I had the opportunity to catch up with Kes, Alison Hinds and Olatunji backstage. It was the best way to end a fantastic carnival season before the masqueraders hot the street for the parade.

The question remains, who will clinch the “Roadmarch title”(most popular soca played on the road), would it be Kes with Savannah Gras or, Machel, Bunji and Skinnyfabulous with “Famalaylay.” Time will tell.
In the mean time take a look at last night’s performance from Kes at Brian Lara’s party.
Qatar was everything and more. The ground staff at Qatar Airways made us wish we missed more flights😜. They were outstanding. Someone was waiting to greet us as we disembarked, to put everything in place, and ensure we did not feel dislocated.
I also made a friend. I call her “my Qatar friend”, who took us to the Souk or Souq, where they make the finest gold jewelry on the spot. We were able to have them “custom make” a piece of jewelry for us in one hour!
It was an unplanned trip to Qatar, but one we certainly would not forget . We missed a flight, made a friend, and discovered another culture, all in one day. I was also pleasantly surprised to see a billboard with one of our Caribbean track stars, Yohan Blake, plastered on Billboards around Qatar.

Take a look at a short video we made on our short stay in Qatar.
I grew up in the Caribbean and I took it for granted. My childhood years were spent in Trinidad and Tobago, #love👌🏾❤️, and my early adult years were spent in Jamaica 🇯🇲, where I found my love 😍. During those years I craved life in London and Paris. Fortunately for me, I have experienced it all and I can tell you with absolute certainty that Caribbean life is where exotic lives⛱.
Cheers to Caribbean Life. 🍾🥂

Don’t talk about our people, our music, our athletes and our cultures. We have given the world Bob Marley, Usain Bolt, Rihanna, Nikki Minaj, Cardi B, Winston Duke, and lots more. Out of many, we are truly one people. We live, love and laugh. Though some of them hate, love always win in the Caribbean. If one neighbor does not have food to eat, they can go by another neighbor or a friend. That’s how we live.
