Mr. Machel Montano

Well everyone who has been reading this blog knows that I am a Montano fan. I even skip to the beat of Machel. Well On Friday I decided to go on a girl’s night to check out the living room, the new club in Arima. I was in the VIP and I left there to go into the general section just to get in front to see Mr. .Montano perform his two new chunes.

Patrice and Zan performed first, even thought I respect Patrice’s talent I just wanted to get to see my sugar boy..sugar boy. Anyways eventually Machel made his way unto the stage. I was there in front wining in all my glory as he sang one more time.. one last wine..

Machel stopped singing and started to insult this triniscene photographer a kind of “ strapped” built person,. The guy was there minding his own business doing his job and Machel stopped and said “U, yuh see U... u too big to be in front here.. yuh like ah bear”. I stoped wining immediately. The whole crowd laughed at him, I felt it for him and didn’t laugh,I was just very disgusted. That was just strike one.

The singer continued and by this time I was no longer enjoying his performance, he raised his shirt showing off his nipple ring and behaving real vulgar. Then some girl in the crowd shouted big up to the $ 70 patrons (general ) and then Machel said “big up to all the $70 dollar patrons , Trinidad have money and if anybody say they poor in this time , allyuh playing de arse” This one was where I drew the line and stopped enjoying myself totally, Is almost like this man is not living in Trinidad’s reality . The truth is that a lot of people’s skies have fallen due to the increase in food prices and prices in general . I myself have seen the effect of inflation.. I was so appauled I felt like leaving the club one time. Pronto!!.

Anyways needless to say I stayed for the third strike, the stage was only one step off the floor where the patrons were. Machel started to wining in front of this girl and motioned his crutch toward her mouth area.. WTF!!. The girl was a decent respectable soul and moved away.. Another girl jumped up and started to wine with her face to his crutch. Even though Machel had part to blame the second girl just had no respect for herself!

After Friday night Machel’s image was tainted in my book and I respect him for his ability associated with his music and also his ability to carry a crowd. I now like Machel alot less than I did before Friday night.

I don't pay attention to the man, it's his music. This is key!

Girl, I always say I like his MUSIC could care less for the person.And that is from personal experience/interactions with the individual.

That is an AWESOME photo you took, it captures everything in your post!

Well, my boy ain easy. That picture is wild. Yeah, I've heard lots and lots and lots of complaints about his sexual innuendos. One time I personally saw him hold de same water bottle close to his penis and squeeze it to make de water drip...ummmm a bit much....

If he could minus all dat slackness he would be totallllllly on point! Musical genius he is...absolutely....

Buh wah de.... Ah mean, I know Machel to get on, but dat???? I tell you, people are NEVER what they seem to be, particularly those in the spotlight. (Gone are the days when people were actually about what their music is about...)
Well, I guess his genius and his fans' antics had to get to his head sooner or later... I must say I am disappointed.

I'm grimacing a bit here. Before I read the post I was wondering what de hell he doing to the poor water bottle. What to say, what else you expect? I could only laugh at his antics yes everybody know he's a wild horse. He does pelt insults when he ready cause he don't care. He is 'the' one and only Machel Montano he could do what he wants *sarcasm*. I have no idea what the money talk is about. He was probably high.
Still love the wining and the music though. I can't be bothered with him otherwise.

is a shame, I must say.. i mean look at maximus dan.. he is a great performer and yet he has class to his being. Machel is really a disappointment, I must say.. I wonder if he would like his daugther to be treated the way he treats women. Ah tell yuh god doh sleep ..look at what happen to AConcept.

I am trying to separate his personaility from his music... i hope i get over it by carnival because he usually has the best songs on te road.. together with sherwayne.

The man have too much money so he ent know what going on deep down under or he maybe jus high as suggested above.

I know I setting up mehself to get reaaal abuse from u ladies on this but yuh know dat is what Machel is known for. Nobody could ever mistake him for a saint. Dat is why girls LOVE HIM and they does be in front de stage grabbing his crotch!!

u may have a point trinigee .When he does certain things women scream and jump around, or even overreact due to his presence. which acts like postive reinforcement.

Well Kevian, it doesn't surprise me to hear this....but it's good that you are able to show others snippets of his character that they may not have the opportunity of seeing themselves.

Kevian I luv machel music, but I already knew his personality & behaviour. I wish he was not like this cause his music is excellent. Leaves u to wonder why he came back home after he left Trinidad for that big contract.

