PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad (LUCKY SON-OF-A-GUN) : T&T soldier, Jason St John, finds $100m in bank account...What would you do if you woke up one morning and found TT$100 million in your account?

PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad (Trinidad Express) – What would you do if you woke up one morning and found TT$100 million in your account?
That’s the reality facing Trinidad and Tobago Defence Force (TTDF) soldier Jason St John, who says he has no clue how the money ended up in his account.

St John, 34, said he got the surprise of his life on March 19, upon checking his account balance at the RBC Royal Bank ATM (automated teller machine) in Chaguanas.
The balance read ninety-nine million, nine hundred and ninety-nine thousand, nine hundred and ninety-nine dollars and ninety-nine cents (TT$99,999,999.99).
John said only the day before, his balance read zero on his account. He explained: “I had a TT$20,000 credit-card limit which I am trying to clear, and my RBC branch in Cha¬gua¬ramas suggested I take a loan to clear the amount owed while they held my salary from the previ¬ous month (February) until I got it sorted out, and as far as I knew, when I checked the account that day (March 18), there was a zero balance.”
He said to make sure his eyes were not deceiving him, on March 19, he checked his balance at not only the RBC Royal Bank ATM in Chaguanas but also at the Republic Bank, First Citizens and Scotiabank ATMs, all with the same result.
After a week elapsed, John visited an ATM in Chaguanas and then RBC Royal Bank, Independence Square, Port of Spain, yesterday, hoping the jackpot money would have gone away, presuming it might have been a glitch or bank error, but things became even more perplexing to him. The money was still sitting in his account.more

DANCEHALL artiste Mr Vegas has teamed up with hip- hop star Pitbull for a remix of his single My Jam.
The single is from Vegas' Euphoria album which was released last year.

"We wanted it to be a happy song and we needed an artiste to take us to another level, so we sent a copy of the track to Pitbull's team and they instantly jumped on the remix. He recorded his part and sent back to us in Jamaica and we did the rest," Vegas told Splash.
He has worked with the Miami-born Pitbull before. Culo, Pitbull's 2004 collaboration with rapper Lil Jon, samples Vegas' Pull Up.
Pitbull, whose parents are Cuban, has a massive following in the Latin market, one of the most lucrative in contemporary music.
"This is great, as he has propelled me to a level that I only dream about. Pitbull has a huge fan base," said Vegas.
The video for the single was shot two weeks ago in Atlanta.
Mr Vegas, whose given name is Clifford Smith, is no stranger to international collaborations. Standing in The Sun, his remix with Beyonce, will be featured on her upcoming album Platinum Edition.
He has also worked with Wyclef Jean and DMX and is featured on Snoop Lion's 2013 Grammy-nominated album, Reincarnated.
Last year, he collaborated with Jason Derulo on the dancehall remix for Talk Dirty.

Reid, who is actually a Class Four athlete, broke a 22-year-old high jump record of 1.98m set by his schoolmate Ryan Chambers in 1993, clearing the bar at 1.99m on his second attempt, sending the Calabar fans into a frenzy.
Vanderleer Palmer of St Jago was second with 1.81m ahead of Javair Hall of Herbert Morrison with 1.78m.
In the first final of the day, the Class One discus, Demar Gayle of Edwin Allen High won with a throw of 50.70m; Calabar's Warren Barrett was second with 49.95m. Petersfield High's Sanjae Lawrence was third with 49.65m ahead of KC's Rajindra Campbell with 49.48m.
Rasheeda Downer delivered the first gold for KC, capturing the Class Two shot put with 16.47m and relegating favourite Andre Chin of Calabar to second with 15.53m with his teammate Savion Burke third with 15.10. KC was fourth courtesy of Dohnarris Stewart.
Meanwhile, KC suffered a major setback when star athlete Jhevaughn Matherson pulled up 90 metres into the Class Two 200m semi-final two which was won by Calabar's Tyrek Wilson in 21.11 seconds.
But before that, the remarkable Christopher Taylor sizzled to 20.97 seconds in semi-final one setting the stage for a Calabar sweep. more

Double Vision Models: Meet the Pairs of Twins Who Are Revolutionizing African Fashion....Cipriana and Takenya Quann are currently the most in-vogue twins in the blogosphere. (PHOTOS)

Posted: 03/26/2015 5:09 pm EDT
Say goodbye to the Olsen twins-- and hello to these sibling pairs, who are bringing their own unique vision to the world of African-influenced fashion.
You may not know their names yet, but it won't be long until you do, because these young people are talented and creative. They are twins, of African descent, bloggers for the most part, and they are part of a group of "elite influencers" who are blazing a trail in fashion.
Twins have always fascinated most people -- and the Internet is no exception. Thanks to this inherent power, these twins have managed to make a name for themselves, acquiring incredible amounts of followers. Praised by acclaimed publishers such as Vogue and The Coveteur for some. Approached by brands such as Diesel, Adidas and And Other Stories for others. Collaborations continue raining down for these stylish doubles. However, we must not forget the point: these young people represent our generation. One that is proud of its cultural heritage, proud to be ebony, proud of their curly hair, proud of our style of clothes. Below are some very inspiring and inspired representatives of this "Afro-cosmopolitan" generation for you to discover and follow! 
The Quann sisters are American and live in New York. Cipriana is the co-founder of the celebrated lifestyle blog "Urban Bush Babes" which, among other topics, celebrates the beauty of natural hair. Takenya, aka TK Wonder, is an electronic music artist. Their sense of style and their outrageous beauty have seduced many, judging by the number of brands that are fighting over them. Between advertising campaigns for the Gap, And Other Stories (a subsidiary of H&M), and interviews for VogueThe New York Times, Refinery 29, as well as The Coveteur, I think we haven't heard the last of them. more
