Rags and Flags? No… Cell Phones. But, Destra Let’s ‘Em Have It!

The feting culture has made a total 360 degree turn. We’ve gone from kicking up dust, sweating and truly palancin’, to dressing up with heels and clutches, wearing Gucci loafers and standing up front with cell phones like reporters, in carnival fetes. Yes. That’s where we’ve reached!

One carnival mainstay- the Queen of Bacchanal isn’t having it though. Much like Fay Ann Lyons has repeatedly called for over the years, Destra is today speaking out on the new-age vibe killer- the cell phone abomination in fetes. The “Soca Family” singer performed at the  Eye Slam concert event on Wednesday night in Chaguanas and while she said she had a great time being there, she seemed less than thrilled about the fact that there were so many cell phones projected in the air, recording her.

“Eye Slam Posse, allyuh real get on! Fete was ram but yuh see alluyuh and these cell phones in de fete… (squinted eye emoji)… You can only get the real soca experience if yuh let it all go! Trust me! But still…. great vibes.”

One week prior, soca artist, Voice- the reigning International Soca Monarch King, hosted his birthday event in Chagaramas, Trinidad. A photo emerged of his performance and what else was there to see, but a sea of mobile phones recording his every move. There has been tremendous mumbling about the feting culture shift, over the years. From photographers making it their business to get the right shot of patrons who seemingly go to fetes only for that purpose, to the selfie scourge while big artistes are killing themselves on stage to get patrons to move and leave with a lasting memory, the feting culture shift is real.

Nicki released new music today.

It takes very little to spark interest on the Net. A few days ago, Cardi B’s pregnancy reveal sent news agencies globally, off the deep end. After that, Nicki Minaj paraded her sexy-self across the floor at the Los Angeles  Lakers vs. Houston Rockets game on Tuesday, leaving tongues dangling as she reemerged on the social scene. She’s been off the radar for a bit, laying low in anticipation of the release of her upcoming album. Before that however, the Trinidad and Tobago born rapper, released two new tracks today.

On Tuesday, Minaj pretty much channeled a dominatrix at the NBA game in LA, donning a black patent leather and fishnet ensemble, uniquely pulled together by a pair of spike-covered knife pumps from Balenciaga’s Spring 2018 collection. Minaj definitely scored points at the game for making a public appearance that would certainly be on everyone’s lips in the lead up to her double track release today. The singles, “Chun Li” and “Barbie Tingz,” will make up Minaj’s fourth full-length album. Her previously released album was 2014’s ‘The PinkPrint.’

Take a look at Nicki’s hot-gal ensemble and let us know whether you think she created the desired effect.

Jamaica Carnival Ends, Shenseea Keeps the Net LIT.

The Caribbean superstars came out in full force as Jamaica’s Carnival excitement climaxed on Sunday with road revelry quite similar to what’s experienced in Trinidad and Tobago and other parts of the world where carnival is a staple. Jamaican dancehall sensation, Shenseea however, kept the internet lit with videos and photos all giving the world a glimpse of the carnival euphoria, this time, on her island.

Shenseea was on fire yesterday, in Jamaica.

The dancehall beauty, who’s managed to steal the hearts of global audiences in less than five years, maintains her social media engagement like no other. That, we believe, is what may be the defining tool in this young artist’s powerful marketing and promotion strategy. In Jamaica yesterday, Shenseea partied like a true Caribbean fetter. She wore an amazing fuchsia feathered costume delivered by Xodus Carnival and rubbed shoulders with the likes of T&T’s Bunji Garlin and fellow Jamaican artist, Aidonia on the road.

Other Caribbean celebs like Aidonia and T&T’s Bunji Garlin were a part of the road revelry in Jamaica on Sunday.

A number of Trinidad and Tobago carnival thrills made their way over to JA this year, among them, JAM Nation- an event that draws thousands annually in T&T. Caesar’s Army was there again with their AMBush event as well. The Caribbean is undoubtedly proving to be the essence of global fun and excitement. From carnival revelry to cruises like Soca on the Seas that provide carnival entertainment and Caribbean cultural thrills on  board, there’s no denying that the Caribbean’s where it’s at!
