Despite his efforts to influence the population in Trinidad and Tobago to follow the advice of health professionals and get vaccinated, Soca Parang icon, Kenwrick Jospeh- best known as Kenny J, succumbed to Covid-19 on Sunday.

His daughter confirmed that he had been hospitalized for approximately two weeks at the Augustus Long hospital, despite being fully vaccinated. A campaign, designed by the health ministry to encourage Trinidad and Tobago’s citizens to vaccinate themselves, heard Kenny endorsing the message and speaking of his desire to protect himself.

Upon news of his passing, those against the shot immediately sought to point out the fact that he had been a part of government’s mass media campaign. The 69-year-old, who was a former police officer and a major part of Trinidad and Tobago’s culture, had performed at safe zone events during the Christmas season. Radio personality and entertainer, Jerome ‘Rome’ Priscilla who considered the ‘Alexander’ singer, a mentor, said the fraternity has lost a legend. “I am in tears while I type this. He always had a stale joke to give me , always laughing , always joking around . Grew up listening to his music and admired the skill in his writing . I took a lot of notes from him and he was always there to give me advice,” he wrote on social media.

Fellow calypsonian and Soca parang icon, Edwin ‘Crazy’ Ayoung paid homage to his friend, saying, “Kenny J will live on forever. He was a true friend and I will surely miss him.”

Kenny J’s death came on the heels of the death of veteran calypsonian Bomber, whose real name was Clifton Ryan. He died on New Years Day at the age of 93.

Both hard copy and digital, IslandLime Magazine’s on a mission. In the ever-expanding world that we now occupy, efforts continue to share the most authentic Caribbean energy, with everyone outside the Diaspora. It’s not a new idea but the man behind it has all the gumption it takes to make it make sense.

Simon Baptiste believes in the Caribbean potential.

Simon Baptiste says his team’s vision is to create a global platform that allows for the stories of Caribbean creators and creatives, to be shared with people around the world – people who are anxious to discover more about the heartbeat of the region. “Although we recognize the importance of what goes on within our region, there are also hundreds of tales – fiction and non fiction, being crafted by islanders in territories that stretch from North America ti Australia,” he said in a recent Ebuzztt chat. “It’s our job to reveal the players and the art.”

The magazine’s official launch took place on July 4th in Port- of- Spain, Trinidad and featured performances by Key DeVere and John G. In the aftermath of the launch, Simon issued a statement, thanking folks who came out in support. He explained that the rationale behind delivering the project now, lies in understanding that we – the Caribbean people, built nations. “A chain of over 700 islands, encompassing 1,063,000 square miles, has produced incomparable talent- people who have left and continue to leave an indelible mark on art, fashion, music, literature, entertainment, sports, science and technology,” he wrote. Baptiste praised his people, adding, “From Capitol Hill, to working spaces in Nairobi, to the offices of an advertising agency, Down Under, you’ll find someone who has island roots, and spreads the philosophy of what makes the Caribbean and its people so unbelievably spectacular.”
