He’s not a big name artiste here at home in Trinidad but Lawless- the T&T entertainer who also does production out of his studio, Bing Bang Studios, says when his newly remixed track, ‘Bruk It Out’ which features, Jamaican dancehall act, Sheba, is played in Jamaica, it’s enjoyed and given the thumbs up. The track which was collaboratively produced by Bing Bang Studios, Mr. Spine’s Holy House Production and Versastyle Entertainment here in Trinidad, has been making the rounds in recent days. Lawless says he and Sheba are now moving to produce a video to accompany the track.

The new remixed single Bruk  It Out has been released in Trinidad.

Questioned on how the collaboration became, Lawless- the son of one of Trinidad and Tobago’s well known media practitioners, said it was pretty much a coincidental situation and timing really mattered. “One of my videographers was in Jamaica to shoot Sheba’s video and they were in the studio doing ‘Clothespin’,” he said, adding that while there, Sheba heard his single and told his videographer that she really liked it. He said they thought the artiste was Jamaican and was shocked to find out that it was a Trinidadian act. Later, Lawless said the connection was made and following social media interactions and a trip by Sheba to T&T sometime after, ‘Bruck It Out’ was remixed to a version that many have described as smoking hot.

Highlighting that the track in its remixed version was first released in Jamaica, Lawless said the support from the DJs over there has been good. Now, with promotion of the track in full swing, the young, budding entertainer is looking toward a promotional tour of the single with Sheba to a number of caribbean islands. This aspect of things won’t be too strange for him since he has already opened for acts such as Konshens, Popcaan and French Montana at Trinidad’s Club Sting. “My dream as an artiste is to reach my full potential. I dream of hearing my music on MTV and BET,” he said, adding that he believes in his abilities as both a producer and artiste, something he says he knows is key to progressing in any aspect of life.

A number of Trinidad and Tobago acts have done collaborations with popular dancehall artistes out of Jamaica, among them Kees, Machel Montano, Shurwayne Winchester, Ravi B and recently, Mr. Renzo who teamed up with Aidonia for the remix of his single, Bend Yuh Back.

Say what you want about Patrice Roberts, the Soca star’s been serving it in the past couple years and by the look of things, she’s only just getting started. Several major Carnival anthems to her credit this season, Roberts proved her ability to manage anything when she took the stage at UWI’s annual All Inclusive Fete on Sunday evening.

An incredible lineup of performers that included the likes of Kees, Iwer George, Swappi, Shurwayne Winchester, David Rudder, Ravi and Nisha B and three time Soca Monarch King, Voice, the fete in it’s 30th year, offered patrons the expected ambience and not to mention an awesome array of succulent Caribbean and international dishes. Bar service unparalleled, patrons basked in the wide Angostura cocktail selection and of course, delighted in the tastes of JP Chenet, Absolut Vodka cocktails and Mandria Sagria. Certainly one of the most attractive fete layouts that offered the perfect combination of lush atmospheric beauty and attractive fetters, the UWI All Inclusive Fete, aptly coined, ‘White Diamonds’, delivered elements of Caribbean flair in a way that promoted our people’s ability to enjoy the finer things in life, when so desired.

Delightful seafood too.

On stage, Shurwayne Winchester – an artiste with many titles to his name, worked the early part of the evening with the Rhapsody Next Generation Band. He thrilled with some of his classic hits and delivered his 2020 offerings, much to the delight of patrons. Other caribbean stars like David Rudder, Ravi and Nisha B, and Swappi would follow, however, it would be Patrice who’d impress, delivering a set that was nothing short of exceptional. The superstar female performer managed to make things work, this despite kicking off her stage show without the accompaniment of the sound system – the music having failed as she was just about ready to deliver. Patsy would make light of the situation, willing the crowd to tell her what she should sing.

Happily, Roberts worked the stage at UWI fete, pouring out the vocals she may have been holding in for some time. Performances like the one we experienced on Sunday, are very rare this time of season- many artistes often trying their best to save their voices for the long haul. With less than a month before Carnival Monday, fans of soca can certainly expect to see and experience Roberts in full performance mode as the season climaxes. She’ll be at the upcoming Army Fete at the Queen’s Park Savannah on February 14th. Now… there’s a place she’s guaranteed to bring the energy! Get ready. We’re almost certain it’ll be out of this world!

The rush by media outlets to be “first” is proving to be a problem. Even as investigators scrambled to the scene of the helicopter crash that claimed the lives of nine persons in Los Angeles on Sunday, US media outlet, TMZ had been informing the world that basketball star, and father of four, Kobe Bryant had been killed. The rush to be first is now being criticised, with several people in authority lamenting the fact that family members may not have been given the news just one hour after the incident had taken place. TMZ had however broken the story, sending the world into a state of shock.

TMZ’s Harvey Levin

The media outlet was criticised by Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who told reporters, “It would be extremely disrespectful to understand that your loved one … perished and you learn about it from TMZ.” He said TMZ had posted the story a little more than one hour after police said they received reports of a downed aircraft.

Los Angeles County Undersheriff Tim Murakami also criticised TMZ in a tweet. “I am saddened that I was gathering facts as a media outlet reported … Kobe had passed,” Murakami wrote. “I understand getting the scoop but please allow us time to make personal notifications to their loved ones. It’s very cold to hear of the loss via media. Breaks my heart.”

Kobe Bryant leaves to mourn, his wife Vanessa Bryant and three other daughters.

What are your thoughts? Do you think it was insensitive for TMZ to run with the report before ensuring family members had been notified or do you think it goes with the territory?

Was TMZ Wrong for Running the Story on Kobe's death before confirming the family Had been notified?
