Carnival 2018 is fast approaching and already the airwaves are filled with new releases from artistes in Trinidad and Tobago, around the region and the diaspora.
To get you familiar with these songs before the fete season begins in earnest on January 1, we are launching a new series called My Release, where artistes talk about their songs, their inspiration behind it and how it relates to their lives. We also get to hear their sweet voices as they get us familiar a cappella style.
In this instalment, Akil Borneo, known as 5 Star Akil talks to us about his big release for the season "With You".
