True to his mission, Ziggy Rankin continues to take the road less traveled. Silence, many would say isn’t a trait best suited to someone in the entertainment industry. For quite some time, Ziggy’s been silent, but he’s been making moves many of us may not have known about.

Ziggy Rankin will appear at Redemption 3 on May 28th.

Set to hit the stage at the upcoming Redemption III concert in Trinidad on May 28th, Rankin, in a chat with EBUZZTT.COM said a lot has been happening. He said while he’s been off the radar for a little bit in Trinidad and  Tobago, he’s never stopped making appearances across the Caribbean and internationally. Recently however, the artiste who has, over the years, blessed music fans with anthems like, “Another One Gone Again,” “Miserable life” and his hit single, “Who Do You Want” with the late Blazer Dan, performed for reggae music lovers aboard the Good Reggae Music cruise hosted by radio personality and artiste, Third Bass. He seamlessly delivered and for what it’s worth, his music penetrated the audience effortlessly. Rankin proved, in that short time that he has a voice that cannot and will not die.

Armed with new music and the imminent release of an album, Rankin is promising fans that he’s coming hard in the weeks and months ahead. He’ll likely open for the big name reggae stars at Redemption III – a show that, in the past two years has earned big kudos, pulling massive crowds. His new single, he told us, is called, “Safe Inna Mi Yard”- a track he did with Jamaica’s Duane Stephenson. “Duane and I bounced up in St. Maarten. We were doing a dub plate session and started talking about the crime situation both in Jamaica and Trinidad. We decided to collaborate on a song about this problem that’s spreading across the Caribbean,” explained the entertainer.

Rankin and Stephenson have since released a video for the song. It was done in Antigua where the two again met up to do a show.

Ziggy’s been less silent that we think. He’s simply been allowing himself the chance to work without interruption. Now, he tells us, “I also did a song with V Bozeman from the hit show, EMPIRE.” News of this had made the rounds somewhat, but still, Ziggy hadn’t been shouting loud enough. “I’ve been really trying to master my craft,” he tells us, admitting that his silence has been deafening.

Admitting that he believes in the power of music, Ziggy Rankin told EBUZZTT that he’ll collaborate with any artiste who has messages of positivity to deliver. “Music is very powerful. It affects the mind, body and soul,” he says, trailing off as though he’d been reminding himself of this fact in that very instant. On May 28th, fans and music lovers in general, will likely get a treat from the T&T reggae music crooner. They’ll be once again reminded that music is a universal language that has the power to unite.

Machel Montano’s proving to be a stand up guy. You know how some companies hate giving refunds?…well, seems like the Monk and his cohorts at Tribe Carnival, understanding of the current climate, and the global economic effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, are extending an olive branch to fetters.

In a YouTube message posted last week, Machel is heard explaining why the inaugural Melee cruise, which was originally carded to sail in May 2021, has been pushed back.

He said plans are still ongoing, but explained that for those who have been strongly impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, forcing them to reconsider sailing with the Melee family, refunds would be afforded.
