Blaxx: Our Soca Super Hero
Dexter John Stewart the Artiste we all know as “Blaxx” left us on March 28th,2022. Blaxx , our Soca Super Hero who made us all “Feel Like Hulk” crossed over into Soca Heaven after a battle with Covid-19 in Trinidad. Sadly, Blaxx had been on a hugely successful run performing back to back nights in Trinidad at various shows during what would usually be their annual carnival season before lent. This Eastern Currency destination was one of the first islands Christopher Columbus set his eyes on in 1492, naming both islands. St. Christopher, named in his own honor and Nevis, Spanish for Nuestra Señoradelas Nieves which means Our Lady of the Snows because of what appeared to be snow on Nevis Peak. At least two other groups of indigenous people inhabited St.Kitts and Nevis, including the Arawak’s and the Kalinago people or Island Caribs’ prior to the arrival of the Spanish.

A celebration of cultures, fashion and music, Carnival is one of the most anticipated events of the year. It is the perfect opportunity to showcase your skillset and creativity and most importantly have fun. What better way to caption these moments than the use of still images and video recordings. After all, the adage says, A picture is worth a thousand words. This adage has been a key component in Cameron Hall’s drive to showcase his extraordinary talent. Cameron Hall, aka Kam King, grew up in the West London area between Ladbroke Grove and Shepherds Bush, known to many for being a quite shy and budding footballer.
