The US has quickly become the Carnival capital of the world, the pandemic having forced the relocation of many of the Caribbean’s Soca artistes, but even before that there were Soca artistes like De Postman who represented hard for the genre.


His real name is Sherwin Rogers, and he’s been living in the US for over 30 years. Despite taking up residence overseas, De Postman has remained a patriot of his homeland, Trinidad and Tobago. Since the late 90s, he’s been knocking on the doors of radio stations, delivering Soca tracks religiously. Over 50 singles to his credit, Rogers who’s dubbed, ‘The Coast to Coast man,’ says songs like ‘Riot,’ which kick started his career, and others like, ‘Fetterholic’ and ‘Spread Out,’ are just a sample of the music he’s worked on and effectively released for Soca lovers. Now, following a hiatus that saw Rogers become a certified plumber in the US, and even following the release of a song called, ‘Yes Everybody Matters’ in the summer of 2020, he has released a new single with hopes of making further inroads toward 2022.


The new single, “Party Nice,” came to Rogers after he’d secured a beat by Rapid Beats out of St Lucia. “I’d been on a job and while working, I got the melody for the beat. It definitely had a vibe and I was excited to lay it down in studio,” he said. His time away from music allowed the artiste to do a lot of self-introspection, and with that has come a greater awareness of his calling – his love for music.

‘Party Nice’ was released on November 5th, complete with a video. “I believe this song has the potential to be a break through hit; I think it’s a song to watch,” he said excitedly. Happy to be back at music, De Postman is reveling in his re-established tie to the Caribbean music industry. “My heart has never left Soca. I love the music and the people, the culture and the energy of it all. I am proud to contribute, even as I live in the US,” he said.

Both hard copy and digital, IslandLime Magazine’s on a mission. In the ever-expanding world that we now occupy, efforts continue to share the most authentic Caribbean energy, with everyone outside the Diaspora. It’s not a new idea but the man behind it has all the gumption it takes to make it make sense.

Simon Baptiste believes in the Caribbean potential.

Simon Baptiste says his team’s vision is to create a global platform that allows for the stories of Caribbean creators and creatives, to be shared with people around the world – people who are anxious to discover more about the heartbeat of the region. “Although we recognize the importance of what goes on within our region, there are also hundreds of tales – fiction and non fiction, being crafted by islanders in territories that stretch from North America ti Australia,” he said in a recent Ebuzztt chat. “It’s our job to reveal the players and the art.”

The magazine’s official launch took place on July 4th in Port- of- Spain, Trinidad and featured performances by Key DeVere and John G. In the aftermath of the launch, Simon issued a statement, thanking folks who came out in support. He explained that the rationale behind delivering the project now, lies in understanding that we – the Caribbean people, built nations. “A chain of over 700 islands, encompassing 1,063,000 square miles, has produced incomparable talent- people who have left and continue to leave an indelible mark on art, fashion, music, literature, entertainment, sports, science and technology,” he wrote. Baptiste praised his people, adding, “From Capitol Hill, to working spaces in Nairobi, to the offices of an advertising agency, Down Under, you’ll find someone who has island roots, and spreads the philosophy of what makes the Caribbean and its people so unbelievably spectacular.”
