Lights! Camera! Action! Machel Montano, soca don, entrepreneur, Trinidad and Tobago ambassador and now he can add actor to his repertoire.
Last Wednesday, Montano and his cast premiered Bazodee at Movie Town in the height of Trinidad and Tobago's Film Festival. The turnout was remarkable.
Bazodee is a mix between a Bollywood style, Caribbean musical and romance about being true and honest to yourself in love no matter what. The movie's music is from Montano's carnival hits collection and was filmed in the beautiful Trinidad and Tobago.
The Bazodee premiere landed Montano a mini-biography in Billboard's online newspaper. The piece titled "Meet Machel Montano: Soca Boss, Trinidadan Booster and.... Film Star?" was written by Patricia Meschino.
It outlines the prolific career of the star. It is indeed a great day for Montano to receive such an auspicious acknowledgment of such grandeur. Montano's music is accepted throughout the diaspora which may even lead to greater things, perhaps even a Grammy...?
