Entertainment: Machel, Bunji give advice to young upcoming artistes

Soca artistes Machel Montano and Bunji Garlin are advising young people to never be afraid to step out and live their dreams in the entertainment industry.

And if there were any questions about whether or not the unity the two artistes displayed during Trinidad and Tobago's 2017 Carnival, they continue to show their comradery as they prepare to perform together in The Bahamas on the weekend.

Machel and Bunji are listed to perform at the Bahamas Junkanoo Carnival fete on Friday night, which is a precursor to the street parade.
