Archived: LNO Spotlight Stealer? Octave Of Course. Wait. What Did Fay Ann Do?

Ladies Night Out was a great show. It offered the elements of a truly entertaining event and while it cannot be categorized as a fete, the masses had many opportunities to ‘bruk out’.

He looked damn good for one thing but beyond that, when one of the youngest entertainers in the soca game, Orlando Octave, took the stage at Friday night’s Ladies Night Out event in Trinidad, he was armed with a message. They really say, big things come in small packages. Octave has been having a tremendous Carnival 2017 season and with a grand opportunity presented to let his voice be heard, he rose to the challenge.

Orlando Octave used his performance to speak out on the state of affairs in Trinidad and Tobago.

Amid a crime wave in Trinidad and Tobago that has left much to be desired, the young Mayan, as he often coins himself, added a unique verse to his hit soca anthem, “Single”, calling for women to be protected by the men of the country. He highlighted the recent murders, specifically that of women and lifted his voice in condemnation of these senseless acts of violence. Octave joins a chorus of vocal outcries by many T&T entertainers, among them Bunji Garlin, Machel Montano and D Loxx, MX Prime and the Ultimate Rejects and even rising US based female entertainer, Leonce, who’ve been advocating for the violent behavior in Trinidad and Tobago to cease.

Orlando Octave was mesmerizing, to say the least, on Friday night. He’d come to cause a stir and that he did. After exiting the stage once, he was called back for an encore and when he returned, he came armed with more music than most would’ve expected. He showed his vocal range and aptitude to fulfill the musical needs of even the elders in the crowd,  in the end jokingly toying with them with words that insinuated that they didn’t know he had that kind of depth in him.

Fay Ann Lyons showed the essence of being a Trini soca star last night.

Separately on show night at LNO, artistes like Jadel, Tobago’s Adanna, Voice, Shal Marshall and Devon Matthews took the opportunity to show their ability. Jadel, while certainly offering her catchy songs and clear vocals, seemed to have had a hard time connecting with the crowd. Voice was certainly the opposite. His 2017 hit, ‘Far From Finished’ gave the audience much to sing along to, and immediately reminded us at EBUZZTT why he was the victor at the 2016 International Soca Monarch competition. Fay Ann Lyons and her husband, Bunji Garlin were indeed a fun duo on stage, enhancing their act by engaging the crowd by way of common rhetoric and claims that one side of the audience had more vibes, was more beautiful, had more money, than the other. In the end, Lyons-Alvarez would once again prove that she is a lioness when she hits any stage and is capable of tearing down any show, with sheer vibrance and energy. The outsiders were not to be sidelined at LNO. In fact, Marvay proved a truly likable entertainer.  Peter Ram was also in the mix, drawing the audience to him with the infectious, “Good morning” tune that all of the Caribbean continues to enjoy. Skinny Fabulous was also at LNO. He was introduced during Machel Montano’s set and was certainly embraced by the crowd. Rupee definitely shone on stage on Friday night. The ladies have been loving him across the length and breadth of T&T and at Ladies Night Out, the reception was no different.

Patrice Roberts, Nadia Batson and Terri Lyons strike a pose at LNO 2017.

Terri Lyons, Nadia Batson, Patrice Roberts, Ms. Alysha, MX Prime and the Ultimate Rejects, Linky First, Ricardo Drue and of course, Machel Montano all added their unique style to the Ladies affair and by 2:00am, the audience had certainly had their fill. The night could be adjudicated a success by all accounts, most patrons leaving with an appreciation for a show that even saw a female patron walk away $50,000 richer thanks to a best dressed competition. The season is now at it’s peak. What’s next? Well, that’s totally up to you. Tell us, where can we find you this weekend?

Barbados’ Rihanna Does 30 Right! Makes Huge Business Move Like Only She Would!

Published

Rihanna’s 30th birthday celebration included a big business move that could see the Barbados born Beaty rack up that dough, even while partying like the rockstar she is. Yesterday, even while celebrating the commencement of her “dirty thirties”, the Fenty brand creator released a new limited edition Fenty Beauty product- the Trophy Wife Highlighter. The super pigmented, metallic gold cream-to-powder was an instant hit when the brand debuted back in September 2017, according to Elle.com.

Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty Trophy Wife highlighter is available in a limited edition online.

The “Work” singer was certainly celebrated yesterday. A number of top tier celebs offered birthday shouts to Rih, among them ex-boyfriend, Chris Brown and DJ Khaled. Rihanna was pretty modest in her approach to the big 30th celebration however, posting via Instagram, an incredible “thank you” to her mother for her role in her life.

“10958 days ago @monica_fenty became a mother for the first time to her only daughter!” the singer wrote. “Today is just as much your birthday as it is mine! I love you mom!”

She also made sure to show her appreciation for the hard work and sacrifices that go into being a mom, writing, “Thank you for carrying me, birthing me, raising me, supporting me, teaching me, and loving me unconditionally! The woman I am today is because of everything that you are!”

“I thank God for perfectly hand picking you to be my mother when He sent my spirit to you! You are the greatest! Thank you!” 

RIHANNA

The Fenty Beauty Killawatt: Dirty Thirty highlighter ($34) now comes in a gold box that reads “Dirty Thirty” and the product pan is engraved with “XXX.” Currently, it’s only available on Fenty Beauty’s website.
