Reigning Road March Champions, The Ultimate Rejects will be performing at the annual Army Fete on Friday, February 2 at the Queen’s Park Savannah. A spokesperson for “the safest fete in Carnival” said “the people’s champions” will “always have a place at Army Fete” in response to recent reports in the media of The Rejects having lackluster bookings thus far this season.

Following up on their 2017 smash hit, “Full Extreme”, which earned a record for the most played Road March winner ever in the history of the competition, the Ultimate Rejects released five songs between October and December 2017, with at least two of those releases receiving heavy airplay on radio stations and in the early fetes.

Two of these releases, namely: “Lightning Flash” and “Inside The Festival” have also been chosen by a number of steel bands (including the Reigning Panorama Champions, Massy Trinidad All Stars) as their selection for the upcoming Panorama competition. Last week, social media and radio talk shows made a topic of the matter of decreased bookings, as indicated by the Ultimate Rejects in a television interview with TV6 investigative journalist, Mark Bassant.

Having noticed the situation, Bassant questioned the trio on it, essentially getting lead vocalist, MX Prime to admit that bookings have been less than forthcoming. He said while the five tunes released this season have in fact been receiving tremendous airplay and positive reviews, all round, the Ultimate Rejects have been left out of many shows that they’d been booked for last year.

“You would think that promoters would want to have the group or the act that had such a tremendous impact on the population just ten months ago, but that doesn’t seem to be the case with some promoters. Management is relaying some conversations to us that are quite puzzling because we know that we made sure to produce and release great songs for the season and those songs have been getting airplay and positive reviews all around, but yet, we find ourselves being left out of many shows which we did last year.”

 

Asked whether their pricing and the country’s economic constraints could be at the heart of the problem, the group agreed that such could be the case, however they said they had spoken internally on this issue, and made adjustments to suit it, prior to the season. “We definitely took the economic state of the country into account when we began planning our season,” said, Joel “Iceman” Aming, “and we advised both our manager and booking agent to be accommodating to promoters. We don’t expect to be in all the fetes – that’s quite literally impossible – and we’re always busy making music, doing our monthly podcasts for our fans abroad and designing new merchandise and stuff like that, but when our fans start asking why, and observing that they have not been seeing us advertised for certain major events and then, we get excuses and reasons relayed to us that have nothing to do with pricing or availability or song quality or popularity, we have to sit up and take notice and really wonder if this is what winning the Road March title is really about…”

Barbados’ Rihanna Does 30 Right! Makes Huge Business Move Like Only She Would!

Published

Rihanna’s 30th birthday celebration included a big business move that could see the Barbados born Beaty rack up that dough, even while partying like the rockstar she is. Yesterday, even while celebrating the commencement of her “dirty thirties”, the Fenty brand creator released a new limited edition Fenty Beauty product- the Trophy Wife Highlighter. The super pigmented, metallic gold cream-to-powder was an instant hit when the brand debuted back in September 2017, according to Elle.com.

Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty Trophy Wife highlighter is available in a limited edition online.

The “Work” singer was certainly celebrated yesterday. A number of top tier celebs offered birthday shouts to Rih, among them ex-boyfriend, Chris Brown and DJ Khaled. Rihanna was pretty modest in her approach to the big 30th celebration however, posting via Instagram, an incredible “thank you” to her mother for her role in her life.

“10958 days ago @monica_fenty became a mother for the first time to her only daughter!” the singer wrote. “Today is just as much your birthday as it is mine! I love you mom!”

She also made sure to show her appreciation for the hard work and sacrifices that go into being a mom, writing, “Thank you for carrying me, birthing me, raising me, supporting me, teaching me, and loving me unconditionally! The woman I am today is because of everything that you are!”

“I thank God for perfectly hand picking you to be my mother when He sent my spirit to you! You are the greatest! Thank you!” 

RIHANNA

The Fenty Beauty Killawatt: Dirty Thirty highlighter ($34) now comes in a gold box that reads “Dirty Thirty” and the product pan is engraved with “XXX.” Currently, it’s only available on Fenty Beauty’s website.
