The reigning king of soca music, Mr. Machel Montano continues to pave his way to infamy and grow his empire. Most recently, the calypso heavyweight opened an M Store at the Piarco International Airport in Trinidad. Details are still hush hush, but with some internet sleuthing we were able to find out that the new M Store will be launched on June 17th to specially invited guests and only then will the public be made aware of what merchandise can be purchased at the store.
In the meantime, Montano continues to do big things by helping out the community. At a local event, the T&T Health Minister, Dr. Fuad Khan, thanked the soca superstar for the generous contribution of $100,000 donated by his band, Xtatik Limited, to the Children’s Life Fund—a brainchild of the People’s Partnership Government. The charity was established in 2010 to provide life-saving medical treatment overseas to sick children.
It’s nice to know some of our favourite Caribbean artists, continue to help their local community. Stay tuned to the blog for more information on the launch of M Store.
