Soca artist Farmer Nappy is back on local soil after being grounded in Puerto Rico on December 13th, along with other passengers. In a statement, Nappy’s management told EBUZZTT that Farmer got home tired, frustrated but relieved, on Wednesday morning.

The Caribbean Airlines flight BW 483 had diverted to Puerto Rico as a result of a medical emergency on board. The airline said that due to restrictions in that territory and other regulatory issues , a second relief aircraft was sent from Trinidad to Puerto Rico to bring the passengers to Trinidad however due to mitigating circumstances beyond the control of the airline, the relief flight was unable to leave Puerto Rico.

Farmer’s management explained that for the artist, it was understood that situations like this one, while unfortunate, do in fact happen from time to time. “It was a very frustrating and helpless experience made worse by the challenges with the local authorities in Puerto Rico and the lack of proper communication from the airline in the initial stages of the situation,” Farmer’s management explained. “Finally after almost an entire day in Puerto Rico’s Airport, with no place to sleep and no food, passengers were provided hotel accommodations for a few hours while the airline made final arrangements for the flight last night,” they told us.

Caribbean Airlines, in a statement issued this morning, said that Puerto Rico is not a destination on Caribbean Airlines’ regular route network, and while support systems were in place on the island, several factors outside of the airline’s authority made the operation less efficient than planned.

The relief flight landed at the Piarco International Airport in Trinidad at 2:26am today.

Both hard copy and digital, IslandLime Magazine’s on a mission. In the ever-expanding world that we now occupy, efforts continue to share the most authentic Caribbean energy, with everyone outside the Diaspora. It’s not a new idea but the man behind it has all the gumption it takes to make it make sense.

Simon Baptiste believes in the Caribbean potential.

Simon Baptiste says his team’s vision is to create a global platform that allows for the stories of Caribbean creators and creatives, to be shared with people around the world – people who are anxious to discover more about the heartbeat of the region. “Although we recognize the importance of what goes on within our region, there are also hundreds of tales – fiction and non fiction, being crafted by islanders in territories that stretch from North America ti Australia,” he said in a recent Ebuzztt chat. “It’s our job to reveal the players and the art.”

The magazine’s official launch took place on July 4th in Port- of- Spain, Trinidad and featured performances by Key DeVere and John G. In the aftermath of the launch, Simon issued a statement, thanking folks who came out in support. He explained that the rationale behind delivering the project now, lies in understanding that we – the Caribbean people, built nations. “A chain of over 700 islands, encompassing 1,063,000 square miles, has produced incomparable talent- people who have left and continue to leave an indelible mark on art, fashion, music, literature, entertainment, sports, science and technology,” he wrote. Baptiste praised his people, adding, “From Capitol Hill, to working spaces in Nairobi, to the offices of an advertising agency, Down Under, you’ll find someone who has island roots, and spreads the philosophy of what makes the Caribbean and its people so unbelievably spectacular.”
