He said he knew, just after winning the Road March title in 2017 that the powers that be, whoever they are, would never again allow it to happen. MX Prime, the man respected most by who understand him best, for his unapologetic truths, has done what least would have expected. He has released yet another Carnival 2018 anthem, merely two weeks away from Carnival Monday.

MX Prime says this song and every other tune delivered, were not written for Road March glory. 

MX Prime and his Ultimate Rejects brothers on Monday morning said their new release, and even those delivered before, has absolutely nothing to do with the Carnival competitions. The group appeared on the Red HOT Morning show on RED96.7FM with Rachel Price, Richard Trumpet and TimTim, releasing a track called simply, “For The People.”

Last week, Price lashed out at radio DJs and a particular urban radio station, arguing that Machel Montano’s song, collaborated on with Super Blue, “Soca Kingdom”, had been getting an unfair advantage as a result of the number of times it was being played by DJs who she again pounced on this morning. The Road March champs however seem unfazed by the present state of Soca music affairs in Trinidad and Tobago. The Ultimate Rejects remained adamant that the music should be for the people and so, with that, they unleashed what could be their final contribution for the Carnival 2018 season.

Meanwhile, there was reiteration of the issue of “pay for play” on another urban frequency this evening. Artiste and radio personality, Smooth opened the trivial can of worms during his talk show- the Make Up Or Break Up Show. There was an admission that the situation is real, with two of the frequencies DJs admitting that they had been approached by artistes who wanted to pay them to play their music. They however said, the unethical option was not entertained.

Check out the brand new release, for the people, delivered earlier today by The Ultimate Rejects! Remember, UR will be at Army Fete this Friday at the Queen’s Park Savannah! Tickets are said to be going fast and organizers expect another blockbuster event with the likes of Machel Montano, Bunji Garlin and Asylum and Kees, set to perform.

She’s seen a weed vending machine so far and she seems to have been pretty blown away by that. Nailah Blackman’s in Switzerland. The soca beauty is there for the Swiss Soca Festival, something that’s pretty huge for this fresh, young entertainer.

Blackman, who unleashed a new EP last month called ‘The Reel’, has been delivering consistently over the past two years. Vocal strength and a visually appealing package, makes her an artiste to watch in the Caribbean music industry- an artiste who, by all accounts, has the best potential to make it onto the international music circuit.

Nailah in Switzerland.

In a near emotional rant on her Instagram story, Blackman said she is extremely happy. “All my life I always wanted to travel and do music and I am here for the Soca Swiss Festival. This is just amazing to me!” she said, thanking God for the opportunity. “God is good,” she said.

Nailah told her fans that she had always wanted to visit Europe. She said a lot of the artistes she’d listened to growing up, were European. “The whole vibe, the whole gloomy vibe, it’s a definite vibe. It’s definitely an emotion that I felt a lot in my childhood and I get why people would’ve made songs like they made in this kind of weather- it’s sort of gloomy so it’s nice to have soca here… bring a different side, yuh know!”

Check out Nailah’s reaction to the Weed Vending machine find, in Switzerland.

Kes the band has been busy. An entire album is being released to fans of Soca and Calypso music this month. In an interview on RED96.7FM on Thursday, Kees Dieffenthaller- lead singer of the band, said the album, “We Home” would be dropping on August 28th. He also urged the people of Trinidad and Tobago to love up Calypso music.

The upcoming album is the band’s first live studio album and according to a social media post on the band’s page, it was born out of the present global situation. The COVID-19 pandemic, still a very present threat, Kees said the period has given many people the time to reconnect with loved ones, take things slow, recharge, innovate and be at home.

The album is described as one that delivers to fans, the energy that’s often shared by the band when they’re on stage. “We miss the energy we get from you when we’re on stage and wanted to share the vibes we feel when we’re performing. We hope this album captures that feeling and gives us all something to look forward to when we could jam once more. We can’t wait for you to hear it,” said the social media post. ⁠ ⁠ ⁠

Speaking toward the end of the radio interview on Thursday, Kees embraced the applause offered for the collaborative single done with Jimmy October- a single called, “Magic”. He took that opportunity to call on the people of Trinidad and Tobago to celebrate calypso music which, he reminded the world, many other genres were bred from.
