“Covid19 must not stop Christmas.”

Shurwayne winchester

This is how entertainer, ShurwayneWinchester feels about the uncertainty leading into the season of goodwill and giving- a season most anticipate annually, whether by religious persuasion or simply Trinbagonian tradition. 

“Love and light, peace and giving must push through and I’m ready to make that abundantly clear,” said Shurwayne on Tuesday night as he put the final touches on a song that’s just perfect for the season ahead. The track, a melodic, vibe-filled Soca parang anthem, wascollaboratively written by Preacher and Shurwayne was released on Wednesday to mark the beginning of the 100-day countdown to Christmas. It’s called, “Leave The Drinks By TheGate”- a call to action that’s guaranteed to catch on quickly. 

Trinidad and Tobago, like many countries around the world, has felt the devastating effects of the novel coronavirus, stopping many in their tracks- artistes and entertainment professionals around the Caribbean and the world, unable to travel and earn as they typically would. “Trinidad and Tobago is a special place when it comes to Christmas. This is traditionally a time for family gatherings and while we may not be able to mingle with each other as we usually would, we can still sing the music, smile and with a bit of physical distancing, we may still even be able to take a drink at a neighbour’sdoorstep,” said Shurwayne with a chuckle. 

Endorsing all public health directives, Shurwayne says this song is meant to bring a bit of much needed cheer to the people of T&T and the Caribbean by extension, while still promoting safety. “People from all walks of life are being affected by this virus. Many are experiencing depression and anxiety. This is just a personal effort to bring back those smiles and also to let my people know that where there is love, there is hope. Love lives in our Caribbean music and so, this is love from my lips to their ears,” he said. 

“Leave The Drinks By The Gate’, like all of Shurwayne’s music, is being globally distributed, and available for streaming via globally recognized streaming platforms. “I just really want to thank everyone who has supported me, for the love they’ve shown over the years. I want to let them all know that I believe in their resilience and we’ll get through this together,” said Shurwayne. 

The song’s lyric video has been done in Karoake style and was released simultaneously with the song. Shurwayne says he wants to encourage everyone to just sing along.

There’s a 26-year-old female attorney who hails from the fishing village of Charlotteville, Tobago, who, having recently achieved her lifelong goal of becoming an attorney at law, says she wants other young women to aspire for greatness.

Jose-Ann Hackett told EBUZZTT she’s wanted to be an attorney since she was just 5-years-old. Now attached to the law chambers of Ingrid Melville and Company in Tobago, Jose-Ann says it’s her personal desire to lead in the industry with integrity, honesty and wisdom “because while there may be many attorneys in our small society, there is always room for good, upstanding attorneys.”

Hackett along with her friend, Desiree Tommy were called to the BAR in December. Tommy is now an attorney at the firm of Hove and Associates Attorneys in Trinidad. She attended UWI, Mona and graduated with honours with a Bachelor of Law degree. She is the eldest of three while Hackett has one younger sibling.

“Be happy to see others win.” This was the expression of the young Trinidad based attorney as we questioned her on the advice she’d offer to other young females like herself. “Stay focused and consistent in pursuing your own goals and you will achieve your own success in time,” she encouraged. Tobago based Hackett told us she sees the profession as an opportunity to help those who are prejudiced, and bring justice for the voiceless. “I want young women to know that they should never allow stereotypical elements to define them. I am a testimony of persistence, determination and manifestation,” she said.

Desiree, who attended the Hugh Wooding Law School, obtaining a Legal Education Certificate before gaining work experience in Jamaica and St. Lucia, emphasised the need for young people to consistently work hard to achieve their goals, while engaging in activities that facilitate and enhance the learning and understanding of their desired professions. “If you happen to stumble or fall along the way, fix your crown and keep pushing,” she said.

Hopes for 2021

The young female attorneys hope to inspire others to follow their dreams and work hard toward it.

“My hope for 2021 is to be the change the society needs in whatever way I can effect change,” said Hackett. Her ambition is to continue working arduously to bring peace and justice for people who are prejudiced and helpless in their situations, within the confines of the law. “I want to make a mark in Trinidad and Tobago, in my own, unique way.”

Tommy says she strives to become the best version of herself possible. “As I continue to learn and grow in the legal profession, I will forever be humbled by the opportunity to vigorously defend and serve others. My hope is to be a role model to young women and a voice for the defenceless in the continued pursuit of justice.”

Nicki Minaj’s son is now three months old. On Saturday, fans of the entertainer finally got their first look at the baby boy, but still, there remains no confirmation of the child’s legal name, with Minaj simply referring to him as ‘Papa Bear’ in a caption that expressed her thanks to her bundle of joy for choosing her to be his mother.

The Trinidad and Tobago born rapper gave birth to her first baby with husband, Kenneth Petty, in September. Months prior, she had visited Trinidad and Tobago for Carnival 2019, but even while aboard their private flight to the festival, cryptic video posts suggested that Minaj may have already been expecting.

On Thursday, Nicki said becoming a mother to her son was the most fulfilling job she’s ever taken on. She also thanked her fans for their support, writing, “Thank you for your love & support throughout this journey. It’s meant so much to me.”
