Archived: Nicki Minaj’s Mother, Carol Unveils Campaign To Fight Violence In Trinidad.

Published

Nicki Minaj may sometimes seem far removed from her birthplace, Trinidad and Tobago, but her mother sure isn’t. Carol Maharaj is in Trinidad. She’ll be visiting until Wednesday we’ve learnt, and her presence at home is all aimed at promoting peace and ending the scourge of domestic violence against women, that has left several women dead in recent time.

Maraj says she and her kids know how it feels to be trapped in a domestic violence situation.

In recent years, the island nation that boasts the Greatest Show on Earth and even the creation of the steelpan, has been publicly tainted because of a spiraling crime situation. Carol Maraj seems bent on doing something to draw focus to this problem. “Zero Tolerance For Violence” will be officially launched in the summer time, but according to Maraj, the foundation is being laid, and anyone who’d like to get involved can visit her website at www.carolmarajfoundation.com. 

Having joined forces during her stay with Hamid Rahman, CEO of Xtreme Dance Academy and entertainer and artiste manager, John Michael Alibocas, best known as Makamillion, Maraj who is also a gospel music singer, has been making the media rounds. At the Boomchampions 94.1FM, she said while she would love to walk freely through the streets of Trinidad and particularly, her hometown of upper Bournes Road, St. James, her daughter insists she doesn’t. In a humble tone, she said she has at least one security with her at all times. The campaign, which will materialize in the coming months, was conceptualized by Maraj. She explained that she too was a victim of domestic violence, telling the listening audience that this is not about public perception or ratings but rather to see the issue dealt with as it should.

Makamillion has been making the media rounds with Carol Maraj.

In a chat with Ebuzztt earlier, Makamillion said there will be T Shirts expressing the sentiment which will be given out to those interested in being a part of the effort. “She is concerned and she is worried about the people here in Trinidad and Tobago,” he explained, adding that there is something huge coming, but this is the first step. “She is a mother and she is coming back to her roots. She just wants people to understand the need to take a stance against the violence. She wants to reach out to the youths,” he said.

On her website, Maraj is quoted as saying she’s suffered many long years of physical and mental abuse and is finally free of her tormentor. She adds that she and her children, know just how hopeless being trapped in such a situation can feel and as such, her destiny, she said, is to be the voice for those in such a terrible position.

Barbados’ Rihanna Does 30 Right! Makes Huge Business Move Like Only She Would!

Published

Rihanna’s 30th birthday celebration included a big business move that could see the Barbados born Beaty rack up that dough, even while partying like the rockstar she is. Yesterday, even while celebrating the commencement of her “dirty thirties”, the Fenty brand creator released a new limited edition Fenty Beauty product- the Trophy Wife Highlighter. The super pigmented, metallic gold cream-to-powder was an instant hit when the brand debuted back in September 2017, according to Elle.com.

Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty Trophy Wife highlighter is available in a limited edition online.

The “Work” singer was certainly celebrated yesterday. A number of top tier celebs offered birthday shouts to Rih, among them ex-boyfriend, Chris Brown and DJ Khaled. Rihanna was pretty modest in her approach to the big 30th celebration however, posting via Instagram, an incredible “thank you” to her mother for her role in her life.

“10958 days ago @monica_fenty became a mother for the first time to her only daughter!” the singer wrote. “Today is just as much your birthday as it is mine! I love you mom!”

She also made sure to show her appreciation for the hard work and sacrifices that go into being a mom, writing, “Thank you for carrying me, birthing me, raising me, supporting me, teaching me, and loving me unconditionally! The woman I am today is because of everything that you are!”

“I thank God for perfectly hand picking you to be my mother when He sent my spirit to you! You are the greatest! Thank you!” 

RIHANNA

The Fenty Beauty Killawatt: Dirty Thirty highlighter ($34) now comes in a gold box that reads “Dirty Thirty” and the product pan is engraved with “XXX.” Currently, it’s only available on Fenty Beauty’s website.
