On Tuesday, professional radio DJ, Alicia D’ Duchess hosted another edition of the Vale Vibe Cooler Fete at the quaint Bayview location along the North Coast road, which leads to Maracas Bay. Last carnival EBUZTT attended the event for the first time and it was euphoric, to say the least. This year, the team once again delivered and patrons seemed incredibly satisfied by the end of the fete.

With the Vale Vibe Breakfast event carded to take place this Sunday, the prelude event, Vale Vibe Cooler Fete was certainly the perfect teaser for what’s likely to be expected on Sunday morning at the Breakfast event which takes place in the Santa Cruz valley. Last year, Jamaica’s sport superstar, the World’s Fastest man, Usain Bolt was

On Tuesday however, patrons feted in glee at Bayview, rocking relaxed clothing, flats and truly enjoying the Soca vibe delivered by DJs Private Ryan, Shot Master J, International DJ Stephen from the USA, Alicia D Duchess and Hans and Gonzo, along with performances by Alison Hinds, Shal Marshall who was called back to the stage by the crowd and the Boss, Neil Iwer George who, as usual, got into the crowd to jump with his fans. The ambience at Bayview added to the overall sweetness of the event, making Vale Vibe Cooler, which came complete with free corn soup and doubles, one of the most intimately exciting Carnival 2018 events attended by EBUZZTT.

We anticipate that this particular fete will only outgrow that venue in the years ahead. That’s just how well attended it was and definitely how good it was! See you next year.

The Bassman – The Mighty Shadow Passes On.

Another legend has left the earth. The Mighty Shadow, one of Trinidad and Tobago’s most unique calypsonians passed away at hospital this morning. He was 77 years old.

Word of his death has since spread like wildfire on social media as many send their condolences to family, friends and members of the cultural fraternity in Trinidad and Tobago.

Shadow was well admired for his unique style of vocal and stage execution. Always donning black, the veteran artist would wow crowds with simple theatrics and a bounce that many will forever know as “The Shadow”.

A former Road March King of Trinidad and Tobago, Winston Bailey contributed many carnival anthems during his career. In 1974 he had stolen the Road March race with a song called “Bassman” and in 2001 he did it again with “Stranger”. But beyond that, Shadow’s delivery of songs like “Poverty is Hell” spoke to the psyche of the nation’s people. EBUZZTT has learnt that the calypsonian was due to receive an honorary doctorate from the University of the West Indies this week. He is said to have died this morning at the Mt. Hope Hospital after suffering a stroke on Saturday.

One of Trinidad and Tobago’s most idolized soca artistes had been off radar for the past four days. Machel Montano has since re-emerged, having switched on his mobile phone and reconnected with the world. He says he had been on a four day retreat and had no access to his phone or any outside media. What he found upon reconnecting with social media was that his homeland of Trinidad and Tobago had suffered massive flooding and devastation.

Like many other entertainers, the Road March title holder immediately extended a message of hope to those who’ve been affected.

“This morning I was overwhelmed by the amount of messages of concern, prayer and well wishing. I was saddened to learn of the devastating floods that hit home in Trinidad and Tobago and my heart goes out to all those who are affected.”

The Siparia native who now resides in Los Angeles, explained that Trinidad and Tobago is a nation of great resilience and further saluted those who’ve helped during and in the aftermath of of the flooding. “Thank you for all the prayers and to all those who will continue to support the relief efforts,” he said on Instagram.
