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.

Nadia Batson at SOS

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!

The Caribbean community is today in uproar after one of its very comedic influencers became the centre of allegations of physical abuse as detailed by his significant other. The community is adamant that no acts of violence against women or children for that matter, will be condoned, this after the female in question broke her silence via social media, explaining that she has been the victim of traumatic attacks and even alleging that her life could have been snuffed out when her attacker allegedly drew a gun against her.

This feature deals specifically with warning signs for women as it relates to the potential of attack by their significant other. We believe it has become necessary- and it really always has been imperative that information be made available to persons should they become victims of domestic violence or any type of abuse.

Breakingthecycle.org, a website platform that aims to break the cycle of violence in relationships specifically for young people, explains that dating abuse encompasses many types of abuse, including physicalemotional, verbal, digital and sexual.  “It can be hard to tell when a behaviour crosses the line from healthy to unhealthy or abusive,” the site explains, noting that dating violence is a pattern and as such, women are encouraged to be aware of these early warning signs, and what could become a series of abusive behaviors over time.

In recent months efforts by Ebuzztt to get Bunji Garlin’s input on various matters proved futile because, as he told us then, he wished to remain off radar as he had been working on something major that would eventually be revealed.

In the aftermath of his father’s passing, Garlin used social media to express his appreciation for the words of strength offered by his wife, Fay Ann Lyons. Months later, the pair unveiled plans to effectively carry the creatives in Trinidad and Tobago and across the Caribbean, in a trendy, digitised fashion. Earlier today, they introduced something called ‘Chrending’, set to become a dot com… a play on the word Trending, and a word certainly fashioned in the broken English dialect often heard across the West Indies.

At a media launch to unveil their new digital platform, which is aimed at cushioning the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic in such a way that would allow creatives to continue to earn, the Alvarez duo explained that the website, when up and running, would facilitate virtual concerts and other performances to the benefit of every stakeholder in the Caribbean’s entertainment industry. Specific details relative to copyright, according to Lyons-Alvarez, were still being ironed out amid talks with the Copyright Organization of Trinidad and Tobago.

Explaining that often time, artistes who utilise their personal Instagram Live platforms to host virtual events are interrupted for one reason or another, FayAnn said Chrending would eliminate such interruptions. She further explained that the website would allow each individual creative to possibly reach larger audiences than what would normally be their personal platform reach. “The idea is to bring the Caribbean audience together so when one person uses the platform you reach a wider audience and you are not just limited to the followers you have on Instagram,” she said.

The idea comes even as Trinidad and Tobago remains under restriction with entertainment being legally halted by way of the Pubic Health Ordinance, which prohibits gatherings of more than 10 persons in any one space. There will be no carnival in Trinidad and Tobago in 2021.
