Gratitude is a must. Nineteen year old Mikayla Simpson, the artist many know simply as Koffee, has made history, having won her first Grammy Award at the age of 19. She is the youngest Caribbean entertainer in history, to do so.

The 62nd Annual Grammy Awards ceremony took place on Sunday night at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles. Koffee, the Jamaican reggae artist behind a number of positive hit singles, such as ‘Rapture’, ‘Toast’, ‘ Legend’ and ‘Raggamuffin’, was awarded the Grammy in the Best Reggae Album category.

The category included the following nominees:

  • Julian Marley – As I Am
  • Sly & Robbie- The Final Battle: Sly & Robbie vs Roots Radics 
  • Steel Pulse- Mass Manipulation
  • Third World -More Work to be Done.

In a social media post following the win, Koffee wrote: “Congratulations to my fellow nominees and to everyone who contributed to this, my first [Grammy Award] for my EP, Rapture!!! Thank You!!!!”

Caribbean entertainers and supporters of Caribbean culture from around the world have congratulated the young entertainer, many saying that the artist has made the Caribbean proud.

What started off as a concert ended as a FETE! Ebuzztt was most present at Tuesday on the Rocks’ debut on the Savannah grass on Tuesday night. The event, which has grown significantly over the years, drew a massive crowd ranging from the young to the young at heart, all there to celebrate the musical catalog of Kes the Band.

As we begin our review, we note that entering the venue seemed less strenuous than previous years as the design was more accommodating – specifically to parking and layout of food and bar. Before the event officially kicked off, patrons were entertained by the likes of Sheldon Blackman and others on a mini stage while patrons enjoyed their favourite oriental, arabian or creole finger food located near a designated eating area.

Vale Vibe Cooler Dishes Out A Fete, Not A Concert.

For yet another spectacular year, well known DJ, Alicia D Duchess and her team of event coordinators provided patrons with nothing short of a true Carnival fete experience. EBUZZTT was on hand this past Tuesday night to enjoy the epic vibes, as we did last year and even the year before that. In fact, this is one cooler experience we try not to miss because it’s one of the very few authentic carnival treats!

The thing about Vale Vibe Cooler that makes it truly pop out for us is its simple, yet effective feting dynamic. This is an event that makes the most of a venue that’s not the biggest. The event takes place annually at Bayview in Maracas, along the North Coast road. Parking for patrons is roadside and security by police officers along the roadway, is never to be questioned.

Flag wavers, shorts and t shirts and great music makes Vale Vibe Cooler a necessary fete for Ebuzztt.

On the inside, the ambience is beautifully, natural- no unnecessary ad ons- just effective, efficient infrastructure and non stop feting. Patrons attending Vale Vibe Cooler are mostly foreigners who come in for the carnival experience, many of them amped to maximise on their few days in T&T. A nice mixture of mature and young fetters delivers to this fete, a keen, much needed freedom that’s expressed in smiles, airborne hands, voracious singing to every soca track played and not to mention the oldies that are goodies that every international carnival lover basks in. This is never an ordinary fete- this is a fete for true carnival revellers, the ones that are sometimes forgotten.

On Tuesday night, Voice, the prolific three time Soca monarch Champ came through with the music. He impressed thoroughly, even engaging a young patron who’d flown in from Boston. She mounted the stage as the entertainer came on, ready to back back her derriere on him, and that she did.
