If You Made it To Machel Monday, You Must’ve Seen This…

On Monday, the energy of Trinidad lingered West. From parts South, East, North and even Tobago,   die hard Machel Montano fans filtered to the Hasely Crawford Stadium for yet another year of an event that’s always extraordinary, even when the lineup isn’t ridiculously ‘international.’

This year, the sole international act promoted was French Montana. The entertainer who’s been providing humanitarian relief in Uganda with recent efforts to assist his countrymen and women in Morroco launched, touched down in T&T on Monday evening it appeared, and took to Instagram to share the fact that local Immigration officials had ben awaiting his arrival on the tarmac where his private jet landed ahead of his concert appearance. On Monday night, the production of the event, which has drawn thousands over the years, seemed to have strengthened its focus on the promotion of love and unity. There was also a very apparent effort by Machel to introduce the emerging Soca artistes to the people. A performance by Chutney Soca Monarch winners, Nishard Mayrhoo and Neval Chatelal offered patrons a taste of the Indo-Trinbagonian culture- an aspect of the Carnival flavor that’s not always highlighted as much as it really should be.

A stage show that’s always eye-catching, the event this year boasted massive cultural displays from the iconic Mas creator, Peter Minshall who has teamed up with Tunapuna based, Exodus Steel Orchestra to produce “The Eyes of God,” for the road in Carnival 2018. In December, Minshall stressed that he is not bringing a band of his own for Carnival. On stage at Machel Monday however, his masterful creations were larger than life and spoke volumes for his creative mind- certainly still incredibly coherent and full of exuberance. The ‘Soca Kingdom’ themed event was nothing like last year’s show, and while some felt it lacked something, others who live for ‘local’ appreciated the introduction and focus of artistes like M1, Turner, Erphaan Alves who Montano credited as one of his songwriters, Patrice Roberts who thanked Machel for his steadfast training of which she was a student, Nailah Blackman who appeared with Jamaica’s Shenseea, two time International Soca Monarch King, Voice, Machel Montano Music Academy winners, Abdiel Matamora of Trinidad and Tobago and  St. Lucia’s Lu City- a duo that consists of Tyler Auguste and Jean Farrah, who collaborated with Montano on a track called, “Let It Go,” among other young acts.

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.
