Trinidad and Tobago celebrates one of its own today. Olatunji Yearwood has added more value to the island of Soca, steel pan and Carnival than even he probably understands, and it all happened on Saturday in the UK when the former Groovy Soca Monarch King mounted the X Factor stage.

Dressed impeccably in a custom-tailored Ecliff Elie suit, the 32-year-old superstar in the making confidently expressed his desire to show the world the greatness of Calypso and Soca music. “I am here to represent Calypso and Soca music,” he said as he addressed X Factor judges, Simon Cowell, Robbie Williams, Ayda Field and Louie Tomlinson. Olatunji, referring to himself simply as Ola, immediately transformed the vibe, to say the least, bringing sudden smiles of excitement to the faces of audience members, some of whom seemed awash with pride, with our assumption that they’re of Caribbean descent.

Olatunji has been a part of the entertainment arena for 17 years. His parents, Eddie Yearwood and Mairoon Ali, both deceased, were stalwarts in Trinidad and Tobago’s rich cultural and entertainment landscape. His brother Rembunction, is also a performance artist. On stage on Saturday night, Ola said he writes his own music, something deserving of tremendous kudos.

Take a look at the young entertainer’s incredible debut to the X Factor stage. Be sure to keep that support for him strong in the coming weeks, after all, we all have a part to play in pushing Soca to see its full potential.

It may be the move to catapult the carnival industry to the very next level. There should be no doubt that the concept of the Caribbean carnival- the model initialised by Trinidad and Tobago, has extremely far reaching potential. With global festivals such as Coachella, OvO Fest, and Summerfest among others, drawing thousands to their venues, there’s no reason why a Caribbean carnival concept, should not be among the ‘Music Festival’ big wigs that the world talks about annually.

Tribe’s Dean Akin, together with Eventology’s Derrick Lewis and Caesar’s Army’s Jules Sobian with the help of Jamie Stewart of Commune Sports and Entertainment, are credited with conceptualising the CarniCon convention. This evening’s launch at the National Academy for the Performing Arts in Port-of-Spain will feature a Keynote and Masterclass by brand evangelist and world leading digital futurist, Bonin Bough who’ll enlighten the audience on how digital innovation can transform value streams and generate revenue for governments, Carnival stakeholders and brands.

According to the team, with Carnival being an integral part of Trinidad and Tobago’s culture and tourism product, the convention aims at establishing this country as the owner and leader in the practice, execution and business of Carnival to an attentive global audience of practitioners and enthusiasts in 2020.

Don’t be fooled by Patsy’s coy demeanour. She’s undoubtedly got that insatiable Caribbean fire burning inside. In the past two years, Patrice Roberts has left a mark on the Soca industry that few others have been able to challenge. Her packaged soca effect, which comes complete with glam, fashionable looks and good music, has amped up the competition on the soca scene, and nobody can deny that.

Patrice Roberts has been giving the world that subliminal sex appeal.

This past week, Roberts along with several other Caribbean entertainers made their presence felt on the Uber Soca Cruise. In several photos posted to social media, Roberts reminded us that she’s still in charge, delivering eye candy for her fans and leaving the naysayers dumbfounded, to say the least. One image posted earlier in the week was the topic of much chatter over whether the entertainer has been lightening her skin. Patrice has remained mum on that allegation. Despite the controversial passing comments from onlookers, the mom of one who has already released three new singles ahead of C2K20, including a single called, “Real Woman”, has maintained her appeal.

Patrice, Ricardo Drue and Nailah Blackman

With a banging body that has kept both men and women intrigued, Patrice Roberts is out the gate and certainly ready for the upcoming season. On Thursday, the entertainer was spotted posing with her child’s father, entertainer Ricardo Drue, and fellow sex siren, Nailah Blackman, aboard the Uber Soca Cruise. Patrice’s sexy physique was on display as was Nailah’s – both female artistes throwing out the goods for the world to know they’re both here to stir up the heat.
