The one woman media powerhouse…. talk is cheap but good publicity is impacting!


The entertainment buzz is high in T&T for the week and weekend ahead as all roads lead to South Trinidad where Caribbean soca artiste, Bunji Garlin celebrates his birthday at the Sting Nightclub.

Among the slate of celebrities carded to perform are, Busy Signal, Beenie Man, Macka Diamond, Bad Gyal Ce’cile, Problem Child, Synergy TV’s Metro, the Danceaholix and not forgetting a line up of local artistes, that makes the cast seem bigger than life.

Fay Ann Lyons, wife of the entertainer who has thrilled audiences around the world throughout her career, will also perform for the masses- thousands of whom are expected to fill the La Romain based nightclub. Tickets are said to be going faster than expected and promoters are expecting an influx of eager party-goers on the night but warn that the venue will not be over-capacitated.

With such a line-up of Caribbean entertainers, who wouldn’t want to be at The Earthstrong of a Lyricist on July 17th? Simply put…there’s no where else to be on Saturday night, that’ll offer that kind of star power! All roads truly lead to South Trinidad for the celebration of the year!


A Kim Kardashian Type Required in T&T? June 17, 2010

Oh boy! This one’s a great one! Kim Kardashian’s name is the 3rd most searched keyword in the Yahoo search engine today!

In Trinidad an Tobago, our entertainment industry lacks a level of star power that would have the region and the international population yearning to learn about what they’re up to. While we have soca stars Machel Montano, Fay Ann Lyons and Bunji Garlin- they lack the wow factor that would bring people running to Yahoo to see just what’s new.

Kim Kardashian is no musician but she’s made herself a real brand by exploiting what she’s got which are good looks, a big butt, the lust of men ( remember the Ray J sex tape?)… a modeling career which has blossomed into so many other things.

In the Caribbean, the mindset of our celebrities is quite localised… What we need to always remember is that we must spend money to make money… Publicity is extremely important. The more news you make, the more popular you become and whether good or bad news…. publicity is publicity! —- so… TIP TO CARIBBEAN ENTERTAINERS **** Hire a good publicist today!

Celebrity status comes with hard work and Kim Kardashian knows this oh, too well. Publicity is key too!
