Trinidad and Tobago entertainer, Kern Joseph, best known by his stage sobriquet, Trinidad Killa, has issued a legal warning to the People’s National Movement’s candidate for Point Fortin, Kennedy Richard Jr. in light of copyright infringement and the illegal use of his creative adaptation of his work.

In a legal document submitted on July 30th by attorney representing Joseph, Tamara Gregorio, it is stated that the artiste’s work was illegally used during the party candidate’s campaigning ahead of the August 10th General election. “I think it is unfair and unethical that my work is being used by the political party without my consent and further to that, without an agreement of payment facilitation for my creative adaptation,” said Joseph. His legal documentation submitted to the candidate, indicates that if the party does not move to cease their illegal action, High Court proceedings will commence.

Trinidad Killa’s music has, in recent years, grown in popularity particularly among the country’s youth, a target demographic by both major political parties. “I offered two different songs to both major political parties, for consideration of purchase by either. I was disappointed to learn that the People’s National Movement’s candidate for Point Fortin breached all legal protocol by playing what was essentially, a demo done, without completing an agreement for compensation. I did not authorize the party via contract, to play my song and they are infringing on my copyright,” said Joseph. He said all effort to amicably find common ground on the issue, has proven futile.

She’s seen a weed vending machine so far and she seems to have been pretty blown away by that. Nailah Blackman’s in Switzerland. The soca beauty is there for the Swiss Soca Festival, something that’s pretty huge for this fresh, young entertainer.

Blackman, who unleashed a new EP last month called ‘The Reel’, has been delivering consistently over the past two years. Vocal strength and a visually appealing package, makes her an artiste to watch in the Caribbean music industry- an artiste who, by all accounts, has the best potential to make it onto the international music circuit.

In a near emotional rant on her Instagram story, Blackman said she is extremely happy. “All my life I always wanted to travel and do music and I am here for the Soca Swiss Festival. This is just amazing to me!” she said, thanking God for the opportunity. “God is good,” she said.

Nailah told her fans that she had always wanted to visit Europe. She said a lot of the artistes she’d listened to growing up, were European. “The whole vibe, the whole gloomy vibe, it’s a definite vibe. It’s definitely an emotion that I felt a lot in my childhood and I get why people would’ve made songs like they made in this kind of weather- it’s sort of gloomy so it’s nice to have soca here… bring a different side, yuh know!”

Check out Nailah’s reaction to the Weed Vending machine find, in Switzerland.

Kes the band has been busy. An entire album is being released to fans of Soca and Calypso music this month. In an interview on RED96.7FM on Thursday, Kees Dieffenthaller- lead singer of the band, said the album, “We Home” would be dropping on August 28th. He also urged the people of Trinidad and Tobago to love up Calypso music.

The upcoming album is the band’s first live studio album and according to a social media post on the band’s page, it was born out of the present global situation. The COVID-19 pandemic, still a very present threat, Kees said the period has given many people the time to reconnect with loved ones, take things slow, recharge, innovate and be at home.

The album is described as one that delivers to fans, the energy that’s often shared by the band when they’re on stage. “We miss the energy we get from you when we’re on stage and wanted to share the vibes we feel when we’re performing. We hope this album captures that feeling and gives us all something to look forward to when we could jam once more. We can’t wait for you to hear it,” said the social media post. ⁠ ⁠ ⁠

Speaking toward the end of the radio interview on Thursday, Kees embraced the applause offered for the collaborative single done with Jimmy October- a single called, “Magic”. He took that opportunity to call on the people of Trinidad and Tobago to celebrate calypso music which, he reminded the world, many other genres were bred from.
