Radio Personality Smooth Calls for Charity in Carnival.

He’s got a big mouth and an even bigger heart. That’s why, for urban radio personality, Mr. Smooth, the concept of giving back is as much a major part of his life, as radio is. One of the newest Soca artistes on the circuit, the young media professional says he’s always felt inclined to help those in need. A foundation now set up to begin acting on his thoughts, Smooth, whose real name is Randy Mansoor, will host his first major charity event, dubbed 34 For Charity, on Sunday February 3rd.

Randy Mansoor is best known as Mr. Smooth.

“All proceeds of my event will go to charity and my plan is to ensure that amid the excitement and the spending in Carnival, those in need are not forgotten,” said the young father of one. Smooth celebrated his 34th birthday on January 13th. He explained that beginning this year, the event- a boat ride, will be hosted in celebration of his birthday, but all earnings will be donated to people in need across the length and breadth of Trinidad and Tobago.

A number of artist friends in his corner, along with sponsors, Smooth told EBUZZTT that he’s been receiving extremely good feedback thus far with artistes like Patrice Roberts, Nadia Batson, Salty, Jadel, Swappi, Preedy, Shurwayne Winchester and others, showing full support.

Separately, the Arima native continues to push his music and his sound. He says he’s enjoying the music business and plans on pursuing success on that front as well. His Carnival 2019 singles, “Weekend Flex” and “High” have been receiving tremendous airplay across the FM dial, something Smooth says he is tremendously happy to be experiencing.

As the crime situation in Trinidad and Tobago continues to leave many on the twin island with a bitter taste in their mouths, another local artiste has stood up in protest, using his platform to draw attention to the problem. RKG’s new single, ‘Flatline’ comes on the heels of a recently released track by Gospel singer, Jaron Nurse, that deals with the same issue of crime.

Drug abuse and gang warfare are plaguing the country. RKG says he had been in studio, prepared to lay the vocals for another ladies anthem when something struck him. “I suddenly felt like I needed to contribute something positive,” he said in a chat with EBUZZTT. The song speaks about a young man who got caught up with guns and was murdered. The second verse speaks about a young woman who got caught up with a gangster. She also died. The track’s message deals with the inevitable consequences that face people who choose negative lifestyles.
