Machel Montano responds to Blaxx with love, calling it the Kanye effect.

Like if there isn’t enough drama in the entertainment industry as it is, Soca artiste Blaxx yesterday threw shade at Machel Montano, making it publicly clear that there’s uneasiness between he and Montano that many would not have expected. Blaxx cursed Montano’s name, calling him the devil during a performance at the ‘Morning Neighbour’ fete in Point Fortin.

The incident was recorded and has since been shared around the internet with even Montano sharing it with a viewer discretion warning. In his post however, Montano who appeared in the Bahamas alongside DJ Khaled on the weekend before touching down in Point Fortin yesterday, expressed forgiveness to Blaxx, calling it the Kanye effect.

Well yes ! #thekanyewesteffect“ Good morning neighbor “ “ We did come here 🌍 for love “ ….Blaxx , according to Kanye “ I love u bro “ ♥♥♥♥♥ anybody see Blaxx today tell him he’s loved !!!! ♥🙏♥ and in your own words “ What doh kill you , does make u stronger “💪🏾! #vegan#nobeef#lovealways✊🏾#wakandaforever😊😘♥🙏😊 “ I love u bro “ 😆 – Machel Montano.

Ebuzztt was not at the event to contextualise the entertainer’s expression, however one witness to the event explained that Blaxx was simply expressing himself over the fact that many had opted to attend Montano’s ‘Soca Kingdom’ event over the ‘Morning Neighbour’ event, which was held on the same day, and has been a staple event to the Borough Day celebrations. “In my opinion, he did not come out to bash Machel. It was like friends saying boy ‘eff he we still pumping,” the patron accounted on social media.

Under usual circumstances in Trinidad and Tobago, obscene language used on stage is followed by arrest and subsequent fines being imposed on artistes. Up to the hour of this article’s posting, there was no indication as to whether the ‘Hulk’ singer had been charged by the police for his use of expletives on stage. He has however been criticised by many for what some deem as hateful expression at an event that was meant to celebrate the 28th anniversary of Point Fortin’s Borough status.

Her appointment to the helm of the highly revered and sometimes controversial International Soca Monarch’s Caribbean Prestige Foundation has come with its fair share of criticism and Herculean undertaking but for Fay Ann Lyons- Alvarez, it’s all a part of the journey. A short time ago, the former Soca Monarch champ turned boss of the ISM, was presented with a cheque and commitment by the National Lotteries Control Board for title sponsorship of the event.

The NLCB has dedicatedly assisted the Soca Monarch for some 27 years, forking out $35 million over that period, to fund the competition. Explaining that the company is committed to the culture of Trinidad and Tobago, NLCB representatives earlier expressed satisfaction in the rejuvenation of the competition.

On Fantastic Friday – March 1st, competitors from across the Caribbean will vie for two titles- those being the Power Soca Monarch and the Groovy Soca Monarch titles. Already, many are predicting that Grenada’s Mr. Killa will walk away victorious, however, anyone who knows the dynamic of Soca Monarch will understand that presentation is key on show night.

Take a look at the ceremony that took place earlier, as recorded live by influencer David Wears :

He’s never too far. He’s a part of the carnival tapestry even when you hardly hear of his pursuits in a season. T&T’s carnival 2019 period has seen Jason ‘Shaft’ Bishop penetrate the airwaves with more than six carnival anthems. He’s the man behind Patrice Roberts’ killer tourism-jingle- like hit, ‘This is The Place,’ and Lyrikal’s monster chipper, ‘Passing Through.” Shaft’s always in the shadows, even when his name isn’t calling much.

For years, Jason’s been the songwriter of choice for many. From Destra Garcia who’s hit ‘Lucy’ was written by Bishop, to Machel Montano, Nikki Crosby’s ‘Granny’ persona- who he manages, and certainly Patrice Roberts, with whom he struck gold when they delivered, “Big Girl Now”. His artist repertoire across the islands, includes the likes of Peter Ram, Alison Hinds, King Bubba and Ricardo Drue. Jason ‘Shaft’ Bishop is most certainly the model songwriter in the Caribbean. “I’m an executive songwriter. I’m the only songwriter with such a significant number of songs tabulated since 1999,” he said to us during an exclusive EBUZZTT interview. Jason’s however got his eyes set on international territory these days, telling us that when Carnival is over, he’ll be heading out to Los Angeles where he’ll be treading deep waters outside of his calm Caribbean comfort zone.

Jason writes for each season, one year in advance. Explaining his process to EBUZZTT, he said he offers artistes full concepts based on his vision for the songs he pens. He also personally hand picks who receives which songs, based on character, topic and personality. Ahead of Barbados’ CropOver, he’s already prepared to distribute songs to the artistes who’ll sing them. “I’m heading to Barbados this evening,” he said when we spoke with him on Thursday. Jason’s been hard at work. His team, based in Barbados, has worked arduously behind the scenes, executing his vision of creating a full fledged songwriting business, that also features other elements that would aid all artistes in the execution of their goals. “I’m setting up offices of Shaft Vibes Entertainment in Barbados, Trinidad and New York,” he said, highlighting that artistes will be able to hire professional songwriters for all genres, videographers, marketing specialists and even dancers.
