Iwer George Saddened By Brutal Murder of Former Employee.



Ricardo Welch was best known for his fiery attacks on politicians.

The death of well known political talk show host, Ricardo Welch, best known as Gladiator, in Trinidad and Tobago, has many now questioning whether the country will see any ease in criminal activity, anytime soon. Welch, was shot in the chest while leaving his home, in his vehicle, this morning. He died on the spot. His former employer, Soca artist, Neil Iwer George, spoke with EBUZZTT in the aftermath of the news, telling us that he is saddened by it all.

Iwer George operates radio station, 91.9FM. The company boasts two locations, in Trinidad and in sister isle, Tobago. Initially, Iwer’s vision for 91.9FM, substantiated his passion to push Soca music to its full potential, having launched what was then, the all soca station, Trinibashment 91.9FM. It was later re-engineered to suit an urban format, rebranded as The Street 91.9FM. Gladiator worked at the frequency, having come on board with Iwer to offer lovers of politics, commentary from his personal perspective, mixed of course, with laughter and ‘piccong.’ The 54-year-old worked there for some time before moving on.

Today, a reflective Iwer George told Ebuzztt:

The Gladiator was a great journalist in his own right. He worked for me for many years at 91.9FM and it is a very sad day to see him go so unexpectedly. He will be missed by many. On behalf of the management and staff of The Street 91.9FM, we send our condolences to the family of the late, great Ricardo Welch.

He’s always referred to himself as a champion. Now, former West Indies cricketer, Dwayne Bravo says he is the champion of the nation. His life story may be quite similar to many of Trinidad and Tobago’s young people, but what makes the cricket star turned artist, a pillar of powerful change is his forward thinking attitude.

Bravo released a new single on Monday. It would prove to be something quite timely, amid a spiralling crime situation in Trinidad and Tobago. The song, “Done De War”, expresses Bravo’s desire to see peace, unity and love in the land of his birth. Speaking on RED96.7FM, the entertainer said, ” This is a new song for me and it’s no secret what’s going on in T&T. This song isn’t only about the violence because there are all kinds of wars happening around us.”

Bravo suggested that there is animosity among DJs, athletes and even religious factions, even suggesting that there is war taking place even on social media.

“I want everybody to unite in Trinidad and Tobago. The time is now. The festive time is now and people are releasing a lot of different types of songs but I’ve chosen to use my platform to encourage positive change.”


On Monday, the superstar cricketer made his rounds to various urban radio stations, preaching this sentiment, urging Trinidad and Tobago’s people to do better for themselves, and for the generations to come.

Bravo visited the youths at Success Laventille Secondary School recently.

Explaining that he had embarked on a school tour recently, the Santa Cruz, Trinidad native said many children look up to him and he realised that with their appreciation of his music. “Most of the children know my songs word for word. This song is really calling on the nation, for everybody to unite as one,” he insisted.

In a social media post on the first day of his school tour, Bravo, having visited the children at the Success Laventille Secondary School said, “It felt so good.” His effort to draw attention to the harsh reality faced by many of these young people who reside in crime hot spots in Trinidad and Tobago, is certainly worthy of commendation.
