By now you've all heard that Bunji Garlin celebrated a big birthday this past Tuesday in Trinidad. The hottest ticket in town was the artiste's birthday bash held at La Casa De Ibiza.
During the party, I saw the action on twitter as some of the party guest gave their play by play
After they party, Lil Bitts let me know how great it was...and made me feel a lil dry that I couldn't keep up with payments on my jet. I asked politely for a little review on what went down. And here it is....
On my arrival there were many cars around the club. When I arrived I received a band at the door which allowed me to have free premium drinks all night long. As I entered the venue was pure vibes from the get go. Bunji's manager was there, fellow artistes like: Ziggy Ranking, Squeazy Ranking, TC, Jason and Blaze (red 96.7), Dwayne Bravo (WI Cricketer), Cecile (Jamaican artiste), Benjai, Maximus Dan, Denise Belfon, his wife Fayann Lyons, Shal Mashall, Kernal Roberts, KMC, Benjai, Nadia Batson, Ms. Alysha, Mista Vybe, Super Blue and of course yours truly Lil Bitts. Ziggy, Cecile and Super Blue sang him their versions of Happy Birthday. Then the vibes was taken to another level when Super Blue began to perform. He did his trade mark move of manuvering the mic quickly from hand to hand and that sent the crowd into a frenzy. From there...he did his soca version to Billie Jean which went down great and had people calling for more and he started singing all of his oldies one after the other and totally destroyed the place.
Other artiste eventually ventured by freestyling Squeazy Ranking, Benjai, Ziggy and they also got Bunji into the action as well. Fayann was put on spot and she gave a small freestyle herself of which she executed very well. There was vibes in the party from beginning to end everybody had a great time.
One more thing lol!!...Denise Belfon presented him with his birthday cake, and they once again sang Happy Birthday for him !
If you don't know Lil Bitts, despite the fact that she's just 24, she's been in this game for a while now. As a child she competed in Trinidad's Junior Pan and Junior Calypso competitions, and has always done well. For her, music is a family affair. Her brother writes most of her songs for her, and her mother handles management and bookings, which leaves her free to focus on being a dynamo on stage. She strives to be an all-round entertainer. So when she's not singing Soca and R&B, you can catch her on Trinidadian TV on a program called Tech Wars.
This year, her song entitled "Hold Meh" survived Trini carnival to make an even greater impact overseas, with both the song and video rising to the #1 position on the Toronto-Lime.com charts.
Bitts, girl!! Thanks for the review...
Glad you had a wonderful time.
Love and Soca,
