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.

Mark Myrie, the Jamaican reggae and dancehall giant the world knows best as Buju Banton, has been enjoying his freedom. He was released from US prison, having served a 9-year sentence, in December 2018 and since that time, the artiste’s spirit has been nothing short of triumphant.

On Monday night at the AC Hotel by the Marriott in New Kingston, Jamaica, the artiste celebrated his 45th birthday. He made a grand entry, showing gratitude with hearty smiles at the event which would mark his first official birthday celebration post release. Like fine wine, Buju assented to his 45th birth milestone and even with his simple and humble ways, fans of the artiste could tell that the best was yet to come.

The all white affair saw a number of well known Jamaican friends of the artiste in attendance, among them Sean Paul, Jamaica Deejay and personality Jabba and Romain Virgo. Buju’s Long Walk to Freedom Tour has seen him take stages around the Caribbean including Trinidad and a Tobago and Guyana shows hosted by High a Frequency Entertainment. Most recently, Buju crossed international waters, taking the stage in Amsterdam. His presence on stage, each time, has been nothing short of momentous, and some may say, near spiritual. At his Birthday “get together” on Monday, prior to engaging in chit chat with his friends and family, Buju prayed. It would be a symbol of his gratitude and love to the Most high God for all that he has gotten him through.
