Nadia Batson Rings In Her Birthday. Destra Plans on Getting her DRUNK!

Published

Well, we certainly gotta look out for some crazy social media posts in the coming hours. Today, Caribbean songbird and one of the region’s most respected songwriters, Nadia Batson, celebrates her birthday. She’s been on the grind as expected but we’re guessing that today, the “Clear A Way” singer will be chillin a little, even if it’s against her will.

Destra and Nadia are good friends.

Just a few weeks ago, Soca star Destra Garcia celebrated her birthday with friends and family at the House of Bakanal in Port-of Spain. Of course Batson was there but the mistake she made was driving herself to the party. A shocked Garcia was completely thrown off. She asked Batson why she would drive herself to the party, expressing disappointment that she would not be able to guzzle down a few drinks with her. Well payback is a bi*tch they say so Nadia better look out because Destra ain’t playing today! The QOB has made it clear that she plans on getting Nadia drunk…

Nadia who performs at SocaSoakHer in South Trinidad along with Destra and a massive slate of female performers, on Saturday, has already unleashed a few catchy Soca tracks ahead of the upcoming Carnival season. One of our favorites so far is “Clear A Way.”

Now, we wait with bated breath to see what’s to come on the ‘gram in the hours ahead! This should be good….

The Bassman – The Mighty Shadow Passes On.

Another legend has left the earth. The Mighty Shadow, one of Trinidad and Tobago’s most unique calypsonians passed away at hospital this morning. He was 77 years old.

Word of his death has since spread like wildfire on social media as many send their condolences to family, friends and members of the cultural fraternity in Trinidad and Tobago.

Shadow was well admired for his unique style of vocal and stage execution. Always donning black, the veteran artist would wow crowds with simple theatrics and a bounce that many will forever know as “The Shadow”.

A former Road March King of Trinidad and Tobago, Winston Bailey contributed many carnival anthems during his career. In 1974 he had stolen the Road March race with a song called “Bassman” and in 2001 he did it again with “Stranger”. But beyond that, Shadow’s delivery of songs like “Poverty is Hell” spoke to the psyche of the nation’s people. EBUZZTT has learnt that the calypsonian was due to receive an honorary doctorate from the University of the West Indies this week. He is said to have died this morning at the Mt. Hope Hospital after suffering a stroke on Saturday.

One of Trinidad and Tobago’s most idolized soca artistes had been off radar for the past four days. Machel Montano has since re-emerged, having switched on his mobile phone and reconnected with the world. He says he had been on a four day retreat and had no access to his phone or any outside media. What he found upon reconnecting with social media was that his homeland of Trinidad and Tobago had suffered massive flooding and devastation.

Like many other entertainers, the Road March title holder immediately extended a message of hope to those who’ve been affected.

“This morning I was overwhelmed by the amount of messages of concern, prayer and well wishing. I was saddened to learn of the devastating floods that hit home in Trinidad and Tobago and my heart goes out to all those who are affected.”

The Siparia native who now resides in Los Angeles, explained that Trinidad and Tobago is a nation of great resilience and further saluted those who’ve helped during and in the aftermath of of the flooding. “Thank you for all the prayers and to all those who will continue to support the relief efforts,” he said on Instagram.
