Reid s part-time
acknowledged Reid s
past drug abuse, but
deserves a chance to
redeem themselves. It
is this thought which
is driving Gomez and
friends, soca stars
Salty and Akim 5.0 to
look after Reid s busi-
It is their goal to
see Reid reach as far
as his newfound fame
will take him, Gomez
"We recently got
his new Identification
card, a friend of mine
applied and got a
copy of his birth cer-
tificate, and now we
are going to help him set up a bank
account so he can manage his own
money whenever he has a gig."
When asked, "So he gets paid?"
Reid interjects, "Of course, but I
don t need much money in my hand
all the time. Just for the little things
I need, so they tell me we have to go
to the bank and I was waiting for the
ID and thing. Is just now I will have
bank book and thing. This is God,
you know, doing this for me," he said.
There were times during the inter-
view when Reid rambled and then
quickly reverted to his gap-toothed
smile and jovial manner.
"Oh yes, I used to use drugs and
the police took me a couple times,
but I clean now and feeling good
about myself," he said.
He said he had stopped abusing
drugs for quite a while. And while he
could not say how he became reha-
bilitated, Gomez said Reid was recent-
ly given a clean bill of health from
both doctors at St
Ann s Hospital and
All of these issues
had to be cleared up
as they were in the
process of obtaining
Reid s passport and
the necessary visas so
that he could benefit
from the same oppor-
tunities as Salty and
"This is not just
about here and done.
I know there are
those who are spec-
ulating that he would
be used for the Car-
nival and then they
would see him back
by KFC. That s not
so, not when you
looking at one of the
most popular man in
T&T," said Gomez,
shaking his head and
As for the detractors, Gomez said
while it bothered them, Reid appeared
Take for instance, Reid s recent
snapshots on FB posing in a pool with
a bevy of women in sexy swimwear
and the speculations about the ladies
Gomez sought to clear the air and
explained that they were in fact his
friends from New York invited over
to celebrate his 29th birthday at the
Hyatt Regency. Reid was invited and
the women just took the photo in fun.
"Oh yeah, that (a girlfriend) will
come, I just have to wait," Reid said
with a grin.
No one knows what life has in store,
but according to Gomez, Reid will
soon benefit from every opportunity
to tour alongside Salty and Akim 5.0.
"He is in demand right now, from
all over," said Gomez.
Reid s international fame came
when he opted to dance to Justin

Bieber s Sorry rather than the usual soca songs.
Gomez said the video went viral and many of the
comments on Reid s social media and Youtube
pages were from around the globe. Some comments,
he said, were not even in English. The video became
At the end of it all, Gomez said he wanted to
make Reid s family, particularly his sister Linda
proud of what her brother had become.
T&T and the rest of the world can certainly look
out for more of Reid s brand in the near future,
he assured. A grinning Reid, still sipping his tea,
then invited Guardian to have Sunday lunch with
him at his new home at Cascade, St Ann s.
• CORRECTION: Last week, in the first half of this two-part article on the
life of Ellis Reid aka Uncle Ellis, the reporter incorrectly wrote Salty's name
as Winston Smith, who is in fact Dillon Charles, and Akim "5 Star" Borneo,
when in fact it should have been Akeem "5.0" Newton. Guardian apologies
for any inconvenience caused.
