Multitalented – Thoughts from Jamaica

Posted on April 10, 2018

Hosting events changes how you enjoy or experience an event forever. For me, it has developed an appreciation for the little things people put into planning their events - so much so that I became a fan of details. Charlie Blacks shouted Multi-talented in the start of his 2009 single, Rich this Year. Almost ten years ago, the anthem of my existence was sang by Charlie. I'm not exactly in a financial crisis as I am in an existential crisis. ...

Touchdown Jamaica

In Jamaica for the first time last year - I enjoyed my experience throughly. Honestly, once I can I think I will always go to Jamaica for Carnival! Does it compare to Trinidad Carnival Well, No, I won't even compare it. In Trinidad - Carnival is a national fever that takes over every bar, business place, village and town. In Trinidad we have street parades in simultaneously all over the country for two days. What is Jamaica Carnival First, ...

Inside the Festival

Posted on March 9, 2018

For me, this Carnival Season was probably the most special Carnival ever. In 2017, I restarted my event company eeempire.com and hosted my first ever Carnival Fete this season. In addition to my own personal ventures, two of my clients, Candy Coated Events and Kairi People added new events to their Carnival roster. This was compounded by this being the shortest season in a few years. Nevertheless, I survived - but barely. ...

Building an EEEmpire (1 of 4)

Posted on December 24, 2017

You know, everyone is all so focused on building one of these nowadays. My journey started just about ten years ago; when I worked as a Trinipulse.com intern. My responsibility was to write articles about contemporary issues but I was more focused on how social media was empowering event promoters. A few months prior I made a Facebook event for a friend's treasure queen cruise with good results. I decided to pioneer this movement and ...

Dangerous Discounts

Posted on October 3, 2017

About three years ago I started this website, as a place to house my talents and share them with the world.  For the majority of these years I've been in pursuit of a master's degree determined to learn and earn for myself and everyone around me. I've been haunted with business ideas ever since. I've spent most of my life understanding that what others interpret as 'weird' is the catalyst for an uncanny ability to generate complex ...

A Masquerader’s Rendition – Trinidad Carnival 2017

Posted on March 15, 2017

I think it is safe to say we paid more attention to the bumpers than our cameras. We're still not sure if this is a good thing or not. I guess you be the judge:  Carnival 2017 survived amidst an Island divided between those for and against the festivities. Rightfully so, as Carnival is central to our economic growth and diversification. (A song I sing daily on my facebook.) A collection of colors, creeds, races and nationalit...

Kings and Queens of Soca

Posted on January 31, 2017

"Ken this is probably the best song I have ever written" - the remark that really got my attention. In between the daily casual conversation between Nesta and I, the statement struck me. He played the song and it sounded like a distorted rhythm session with some humming over it. Noticing my lack of astonishment, Nesta explained this was version 1.0 and beneath the hums, real words will soon come. The underlying theme of this story is, to ...

Barefoot on the Beach

Posted on January 28, 2017

"I feel like they tricked us with the calypso. Like they injected straight in our blood. Now all we want in life is soca!" - GBM Listen, when Ajala Pilgrim sat in that classroom in Lok Jack and said Ken I think I need you to do the video for us at Barefoot on the Beach - I responded "ok nice". When I really thought in my head was, my my, Ajala doesn't even know how serious it is. Visual storytelling of a party -- on the beach? Our speciali...
