“Entertainers”don’t be afraid to speak out on the real issues facing our country. It wouldn’t harm your fan base or the fame or the money. Because it affecting yuh fans too.” – M1

M1 has been speaking out on various social issues in Trinidad and Tobago.

He’s always saying it as he sees it, even when the possibility of victimization is apparent. The artiste most still refer to as Menace but who changed his sobriquet to M1 a few years ago, is calling on his cohorts in entertainment to speak out on social issues. A UK travel advisory lists Trinidad and Tobago as a place where there are high levels of violent crime and a place where terrorists are very likely to try to carry out attacks. Menace, has, in the past few weeks, been expressing his views publicly via social media, almost daily, hoping for some attention on the matters, and redress.

The United Nations yesterday questioned Trinidad and Tobago’s government on its stance on the issue of assisting Venezuelan refugees – this after some 80 or so Venezuelans were sent back to their country by T&T’s immigration. Prior to that, M1 had questioned the issue of illegal immigrants in the country, saying that some of those arriving in Trinidad and Tobago were up to no good and making it clear that the twin island Republic could do without any additional problems.

Now, with much said over the past two months, the Sangre Grande native who released a new single called, ‘Mama’ on the Golden Riddim last month, is calling on his peers in the industry to use their celebrity for the greater good of society.

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.

Olatunji Yearwood’s herculean effort to expose the Soca music genre to the European market and by extension, the world, is being praised by his cohorts in the Caribbean music industry. Shurwayne Winchester, who himself, has worked hard to take the genre to music lovers around the world, on Sunday said he is extremely proud of the former Groovy Soca Monarch champ.

Shurwayne Winchester is proud of Olatunji.

Beneath an EBUZZTT post, Shurwayne said, “I am proud of this man. He won more than he can imagine.” Winchester went on to point out that history will one day show that when Soca is called, it was showcased to the world by this young, impressive artist.

On Saturday night, Ola took the stage on the X Factor UK where he performed a new single written merely a few days before the performance. The single, “Jiggle” was well received by the UK audience, but unfortunately he did not receive enough votes that would secure him a space into the next round of competition.

Destra congratulated the young artiste, saying his parents would be very proud.

Destra Garcia, a phenomenal culture ambassador herself, also took the time on Sunday to give respect to Olatunji for his effort on the television show.

“Proud of you Ola. You flew the flag so high for soca and for your county, Trinidad and Tobago on behalf of all of us.

 

Destra went on to say, “Your parents would have been the proudest. You did well Tunji… you did well. This was just not your time. But now the world knows who Olatunji ‘Tadow’ Yearwood is. Love always my brother and friend.”
