Ashanti twerking at Trinidad carnival is everything you didn’t know you needed to see.
The R&B icon was among several international celebrities who converged on Trinidad and Tobago last weekend for the 2019 Trinidad Carnival. We also saw Mya and Chilli putting on their costumes and hitting the road march. Still, it was Ashanti who took center stage and the below video will explains why. The 38-year-old singer also performed with Machel Montana at Machel Mondays where she expressed how much fun she had.
“I can’t even explain the amount of fun I had!!!!! One of the best experiences Ever!!! @machelmontano we havin a winin party!!!! Lmaooo thankuuuuuu for everything!!! Welcoming me & my family to the soca life & soca music!!! Trinidad Thanku soooooo much for showing me so much love!!! Truly humbled!!! Love yallll!” she wrote.
Ashanti says she has always been a huge fan of Soca Music, but has never experienced it on this level. “Working with this Legend has been an absolute honor.. Thank you Mach… for your spirit, your energy, your humbleness and love…you welcomed me and my team with open arms and we became Famalaylaylay! I have such a new found love and respect for Soca music and culture… I’ve always loved Soca music but to experience Carnival & Soca music on this level has been absolutely amazing… truly one of the best times & experiences of my life,” she wrote.
The former Murder Inc songstress is a huge fan of Caribbean music and culture.

There’s a lot of hating from outside the club with Ashanti’s whole carnival trip. From what I’ve seen she seemed to have had the time of her life and the people actually there seemed to have really enjoyed her. I saw a lot of snaps/pics with people being happy to see her.
