Barbados seems to be having the BEST MONTH EVER!

Barbados is #1.

Alison Hinds, Peter Ram, Rihanna, Deejay Puffy and all of the other Barbadian superstars now have a lot more to smile about when they rep their Bajan flag, this as the island has topped the Destination Satisfaction Index (DSI) for 2017. Barbados came in #1 out of 144 countries across the world, beating out Seychelles and Bermuda who came in second and third  respectively. The announcement was made and awards presented to a Barbados delegation during a ceremony at ITB Berlin, the world’s leading travel trade show held in Germany this week.

So what’s the DSI? The DSI was developed and executed by two European research companies – Norstat and dp2research, and it’s a metric that measures the overall valuation of a holiday destination based on the factors travelers find most attractive. The survey, which took place last year featured some 70,000 travellers from around the world resulting in 1.4 million responses, covering over 20 categories including Beaches, Accommodation, Airlines, Security, Cuisine and Shopping; person between the ages 15-75 years old travelling for business and leisure. Barbados made an overall world score of 8.8/10 and also ranked highest in the Accommodation category, and highest in the Americas region ahead of Bermuda and the Bahamas.

Mark Myrie, the Jamaican reggae and dancehall giant the world knows best as Buju Banton, has been enjoying his freedom. He was released from US prison, having served a 9-year sentence, in December 2018 and since that time, the artiste’s spirit has been nothing short of triumphant.

On Monday night at the AC Hotel by the Marriott in New Kingston, Jamaica, the artiste celebrated his 45th birthday. He made a grand entry, showing gratitude with hearty smiles at the event which would mark his first official birthday celebration post release. Like fine wine, Buju assented to his 45th birth milestone and even with his simple and humble ways, fans of the artiste could tell that the best was yet to come.

The all white affair saw a number of well known Jamaican friends of the artiste in attendance, among them Sean Paul, Jamaica Deejay and personality Jabba and Romain Virgo. Buju’s Long Walk to Freedom Tour has seen him take stages around the Caribbean including Trinidad and a Tobago and Guyana shows hosted by High a Frequency Entertainment. Most recently, Buju crossed international waters, taking the stage in Amsterdam. His presence on stage, each time, has been nothing short of momentous, and some may say, near spiritual. At his Birthday “get together” on Monday, prior to engaging in chit chat with his friends and family, Buju prayed. It would be a symbol of his gratitude and love to the Most high God for all that he has gotten him through.
