He’s so educated. He’s intelligent beyond his years and when he opens his mouth to answer a question, it’s well expressed. This was no ordinary interview. Erphaan Alves has been a friend of the EBUZZTT family for a while so he embraced the tough questions we threw his way and when he was done answering them all, he said:

 “I like it when people send these kind of things for me to express myself instead of the basic questions.”

Ever wondered what a Millennial like Erphaan Alves seeks in a female partner? We did, and guess what? His response was nowhere near superficial. In fact, he never once mentioned a big butt or long hair. Erphaan instead told EBUZZTT that his ideal mate would be virtuous, respectable, loyal and intelligent. He says he’s seeking someone who’d be supportive, someone whose love would grow to become unconditional with time – a woman who has no problem seeing him at his best and on the flip side, loving and accepting him at his worst. “I need a woman who support me enough to bring me back to my best when I am not at 100%,” he said.

This was only the beginning. We were warming him up. “What’s one thing you hate hearing people say,” we asked next. You’ll never guess what he said.

The Bassman – The Mighty Shadow Passes On.

Another legend has left the earth. The Mighty Shadow, one of Trinidad and Tobago’s most unique calypsonians passed away at hospital this morning. He was 77 years old.

Word of his death has since spread like wildfire on social media as many send their condolences to family, friends and members of the cultural fraternity in Trinidad and Tobago.

Shadow was well admired for his unique style of vocal and stage execution. Always donning black, the veteran artist would wow crowds with simple theatrics and a bounce that many will forever know as “The Shadow”.

A former Road March King of Trinidad and Tobago, Winston Bailey contributed many carnival anthems during his career. In 1974 he had stolen the Road March race with a song called “Bassman” and in 2001 he did it again with “Stranger”. But beyond that, Shadow’s delivery of songs like “Poverty is Hell” spoke to the psyche of the nation’s people. EBUZZTT has learnt that the calypsonian was due to receive an honorary doctorate from the University of the West Indies this week. He is said to have died this morning at the Mt. Hope Hospital after suffering a stroke on Saturday.

One of Trinidad and Tobago’s most idolized soca artistes had been off radar for the past four days. Machel Montano has since re-emerged, having switched on his mobile phone and reconnected with the world. He says he had been on a four day retreat and had no access to his phone or any outside media. What he found upon reconnecting with social media was that his homeland of Trinidad and Tobago had suffered massive flooding and devastation.

Like many other entertainers, the Road March title holder immediately extended a message of hope to those who’ve been affected.

“This morning I was overwhelmed by the amount of messages of concern, prayer and well wishing. I was saddened to learn of the devastating floods that hit home in Trinidad and Tobago and my heart goes out to all those who are affected.”

The Siparia native who now resides in Los Angeles, explained that Trinidad and Tobago is a nation of great resilience and further saluted those who’ve helped during and in the aftermath of of the flooding. “Thank you for all the prayers and to all those who will continue to support the relief efforts,” he said on Instagram.
