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.

In recent months efforts by Ebuzztt to get Bunji Garlin’s input on various matters proved futile because, as he told us then, he wished to remain off radar as he had been working on something major that would eventually be revealed.

In the aftermath of his father’s passing, Garlin used social media to express his appreciation for the words of strength offered by his wife, Fay Ann Lyons. Months later, the pair unveiled plans to effectively carry the creatives in Trinidad and Tobago and across the Caribbean, in a trendy, digitised fashion. Earlier today, they introduced something called ‘Chrending’, set to become a dot com… a play on the word Trending, and a word certainly fashioned in the broken English dialect often heard across the West Indies.

At a media launch to unveil their new digital platform, which is aimed at cushioning the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic in such a way that would allow creatives to continue to earn, the Alvarez duo explained that the website, when up and running, would facilitate virtual concerts and other performances to the benefit of every stakeholder in the Caribbean’s entertainment industry. Specific details relative to copyright, according to Lyons-Alvarez, were still being ironed out amid talks with the Copyright Organization of Trinidad and Tobago.

Explaining that often time, artistes who utilise their personal Instagram Live platforms to host virtual events are interrupted for one reason or another, FayAnn said Chrending would eliminate such interruptions. She further explained that the website would allow each individual creative to possibly reach larger audiences than what would normally be their personal platform reach. “The idea is to bring the Caribbean audience together so when one person uses the platform you reach a wider audience and you are not just limited to the followers you have on Instagram,” she said.

The idea comes even as Trinidad and Tobago remains under restriction with entertainment being legally halted by way of the Pubic Health Ordinance, which prohibits gatherings of more than 10 persons in any one space. There will be no carnival in Trinidad and Tobago in 2021.

The song was written by Maria Bhola. In a social media post on Sunday, Lyons thanked her team of professionals who continue to outfit her. She wrote, “Just Grateful…nothing else but,” in closing.
