Overnight, a series of videos have been posted to platforms like TikTok and Instagram, showing LIVE recordings from Vibes with Voicey social media convos. The artistes have seemingly been at loggerheads for some time, with Trinidad Killa accusing Voice and his cohorts, Akeem 5.0 and others, of being disloyal.
Trinidad Killa came out earlier this week, decrying the promoters of events at the Tobago Carnival, being staged next week. He argued that as an entertainer with several songs, he has not been booked for even one event in Tobago’s carnival. On Friday morning, a LIVE conversation between Trinidad Killa, Orlando Octave and RKG, further pushed the argument with Killa saying the people from the ghetto continue to be treated unfairly. He said it was high time artistes spoke up, arguing that the politicians were not the ones who put the country on the map, but rather the artistes, sportsmen and women and others in culture, the arts and sport. “The government don’t see us as assets,” said Octave. He reminded the audience, “de oil running low and we have to find other ways of diversifying the economy,” he said. “If the government don’t see the importance of artistes as ambassadors for the country, we have a problem,” said Octave.
Voice meanwhile, lashed out at Trinidad Killa one day prior, saying he was biting the hand that fed him. He pulled recordings of an event in London this year where his management is said to have assisted Trinidad Killa by recording his live performance. Voice told his audience that Trinidad Killa had appeared at the venue for the show without his management or a DJ.
On Friday, Trinidad Killa accused Voice and his cohorts of “doing wicked things behind the scenes.”
“Ask Voice who running Tobago carnival,” said Trinidad Killa, insinuating that the three time Soca Monarch Champion knew more than he was telling.
The bacchanal is likely to continue as nothing has been settled openly by the artistes.
