Look out, there just might be someone waiting in the wings who’s inching closer to the spotlight ahead of both Grenada’s Spice Mas in just about one week’s time,  and the 2015 carnival calendar that starts with T&T’s Greatest Show on Earth come February 16th and 17th. He goes by the name, Skinny Banton and with a play on words that some may say, is a bit scandalous, the Grenada boy known simply as Skinny Banton, has been enjoying quite a bit of airplay already in Trinidad.

While some work day and night on well placed lyrics and perfected melodies, others just manage to wing it, and with their own personal flair, they make magic and leave lasting impressions. Now, for those of you who aren’t too familiar with this young entertainer, we’ll just fill you in on some of what we know. Skinny Banton shot to fame locally in Grenada after opening for T&T’s reggae hit maker, Marlon Asher on the Spice Isle in 2005. Since that time, he’s won several titles, among them the  2011-2012,  Carriacou Soca Monarch and the 2013 Road March and People’s Choice award in the Soca Monarch competition. His single, ‘Lifetime Tabanka’ was lapped up by the Grenadian soca lovers last year and we bore witness to that!

This year our EBUZZ crew is definitely watching how much of an impact this new single, ‘etc logo PRINTSoak It’ is having in Trinidad already. We suspect, the same vibe will be experienced when we touch down for Grenada’s Spice Mas next weekend. Last year, it was Mr. Killa’s ‘Rolly Polly’ that swept everyone away. He truly ‘made a mas’ throughout the Caribbean and internationally with the popular Carnival single and recently, when we saw the artiste in Trinidad, he hinted that there was something in the pipeline. He even sang a verse of the tune at Bunji Garlin’s birthday bash sending the crowd into loud cheers. That single however is yet to be released, but we look forward to hearing the final product.
