Rehab 5 has been described as one of the
biggest and best parties to hit Tobago for the
The Hennessy VIP Deck for the event, which
was held at the Pigeon Point Heritage Park on
November 5, was sold out two days before the
event and the general section was flooded with
people from the front of the stage to the back of
Artistes for the night included Uncle Ellis, Akeem
'Preedy' Chance, Salty, S Carter, Bubbles, Kidd
Classic, Tobago's very own Adana, who opened
the performance with her new soca for 2016, and
the headline performer the Jamaican Alkaline.
Alkaline brought out a very diverse crowd at
the event. His dancehall music songs, such as
"After All" and "Block and Delete" and other hits,
had the crowd singing along to every note as he
did his signature dance on stage.
He was irresistible to the ladies, as those at the
front of the stage attempted to pull him off multiple
times. But his large entourage ensured there was
not a repeat of his last performance in Tobago
when he was indeed pulled off the stage.
Patrons, especially the females, said his per-
formance this year was probably one of his best
in Trinidad and Tobago. And when he had com-
pleted his time on stage the crowd chanted for
him to return.
As the sun rose, the Heritage Park was still full
of vibes but it was time to go home. The event
was hosted by Ultimate Marketing and Ace of
My girlfriend and I decided that we wanted to start having
children together. We have been trying for a year and a half now
but nothing has happened.
Last Tuesday I went into her handbag and found birth control
pills and I instantly felt sick to my stomach. I can t believe that
every month she has been crying when her periods come, acting
like she s depressed, and all this time she has been playing me
for a fool! We have been making plans, picking out names and
even joking about the personality that our child would have. Yet
she has been so deceitful and calculating the whole time! Would
you believe that we even prayed together for a child and asked
God to open her womb?
I haven t said anything to her as yet because right now the
anger that I feel towards her would cause me to get myself in
trouble. I can t eat and I can t sleep because every conversation
that we have had about children keeps playing over in my mind.
Every time she pretended to be upset that she wasn t yet pregnant,
I would hold her hand and tell her that we ll continue to try. I
usually run out and buy ice cream, take her to dinner to make
her feel better and to think that she was playing me is driving
I am thinking of proposing to her in front of all of her friends
and after she cries and jumps around with joy, break the news
to her that I just fooled her the way that she has been fooling
me. I want her to feel how I feel. I feel so many emotions right
now - hate, anger, betrayal and still I love her. What should I
do? Help a brother out.
Dear Broken Hearted.,
I am truly sorry for what has happened to you and acknowl-
edge the fact that your life has truly been changed forever. You
will never be the same person and I don't think that you will
ever view people the same again, but I urge you to reconsider
your course of action since two wrongs will not make this trav-
What your girlfriend did is inexcusable, but I sincerely believe
that she owes you an explanation. Confront her in a public place
so as to prevent the situation from escalating and let her know
what you discovered. Let her know how betrayed you feel and
give her a chance to explain.
If you choose to continue in being a couple I strongly suggest
that you delay starting a family since there seems to be underly-
ing issues, particularly in the areas of communication and trust.
Seek counselling together and work on the foundation of this
relationship before trying to build on it any further.
Should the decision be to go your separate ways still consider
counselling for yourself so that future relationships would not be
I sincerely wish you the best whatever you decide.
