The twin island republic of Trinidad and Tobago is home to some of the greatest people, creations and events in history. Home of Brian Lara, Hasley Crawford, Dwight York, Wendy Fitzwilliams, Kishorn Walcott, Nicki Minaj, Machel Montano and Bunji Garlin to name a few. Birthplace of the steelpan and home of the greatest show on earth-carnival, creators of calypso and soca music and of course in fine trini style we have entered the world of dancehall music and as expected we are pretty great at making that genre of music as well.
Big respect goes out to SeanB and BBC 1Xtra who hosted a Trinidad Cypher featuring some of Trinidad/Trinibad’s brilliant artistes which took place on the 27th of May 2021.
The artiste line up included Orlando Octave, Zerimar, KG, Medz Boss, Zebee, TriniBaddest Moe and Ashada.
The esteemed Orlando Octave has been on the music scene for a long time bringing us many of our loved soca songs. The Acting Single artiste continues to be a force to be reckoned with as he is not afraid to speak on the societal issues and the things that matter. We continue to see the growth and evolution of Orlando and we absolutely admire how he promotes love, unity and encourages the poor and underprivileged to rise up! We’re super proud and thank him for his representation of Trinidad and Tobago on this major platform.
What them know bout Arima man? I don’t know what they know, but I know that we know that Zerimar is super talented! Lyrically inclined! He can sing! and of course he is such an inspiration and hard worker. The Triple O Records owner continues to bring versatility to his music and continues to make waves both locally and internationally. He is definitely a profound representative of not only Trinidad and Tobago but also maintains big love and respect for his east side community. Big up Arima! We’re super proud and thank him for his representation of Trinidad and Tobago on this major platform.
One of Trinibad’s main men in the building, none other than the talented KG. KG has been representing Trinidad and Tobago and the overall movement in a big way! This multi talented individual has worked with and continues to work with some of the biggest names in Trinibad and is a boss entirely in his own right. The Reality Films owner and recipient of Best Upcoming/ Local Artist of 2020 award from the African Entertainment Awards USA (AEAUSA) has given us a high standard of quality and we expect nothing short of greatness from him! We’re super proud and thank him for his representation of Trinidad and Tobago on this major platform!
Of course there’s the chopper on board this host of amazing artistes. Medz Boss is a brilliant artiste out of the Ztekk Camp. His music and the effect it gives off can be summarized in one word and that word is VYBBZZ!!!! The Blood singer is undoubtedly one of the main faces of Trinibad and continues to bring us the hits! We’re super proud and thank him for his representation of Trinidad and Tobago on this major platform.
If you’re thinking of an artiste to bring a sweet melodic voice, an artiste who has the capability to switch up his lyrics, vybz and flow. An artiste who is a multi talented singer and songwriter and who can hypnotize you with his voice no matter how he changes it then Zebee is definitely the artiste on the top of that list. The Birth singer exceeds all expectations with his music as he continues to switch up his styles ensuring his fans are always in awe of his talent and creativity! We’re super proud and thank him for his representation of Trinidad and Tobago on this major platform.
Trinibaddest Mo knew exactly what she was talking about when she decided this was the best name for herself because sis is pureee firreee!! The stand firm singer continues to make waves and never hesitates to bring her diversity. If you listen to her music or watched any of her MO Mondays freestyles you already know I’m speaking nothing short of facts! Representing Trinidad ,Trinibad and Females in a big way overall, Mo never hesitates to showcase her talents whether it be freestyle or otherwise and we’re just in anticipation of all the greatness in store! We’re super proud and thank her for her representation of Trinidad and Tobago on this major platform.
We’re not sure if the thought process was the same as ours when including the lyrical Queen of the east Ashada to the line up of brilliance but we believe that since they had the king of the east side on board, it made more than enough sense to include the east side Queen. For a person with a sweet soulful voice, Ashada spitss pure fire when she sings and we’re here for all of it! The welcome to the east singer never hesitates to showcase the diversity, talent and creativity of not only Trinibad but of course the female population and it’s safe to confirm that the females in the industry such as Ashada are operating on a high and bad frequency! We’re super proud and thank her for her representation of Trinidad and Tobago on this major platform.
Just have a listen to this mix and let me know if you’re not mashing up the repeat button please!!! Make sure you all are following all these talented artistes!
Blessings! Big Up
