Recently, Montano made a cameo appearance in Makamillion’s soon-to-be released video for the hot summer single, Till Morning. Machel make his presence felt – complete with his 3Zero rum!
Recently, Makamillion spoke with ETCETERABUZZ.COM and he revealed that Montano would be working closely with the Millionaire Family as time progressed. Efforts to reach Montano himself, proved futile however according to Makamillion, Montano showed up on the set of the video production and happily participated in the video shoot which took place two weekends ago.
Machel is currently in London. Now, in the past few weeks, talk surrounding the soca megastar in T&T amounted mostly to the controversial Olympic/ 50th Independence Anniversary album he received funding from government to create, however, in case you missed it, Montano currently has a video on MTV’s “ Just Added Videos” area of the website.
The video was posted on the website on July 25, you can share the video and comment as you wish; question is… could comments, tweets and general sharing equate to the video being placed on the MTV Video countdown? There’s only one way to find out!
And even with that going on, Montano only a few days ago released the remix of his 2012 hit single, Mr. Fete which is now called ‘Champion’. The song is dedicated to the Olympians of the Caribbean and features none other than dancehall superstar, Beenie Man.
Meanwhile prominent song writer Jason Shaft Bishop who has written for Machel Montano in the past is now venturing onto the club circuit.
Shaft launches Area 18, Sport Bar and Lounge in San Juan opposite the police station tomorrow.
He says the lounge will offer aspiring artistes a platform on which their music can be showcased.
The lounge promises to be unlike any other in the east / West corridor in that there will be gaming consoles installed throughout the lounge as well as i-pads for the enjoyment of patrons.
Shaft has been instrumental in creating lyrics for a number of local and foreign artistes. In 2012 he wrote Machel Montano’s “On The Avenue”, Farmer Nappy’s “Surrender”, and Nadia Batson’s “Making Up”