That has always been the way Machel behaved. I am a fan of his music and the way he hypes a crowd but not of his attitude. I don't know why artistes feel that they have to insult patrons to get crowd response. And machel loves to wine up in women's faces but a show i went to last carnival a woman grabbed his groin and he insulted her by calling her a jammette. But thats what he wanted in the first place isnt it? he needs to respect people because without fans he would be nowhere...

yuh damn right with out his fans he would be no where.

But whatever became of the big contract in true!.

Blogger saucydiva said...

From what I heard the "big contract" went bust and he has to reimburse the money that was advanced to him.

Kevian, I see yuh starring on TS

ok, but why it buss though??, Saucy yuh well no meh!! i find that unfair since I eh know u.. but we will fix that soon. I eh like how ah look in da pic nah, but god is good...maybe it might fall off triniscene.

Blogger kevian said...

I does usually run away from triniscene but one of meh friends was determined to get us in that pic.. so dies how I end up there. That is also how I knew the guy he insulted was the triniscene photographer.

LOL, if you don't like your pic you can email/call triniscene and ask them to remove it :D

I have no idea why the albumns never materialised.

Keeping his bad ass rep alive I guess. When fans get tired of his act, it's bc they've matured & he has not.

But what about the "Trinidad have money and if anybody say they poor in this time, allyuh playing de arse" comment?

I have to laugh over the irony with your typo "crutch" bc actually, sounds like his crotch is his crutch.

LOl Kara, I really don't know what he meant by that .. because everything in shittin trinidad expensive.

Kevianne, what the ass wrong with you? Since when you are a choir girl? That is Machel and anyone that has seen him perform over the years knows thats how he behaves. I not saying its entirely appropriate but this is the act we have known and encouraged for years so why all of a sudden act as if he is a saint and his actions surprise you. A big stueeeeeeepsss to you for being so sensitive... its these irrespnsible women that allow him to indulge in this beahvior and he has becomed accustomed to this so its going to continue but at the end of the day we should not be looking to entertainers for moral direction.,..he is an entertainer just like rock stars and rappers they are their to entertain..not to be our heroes! We are grown sensible adults not groupies so we should allow know how separate reality from entertainment..if you dont like this form of entertainment then dont go to his shows simple.
machel would continue to send the crowds wild and women crazy even those who dont put their hand in his crotch.

Machel just have a celebrity inflated ego and feel he could do what he want when he want.Including treating ppl as he please.
I always say I am a big fan of Machel's music but not a fan of Machel. The way he does act like if you he have the power to drop every girl drawers does annoy the hell out of me. The day he make the mistake and come round me with he out of timin ways I could shit him up.No way in hell Machel could ever get any play from me.
Ironically I was in a party this week here and I see Machel in the dance. As per usual real groupies on he case. At a point a time this girl who he is rumoured to be dealing appeared while he was jamming a ting and she was visibly annoyed. I could not help but groan, I mean get real, who out here doh know Machel reputation and a girls man. Who in their right mind go feel that if they dealing Machel them is the only woman in he life?? Allyuh not listening to the song he sing or what?"One last wine"?? STEUPS.
Doh even start me on Machel new mini me Zan who yuh would swear have platinum records the way he conducting he self

Bwaa hah hah! This was a sweet post man. I see the curse of the Anonymous comments has spread. I love Machel's music but it gets tainted for me by his performance and his attitude. Nobody expecting him to be a moral guide, but there has to be a balance man. How come people like Maximus and Bunji could perform and tear up the place and not squeeze up they balls on stage? Btw, Maximus is a great artist and a hell of a man. He started off singing he slackness as Magga Dan (Gyul just request the long brown sausage, between they two slice a bread with cabbage) and became even more popular singing socially aware music. Hats off to him - that eh easy to do at all. Anybody else remember when Machel put the water hose in between his legs and get the girl to climb she man back and suck it for the first Alternative Concept concert? There will always be women eager to indulge in the slackness but that do mean we hafta support it.

P.S. Machel lost the contract for this same thing we talking about. Can't go into any details but is not just we who notice his "attitude" is a problem.

well me Machel is if not the best one of the best performers in the world but there is always a limit to everything, i second Kev thoughts on this situation. being with her that nite, i felt the same kinda disgust for some of those disrespectfull moves...and come on the guy how he mess up was promoting him in ah way cause he was from triniscene hint hint...Machel jus being Machel moves and hypes a crowd so some of those "bedroom" acts could stay off the stage. But u cant stop some of those girls from doin that cause some ppl jus have no respect for themselves..But Machel will always be Machel...hott, making money and we cant do anything bout that cause yuh knw this not making us stop paying pur $$$$ to c him
