Even After Death, Devon Matthews’ Memory Lives. Love Flows in Celebration of Fallen Soca Artiste’s Birthday.

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.

Why Marie Collette Has Everyone Saying, “Take Meh Money”.

Published

on

The vibe of carnival lies in the belly of the masquerader.

There are masqueraders who live for the ‘wine’ and then they’re those who are the embodiment of freedom, wild abandon, bliss and happiness. These are the masqueraders who show the world why being a part of Carnival isn’t an option, it is a requirement. Trinidad and Tobago swimwear and costume designer, Marie Collette has done just that.

In what can only be described as her selfless expression of love for the music and mas, Collette, in her fifth presentation of mas design for YUMA, delivered a jaw dropping stage show of her “ULTRA” costume design for YUMA in 2019. She delivered a seamless portrayal of what every masquerader should essentially strive to be on the road come Carnival Monday and Tuesday, edifying through movement, the masses who’d been looking on, on Sunday night. This was no ‘posey posey’ portrayal- this was a glimpse of the future, a glimpse into Carnival 2019.

Collette has been designing swimwear for a bit. Her passion has transcended into costume design.

Collette has been designing and claiming her space in the Caribbean design landscape for some time. Her killer bathing suits which are sold online at www.mariecollette.com have been enhanced, to say the least, transforming her ‘job’ into a passionate alignment with the ‘Monday wear’ trend that effectively catapulted her to where she is at now.

YUMA will deliver ‘Jukebox’ in 2019, a theme that will include sections like Fever, Wild Thoughts, It’s Carnival, Lemonade, Mi Gente and of course, ULTRA by Marie Collette.
