His larger than life personality may be solely responsible for the unexplainable sorrow that remains for many around the world, when thoughts of Devon Matthews float around. In that moment of sorrow though, those who truly know him, would know he wouldn’t have had it. His slogan, ‘No Kill Joy’ remains an ever-constant reminder that he was vibes personified and there was no room for sadness or negativity around him. Today, Trinidad and Tobago and those who knew Devon around the world, celebrated his birthday. He would have been 37- years-old.

On the radio station he’d called home for many years, RED 96.7FM, his voice was heard, introducing a segment from 12 noon, that marked the start of a tribute in his honor. The radio hosts at the frequency had given the public notice that all attention and respect would be paid to the young man who had brought so many people, so much hope, upliftment and joy. Personality, JJ, a close friend of Matthews, delivered Matthews’ popular radio segment, “Classic Gold”- a retro music experience which included music from Lord Nelson, the Black Stalin and of course, the King of Pop, Michael Jackson- Devon’s favourite entertainer of all time. It was during the delivery of that on air program today that Matthews’ mother, fondly referred to as Aunty Gloria, was telephoned. She expressed pride in her child, appreciation to the personalities and management at RED 96.7FM and even admitted that she still struggles with the loss of her only child.

Devon died on Sunday, July 16th at hospital. He had complained of feeling unwell moments prior to mounting the stage at Tribe’s 2018 band launch event. He subsequently slumped to the ground while seated near the DJ, and was rushed to hospital, where he died. He had suffered a heart attack. Devon’s memory lives on. His popular hit, ‘De Journey’ sung with Ella Andell sends ripples when heard and his larger than life personality is often remembered on air. Today, as tribute was paid by many who had the opportunity to be apart of his life, there was no question that Devon Matthews flies high among his friends, family and all of Trinidad and Tobago- a country he loved so much.

Female star power can no longer be categorised as merely sporadic, or dismissed as isolated, as this past year has seen the ladies topping the charts and holding their own alongside their male-counterparts. Among those who trod on fiercely, carrying the flag of female empowerment are Jamaican-born dancehall singer-songwriter Hoodcelebrityy and rapper Kash Doll. 

KashDoll

On a mission to unite and entertain the world through music, the multi-talented pair have released “SO PRETTY”, a hit-bound track celebrating women’s beauty and independence worldwide. According to a media statement issued by Destine Media, the song is an anthem for women everywhere to unite with each other and embrace their differences. It is the call for women to use their power, unite with who they truly are, and liberate themselves from patriarchal standards. 

Hood Celebrity

Known for her self-esteem boosting international chart topping singe, “Walking Trophy”, Hoodcelebrityy spoke on the song’s inspiration, and her collaboration with BET Award nominee for Best Female Hip Hop Artist Kash Doll, saying, “I wrote the song “So Pretty” to let women of all nationalities know that they are all beautiful. I wanted to show my appreciation for diversity and that beauty comes in all shades. I also wanted to let girls know that beauty can stem from confidence in oneself . That’s why I had to get Kash Doll on this. She exudes confidence and has such a boss mentality. Her independent mindset is inspiring,” she said. 

As this tumultuous year comes to a close, let us not forget that 2020 marks the year of the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment, guaranteeing and protecting the woman’s constitutional right to vote. It is therefore only right to celebrate women’s independence and “SO PRETTY” does just that. 

Paired with a provocative, sexy video, which premiered on Complex, “SO PRETTY” is available worldwide beginning today, on all major streaming platforms and digital outlets, and even on Hoodcelebrityy’s  official YouTube channel.

In a YouTube message posted last week, Machel is heard explaining why the inaugural Melee cruise, which was originally carded to sail in May 2021, has been pushed back.

He said plans are still ongoing, but explained that for those who have been strongly impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, forcing them to reconsider sailing with the Melee family, refunds would be afforded.
