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.

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.

The Bassman – The Mighty Shadow Passes On.

Published

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.
