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.

Nadia Batson Recalls Shy Days. Artist Seals Big Endorsement Deal!

Nadia Batson may seem like a powerhouse soca performer these days, even captivating the business tycoons at telecoms company, Digicel this week, sealing a brand new endorsee deal, but she admits, it wasn’t always as we know it now.

Batson, speaking candidly on the subject of her personality earlier this week, during a chat with Jade Campbell and Akeem 5.0 on Boomchampions 94.1FM in Trinidad, said she was a very shy person when she entered the business, and for many years, could hardly build up the strength to position herself in the forefront of it all.

Nadia has honed her craft. For years, the singer and songwriter, band leader and overall creative, has stood erect for Soca music, delivering countless hits both for herself and others in the business. As a songwriter, she is prolific and when the time came, Batson also proved that she’s no pushover when it comes to entertaining crowds near and far.

Remembering her early years on stage with Kes the Band, Nadia told the radio personalities that she was extremely shy back then. She said having stepped toward the limelight now, to claim her space on the soca stage, she often finds it hard to believe that she has been able to do what she has. “Sometimes I look at how people react when I’m on stage now and I’m in shock,” she said, appearing genuinely grateful for what she’s come in to.

Batson is having a bumper carnival 2020 season in T&T already. She’s booked for all the major carnival fetes, including the upcoming Army Fete on Valentine’s night. Several incredible contributions to her credit this season, including, “Swing Fuh Me” “Kiss” “Fatt” and “Skinner Park”, she continues to show her power as one of Soca music’s top billing artistes of this era.

In case you missed it, soca star, Patrice Roberts was a guest this afternoon on urban radio station, Boomchampions 94.1FM. She had a nice one on one interview and vibes session with hosts, Kevin Baker, SupaHype, Showtime Selvon and DJ Keron who doubles up as Patrice’s official touring DJ. Thing is, the Patrice we heard this afternoon was so in charge of her interview that not even the tricky questions could scare her.

The soca hottie who’s been maturing into her own in the past couple years, has delivered a number of big soca anthems this season. Songs like ‘Real Woman’, ‘Carry On’, ‘Happy Carnival’, ‘ Is We’, ‘Wha Yuh Know’ with Calypso royalty, Lord Nelson and others, have given the mother of one a beautiful catalogue to entertain fans with this carnival. Roberts’ personal life however, has been a matter of much public inquisition. On air, as she comfortably interacted with the guys, the singer fired back pretty matter-of-factly when asked whether she is single. “Not really,” she remarked coyly. Pressed to comment, she deflected like a boss as her daughter’s father, Ricardo Drue’s name came up. She would only say “a family that prays together stays together.”

Roberts and Drue were photographed together with Nailah Blackman aboard the Uber Soca Cruise in 2019.

Patrice and Ricardo have been spotted at a number of carnival events together. The status of their relationship however remains a matter of public speculation as neither of them have said they’re officially in a relationship. The duo have however proven to be very present, as a pair, in the life of their blossoming beauty, Lily.

Patsy certainly has grown into a powerhouse artist and we anticipate that her season will be as exciting of a public display as the speculation over her romantic life has proven to be. The soca star hosts her second Carnival concert, ‘ Strength of A Woman’ at the Normandie hotel on
