“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.

Amid unprecedented upheaval over the present state of global economies and intense pressure on healthcare systems worldwide, mass deaths and a mandate by the World Health Organisation for world leaders to remove Covid-19 restrictions, well loved, reggae artist Buju Banton has broken his silence.

Buju, in three very honest social media posts on Wednesday, told the world that he is done with Covid-19, suggesting that it has been a plan all along. Known for his vocal stance against injustice whether via his music or perfectly articulated epressions, Buju who continues to enjoy his freedom following years of incarceration in the United States between 2009 and 2018, said, “We are tired of you intellectual fools trying to tell us how to live our lives. If you are so smart why haven’t you found the cure for cancer?”

The entertainer’s outbursts come one day after a video for the remix of Koffee’s single “Pressure,” on which his powerful, raspy vocals are featured, was uploaded to YouTube.

Countless hit singles and an authentic charisma that makes us all know that Blaxx is one of the real ones, is enough for us to fight to ensure that he stays with us much longer. In fact, so impassioned is artiste and DJ, Dawg E Slaughter about ailing entertainer Dexter ‘Blaxx’ Stewart’s medical condition that he has started an effort to help cover medical expenses for the ‘Breathless’ singer.

Blaxx has reportedly been ailing for approximately three weeks. It is understood that he has suffered kidney complications but is steadily recovering. EBUZZTT was unable to speak directly with the artist, however persons close to him explained that he is resting and recuperating.

When news emerged that Blaxx was ill, Dawg E Slaughter jumped into action, first requesting the artist’s permission before spearheading a drive to generate funds from fans and anyone who felt compelled to contribute in anyway that they could. Bank account information was shared and reposted by artistes like Destra Garcia and Shurwayne Winchester. The effort however became a talking point among some on social media who began questioning why the artiste should be assisted when “soca artistes make their millions.” Utterances like this one, and others of similar expression has led to much hurt by some members of the Soca industry. One artist, speaking on the condition of anonymity told Ebuzztt that it’s sad that the general public continuously chooses to condemn Soca artistes, when in reality, their perceptions of soca music’s creators are far from the truth.

With the exception of Soca’s veteran heavyweight, Machel Montano and a few others, the soca music industry’s contributors, according the artist, have struggled for years and now, with the pandemic, the savings of those who may have managed to save, could be exhausted. “Nobody is working and everyone of us have families, just like everybody else,” expressed the entertainer.
