A steamy showcase of Soca, reggae, R&B and even calypso music courtesy Kes The Band – led of course by the band’s main man, Kees Dieffenthaller was all that it took to get the crowd at Speyside in the countryside of Tobago, to their feet and moving toward the front of the stage last evening. Taking over the show from performers like the ever enjoyable Fire Empress and her husband, David Reid who together make up Fire Fuzion, Trinidad based jazz band, Hyjnx, Tobagonian vocalist, Kervern Carter and Barbados’ Arturo Tapin, Kees left a lasting impression at the first event on the Tobago Jazz Experience 2013 calendar. He even scored points among the ladies when he went shirtless- strutting his stuff across the stage and teasing with every chord sung.

Kees thrilled the crowd at Speyside last night with his amazing vocals.

His sex appeal wasn’t the main attraction last evening but that certainly didn’t stop the ladies from lusting. His vocals on point as usual, the island pop heartthrob and his musical outfit of well endowed male and female dancers, musicians and technical crew impressed beyond words. Kees’ on stage swag has been a topic of many discussions in the past. On show night in Tobago, the conversations continued as many looked on in awe of his presence and natural knack for stimulating audience members of different ages.

The Speyside event brought out a massive crowd of villagers from the area and certainly as far as the Scarborough area. Many had made the trek to the countryside to take in the experience and with Kes the Band a headline act, it was more a matter of what time to get there, rather than if they should be there. They were all there!

Delivering a slate of hits that ranged from his 2011 Groovy Soca Monarch winner, Wotless to his reggae hit, Tuesday on the Rocks, some of the oldies but goodies in genres familiar to most if not all, and in between flashing smiles of appreciation to the crowd who raised their hands and moved their waists in approval, Kees was a hit. Chatting with ETCETERABUZZ.COM before the show, he said he felt privileged to have been included on the Jazz Experience cast and was happy to have had the opportunity to appear in the rural village of Speyside, noting that such areas are often forgotten.

Fya Empress of Fya Fuzion gave a tremendous performance.

Also appearing and impressing with their powerful renditions were King Super Blue- T&T’s reigning road march and Power Soca Monarch King and his step son, K Rich. Backstage, K Rich told us he was happy to be a part of the show and couldn’t wait to perform for the audience. Also leaving his mark last evening with what could only be described as a powerful reggae set was Guardah Knight. He performed just after Kees and truly thrilled the crowd. SuperBlue donned a dapper looking blue jacket that dazzled in the spotlight and like the showman he is- he infiltrated with poise and fervor.

This evening, the Jazz experience continues. Fans of Positive, Kimba Sorzano, Isaac Blackman and others are in for a treat and ETCETERABUZZ.COM will be live on location to bring you the latest, as it happens. Follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook as we follow the fun and bring it to you.

There’s a 26-year-old female attorney who hails from the fishing village of Charlotteville, Tobago, who, having recently achieved her lifelong goal of becoming an attorney at law, says she wants other young women to aspire for greatness.

Jose-Ann Hackett told EBUZZTT she’s wanted to be an attorney since she was just 5-years-old. Now attached to the law chambers of Ingrid Melville and Company in Tobago, Jose-Ann says it’s her personal desire to lead in the industry with integrity, honesty and wisdom “because while there may be many attorneys in our small society, there is always room for good, upstanding attorneys.”

Hackett along with her friend, Desiree Tommy were called to the BAR in December. Tommy is now an attorney at the firm of Hove and Associates Attorneys in Trinidad. She attended UWI, Mona and graduated with honours with a Bachelor of Law degree. She is the eldest of three while Hackett has one younger sibling.

“Be happy to see others win.” This was the expression of the young Trinidad based attorney as we questioned her on the advice she’d offer to other young females like herself. “Stay focused and consistent in pursuing your own goals and you will achieve your own success in time,” she encouraged. Tobago based Hackett told us she sees the profession as an opportunity to help those who are prejudiced, and bring justice for the voiceless. “I want young women to know that they should never allow stereotypical elements to define them. I am a testimony of persistence, determination and manifestation,” she said.

Desiree, who attended the Hugh Wooding Law School, obtaining a Legal Education Certificate before gaining work experience in Jamaica and St. Lucia, emphasised the need for young people to consistently work hard to achieve their goals, while engaging in activities that facilitate and enhance the learning and understanding of their desired professions. “If you happen to stumble or fall along the way, fix your crown and keep pushing,” she said.

Hopes for 2021

The young female attorneys hope to inspire others to follow their dreams and work hard toward it.

“My hope for 2021 is to be the change the society needs in whatever way I can effect change,” said Hackett. Her ambition is to continue working arduously to bring peace and justice for people who are prejudiced and helpless in their situations, within the confines of the law. “I want to make a mark in Trinidad and Tobago, in my own, unique way.”

Tommy says she strives to become the best version of herself possible. “As I continue to learn and grow in the legal profession, I will forever be humbled by the opportunity to vigorously defend and serve others. My hope is to be a role model to young women and a voice for the defenceless in the continued pursuit of justice.”

Nicki Minaj’s son is now three months old. On Saturday, fans of the entertainer finally got their first look at the baby boy, but still, there remains no confirmation of the child’s legal name, with Minaj simply referring to him as ‘Papa Bear’ in a caption that expressed her thanks to her bundle of joy for choosing her to be his mother.

The Trinidad and Tobago born rapper gave birth to her first baby with husband, Kenneth Petty, in September. Months prior, she had visited Trinidad and Tobago for Carnival 2019, but even while aboard their private flight to the festival, cryptic video posts suggested that Minaj may have already been expecting.

On Thursday, Nicki said becoming a mother to her son was the most fulfilling job she’s ever taken on. She also thanked her fans for their support, writing, “Thank you for your love & support throughout this journey. It’s meant so much to me.”
