I admire the women of Soca, not only the ones who are dominating the stage right now, but the ones who came before us as well. I’ll be performing at “Soka with Her” alongside my all female band, Sass. I’m always excited to showcase female musicianship, so you can expect nothing but pure energy,” said the ‘FATT’ singer.

The event will feature a select cast of male soca artistes to compliment the show, assured Glasgow, explaining that the event will be everything patrons look forward to at carnival and then some. “Get ready for something really special.

The rush by media outlets to be “first” is proving to be a problem. Even as investigators scrambled to the scene of the helicopter crash that claimed the lives of nine persons in Los Angeles on Sunday, US media outlet, TMZ had been informing the world that basketball star, and father of four, Kobe Bryant had been killed. The rush to be first is now being criticised, with several people in authority lamenting the fact that family members may not have been given the news just one hour after the incident had taken place. TMZ had however broken the story, sending the world into a state of shock.

TMZ’s Harvey Levin

The media outlet was criticised by Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who told reporters, “It would be extremely disrespectful to understand that your loved one … perished and you learn about it from TMZ.” He said TMZ had posted the story a little more than one hour after police said they received reports of a downed aircraft.

Los Angeles County Undersheriff Tim Murakami also criticised TMZ in a tweet. “I am saddened that I was gathering facts as a media outlet reported … Kobe had passed,” Murakami wrote. “I understand getting the scoop but please allow us time to make personal notifications to their loved ones. It’s very cold to hear of the loss via media. Breaks my heart.”

Kobe Bryant leaves to mourn, his wife Vanessa Bryant and three other daughters.

What are your thoughts? Do you think it was insensitive for TMZ to run with the report before ensuring family members had been notified or do you think it goes with the territory?

Was TMZ Wrong for Running the Story on Kobe's death before confirming the family Had been notified?
