The death of Trinidad and Tobago Calypso legend, The Mighty Shadow has left many in the cultural arena in a state of shock and inconsolable sadness. Former leader of the Roy Cape Band now turned The All Starz, Roy Cape, said he’d spoken with Shadow just last week, explaining that the ‘Dingolay’ singer had been in pretty good spirts. “He didn’t even know that I myself was sick when we chatted. He was an incredible artist and an even greater human being. I want to send my deepest condolences to his entire family. This is a really big loss for all of us,” said Cape.

The outpouring of love for the man many felt had a truly unique persona in the business of Calypso, has been incredible. Fellow Soca artiste, Dexter ‘Blaxx’ Stewart, who is one of the frontline vocalists of the All Starz Band, said he idolized Shadow, adding, “For me, Shadow was the model image of sound, trend and talent to always watch. I used to call him Uncle, he called me Nephew.”

Blaxx said  “Poverty Is Hell” was his favorite song from Shadow’s catalogue of music, explaining that the song was real, relevant  and a true classic. On Shadow’s  personality, Blaxx said the artiste loved ole talk, jokes and he loved being around the people that he cared about.

“He was a brilliant musician, and I want to send condolences to family, friends and the industry; he served his community, his culture, his country and the Caribbean well. Let’s give our artistes their flowers while they are here. He gave the best of himself to better our culture, and his music will live on forever.” – Blaxx

He’s always referred to himself as a champion. Now, former West Indies cricketer, Dwayne Bravo says he is the champion of the nation. His life story may be quite similar to many of Trinidad and Tobago’s young people, but what makes the cricket star turned artist, a pillar of powerful change is his forward thinking attitude.

Bravo released a new single on Monday. It would prove to be something quite timely, amid a spiralling crime situation in Trinidad and Tobago. The song, “Done De War”, expresses Bravo’s desire to see peace, unity and love in the land of his birth. Speaking on RED96.7FM, the entertainer said, ” This is a new song for me and it’s no secret what’s going on in T&T. This song isn’t only about the violence because there are all kinds of wars happening around us.”

Bravo suggested that there is animosity among DJs, athletes and even religious factions, even suggesting that there is war taking place even on social media.

“I want everybody to unite in Trinidad and Tobago. The time is now. The festive time is now and people are releasing a lot of different types of songs but I’ve chosen to use my platform to encourage positive change.”


On Monday, the superstar cricketer made his rounds to various urban radio stations, preaching this sentiment, urging Trinidad and Tobago’s people to do better for themselves, and for the generations to come.

Bravo visited the youths at Success Laventille Secondary School recently.

Explaining that he had embarked on a school tour recently, the Santa Cruz, Trinidad native said many children look up to him and he realised that with their appreciation of his music. “Most of the children know my songs word for word. This song is really calling on the nation, for everybody to unite as one,” he insisted.

In a social media post on the first day of his school tour, Bravo, having visited the children at the Success Laventille Secondary School said, “It felt so good.” His effort to draw attention to the harsh reality faced by many of these young people who reside in crime hot spots in Trinidad and Tobago, is certainly worthy of commendation.
