The Trinidad and Tobago Music Company Limited (MusicTT) has launched its annual open call for artistes and instrumentalists who are interested in being a part of cohort 5 of its Spotlight Programme. MusicTT’s Spotlight Programme seeks to identify artistes and instrumentalists who have the potential to advance in the music industry and equips them with the knowledge and tools to leverage their creative talent on the local and worldwide market.

An independent panel of industry professionals will collaborate with MusicTT to transparently select six (6) musical artistes to be a part of cohort 5 of the Spotlight Programme. The selected will then go through a series of workshops and training courses that will cater to their developmental needs including, but not limited to, vocal/ instrumental training, stage performance, brand and social media strategy, styling and EPK development.

Spotlight launched its very first intake in December 2017 with the selection of 10 artistes by international judges. To date, 3 cohorts totalling 27 artistes have successfully completed Spotlight. The current fourth cohort of 6 artistes is still undergoing training until their final Showcase. Spotlight artistes have successfully secured international performance opportunities, tours, album launches and sync opportunities. This year, the artistes of cohort 3 also released their first EP titled Project Spotlight. MusicTT, along with industry titans Darryl Gervais and Jhay C of HCL, one of Australia’s most successful Urban Pop producers/writers, produced the eight-track EP ‘Project Spotlight’ which is currently available to the public via various streaming platforms.

“We strongly encourage our local artistes and instrumentalists to register for this capacity-building, opportunity-creating and life-changing Spotlight Programme. MusicTT is committed to ensuring that our talented stakeholders get the assistance and support they need to take their craft to the next level. We are also committed to the continued advancement of our past and present Spotlight artistes and look forward to discovering what Trinidad and Tobago has to offer and sharing it with the world.” – Melissa Jimenez, General Manager, MusicTT.

Barbados’ gem, Rihanna will be gracing the 2024 Paris Olympics.

No. She isn’t on the relay team, nor is she participating in the shot put event, but she’s sure about to spice up the faces of the athletes who will.

On Thursday, the ‘Love on the Brain’ singer announced that she’d sealed a deal with the 2024 Paris Olympics. “Tried to tell y’all… we outside all 2024!!! PROUD to announce that @FentyBeauty is a premium partner of the Olympic AND Paralympic Games baby!!! #FentyxParis2024,” wrote the global superstar, beneath a photo post.

According to reports, the Fenty Beauty/ Paris Olympics deal is a multi-million dollar, first of its kind deal that will see Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty brand, provide the glam and beauty for those participating in the 2024 Olympics.

Rihanna recently unveiled her her Fenty Hair brand. The product reviews have been pretty good and it is likely that the boss mom will continue her upward trajectory in the business world.

According to a press release, Fenty Beauty will provide makeup kits and tutorials for 600 volunteers between the ages of 18 and 21 who will present medals at the games.

Both hard copy and digital, IslandLime Magazine’s on a mission. In the ever-expanding world that we now occupy, efforts continue to share the most authentic Caribbean energy, with everyone outside the Diaspora. It’s not a new idea but the man behind it has all the gumption it takes to make it make sense.

Simon Baptiste believes in the Caribbean potential.

Simon Baptiste says his team’s vision is to create a global platform that allows for the stories of Caribbean creators and creatives, to be shared with people around the world – people who are anxious to discover more about the heartbeat of the region. “Although we recognize the importance of what goes on within our region, there are also hundreds of tales – fiction and non fiction, being crafted by islanders in territories that stretch from North America ti Australia,” he said in a recent Ebuzztt chat. “It’s our job to reveal the players and the art.”

The magazine’s official launch took place on July 4th in Port- of- Spain, Trinidad and featured performances by Key DeVere and John G. In the aftermath of the launch, Simon issued a statement, thanking folks who came out in support. He explained that the rationale behind delivering the project now, lies in understanding that we – the Caribbean people, built nations. “A chain of over 700 islands, encompassing 1,063,000 square miles, has produced incomparable talent- people who have left and continue to leave an indelible mark on art, fashion, music, literature, entertainment, sports, science and technology,” he wrote. Baptiste praised his people, adding, “From Capitol Hill, to working spaces in Nairobi, to the offices of an advertising agency, Down Under, you’ll find someone who has island roots, and spreads the philosophy of what makes the Caribbean and its people so unbelievably spectacular.”
