Ode to the Curacao Woman

Deya & Julien reveal

Pictures by CURWIZ – Thayreck Martina & Davina Felida | Location: Jan Sofat

WILLEMSTAD – It’s been over three weeks that I married the man of my dreams. I’m still on cloud nine and am grateful to have found a life partner that compliments my best qualities. My prayers were answered in a wonderful and specific way that still baffles me. That’s how great our God is.

The preparations were nerve racking, but we look back at the roller-coaster ride with gratitude.  During Weddings, like funerals, you get to know your real friends and family.  In the end, we had an unforgettable day filled with love and laughter, surrounded by our loved ones.

As we were preparing for our reveal, I sent my husband a cheeky gift, in case he needed a final incentive to walk down the aisle. We did a spicy photo shoot to capture all my gorgeousness and document how I’m entering this marriage and how much work that entails. I believe that women are like delicate flowers that need careful tending. Give your woman abundant love, affection and attention and she will always feel like sexiest woman alive. It’s not that we need constant adulation to have high self-esteem, however a woman that is and feels loved always radiates. And that’s what keeps us feeling young and sexy and ON POINT. I always say, “Tin hòmber tin dede di pispis, tur muhé ku nan a mishi ku n’e a marchitá”. Some men just don’t have green thumbs, every woman they ever touched eventually withered.

Curaçao women are awesome and beautiful. Period. We are not too big, black, ghetto, loud, angry or need to be compared with others. We own our curves and tend to walk around like colorful peacocks. We are guilty of sometimes wanting to match even our hair color to our outfits.  We are hardworking and resourceful, raise our families and have held it down for generations. And we love our Krioyo men, who are good and responsible, compassionate, funny and seductively confident.

Some said, “finally’, when I announced our engagement, like finding a man is a life achievement, but believe me its’ not.  Our life goals should be to lead fulfilled lives that are permeated with joy and love, supported by an authentic sense of self, where hopefully we don’t lose ourselves in work, marriages or relationships.  Some women have an unbelievable ability to pick ‘project’ men and kiss so many frogs, in hopes one morphs into a prince one day. Ladies, its oke to put yourself first.  If the relationship is not working and you know you fought hard to make it work, let it go.

Frogs

Finding true love was journey of self-exploration and waiting for God’s best. It didn’t happen overnight and it took a village of praying women who stood with me through this process. Everybody that knows me, knows that I never compromised or settled. I always knew what I wanted in a man a kept looking for it till I found it. I didn’t make excuses and was very good at letting people go. Not because they were bad, but because they weren’t what God had intended for me.

And I almost missed my blessing by dippin’ and doing – in my Wendy Williams voice – running around and trying to fill that void. When I finally stood still and listened, I saw him. He was standing in front of me for two whole years and I didn’t see him. We almost broke a Kardashian record with our relationship, because we didn’t beat around the bush. Instead we talked, traveled and prayed together and truly had a whirlwind romance.

So yes, true love is possible at any age and size. Embrace that you are a BBW of skinny as a ‘pal’i lele’ (a stick).

No, it’s never too late and noooo there is nothing wrong with you.

Be the best version of yourself, work on YOU first and be open to receive God’s best. Misery loves company, so beware of broken people. They attract each other and have dysfunctional relationships.

Enjoy the pictures, my husband sure did!

DXBT – CURACAO’S NEXT URBAN AMBASSADORS

Cover mamasita

Willemstad – DXBT, the latest musical group to cause a sensation among its fans, released its latest single ‘Mamasita’, an urban ode to the Caribbean beauty. The three singers and rappers Bjorne Bregita, age 14, Denzel Gregg, age 16, and Xechell Jacobs, age 19, collaborated on this track with the popular rapper and label mate Jaido. Here the boys croon about her elusiveness and beauty and wonder if they will ever be able to capture her heart. 

During their live performances, DXBT is supported by 17-year-old, DJ Jay Sync nee Darwin A. Gregg, who makes sure that everything runs smoothly. According to Denzel, Darwin Jr. as the DJ, is the heart of the group, “because if he messes up, the entire performance can be affected”.  DXBT was signed in 2016 by Decoded, helmed by Efrem Mambi and Greyan Pastor, because they were looking for talent that the youth could relate to. “We want to remind them that they are young and should focus on positivity”, Mambi adds.

DXBT – Amnesia

Music is in their blood

All members of DXBT  have music running through their veins and descend from a few legendary musical greats. Xechell Jacobs is the son of legendary musician and founder of Magic Sound Xemio Jacobs. Bjorne Bregitta is the son of famed musician Cuco Bregitta and finally Denzel and Darwin Gregg are the sons of radio boss and entertainer Darwin Gregg. “We were exposed to music from the cradle, since our home was surrounded by it”, Darwin Jr. explains. “Our father is a perfectionist, and we definitely take after him”, Denzel adds. “If he thinks you sound off key, he will  stop you and tell you not to do it if you can’t do it right”, Darwin Jr. laughs.

Xechell was born in Bonaire, but moved to Curaçao at nine months old, also got expose to music early on. As a six year old, he was trusted on the national stage in 2006 with the remix of the popular ‘Chagaron’ song, featuring entertainer and dancer MuisjeMuis, which took him to Nickelodeon in the Netherlands for his first show.  Bjorne also acknowledges his father Cuco’s influence in the awakening of his musical passion. “I always asked him to let me sing because I loved it from a young age. We would always go to the matinee and the studio with him”, Bjorne recalls.

Pursuing their passions

DXBT started in 2016 in a recording studio where Efrem, Bjorne, Xechell and Denzel were chilling. “We working on a song called ‘Un chèns mi ke”. “We all write, however Xechell is the main writer of the group”, Denzel explains.

All DXBT members are committed to their passion for music and want to take it to the next level by creating as many hits as possible. Nevertheless, they all believe in having a solid educational foundation and are in the process of completing their high school equivalent diplomas. Xechell, being the oldest member, already completed his studies and after a short stint in the Netherlands last year, to study filmmaking at the Dutch Film Academy in Rotterdam, he quit and returned to Curaçao to fully focus on DXBT and his musical career.

Besides music, the boys are also talented athletes. Bjorne is also a gifted football player and Darwin and Denzel Gregg both play for the Sta. Maria Pirates, as a catcher and shortstop respectively, and secretly also dream about a career in professional baseball.

According to manager Efrem Mambi, the future of DBXT is bright since they are a growing faithful fans base both locally and in the Netherlands and are producing songs in several languages. “We chose to sell our music only on digital platforms because that’s the future of the industry, however we do have limited hard copies available”, he explains. DBXT is about to release a few more singles this year and in the fall they will release a 5-track EP. According to Mambi, they will have a busy summer and also plan to do a school tour with DJ Krokzz, which they will announce the exact dates on their social media platforms.

 

‘Mamsita’ and other singles of DBXT  are available on all the known music sharing platforms like Google Play, Spotify and iTunes. Also subscribe to Decoded on YouTube.
