Caesar's Army made their debut as a full Carnival band with ROGUE, promising to deliver an alternative concept to mas with a four-part all-inclusive pump. Unlike most bands that usually meet up first thing in the morning on Carnival Monday and Tuesday, ROGUE pushed back their meet up times to 9 AM and 12 PM, respectively. On Carnival Monday, the pump continued into the night with 'Light Up The Rogue' and on Tuesday with Las Lap. Masqueraders seemed to be very satisfied Caesar's Army's new band, and it's safe to say ROGUECarnival has solidified its place on the Carnival scene.

Shaka Hislopis the face of a new campaign forthe world's leading Scotch whisky brand Johnnie Walker. The former Soca Warriors Goalie and current ESPN sportscasterwas chosen to be the face of Johnnie Walker's new local campaign “Keep Walking Trinidad and Tobago”. “We asked Shaka to be the ambassador for this campaign as we believe he truly portrays the message that ‘Keep Walking’ brings. As the country navigates tough times, we hope that Trinbagonians will be inspired to unite and push forward to achieve the vision of greatness they all share for the country”, said Ignacio Bordigoni, Regional Brand Manager of Johnnie Walker for Trinidad and Tobago. As a former international football player, Hislop has been representing Trinidad and Tobago on the world stage for almost 30 years. “For me, the opportunity to partner with such an iconic brand as Johnnie Walker has been a privilege, especially to deliver such a powerful and inspirational message to all of Trinidad and Tobago. “Keep Walking Trinidad and Tobago” is a message crafted and fully produced by our own local talent, challenging our struggles, highlighting our talents and unifying our strengths, and it has been a proud and inspiring moment for me to be a part of it," saidHislop. “The ‘Keep Walking’ message has become more than a part of Johnnie Walker’s philosophy; it is a part of the brand’s DNA. As the long-standing, number one choice amongst scotch consumers in Trinidad, Johnnie Walker has developed a strong connection with the people of our country, and through that, an understanding how our nation’s history aligns with its own story - and it is that story of progress that we tried to bring to life through the “Keep Walking Trinidad and Tobago” campaign. A reminder that no matter how difficult things may seem, that if we work together we can overcome any challenge, said Dominic Lau, Marketing Manager of A.S.Bryden & Sons Ltd., local distributor of the brand in the country. The campaign launched for television on February 10with further rollouts to continue over the coming weeks. It joins several deliveries of the brand in other markets throughout the region, where under its recognised mantra, hasinvited countries like the United States, the Dominican Republic, Colombia and Mexico to Keep Walking.

Trinbagonians didn't hold backon the African fashion for the screenings of the Black Panther movie at Movie Towne and Digicel IMAX. Just like black audiences have been doing all over the world, many in T&T donned African prints and African-inspired fashion, to show their solidarity for the movie which features an almost all-black cast. The Marvel movie, while set in the fictitious African country of Wakanda, pays homage to the people of Africa through the costumes and languages of the characters. Patrons including notable names such as Nikki Crosby, Fay-Ann Lyons, Bunji Garlin, and youth ambassador Nikoli Edwards were among those who were spotted at the movie dressed to impress. Cosby even repurposedher Lost Tribe costumes from 2017 and 2018 to make a statement. We compiled a few of our favourite looks. [image_gallery]
