Archived: “Why Would I Play Anything Else? Soca’s In My DNA”- Red Bull Thre3 Style Champ, Deejay Puffy

On Saturday night, in Santiago, Chile, Barbados super DJ, Deejay Puffy stole the global spotlight, after being chosen as the wild card at the Red Bull Thre3Style DJ competition. He went on to seal the deal, trumping other major competitors by delivering nothing short of a unique DJ set that was laced with rhythmic Soca beats, melodies and vibes that no other genre in the world, could compare to. He did it with Soca!

Prior to heading off to Chile for the competition, Deejay Puffy told fans, his move was in the name of CULTURE.

Puffy, in a post- win interview with EBUZZTT on Monday, said the feeling was on par with winning an Olympic medal in the 100 metre dash. “It’s monumental for not only myself but the Caribbean. It’s also monumental for the genre of Soca and I’m honored. It’s still somewhat surreal,” he said. He’d only moments before our chat, awaken and already his phone had been ringing off the hook.

The Bajan soundman whose name has somewhat become synonymous with the Bajan party and fete circuit, told EBUZZTT that  when he submitted his video to be a wild card in the competition, he was chosen for a reason. “I was unique. I played Soca. My career has grown as a result of Soca music and that’s a part of me. That’s my style. I’m not a Soca DJ but I play Soca- I play everything,” he said. Puffy said while he prefers to be labeled as a more versatile DJ, he could and would never deny the Caribbean genre that is innate to his existence. “Soca is always in my sets. I can play at a 100% Soca party if I had to. It’s in my blood. It’s in my DNA. I’m from the Caribbean, why would I come here- and this is what I asked myself, why would they give me the opportunity to be here and I try to be like anyone else,” he said thoughtfully.

The 25-year-old had been challenged by other globally recognized DJs- among them, wild-card entrant Trapment,  JFB from the UK, Australia’s, Beast Mode and You-Ki who repped for Japan. “So far, it’s still sinking in- it’s really still sinking in but I’m looking forward to carrying the torch as best as I can and this means so much to the Thre3Style culture as well because when you compare my style to the other winners in the previous years, it’s really different. I kinda took it back to pure party rockin’. I’m not as technical as the other guys, I’m not. I can be but you have to know your crowds and how to adjust and that’s what makes a great DJ- adaptability and the ability to read your crowd and I try to do that to the best of my ability.”

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.
