Julian’s Promos has hit 1 million subscribers on YouTube. It’s a major accomplishment for the small team of people who started their effort to promote Soca music, from sheer passion. Their business model allows artistes to have their newly released music, uploaded to the Julians Promos Youtube Channel at a cost, and effectively marketed to their now one million subscribers.
The world, now making a major shift to digital living, the popular YouTube service provider for the Soca genre now has even more potential to reap financial rewards. For many soca artistes, alignment with Julians Promos is the first step to potentially getting their music heard by the masses, not only in the Caribbean region but internationally.
Advokit Productions is the latest production house to turn to Julians Promos for their highlight. A new riddim released by Advokit, dubbed the Tender Touch riddim features Patrice Roberts, Nailah Blackman, Olatunji, Hey Choppi and from Nigeria, the artiste, Skales. The alignment with Julians Promos this time around will essentially mean that the riddim could potentially be viewed by 1 million subscribers from over 140 countries around the world.
Bunji Breaks His Silence as He Delivers New Creative Space with Wife, Fay Ann Lyons.
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.
TECH BUZZ : KFC Shanghai Just Dumped The Delivery Guy.
The future of the world lies in technology. In this Buzz bit, we’re focusing on new technology. In Shanghai, China, KFC has deployed autonomous 5G trucks. Yes! 5G food trucks! Can you believe that?
With the COVID19 pandemic still a cause for major global concern, fast food chain KFC has deployed these 5G autonomous vehicles, which allow customers to purchase their food without human interaction. Pretty cool huh? Not only is it cool, it’s pretty forward- thinking.
Now, these 5G autonomous vehicles are unmanned. No one’s there to oversee what’s happening.
One of the vehicles, spotted in front of a Metro station outside the city of Shanghai was met by someone placing an order on the screen, the order being accepted via QR code payment, and after the order is made and the payment received, a door opens and the meal is collected. How crazy is that?
Do you think such a technological move could be the new standard worldwide in a few years?
Are we moving towards autonomous consumerism? Sure looks like it!
