Tobagonians will take to the streets to parade on Carnival Monday and Tuesday too.

Tobago, the smaller of the twin Island Republic that hosts the the World’s Greatest Show on Earth, has itself launched its carnival 2018 season. Last Friday, the launch took place in the capital Scarborough.

Over the years, Tobago has produced a few awesome Carnival contributors, among them, Shurwayne Winchester, Princess Adanna and of course, the Queen herself, Calypso Rose. Tobago has reportedly received $7 million TTD for funding their carnival festival, which is expected to be much the same as Trinidad’s in terms of cultural expression, but certainly on a smaller scale, to the massive parade and feting excitement that’s enjoyed for weeks on the large island.

Shurwayne Winchester’s Celebrate is in the Road March race.

Meanwhile, Tobago’s golden boy of Soca, Shurwayne Winchester remains upbeat and positive heading into the climatic days of Carnival 2018. His hit single, “Celebrate”, a track that calls on everyone to celebrate their life, no matter their circumstance, is receiving tremendous love across the airwaves.

The artiste, who has for years, delivered hits that range from Power Soca contenders, to Road March anthems and Groovy Soca melodies, remains a force in the industry, despite what people may think. Winchester, prior to Trinidad and Tobago’s Carnival commencement, enjoyed bookings in various territories overseas, including Toronto, Miami and even Las Vegas.

This past weekend, he performed at J’ouvert Splash in Arima, iUp in Chaguaramas among other events.

US based, internationally acclaimed reggae artist, Shaggy has called on the US Embassy in Jamaica, the US Ambassador to the country and the country’s Prime Minister, Andrew Holness, to do what is necessary to aid in ensuring that both Bounty Killa and Beenie Man are able to acquire US Visas.

Beenie Man and Bounty Killa both had their US VISAS revoked in 2010. At that time, Mavado and Aidonia were also among the dancehall artistes who’s US Visas were taken away by the US Embassy.
