Published

on

Last Tuesday, Kes the Band chronicled their 4th year of its Tuesday on the Rocks event. One of the most highly anticipated events during the Carnival week, the O2 Park saw scores of patrons ready to support Kes the band’s ‘Journey through the Music”. Ebuzztt was there for the action and recaps some of the highlights of the signature event.  


  • Well organized.

Not that its any surprise but Kes had their Ts crossed this year. Notwithstanding a fairly thick crowd, there were no unnecessarily long lines to enter, secured parking was made available at the Army base and shuttles for those who didn’t want to strut the short distance to the venue. There was one main entrance irrespective of the ticket you were holding so there was no confusion as to where to line up. Access to food and drinks were within reach, photo booths to document your attendance, a make-up booth was accessible for a nice price if you were into that kind of thing and bathroom facilities were clean and outfitted with air conditioning. The show started after 8pm with Farmer Nappy and De Red Boyz kicking things off but Kes The Band took full flight at 10pm.

 

  • Girls Girls Girls!

The ladies love ’em some Kees! They came out in their numbers last Tuesday. Some wore heels, some wore flats, some donned shorts and others flowy skirts and rompers but no one was afraid to wine down low or scream to the top of their lungs when the man of the moment graced the stage. In between the large girl groups that attended, it appeared to be well suited for lovers as well as many couples were spotted.

 

  • Bajan Invasion

Bajan Soca superstars Edwin Yearwood, Alison Hinds and Rupee were all incredible. They not only made Barbados proud but the entire Caribbean with their raw talent and powerful stage presence delivering hit after hit! Alison, the epitome of sexual class, had all eyes on her as she delivered some of her popular tracks. Rupee maintained his charm and easily captivated the crowd with his old hits and 2016/2017 hits ‘Tipsy’ and “I’ll be okay”. The trio professed their love for Trinidad and Tobago countlessly during their performances, calling it their second home, and it’s safe to say by the crowd’s reception, the feeling was mutual!

  • Vice Versa Love from Barrington Levy, Kes and patrons.

Shifting gears a bit was the introduction of a legend to the Kes The Band stage. Jamaican reggae hit maker, Barrington Levy was part and parcel of the show and based on what we witnessed, it’s safe to say, he’s like fine wine, getting better with age. The reggae superstar had everyone singing word for word as he walked on to the stage casually dressed, with a portable microphone in tow giving him the freedom to easily engage the crowd and move about the stage. Singing mostly acapella, supported by the vocals of the thousands gathered, Levy sang some of his favourite hits like “Too Experienced”, “Here I Come”, “Vice Versa Love”, “Everybody Must Work” and “Black Roses”! Maintaining his presence and showcasing his versatility with different genres of music, Kes also joined Mr. Levy on stage for some collaborations admonishing how much of an inspiration Levy had on him musically growing up. Undoubtedly, Barrington Levy was definitely one of the biggest highlights of the night and further exciting fans announcing that his new album would be dropping soon.

  • Music was the mission

The event was not restricted to one genre of music as Kees also performed some of his own island pop and reggae material. He definitely seemed humbled by his fans’ support and constantly maintained engagement with the patrons, even those on top in the VIP area. He echoed the sentiments of his fellow compadre in the business, Machel Montano and others, to spread and promote love. Kees had his uncut moments, creating intimate moments with his fans singing some of his older recordings like ‘Fighter”. 

  • An Unexpected Guest

Ravi B can mash up any fete whether or not he’s scheduled to be there. To the surprise of many, Ravi B was introduced and immediately poured his energy over the crowd. They lapped it all up. The Chutney Soca Monarch Champ and fellow Digicel endorsee to Kees, was not scheduled to performed but maintained that he had to come out and support his brother. MX Prime & The Ultimate Rejects were exceptional as usual and veteran Ronnie McIntosh and Voice were well received by the patrons as well. With Trinidad and Tobago, Barbados and Jamaica well represented, the Caribbean connection was strongly felt. Team Kes executed well because at the end, it’s safe to say that their objective ‘Mission Through Music’ was realized.

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

Published

on

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.
