Who is this Mr. Killa and why the hell is he mashing up Trinidad and Tobago? The King of ‘Mash Up’ hails from Grenada and like a whirlwind he’s invaded Trinidad in the heat of the Carnival season… and guess what? Nobody’s complaining! Go brave Killa, go brave!

The entertainer, born, Hollice Mapp, hails from Guave. He’s no newbie. In fact, Mr. Killa’s been Grenada’s culture ambassador for quite some time. He’s an incredible entertainer. In Ibiza a couple years ago, Mr. Killa’s on stage antics led to an insane viral energy that immediately propelled him further. In the wake of that, his social media activity thrust him even higher toward stardom in the Caribbean, amplifying his worth as an all round entertainer. From dancing to performance and vocal ability, Mapp has all that it takes to stand among the best in the music industry.

On Sunday night in Arima, East Trinidad, Mr. Killa made his presence felt, like only he could, at the semi finals of the International Socia Monarch competition- so much so that the online competition punters have already crowned him King, ahead of Fantastic Friday. The artiste’s tune, ‘Run Wid It’ has influenced pure wild abandon at fetes, in recent days. People have reportedly been picking other people, tables, chairs and other items of solid weight. There’s no doubt that Mr. Killa’s influence is real and powerful.

Take a look at his performance from the Semi Finals of the ISM competition, on Sunday night. Let us know if you think Mr. Killa’s the man to beat on finals night in Port-of-Spain.

Buju Cleared for T&T Entry. Private Jet Arrives on Friday. Watson Speaks Out.

Trinidad and Tobago is bursting at the seams with excitement as the I Am Legend Festival headlined by Buju Banton, is just days away. An official advisory from the Ministry of National Security today highlighted that Buju, along with Luciano and Wayne Wonder had all been cleared for entry into Trinidad and Tobago by the Chief Immigration Officer.

Buju Banton is free to enter Trinidad and Tobago on Friday.

There was some concern last week after an announcement was made by the Minister of National Security, Stuart Young, indicating that he had not seen documents related to any request for Buju to be allowed entry into Trinidad and Tobago. It was subsequently reported that High Frequency Entertainment- the promotional outfit that will host Buju and his friends at the I Am Legend Festival on Sunday, had in fact submitted documents to the Ministry of National Security since November 2018. They re-submitted the request and received notice of authorization on Wednesday.

Ebuzztt.com understands that Buju will arrive in T&T via private jet on Friday. The artiste’s last visit to Trinidad was in 2009 when he performed at that year’s I Am Legend concert at the very same venue, the concert capital- Queen’s Park Savannah. “There is something mystical and magical about this occasion. It’s been exactly 10 years since Buju last performed here. He’s received so much support from the people of Trinidad and Tobago over the years and there is no doubt that he is grateful for all the love that’s been shown, over the years,” said High Frequency Entertainment CEO, Glenroy Watson.

Buju Banton was last experienced in concert, in Trinidad, in 2009.

The stage is set for what Watson assures, will be a memorable show of love and unity at the Savannah on Easter Sunday. Tourist arrivals to T&T, according to Watson, has soared in the past few days and is expected to increase further, in the next day or two. “There’s no doubt in our minds that this festival is an attraction to Trinidad at this time. It’s an economic booster and I’m happy to deliver this to my country,” he said. He however expressed disappointment in the corporate sector, explaining that most of his expenses have been satisfied out of pocket. “It’s not an easy road as Buju said, but with God at the helm, I’m guaranteeing everyone that this festival will continue annually- corporate sponsorship or not,” said Watson, highlighting that despite all that this event has done and will do, to boost local employment for the period, increase tourist arrivals, earn foreign exchange for the country and so much else, he has received no major sponsorship or government support for the benefits T&T will essentially reap.

Koffee makes her T&T debut on Sunday at the Queen’s Park Savannah for the I Am Legend Festival. The youths are anxious to catch her live.

The I Am Legend Festival is the biggest event of its kind to hit T&T, in recent years. Buju Banton’s name wields tremendous weight in these parts with even youths below 18 years of age, eager to experience the reggae hit maker, live. Banton, best known to many as simply, Gargamel, will be joined on stage by young star on the rise, Koffee, veteran reggae stalwart, Luciano, melody maker, Wayne Wonder and of course, Singing Melody, Tony Curtis and LUST.
