About James Bond,Vybz Kartel and Popcaan

I confess that I have been covering a lot of Soca-oriented topics in my articles this summer. It’s only because this is a period when Soca music and Caribbean Carnival festivals are in a rage all over North America. For lovers of Dancehall and Reggae there’s a lot goings-on, including news that Vybz Kartel is awaiting the verdict of his appeal and Popcaan’s new album, “Forever”, is considered to be one of the best dancehall projects released in the past few years. But before I get into the international reggae news, let me take this moment to congratulate someone who …

Highlight of this year’s celebration was Machel Montano, one of the biggest names in Soca in T&T performing for the first time in Point Fortin. And it caused a little bit of a sideshow when fellow artiste Blaxx threw shade at  Montano, by cussing him out and calling him the devil. So what is Borough Day? Point Fortin, which is near the southern tip of T&T, received …

Big People Ting was big

Thank You for making my b-day bash a success Some say only it’s only when you’re not around anymore that people will show or express their  appreciation for you.

This year my birthday actually fell on a Saturday so I …

Is Carifiesta and CCFA really blighted? More and more members of our community are voicing their opinions that both the Montreal Carnival (Carifiesta) and the CCFA that organizes it are blighted. You may consider ‘blight’ a problematic word that is originally about plant diseases but sad to say, this is how most people will describe our CCFA. Recent developments such as the increasing number of costume bands refusing to take part in this year’s parade, which falls on July 7, and the recent video posted on social media of the Montreal Carnival Vibration band president venting about the CCFA and …
