Soca’s favourite winer boy, sorry Machel, has entered the soca arena. We featured the song before on this blog, but yesterday, as a present for the Carnival babies, the video was released on YouTube.
A few years ago, Uncle Ellis was a Port of Spain sensation for dancing in front of KFC Independence Square to the music from the CD vendors. Videos of him went Trini viral and a career was born.
He seems to have a good management team, who’re actually seeing about his welfare. If I’m not mistaken, Uncle Ellis now has a BMobile contract as a sponsor.
I like the video. He makes reference to his life before infamy. His treatment on the streets and his subtle critique of our casual and not so casual violence to the downtrodden.
Plus, the damn song is catchy.
