On this the one month anniversary of Tommy Lee Sparta’s disastrous appearance in Trinidad, the entertainment watchdogs on the island continue to lambaste the  new age Jamaican entertainer with harsh criticism, many saying his music should be completely banned on radio stations in T&T.

This morning, prominent radio presenter Third Bass, speaking on his urban programme, The Middlemen Morning Show, asked callers to identify music they felt should not be played on air. Well, that was nothing short of a condemnation attack on the Flankers native. For weeks since his departure from Trinidad on March 24, Tommy Lee’s name has been subjected to bouts of trashing on air and not to mention among members of the public who claim the artiste’s demonic lyrical outbursts could prove damaging for the youths who listen to his music.

DJ’s on some frequencies in Trinidad continue to play Tommy Lee’s songs however, claiming that it’s what the youths yearn to hear. For Third Bass and his DJ- The Ultimate DJ Shane, anything by Tommy Lee is a no-no. From early on Bass had indicated his disapproval of the artiste’s verbal appreciation for demonic elements, more so with his ‘Uncle Demon’ stage persona. Today,  his appreciation of the artiste’s persona and the music he releases, remains much the same as when Tommy Lee Sparta became a big name on the island.

The Jamaican dancehall entertainer meanwhile, blamed the crime situation in Trinidad and Tobago for the very small turnout at the Guaracarra Park venue on show night in a subsequent article relative to the show on March 31st. What do you think? Should Tommy Lee’s music be completely banned in Trinidad and Tobago and even in Jamaica and other places? Have your say in our poll below.

There’s a 26-year-old female attorney who hails from the fishing village of Charlotteville, Tobago, who, having recently achieved her lifelong goal of becoming an attorney at law, says she wants other young women to aspire for greatness.

Jose-Ann Hackett told EBUZZTT she’s wanted to be an attorney since she was just 5-years-old. Now attached to the law chambers of Ingrid Melville and Company in Tobago, Jose-Ann says it’s her personal desire to lead in the industry with integrity, honesty and wisdom “because while there may be many attorneys in our small society, there is always room for good, upstanding attorneys.”

Hackett along with her friend, Desiree Tommy were called to the BAR in December. Tommy is now an attorney at the firm of Hove and Associates Attorneys in Trinidad. She attended UWI, Mona and graduated with honours with a Bachelor of Law degree. She is the eldest of three while Hackett has one younger sibling.

“Be happy to see others win.” This was the expression of the young Trinidad based attorney as we questioned her on the advice she’d offer to other young females like herself. “Stay focused and consistent in pursuing your own goals and you will achieve your own success in time,” she encouraged. Tobago based Hackett told us she sees the profession as an opportunity to help those who are prejudiced, and bring justice for the voiceless. “I want young women to know that they should never allow stereotypical elements to define them. I am a testimony of persistence, determination and manifestation,” she said.

Desiree, who attended the Hugh Wooding Law School, obtaining a Legal Education Certificate before gaining work experience in Jamaica and St. Lucia, emphasised the need for young people to consistently work hard to achieve their goals, while engaging in activities that facilitate and enhance the learning and understanding of their desired professions. “If you happen to stumble or fall along the way, fix your crown and keep pushing,” she said.

Hopes for 2021

The young female attorneys hope to inspire others to follow their dreams and work hard toward it.

“My hope for 2021 is to be the change the society needs in whatever way I can effect change,” said Hackett. Her ambition is to continue working arduously to bring peace and justice for people who are prejudiced and helpless in their situations, within the confines of the law. “I want to make a mark in Trinidad and Tobago, in my own, unique way.”

Tommy says she strives to become the best version of herself possible. “As I continue to learn and grow in the legal profession, I will forever be humbled by the opportunity to vigorously defend and serve others. My hope is to be a role model to young women and a voice for the defenceless in the continued pursuit of justice.”

Nicki Minaj’s son is now three months old. On Saturday, fans of the entertainer finally got their first look at the baby boy, but still, there remains no confirmation of the child’s legal name, with Minaj simply referring to him as ‘Papa Bear’ in a caption that expressed her thanks to her bundle of joy for choosing her to be his mother.

The Trinidad and Tobago born rapper gave birth to her first baby with husband, Kenneth Petty, in September. Months prior, she had visited Trinidad and Tobago for Carnival 2019, but even while aboard their private flight to the festival, cryptic video posts suggested that Minaj may have already been expecting.

On Thursday, Nicki said becoming a mother to her son was the most fulfilling job she’s ever taken on. She also thanked her fans for their support, writing, “Thank you for your love & support throughout this journey. It’s meant so much to me.”
