Why Everyone Loves Bunji Garlin- and Why He Won’t Fail.

Bunji and his wife, Fay Ann at Sunday’s Santimanitay J’ouvert.

As the web remains abuzz with images of Bunji Garlin’s most recent venture, ‘Santimanitay J’ouvert’ proving an awesome first time event on Sunday morning, reviews are also coming in about the artiste’s down to earth demeanor. Together with his wife and team, the Asylum Vikings front man, who’s among those who’re leading the way for soca music’s global recognition, delivered an incredible experience in St. Joseph, Trinidad- making us all feel that he’s got what it takes to sway popular opinion if he so desires.

Bunji Garlin has been working the entertainment circuit in quite a peculiar way. Just a few years ago his name was nowhere among those who were advertised for posh fetes that boasted an experience outside of the traditional and authentic in Trinidad and Tobago, and then with one song, Bunji Garlin became the artiste everyone wanted to get their hands on. On Sunday morning, after weeks of advertising the Santimantitay J’ouvert event on his socials, Garlin made us all remember just who he is, the man he remains to this day.

From as early as 4am, cars could be seen entering the scenic Ortinola Estate. There was easy parking access, and as the crowds came and early signs of sunlight peaked through the clouds, the blare of soca music, a little alcohol, together with a few good friends, were enough to kick things into gear. Artiste and radio personality, Jaiga and a team inclusive of his wife, Sam were in the mix early on, enjoying the vibe and getting in on the mud and paint action. Later, a cool, humble Bunji, made his way through the crowd, greeting his patrons and taking videos of them as they enjoyed themselves. This was all that it took for fans to become even more supportive of the Wallerfield born entertainer. Not a photographer in sight, except for the amateurs with the their smartphones in hand, and with a no holds barred kind of energy in the air, the J’ouvert thrill that real carnival lovers anticipate annually, preceded the 2018 festival in a truly magical way.

Among the entertainers at Santimanitay were the iconic, Austin ‘SuperBlue’ Lyons, Blaxx, Slaughter, Fay Ann Lyons and Bunji himself. One patron told Ebuzztt that he’d been visiting from Barbados and would be really looking forward to the event next year. Vibe 66 Entertainment’s Rondell Roberts- the promoter of Bae Wednesdays, held on  Ash Wednesday annually, was spotted having the time of his life at the J’ouvert party. US based songwriter and artiste, the internationally acclaimed, Angela Hunte was also there, lending her support to her fellow artiste. No division, no trouble, nothing but good vibes and awesome people made up Santimanitay, proving that Bunji Garlin has what it takes to reach the people in a way that only he can. Now… who say Bunji for Prime Minister 😜…

Since that time, it’s amassed close to 200,000 views. But, if you’re like us and totally missed it, we’ve gotta warn you, the Jamaican gyal’s  powerful presence may very well grab you by the nuts.

Shenseea ain’t playin’. This girl’s getting hers! A collaboration of any kind with Bunji Garlin, could only have a positive result for any Caribbean artist and for Bunji- well, truth be told, Shenseea’s what’s hot right now, so his was definitely a good move.

Jah Cure was a part of Trinidad’s recent carnival excitement.

These Jamaican reggae and dancehall artistes never cease to satisfy the yearning of their fans, do they? Their social media pages give the world some amazing insight into their lives, from what they like to eat to who they spend their most intimate moments with and so much more. Jah Cure’s one of those entertainers who’s adored for his voice but he’s so much more than an artiste. He’s a doting dad. His daughter’s got his heart, no doubt and despite the fact that he’s now divorced from her mother, Kamila McDonald, the reggae hit maker’s living up to his daughter’s expectations of him.

Pretty little Lani all masked up.

The Cure brought little Lani to Trinidad and Tobago in the past week. They were in T&T during the carnival festivities in the lead up to the little beauty’s 6th birthday. Social media posts showed the daddy -daughter duo heading back to Jamaica overnight, Jah Cure captioning one of his pics, “ We had a great time.”

The reggae crooner recently tweeted that a new music release is on the way- something called, “Risk it All”, which features Phyllisia Ross. Stay woke!
