More and more, local entertainers are understanding the power of online marketing. Singer, Patrice Roberts has been capitalising on the viral option, making her engagements on local soil and internationally, available for all to see even after her gigs. Patrice World – a video blog featuring the behind the scenes action enjoyed by the ‘A Little Wine’ singer is updated pretty often and posted on the soca star’s Facebook fan page.

Patrice Roberts has certainly grown into a phenomenal stage act. She kick started her career in the Calypso arena and eventually moved on to make a mark with some of the most amazing carnival anthems of the past decade. As one third of the HD frontline which features Machel Montano and singer/songwriter, Farmer Nappy, Patrice hones her craft and owns an appeal that’s quickly broadening, expanding to cities and countries far and wide.

Patrice and her DJ, Titan VCD are gearing up for the Music Love Tour 2013.

No Stopping The Rasta Preacher Now. DJ Khaled Delivers Buju Banton to Even His Detractors.

The irony. In a world where a man can be entrapped miles away from his home country, detained for near 10 years, released, and return to being an even bigger symbol of power and positivity than he ever was, proves there are no limits. Buju Banton’s fire blazes on.

Internationally acclaimed multi millionaire music mogul, DJ Khaled’s been a close friend and ally of Mark Myrie, the artiste we all fondly refer to as Buju Banton, for some 19 years. Khaled, a US national born to Palestinian parents, has been grounded enough to know the sweet beauty that can often be found in the harsh rubble of ghetto cultured living. It’s no surprise that his latest album release, an honorary tribute to his young son, Asahd, features a few of Jamaica’s best, among them Buju Banton, Sizzla Kalonji and Mavado.

Nailah’s Sick! Here’s Why.

Not in the literal sense.

Nailah Blackman

Ok… ok… let’s clear this up. The soca hottie’s in need of no pill or treatment. Nailah’s perfectly healthy but she’s got a sick ambition that’s almost guaranteed to take her on a whirlwind career adventure. Truth be told, female artistes in the Caribbean’s less structured music industry, often find themselves falling victim to the rigors of their reality. It’s really not as glamorous as they make it look on social media. Nailah Blackman’s however in the running to becoming one of the caribbean’s biggest superstars if she continues to play her cards right.

Here’s why we say that!

  1. Nailah’s got grit. Unlike every other female soca artiste in the business, Nailah’s stuck to her goal of delivering music the people will enjoy year round. She isn’t getting caught up in the politics of the music business, and since she kicked off her career just about two years ago, she’s remained consistent.
  2. She understands the power of Social Media. In a world where social media platforms are ruining lives, perpetuating violence and encouraging gossip and vanity, Nailah’s using it all to her advantage. She’s got her fan accounts, her hashtag game on lock and she’s filling in all the Caribbean entertainment gaps with posts on all the trending platforms, which essentially keeps the buzz on her, constantly.
  3. She’s focused on upping her game. Now, the harsh truth of the entertainment industry is that from the moment you stop trying to be the best, you fall all the way to the back of the class. In the Caribbean especially, the odds are harshly against the rise of female entertainers. For Patrice Roberts, Nailah Blackman, Destra Garcia, Spice, Shenseea, Fay Ann Lyons, Nessa Preppy and the lot of gals in the race, consistency and development is imperative. In her short time at the forefront of the music industry, Blackman’s team has secured her placement at the BET Awards, Coachella and other top tiered industry events. She’s been to Jamaica Carnival and several other major Carnival related events worldwide. Truth is, she picked up steam and she has never slowed down.
  4. Nailah’s interested in meaningful collaborations. Maybe she’s a true believer in the Law of Attraction but it seems like this has been working to her advantage. Nailah’s been on a relationship building drive. Her collaborations, in a very short space of time with artistes like Kees, Shenseea, Fay Ann Lyons, Sekon Sta and Erphaan Alves, Tarrus Riley and Ding Dong have proven incredibly effective. She’s pretty much been building a catalogue of music that’s unparalleled while at the same time, benefitting from powerful networks. Now, she’s on to creating her debut album, outside of Trinidad and Tobago.
