The energy surrounding Barbados’ annually anticipated Crop Over fun, was no different this year. Despite the absence of the Bajan pop princess, Rihanna on the island, CropOver was filled with smiles, good vibes and even acclaimed female celebs, loved world over and definitely in the Caribbean.

Bajan Soca Queen, Alison Hinds represented as she always does, donning a one piece costume that did her body absolute justice. She was all smiles, soaking in the hot Caribbean sun, parading the route and at one point, taking a wine with fellow soca entertainer, Sekon Sta, atop a music truck, as you would’ve seen above.

Nailah Blackman was picture perfect for CropOver.

Annually, many make their way over to Barbados for Cropover. The fete circuit, many agree, is becoming quite similar to the Trinidad and Tobago carnival fete vibe, with many all inclusive events offering true carnival bliss to fetters on that island.

Rihanna was not at Cropover this year.

Over the past few weeks, a number of Soca stars thrilled soca lovers in Barbados, among them, Shal Marshall, Patrice Roberts and Nailah Blackman. Blackman was even a part of the Kadooment day fun, sharing her sexy physique, all dolled up in her costume provided by Khepri Kulture, with social media fans. The ‘Sokah’ singer who recently appeared as a guest on Canada’s ‘Your Morning Show’, was in her glee to say the least, having been spotted in the company of her Jamaican sister, Shenseea, at one point. The two have become best buds since recording ‘Baddish’ together last year.

Rihanna is likely to pop up on the Copover scene next year. The internationally acclaimed singer, actress and businesswoman has been working on what Rolling Stone reported to be two albums, soon to be released.

What a weekend it was for fans of caribbean hotties, Shenseea and T&T’s Nailah Blackman. Both entertainers performed, alongside a number of other awesome Caribbean acts this past Saturday at Nailah’s Sokah Origins event held in South Trinidad. The young artiste who celebrated her birthday in late November, brought a star studded cast to her event, key among them, Jamaica’s reigning ‘hot gyal’, Shenseea.

The duo who collaborated on a track called, ‘Baddish’ in 2018, gave it a go again, heading into Carnival 2019. They hit the stage at Sokah Origins, delivering, “We Ready” just after performing ‘Baddish’. The revved up crowd was definitely a sight to see as they seemed to just want to reach out and touch the Jamaican entertainer. Phones on record, the crowd sang along to the artiste’s music, giving her the ammunition she needed to perfect her show.

Patrice Roberts and Sekon Sta were guests performers at the Sokah Origin event.

Separately, Nailah Blackman’s been killing the soca circuit across the Caribbean, even touring internationally for the past year, reaching as far as Europe with the Soca on The Seas team earlier this year. Her most recent stop was Australia. Meanwhile, Shenseea maintains strong appeal, consistently delivering some of the hottest dancehall tracks, which come complete with her down to earth personality and appealing sensuality.

The Sokah Origins event, Nailah’s second consecutive birthday event, drew a pretty good crowd of patrons who’d come out to see Blackman perform with her band, aptly named, ‘Sokah The Band’. Other  artists to hit the stage included a very sexy, Patrice Roberts, Nadia Batson, Preedy, Kees, Problem Child out of St. Vincent, Jamaica’s Dovey Magnum, Erphaan Alves, Ricardo Drue, 5 Star Akil, Sekon Sta, Lyrikal among others.

Mark Myrie- Buju Banton is now a free man. He arrived in Jamaica last night to much fan fare and since that time, social media has  been abuzz.

Buju stands in the Immigration area at the Norman Manley Int’l Airport, flanked by an employee and fan.

Representing Public Relations team, Destine Media, in a press statement issued, said Buju’s first desire post release was a clean glass of water to flow through his system.

Admittedly, Buju’s journey to freedom has been a long and traumatic one. “Not only traumatizing for Buju himself, but also for his family as well, who was stripped of a father, provider and friend. But with the love and support of family, friends, and fans, he pushed through day by day,” said the media release. “He would rise at 7am and start his day with a prayer, followed by an apple, orange or ripe banana,” it went on to state.

According to the media statement, during his incarceration, Myrie stripped himself of the moniker “Buju Banton” and immersed himself into the reality that he was confronted with, by living in the now and not looking at the past. He also occupied himself with reading, meditation, and led study groups among his fellow inmates.

Destine Media explained that plans are afoot to celebrate Buju’s life and contribution to music with the Long Walk to Freedom Tour, explaining however that dates are still being finalized. It added that the first show will take place in Jamaica in Spring of 2019.

“Buju Banton‘s music makes bad people wanna do good. I really wish that he was out here. We’re missing one of our messengers, ya know? This is me speaking from the heart. We need people like him out here.”
