    Posted on February 16, 2016 at 12:00 am

    Singer Stevie Face plans to honour deejay Terror Fabulous with a special award for excellence in music next month. Stevie Face said despite his track record, Terror Fabulous has not got the respect he deserves. “He is a great artiste, look at all the hits he made in the ‘90s. Look at Billboard charting songs like Gangster and Action with Nadine Sutherland. He was right up there with the cream of the crop in dancehall music,” said Stevie Face. “Everyone experiences good times and bad times in life and Terror has been going through some issues over the last few years, but that doesn’t mean that he should be denied the love and respect of his peers.” The award will be presented to Terror Fabulous on March 26 during an event celebrating the second anniversary of Advanced Service Station, which is owned and operated by Stevie Face, in Albion, St Thomas. Terror Fabulous is also scheduled to perform at the gig along with Mr Lexx and Venjahnce. […]

    Posted by jbirch101 on January 25, 2016 at 2:31 am

    Priceless and elated! This is how Chutney artiste Kris “KI” Persad feels about being crowned Chutney Soca Monarch and capturing the million dollar first prize at Saturday’s show at Skinner Park, San Fernando. Performing last before hundreds of spectators, KI closed the show with an entertaining performance of Same Gyal Twice, which saw him dressed like a super hero and taking a shower on stage. Cupping first place in the traditional category was chutney artiste Rooplal Girdharie with 479 points, taking home the $150,000 prize.  In an interview yesterday, 29-year-old Persad, who attained 499 points, said he was happy that hard work by his team and himself paid off. Admitting that the competition this year was stronger, he said he kept positive and gave it his all. Persad who also won the competition in 2012 and 2014 said he was impressed by the performances this year and expects the art form to continue to grow stronger. Nishard Mayrhoo’s performance was also a strong contender for the crown but he was beaten into second place by nine points, taking home a prize of $750,000 for his rendition of Therapy.  Defending champions Ravi B (Ravi Bissambhar) and Rikki Jai (Samraj Jaimungal) who teamed up last year, came into third and fourth places respectively. Coming on stage in gold chariot, mimicking the Cinderella story, Ravi B went into the crowd with a beautiful shoe looking for Cinderella in her performance of his rendition Personal. In a Whats App message, Rikki Jai who won the title seven times said when one enters a competition, one has to abide with the results of the judges.  Jai who sang Leh We Fete, added: “My team did our best, will have to look back at the results to really comment on results. Congrats to all finalists and winners.” Southex director George Singh, in a release, said patrons took advantage of the free entry before 9 pm, offer which saw thousands of patrons lined up at the gates as early as 6 pm to witness the 21st show. “The Chutney Soca Monarch staged a magnificent comeback last night not only with the largest crowd in more than five years, but it made a comeback musically and lyrically with some of the strongest and best songs ever in the competition. Performances were also very grand, with some artistes coming on stage were accompanied by more than 50 dancers and performers.” Chutney Soca Monarch, he said, has always been the biggest stage and production for Indo-Caribbean culture in the world, and last night was no different.

  • Superwoman flies into Trinidad concert
    Posted by alexk on October 15, 2015 at 8:43 am

    An ambitious young brother/sister promotion team is sending teenagers across the country into a frenzy over the upcoming Superwoman concert.  Sareeta Bridgelal, 32 and her brother Randir own and operate Wunderlust Productions and on October 17, they will bring YouTube sensation Lilly Singh, better known as Superwoman, to perform at the Centre of Excellence in Macoya. Described as “the Tina Fey of Punjabis” in one article, Canadian Singh has an immense following of teens and young adults worldwide, with over six million subscribers to her YouTube channel. Her videos, which are mostly comedy with some motivational speaking, have been viewed close to a billion times. So there is no surprise that T&T youngsters are extremely excited about her impending visit. Many waited for hours in line for tickets that sold out within 40 minutes at each of the three outlets and the e-ticket website crashed several times because of the volume of requests.  In an interview with the T&T Guardian, Sareeta said despite being fans of Superwoman themselves, she and her brother never expected the response they have been getting from fans. “Nobody expected that kind of response, there were about 12,000 people trying to log in to the online ticket site the first time,” Sareeta said. “This is our first major show and we were blown away by the response.” She said for most event promoters, ticket sales usually trickle in and start to heat up immediately before the event takes place. “According our original plan, we were supposed to do two shows, catering for about 800 people in each one. Now, we are doing one show only and we have already sold 2,500 tickets, we are just awaiting approval to sell more.” Sareeta said Singh has agreed to do a meet and greet session with fans following her performance. “She requested that only 200 meet and greet tickets be sold though, as she does not want to be overwhelmed by fans at the event.” The concert will run for 90 minutes, during which Singh and her 14-member dance entourage will perform. Then, there is another 90 minutes allocated for the meet and greet. Speaking about an incident at Gulf City Mall just over a week ago when police were called in to control rowdy fans during ticket sales, Sareeta said, “We announced tickets would be there for a certain time, people were waiting from 12 o’clock in the day and we got into the location but it is a small store. Then a lot of people were cutting in the lines and there was some uproar over this, but there were not any fights.” Asked how Wunderlust plans to handle over-enthusiastic fans on the night of the concert, Sareeta said extra security measures have been put into place.  “We are hiring a lot of security and there will be ushers taking fans to their seats, we are trying our best to ensure the security of all Lilly’s fans.” With the show just a few days away, Sareeta is warning fans against falling prey to scalpers. “We have tried our best to regulate tickets, but there are many unscrupulous people, who are not only trying to sell tickets, but Lilly’s official merchandise as well. “We are advising people to buy from her website but not from these people, as there is no way to guarantee you are getting official merchandise.” Sareeta said there would also be merchandise on sale at the event. Tickets for the show range from $380 for meet and greet, $300 for VIP and $240 for general admission. […]
