DJ Romie Rome and Chinee

On Tuesday night, RED96.7FM radio personality, Chinee, stepped outside the box, as he almost always does. The urban, youth-marketed frequency, like others of its type, plays predominantly new music, much of which proliferate negative lifestyles, however, on Tuesday night, Chinee and DJ Romie Rome dug deep, searching the crate and pulling out the conscious vibe of Sizzla Kalonji and others like him. “Put books in day bag nah boy, not guns,” he pleaded, referencing the backlash being felt in light of the poor guidance being meted out to T&T’s young and impressionable. In a quick chat with EBUZZTT, Chinee said, “I say these things because I was one of those children. My words are my smoking gun now. This place needs some help and change. I will always stick in my mouth.”

Bass- Boomchapions 94.1FM

On Wednesday morning, on another urban frequency, Boomchampions 94.1FM, radio personality and soca artist, Bass continued the topic, speaking about the impact of drugs on a 16-year-old he referred to as ‘pepper boy’ who’d shot into the spotlight two years ago. He had been video recorded selling peppers in Santa Cruz, and was questioned by an onlooker about his enterprise at the time. He was subsequently interviewed by Bass at the radio station, essentially telling of his positive effort to earn. Fast forward to Tuesday when news emerged that the boy had escaped police custody. Newspaper reports suggested that he is on drugs and had threatened to kill his mother and sisters. Bass pleaded with the public to assist in getting the boy back on track and asked for solutions to the spiraling drug and crime situation in T&T.

RKG’s new single, like that of Jaron Nurse and so many previously released tracks by so many positive artistes, is but a drop in the bucket, considering the magnitude of the problem in T&T. “The mission with this song in particular is to get people in authority to endorse the campaign, ‘Flatline’ #nowarzone- let’s do a campaign. Crime is something we can’t stop, but we have to reduce it. We have to find ways and means to reduce it,” he said. The single, out now, cleverly masks the positive message in melodies that are typically associated with music by artistes like dancehall’s Vybz Kartel, Alkaline and Popcaan.

Mark Myrie, the Jamaican reggae and dancehall giant the world knows best as Buju Banton, has been enjoying his freedom. He was released from US prison, having served a 9-year sentence, in December 2018 and since that time, the artiste’s spirit has been nothing short of triumphant.

On Monday night at the AC Hotel by the Marriott in New Kingston, Jamaica, the artiste celebrated his 45th birthday. He made a grand entry, showing gratitude with hearty smiles at the event which would mark his first official birthday celebration post release. Like fine wine, Buju assented to his 45th birth milestone and even with his simple and humble ways, fans of the artiste could tell that the best was yet to come.

The all white affair saw a number of well known Jamaican friends of the artiste in attendance, among them Sean Paul, Jamaica Deejay and personality Jabba and Romain Virgo. Buju’s Long Walk to Freedom Tour has seen him take stages around the Caribbean including Trinidad and a Tobago and Guyana shows hosted by High a Frequency Entertainment. Most recently, Buju crossed international waters, taking the stage in Amsterdam. His presence on stage, each time, has been nothing short of momentous, and some may say, near spiritual. At his Birthday “get together” on Monday, prior to engaging in chit chat with his friends and family, Buju prayed. It would be a symbol of his gratitude and love to the Most high God for all that he has gotten him through.
