He’s always referred to himself as a champion. Now, former West Indies cricketer, Dwayne Bravo says he is the champion of the nation. His life story may be quite similar to many of Trinidad and Tobago’s young people, but what makes the cricket star turned artist, a pillar of powerful change is his forward thinking attitude.

Bravo released a new single on Monday. It would prove to be something quite timely, amid a spiralling crime situation in Trinidad and Tobago. The song, “Done De War”, expresses Bravo’s desire to see peace, unity and love in the land of his birth. Speaking on RED96.7FM, the entertainer said, ” This is a new song for me and it’s no secret what’s going on in T&T. This song isn’t only about the violence because there are all kinds of wars happening around us.”

Bravo suggested that there is animosity among DJs, athletes and even religious factions, even suggesting that there is war taking place even on social media.

“I want everybody to unite in Trinidad and Tobago. The time is now. The festive time is now and people are releasing a lot of different types of songs but I’ve chosen to use my platform to encourage positive change.”

 

On Monday, the superstar cricketer made his rounds to various urban radio stations, preaching this sentiment, urging Trinidad and Tobago’s people to do better for themselves, and for the generations to come.

Bravo visited the youths at Success Laventille Secondary School recently.

Explaining that he had embarked on a school tour recently, the Santa Cruz, Trinidad native said many children look up to him and he realised that with their appreciation of his music. “Most of the children know my songs word for word. This song is really calling on the nation, for everybody to unite as one,” he insisted.

In a social media post on the first day of his school tour, Bravo, having visited the children at the Success Laventille Secondary School said, “It felt so good.” His effort to draw attention to the harsh reality faced by many of these young people who reside in crime hot spots in Trinidad and Tobago, is certainly worthy of commendation.

Nineteen-year-old Jamaican reggae artist, Koffee has been nominated by the Grammy nomination committee for her first Grammy Award in the Best Reggae Album category. It’s the first nomination for the Spanish Town native who is the youngest solo reggae act to have gotten a nomination in the category.

Koffee is going head to head with Julian Marley with “As I Am,” Sly & Robbie & Roots Radics with “The Final Battle” and Third World with “More Work To Be Done” which was produced by Damian Marley.

This is Koffee’s first nomination for a Grammy Award. The EP was also her debut.

The young entertainer released her debut EP, ‘Rapture’ in March this year. She appeared at major concerts which featured Buju Banton and other prominent acts, in the aftermath of the EP’s release, promoting her music and offering fans, especially in the Caribbean, a better opportunity to feel her vibe. In Trinidad in April, when Buju headlined the I Am Legend concert, Koffee was added to the cast much to the anticipation of her younger fan base. Her momentum never slowed and she never disappointed. Fast forward to November and the young, positive influencer is showing signs of musical greatness for many years to come.

Other Jamaican entertainers who have enjoyed Grammy Award success are Buju Banton, Beenie Man, Shaggy, Damian Marley, Jimmy Cliff and Burning Spear, among others.

The 62nd Annual Grammy Awards ceremony is scheduled for January 26, 2020, at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Despite the high lifestyles of entertainers and celebrities, we often forget that they’re people just like the rest of us. On Wednesday in South, Trinidad, soca artiste and Point Fortin native, Fay Ann Lyons, was honored by the borough for her contribution to culture and while the recognition stood tall, the humility of the artiste’s posts to social media, showed a different side to her- a side many would more than likely, bypass.

Alvarez has always stood unique on the soca circuit. Her blatant, fearless speech is sometimes misunderstood for aggression. In the heart of it all, Lyons-Alvarez, by all accounts, is a country girl to her heart. On Tuesday, even as she was being congratulated for being honored with the keys to her borough of Point Fortin, Lyons chose to return to her roots, posting a photo of herself with Secondary school teacher. She said she could not have left the borough without stopping in to say hello. “Could not pass through and not say hi. This wonderful woman taught me in school #MrsBridgemanand I will always remember her poise and strength…. and toughness! That woman was dread, but we all loved her,” she wrote.

Lyons-Alvarez recently returned from the Uber Soca Cruise where she took her vibe, like several other top notch soca artistes, to the people. She has already unleashed a couple tracks heading into Carnival 2020, among them, “One Love” with Jaiga and Grenada’s Lil Natty and Thunda and “Wha Deh Know” on the Nikholai Greene produced Cubano Riddim, which also features Jamaica’s Konshens.
