New movement aimed at positive expression
THOSE IN THE entertainment industry should look out for stiff competition. There is a new outlet for young people to express themselves.
The Endorsing Kingdom Culture Only (EKCO) NATION movement was launched yesterday at Ball Park Events and Entertainment Centre.
It is aimed at combating negative influences through radio, social media and entertainment events.
Team member Creig Freeman told NATION ONLINE the idea was only conceptualised in April.
Also behind the idea is local reggae-gospel artiste Arnal Gozzy Goslin and he said EKCO was for the “secular” as well.
The event was well supported by many young people and past Junior Monarch Asher Dynamo Murrell even popped in to perform his 2016 hit, Nice and Slow much to the liking of many present.
A witty Murrell during his set encouraged women to have patience with their natural hair and to abstain from Remy hair.
The master of ceremonies for the evening, Imran Richards, who is well known on the local gospel scene kept things running smoothly despite the initial technical glitches.
And from mere crowd response, the young in Barbados are hungry for wholesome entertainment. (MR)
