ON THE SCENE: PM Portia Simpson-Miller + Lisa Hanna + NoMaddz + Kevoy Burton + Billy Wilmot + Grace Silvera + Regina Beavers

MELLOW YELLOW: April 29, Kingston. Bringing a pop of brilliant colour (and more) to the table, Regina Beavers recently joined Lauren Dunn and the panel of TV's The Vibe to dish about modern-day relationships and a host of current happenings. The episode is set to air on CVM shortly.

ECO WARRIORS: May 5, St. Andrew. The talented brothers of roots band NoMaddz stepped out last Saturday for the enviro-conscious affair "Lions in The Garden," the second event under the five-concert Roots Garden banner, hosted at the Hope Gardens, devised to benefit several local charities.

TRUE COLOURS: May 5, Kingston. Joining hundreds of spectators at the National Stadium on Saturday for the 2012 Jamaica International Invitational athletic meet, youth and culture minister Lisa Hanna (centre) and LIME colleagues Garry Sinclair and Grace Silvera stood out in eye-popping hues.

BLACK MY STORY: May 5, Kingston. Music veterans Billy Wilmot of Mystic Revealers (left) and Rootz Underground's Stephen Newland were also among the vibrant acts that graced the stage last Saturday at the "Lions in The Garden" concert on the grounds of the Hope Gardens.

ACCESS GRANTED: April 28, Kingston. A beaming Kevoy Burton and a pair of gorgeous gals celebrate his huge win in the 2012 Heineken Inspire competition, which recently wrapped in Kingston. Burton (alongside his College Access colleagues) walked away with a quarter-of-a-million dollars after his clever short film was declared the winner in the film category.

HOW SHE MOVES: May 7, St. Andrew. PM Portia Simpson-Miller didn't hesitate to get in the groove with O'Neil Clayton of the Kingston Drummers at Monday's launch of Labour Day 2012 at Jamaica House. In her address, Simpson-Miller urged Jamaicans to create legacy projects this year that commemorate the nation's 50th anniversary of Independence. This year's Labour Day theme is "Step forward...Make Jamaica Beautiful."
