I am proud to introduce issue number 5 of Dazzle Magazine. It has been a phenomenal journey creating rich and inspiring content over the past few months for our readers.
Before writing this note, I reverted to the past issues and was amazed to see the number of young entrepreneurs and professionals Dazzle Magazine has featured thus far. It is very admirable seeing those individuals creating opportunities for themselves in these hard economic times. It shows that the new generation has a lot to offer to society. I would like to applaud all of those whom we have featured for the great job they have done so far in their careers.
As with every issue, Dazzle Magazine’s mission is to encourage and recognise young talent island-wide and give them the opportunity to share their story, vision, products and services.
On the front cover we feature the lovely Mrs. Paula Theophilus who speaks to Dazzle Magazine about her origin, passion and the remarkable service she has been providing to Saint Lucia’s Carnival Queen Committee; Lance Arnold and Royston Taylors address the challenges and pleasures Just 4 Fun face as a carnival band; Neil Joseph, the proud owner of The Computer Store who is finding the roadmap to success; Wenhal “Alpha” Gerald, an artist whose goal is to have his music extend beyond Saint Lucia; Vincent McDoom tells Dazzle Magazine why Hot Couture was so important to him.
There are other interesting write-ups in this issue and it’s a great read, so please venture inside and let Dazzle Magazine captivate and amaze you.

I must say that every single time an issue is published, it always feels like my very first. The entire process of producing Dazzle can be so overwhelming that anxiety as well as excitement, both consume me!
In this issue, we further emphasise the musical and creative side of things to complement our island’s spotlight of the newly revamped Saint Lucia Jazz and Arts Festival. As we continue our inspirational journey, Dazzle continues to uncover fresh talent island wide along with those who are spreading their island roots into our global community. Gracing our cover is Saint Lucian rapper, Mr. Filbert ‘Kayo’Salton. We bring his musical journey to our readers – his origins, education, career and of course, his hustle and flow! Keeping with the musical theme, Mr. Johann ‘Yogi’ Deterville explained to Dazzle Magazine how much music is a part of his DNA. Continue reading
