Shal Marshall Comes Under Attack. Authorities Take Aim.

Published

on

Shal Marshall may be having a pretty good season but his name and reputation may be at stake if he doesn’t take the Telecommunications Authority of Trinidad and Tobago seriously. He’s agreed in essence to abstain from the promotion of a song done collaboratively with St. Lucia’s, Motto and St. Vincent and the Grenadine’s Hypa 4000 – a track called, “Take Jam.” The song boasts lyrics that are derogatory without much of a verbal expression of it.

“Take jam in yuh mudder hmm … bend over gyal … bend over in your favourite position gyul.” – TAKE JAM

Marshall’s single, “Splinters” along with his other carnival 2018 release, “Legend” have been keeping him on top in the past few weeks and it’s highly likely that he will be at every fete this Carnival season. This however did not stop CEO of the Telecommunications Authority, Dr John Prince, from penning a letter to the president of the TT Publishers and Broadcasters Association (TTPBA), Daren Lee Sing, about his concerns regarding “Take Jam”.

TATT feels the statements uttered in Marshall and Motto’s song could prove inappropriate and degrading to women in particular. The body is now calling on the TTPBA to continue to exercise socially responsible behaviour in the selection of content broadcast across the nation’s airwaves. It adds that during the Carnival season, on air programming content tends to be of a highly sexual and salacious nature; particularly during periods when children are likely to be listening or watching.

Marshall, when contacted by the Trinidad Newsday Newspaper, said he had no problem with abandoning the track for the season, based on the concerns raised.

“If that is their view, we can respect what they are saying and not promote it any more, especially in T&T. As for me, I don’t mind not playing it and respecting their views. That is no problem for me.”

Nicki Minaj Showed Off That Trini Sex Appeal at an NBA Game and The Internet Is Loving It. Oh! Did We Mention She Dropped 2 New Tracks Today!?

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.

Published

on

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!
