So started veteran soca act KMC Ken Marlon Charles when he sat for a virtual interview with the Kitcharee on Tuesday to talk about his life, music and future plans. During the late 90s and into the early 00s KMC was arguably the most in demand soca act on the Carnival circuit. About four days before the place lock down I reach home. I was spending most of my time outside in New York, in Yonkers, where I been producing a lot of music for American artistes and labels. So when I saw what was going on in America I say the best place to be is home. KMC said the global impact of Covid on lives and livelihoods has made him appreciate his blessings on a whole new level. Is nine years I was missing in action and that was not by choice, but by the weighty pressure I put on the music I was doing. KMC said he spent the first few months of the pandemic living, breathing, eating and sleeping music in a new studio he set up here in Trinidad.

He is dealing with the aftermath of a failed suicide while I spend my time trying to keep busy at home. I'd like to reiterate, though, that sheer physical exhaustion isn't as much of a problem for me as it might be for a med student or a doctor, so he might be deserving of the benefit of doubt if he doesn't keep in touch regularly. I'm blessed that he is well and doing so well in school. He has no vices, is the happiest person I know, is a healthy role model of manhood for my teen daughter and loves me to the depth of his soul. You should be fine as long as you stick to the lines you have laid out. I have a tendency to be overly sensative emotionally and the trauma of being forced to choose between someone I love and want to spend the rest of my with and Eternal Mormon Celestial Salvation caused me extensive emotional damage that I have struggled with ever since.
