He never entered the carnival race for a title but by Carnival Monday night, the masses seemed to have confirmed that their Carnival God, MX Prime and his team of hard working music magicians would take home the year’s most coveted prize- the Road March title. By 1pm on Ash Wednesday, as many had been recuperating from the mas, the announcement came- The Ultimate Rejects’ ‘Full Extreme’ had been played some 556 times before the carnival judges.

It wasn’t so much that the song had beat back that of other contenders, but more so, the fact that a tune, that was atypical, something that pretty much leant to the less contemporary and the more traditional, had transcended generations, social class and production norms, to become the voice of the people. MX Prime, in weeks leading up to Carnival 2017 had remained his usual self. He went to work at the Boomchampions 94.1FM. He even hosted Prime Time with MX Prime for EBUZZTT.COM, telling us that he saw the need for this type of artiste promotion and was happy to be a part of it. Edghill Thomas had remained humble in every sense, to the very end of his run on Carnival Tuesday, even fulfilling his commitment to performing for masqueraders at the SocaDrome during the bacchanal.

Today, following the official announcement, Prime spoke with EBUZZTT. He said, today’s reality is a beautiful thing and thanked the people for the achievement. “It’s a beautiful thing for the Ultimate Rejects. We wanted to expand the brand to the carnival market, those who love soca and calypso and even those who may not have known about us and what we would be brining to the table. We are a DJ /Production group that specializes in all genres of music and our main focus is CDM – Caribbean Dance Music, so we had no high expectations where this was concerned,” he explained. Prime said this release of ‘Full Extreme’ was purely experimental but admitted that the song had taken on a life of its own. “We really have to thank the people who appreciated the difference – the fact remains, the song was approached in a really different way. We also want to thank the promoters who allowed us to deliver something different when we hit the stage each time. There was really nothing like what we did on stage, in carnival, before this year, and it really paid off in the end,” he said.

Still fueled by the energy of Carnival 2017, MX Prime and the Ultimate Rejects takes the stage at BAE Watch in West Trinidad, tonight. He told EBUZZTT that international bookings are rolling in strongly and the team will remain focused on pushing the UR brand a little further.

“The main goal was to get the people to know who the Ultimate Rejects are. We did that but the journey isn’t over.”- MX PRIME.

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.
