Tribe Ice Gets Great Turnout. Machel Montano Still Running Things.

Published

on

The carnival excitement is here. A short season means a rapid succession of fetes. Last weekend, on the heels of Scorch’s 1st Jam on New Year’s Day, EBUZZTT took on Tribe Ice at the Queen’s Park Savannah in Port-of-Spain and as was expected, the masses made good of the invitation to fete till dawn.

In typical Tribe fashion, the venue was well laid out. Performances from Skinny Fabulous, Shal Marshall, Marzville, Lyrikal, Erphaan Alves, Voice and Marge Blackman and Patrice Roberts thrilled most and those who weren’t impressed probably didn’t have enough of those Patron shots that were being passed around, to wet their palate. Just saying.

Patrice Roberts’ body is banging.

Now, Patrice Roberts, rocking a lilac colored pixie cut and showing off her sexy physique, which made us all stop and wonder for a minute, was definitely the show stopper. Her confidence has taken off and with what some are calling the Road March anthem in her back pocket, the young Soca mom killed it when she stepped on stage to belt out “Criminal Wine” with Lyrikal. He too had a pretty good set, and with Voice following a short time later, the crowd was given a great sense of what’s to come at fetes this season.

Erphaan Alves is having a phenomenal season. His song, “OverDue” is a crowd favorite.

Tribe’s events have always attracted the young and impressionable. The DJs have however, continuously proven that they have a pretty limited appreciation for the amazing cadre of soca artistes who, year after year, give the people so many powerful anthems to enjoy at fetes. This year, once again, the DJs couldn’t seem to cure themselves of the “Machelitis” they’ve been infected with for years. With a number of blockbuster 2018 anthems already being blazed on the urban airwaves, the DJs at Tribe Ice failed to effectively show the partying public that there are a smorgasbord of big tunes this season, including Road March champions, Ultimate Rejects’ “Vex”, “Whole Day” and “Inside De Festival,” and not forgetting new music from Destra Garcia who has give us a wicked Carnival hit in, “Gimme,” Ricardo Drue and Fay Ann Lyons’ collaboration on Drue’s Antigua Soca Monarch winning hit, “Another Level,” and even Shurwayne Winchester has a monster Road March contender in a track called, “Wi Carnival.”

The season is here. Shal Marshall, Patrice Roberts, Kees and Erphaan Alves are out the gates with tunes that have the public eating out of their hands, but once again, without the versatility of the DJ, a number of incredible soca anthems just won’t see the light of day.

Nicki released new music today.

It takes very little to spark interest on the Net. A few days ago, Cardi B’s pregnancy reveal sent news agencies globally, off the deep end. After that, Nicki Minaj paraded her sexy-self across the floor at the Los Angeles  Lakers vs. Houston Rockets game on Tuesday, leaving tongues dangling as she reemerged on the social scene. She’s been off the radar for a bit, laying low in anticipation of the release of her upcoming album. Before that however, the Trinidad and Tobago born rapper, released two new tracks today.

On Tuesday, Minaj pretty much channeled a dominatrix at the NBA game in LA, donning a black patent leather and fishnet ensemble, uniquely pulled together by a pair of spike-covered knife pumps from Balenciaga’s Spring 2018 collection. Minaj definitely scored points at the game for making a public appearance that would certainly be on everyone’s lips in the lead up to her double track release today. The singles, “Chun Li” and “Barbie Tingz,” will make up Minaj’s fourth full-length album. Her previously released album was 2014’s ‘The PinkPrint.’

Take a look at Nicki’s hot-gal ensemble and let us know whether you think she created the desired effect.

Jamaica Carnival Ends, Shenseea Keeps the Net LIT.

The Caribbean superstars came out in full force as Jamaica’s Carnival excitement climaxed on Sunday with road revelry quite similar to what’s experienced in Trinidad and Tobago and other parts of the world where carnival is a staple. Jamaican dancehall sensation, Shenseea however, kept the internet lit with videos and photos all giving the world a glimpse of the carnival euphoria, this time, on her island.

Shenseea was on fire yesterday, in Jamaica.

The dancehall beauty, who’s managed to steal the hearts of global audiences in less than five years, maintains her social media engagement like no other. That, we believe, is what may be the defining tool in this young artist’s powerful marketing and promotion strategy. In Jamaica yesterday, Shenseea partied like a true Caribbean fetter. She wore an amazing fuchsia feathered costume delivered by Xodus Carnival and rubbed shoulders with the likes of T&T’s Bunji Garlin and fellow Jamaican artist, Aidonia on the road.

Other Caribbean celebs like Aidonia and T&T’s Bunji Garlin were a part of the road revelry in Jamaica on Sunday.

A number of Trinidad and Tobago carnival thrills made their way over to JA this year, among them, JAM Nation- an event that draws thousands annually in T&T. Caesar’s Army was there again with their AMBush event as well. The Caribbean is undoubtedly proving to be the essence of global fun and excitement. From carnival revelry to cruises like Soca on the Seas that provide carnival entertainment and Caribbean cultural thrills on  board, there’s no denying that the Caribbean’s where it’s at!
