Reggae sensation Buju Banton’s next stop is Trinidad and Tobago. It will be the Grammy Award winner’s third concert appearance since his freedom came on December 7th, 2018. It’s been exactly 10 years since Buju performed in Trinidad- a place many Jamaican reggae artistes refer to as their second home. Just added to the I Am Legend cast of intriguing reggae crooners, is young sensation, Koffee. Her music has been like a breath of fresh air on the reggae circuit in the past few months, many applauding her positive effect. She was first brought to the stage when acclaimed reggae heavyweight, Cocoa Tea introduced her at Rebel Salute- this after her first single, ‘Legend’ was released in 2017.

She might be small, but the impact that Koffee has made on Jamaica and its reggae scene is mighty.

The news of Grenada’s Mr. Killa’s withdrawal from defending his title in this year’s International Soca Monarch competition has led to some fiery online debate on the matter of Trinidad and Tobago’s support of other Caribbean islands’ involvement in Carnival. Some social media critics and commentators from the Spice Isle have outright stated that there has been no support or promotion of the Grenadian artiste heading into the competition.

This morning, in Grenada, talkshow hosts on Power 95.1FM weighed in on the hot topic, going as far as to include Machel Montano in their banter, arguing that had Montano been the defending champion, complementaries would have been sent to Montano’s team with hopes of his attendance.

Here’s a look at the video clip of the on air discussion. Feel free to chime in on the issue and let us know how you feel about this situation in our comments section below.
