true contributor to the music of the Caribbean. He has written and produced music for countless artists but on Wednesday, his hurt could not be hidden. He spoke of the need for Caribbean people to purchase the music that is created and sold online by the soca stars that they love, making it clear that until this is practiced, soca will never earn its rightful place as a genre of its own, internationally. “Soca Is Life,” he said at one point, almost shouting so that listeners could understand his passion. He relayed an experience where at an international event, dancehall music had been playing and from the moment Soca began blaring through the speakers, the entire vibe and energy of the people, changed and the fun could not be denied.

Undeniably a fetter, the entertainer last week made it clear that he’s not one to remain backstage after any performance. “I like to go in the crowd and I don’t want no security,” he said. That was certainly a shocker but truth be told, Du Bois has been spotted feting and having a great time to Soca music, around the world. That is certainly a trademark of a true soca music lover, whether artiste or otherwise. If you LOVE soca music, feting comes naturally.

We anticipate seeing and hearing a lot more from Kerwin Du Bois as the Carnival 2017 season climaxes. Don’t you?

Barbados’ gem, Rihanna will be gracing the 2024 Paris Olympics.

No. She isn’t on the relay team, nor is she participating in the shot put event, but she’s sure about to spice up the faces of the athletes who will.

On Thursday, the ‘Love on the Brain’ singer announced that she’d sealed a deal with the 2024 Paris Olympics. “Tried to tell y’all… we outside all 2024!!!

Both hard copy and digital, IslandLime Magazine’s on a mission. In the ever-expanding world that we now occupy, efforts continue to share the most authentic Caribbean energy, with everyone outside the Diaspora. It’s not a new idea but the man behind it has all the gumption it takes to make it make sense.

Simon Baptiste believes in the Caribbean potential.

Simon Baptiste says his team’s vision is to create a global platform that allows for the stories of Caribbean creators and creatives, to be shared with people around the world – people who are anxious to discover more about the heartbeat of the region. “Although we recognize the importance of what goes on within our region, there are also hundreds of tales – fiction and non fiction, being crafted by islanders in territories that stretch from North America ti Australia,” he said in a recent Ebuzztt chat. “It’s our job to reveal the players and the art.”

The magazine’s official launch took place on July 4th in Port- of- Spain, Trinidad and featured performances by Key DeVere and John G. In the aftermath of the launch, Simon issued a statement, thanking folks who came out in support. He explained that the rationale behind delivering the project now, lies in understanding that we – the Caribbean people, built nations. “A chain of over 700 islands, encompassing 1,063,000 square miles, has produced incomparable talent- people who have left and continue to leave an indelible mark on art, fashion, music, literature, entertainment, sports, science and technology,” he wrote. Baptiste praised his people, adding, “From Capitol Hill, to working spaces in Nairobi, to the offices of an advertising agency, Down Under, you’ll find someone who has island roots, and spreads the philosophy of what makes the Caribbean and its people so unbelievably spectacular.”
