Jaiga’s The MAN. He Just Might Be What Every Woman Wants!

Published

Few artistes give the world complete insight into their lives. The ones who do, are often the harshest criticized, but as the saying goes, if you ain’t got  no haters, you ain’t poppin’. Jaiga, the artiste formerly known as Super Jigga TC, is probably one of the hardest working entertainers in show biz out of Trinidad and Tobago. Surrounded by a brood of lovely ladies, he’s determined to show them that he’s a man in every way that it counts.

Jaiga with his wife, Samantha.

Terrin Callender is the father of two girls and the husband of a true Trini socialite who makes design industry work look damn easy. Added to that he juggles numerous media projects, including his early morning gig at 96.1WEFM. Jaiga’s a modern day superhero to say the least. Passion propels him though. He’s loved Soca forever. He’s stood firmly for the art form forever, and he won’t cave in under the pressure, he promises. Matter of fact, with his three little ladies looking on and cheering on his efforts every step of the way, how could he?

Earlier this season, he released two soca tracks, ‘Limbo’ and ‘Wining Crook’ – two songs that form part of the Asylum Vikings’ on stage repertoire. Yes, don’t forget that Jaiga, like the late Devon Matthews, is one part of the Asylum Vikings. He certainly enjoys being a part of the unit, which is headed by Bunji Garlin and his wife, Fay Ann Lyons. Their latest project that sees a thorough team spirit employed,  has been Fay Ann’s “AzaFit” PART -EE initiative – a carnival exercise pump that starts at the bottom of the Chancellor Hill in Port-of-Spain and sees scores challenge themselves in an ambitious exercise routine, toward the top. He’s definitely a team player and so too is his wife, Samantha. She’s never too far away when it comes to her husband’s performances or efforts involving the Asylum Vikings.

Jaiga’s at the helm of the Great 8.

Last year, Jaiga launched his very own online portal- something he called, The Bass Now Media. Out of that initiative, stemmed something called, “The Great Eight.” He’s been championing an effort t0 make the region and by extension the world, become a bit more in tuned to the soca tracks that are being released, year round, by artistes from across the Caribbean. He says it’s been successful so far, explaining that he receives new music by the ton loads, daily, from a number of artistes from around the region. Soca undoubtedly the Caribbean’s best kept secret, many are realizing the genre’s worth, daily, so we suspect that Jaiga’s gonna be getting more than he bargained for, as word of this portal reaches far and wide.

Bunji, Fay Ann Stay Winning. Mas Maker, Promo Outfit…Who’s Counting The Coins?

Fay Ann’s business exploits now include mas making. She recently revealed a collaboration with Canadian mas bands SEMBA and Atlantic Mas.

While the rest of us are out here looking for the next party to attend, Fay Ann Lyons and her hubby of 12 years, Bunji Garlin stay winning, raking in the cash and hustling to the bank, no doubt. The duo is set to deliver another epic J’ouvert themed experience on June 3rd in St. Jospeh, Trinidad, and by all accounts relayed to Ebuzztt by Garlin himself, this one’s gonna be off the chain.

In 2017, Bunji and Fay Ann delivered ‘Santimanitay’ for the very first time at Ortinola Estate- a lush, ambient venue, deep in the St. Jospeh valley. It was the perfect venue for a J’ouvert style fete that featured the likes of fire breathing blue devils, painted bodies and not to mention, performances from Slaughter, Blaxx, Fay Ann, Super Blue and of course, Bunji himself. The event was indeed an epic and memorable one, leaving many excited for what was in the pipeline for the year ahead. During carnival 2018, the Alvarez’s once again delivered ‘Santimanitay’ on J’ouvert morning, taking patrons away from the traditional street venues in Port-of-Spain and into the cosy, meadow-like atmosphere they’d introduced us to, a few months prior.

“We’ll have a nice line up of artistes this time again, including myself, Fay Ann, Preedy Ms. Alysha, Revelation and a new artiste called, Jubee, along with a lot of other surprises,” Garlin told EBUZZTT. He said tickets have been going pretty well with just a limited amount still available from committee members. The event starts at 3am on June 3rd and will end at around 9am. “It’s a breakfast inclusive, cooler J’ouvert fete, but we want to let patrons know that coolers must not have any glass bottles inside and they must be in before 5am,” said Garlin.

To purchase tickets, interested patrons can call : 687-6996/ 733-2130/ 719-2284.

We suspect ‘Santimanitay 2018’ will be epically enjoyable. Question is, where will you be?

Soca Producer to Machel, Bunji, Nadia Re-Enters Performance Arena.

Published

There’s nothing in the entertainment rulebook that says a music producer cannot be an artist. You’ve heard the name Juelio Nelson, haven’t you? The young, Moruga Trinidad native is one of Trinidad and Tobago’s fastest rising music producers, having worked with Machel Montano, Bunji Garlin, Superblue for whom he produced the hit single, Fantatsic Friday,’ as well as other top shelf artistes like, Nadia Batson, Blaxx, JW & Blaze, Olatunji and most recently, Buffy. He’s no joke. Juelio is however much more than meets the eye.

Sharp vocal ability to say the least, accompanied by the love and encouragement of many of the artistes that he’s worked with, Juelio is hitting the ground hard, unleashing a new single that sits properly beside that of Buffy on a riddim he created called the Republic Riddim. “Before I got into music production, I was a vocalist,” he explained, noting that as a young man growing up in Trinidad and Tobago’s entertainment arena, he had competed in a number of competitions, among them 12 and Under and even the Junior Soca Monarch. He admits to having been sidetracked a bit when he got into music production though, taking on that career path wholeheartedly. “A lot of artistes kept telling me it was time to get back into singing. Nadia Batson was a huge inspiration for my return,” he said, explaining that Buffy too, pushed him to deliver a track on the new riddim.

The new single is called “Stuck on You” and was written by Juelio, making it clear that he’s pretty much an all rounder in the business of entertainment. “I think it’s really important for me to come out of my comfort zone- get back into the music and deliver music that will speak for itself,” said Juelio. With plans to release another single in the coming weeks, the music producer who is now working arduously on being an
artiste the world will enjoy, is pushing full speed ahead, fearless, optimistic about the future. “ I know I have what it takes. I just need to show the world,” he said.

Supporters of the art form are encouraged to check out the efforts of this amazing Caribbean talent on Instagram @ juelio_artiste_producer.
