Nadia Batson and Farmer Nappy are definitely gonna be in every big fete in carnival 2019. If they’re not, well, something would be wrong. Beyond that, these two, with two of the most played, and certainly most requested soca tracks heading into Carnival 2019, will be on tour throughout the year. Don’t say we didn’t predict it!

Both Soca artistes penetrated a feting crowd on the weekend at SOS in Tobago, proving that their singles are carnival ready. Farmer’s “Hookin’ Meh’ and Batson’s, “So Long”, were immediate hits upon release prior to the Christmas holiday and since the music releases, both artistes have been warmly embraced by soca lovers, the world over.

Last season, Nadia held her own, powerfully. She’s been a strong female voice for many years but this year, she’s cleared the way for herself, advancing ahead of the pack, something that will undoubtedly seal the deal for her financially, for the entire year ahead. Shal Marshall was that artiste who led the way in 2018. He was everywhere and no matter where it was, his hit single, “Splinters” made crowds go wild. He capitalized on the appreciation for the tune, taking to social media with powerful presence and even marketing the name by branding t- shirts, caps and other paraphernalia. Shal had taken over.

Soca music’s been infiltrating the global music arena, though at a lesser pace than other genres, for a few years well. It’s likely that the pace will continue and what we will eventually see, is a whirlwind of international exposure for a genre that is authentically Caribbean. We can’t wait!

Selena Gomez has 150 million Instagram followers. 57.6 million people follow her on Twitter. Last week, the actress and singer broke her silence on the effects of social media on today’s generation, saying it is dangerous. Gomez had been speaking during a press conference at the Cannes Film Festival. She lamented that at this point, it’s quite impossible to even make social media safe again.

For people like Caribbean native, Majah Hype, social media can be credited for their careers.

The internet has sure taken over our lives, hasn’t it? Truth is, it’s a pretty good tool if used for what’s right. But then again, what is right?… and what’s wrong? That’s pretty subjective, some would argue.

The irony. In a world where a man can be entrapped miles away from his home country, detained for near 10 years, released, and return to being an even bigger symbol of power and positivity than he ever was, proves there are no limits. Buju Banton’s fire blazes on.

Internationally acclaimed multi millionaire music mogul, DJ Khaled’s been a close friend and ally of Mark Myrie, the artiste we all fondly refer to as Buju Banton, for some 19 years. Khaled, a US national born to Palestinian parents, has been grounded enough to know the sweet beauty that can often be found in the harsh rubble of ghetto cultured living. It’s no surprise that his latest album release, an honorary tribute to his young son, Asahd, features a few of Jamaica’s best, among them Buju Banton, Sizzla Kalonji and Mavado.
