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.

One of dancehall’s leading contemporary artistes is on his way to Trinidad and Tobago for the highly anticipated and much talked about Inferno concert being held on Saturday at the Jean Pierre Complex. Busy Signal’s been creating major waves in the hemisphere and further afield in the past few weeks, having teamed up with Brazil’s MC KevinHo on a track called ‘Loko’, that’s also shared with Brazil’s Tropikal Bass Killers and the prolific, Major Lazer. The Jamaican Singjay recently represented his homeland in Brazil where Brazil’s MTV Awards took place. On June 9th, Busy will take the stage with some of dancehall’s biggest names at the Inferno concert event- a show that organisers insist starts promptly at 10pm.

It’s not Busy Signal’s first time on T&T’s soil, however, in a concert affair that is being touted as a mammoth rejuvenation of true dancehall and reggae vibes in T&T, the energy surrounding Busy Signal’s inclusion on the Inferno cast, is second to none. “We see this as the perfect blend of dancehall and reggae. On one hand you have Capleton- an artist that’s known to defend it when it comes to that hardcore conscious vibe, and of course Sizzla’s never to be outdone in that arena. Then on the other end of the spectrum we’re giving patrons good vibes, conjuring good feelings and nostalgia of days gone by with Barrington Levy- an essential name when it comes to reggae music. This is a man who ran things in the early 90s and has a catalogue of music that many of the up and coming acts could only hope to achieve. When Busy Signal’s added to that dynamic, it could only be magic on show night at the Jean Pierre Complex in Port-of-Spain,” said the organizer. Levy meanwhile, performed in St. Lucia on the weekend- the perfect warm up to what’s going to unfold in Trinidad.
