ON THE SCENE: Highlights from Guardsman Games, ‘Marlin’ media mingle, King of the Dancehall premiere, and more

THE STARS OF THE SHOW: Sep. 11, Canada. The attractive leads in one of the most buzzed-about movies at this year’s Toronto International Festival (TIFF), actor-director Nick Cannon and his Jamaican leading lady Kimberly “Kimmy” Patterson share lens time at the King of the Dancehall premiere screening party, presented by Ciroc, inside the EFS Lounge in Toronto on the weekend. Costar Busta Rhymes and other crew members were also in attendance. Oscar winners Whoopi Goldberg and Louis Gossett Jr. also play pivotal roles in the movie. (Photo:

DREAM TEAM: Sep. 11, St. Andrew. Dobermans rule! The triumphant duo of David C. Henriques and Kia Williams pose with their trophies after coming out on top at the inaugural Guardsman Games (put on by the Guardsman Group) at Hope Zoo on the weekend. Henriques and Williams outperformed their rivals in a series of rigorous and physically grueling challenges to emerge victors. (Photo: Guardsman Group)

WORK MODE: Sep. 12, Kingston. Looking sharper than Agent 007 in a strong designer suit and shades, Usain Bolt walks in stride with CEO David Butler as he arrives at Digicel Headquarters, Downtown Kingston, to get acquainted with his new job as Chief Speed Officer (CSO). “I prefer a 9.58 to a 9-to-5,” the Olympic legend confessed, “but I think I can run with this.” (Photo: Digicel Jamaica)

ONCE BITTEN: Sep. 13, Kingston. Wray & Nephew’s Dominica Drive hotspot @twentythree was all abuzz on Tuesday evening, as the team behind the 2016 MoBay Marlin International Tournament hosted a media mingle that drew appearances from a who’s who of the corporate and social scenes, namely JPS’ Kelly Tomblin, Appleton’s Gary Dixon and man-about-town Kibwe McGann (above), who got a taste of something good as he sampled the hors’doeuvres that were on the house. (Photo: Skkan Media)

REFRESHER COURSE: Sep. 14, Kingston. Take a sip! A bottle of tropical-fruity iCool, one of Lasco’s most popular beverage brands on the market, holds the attention of PM Andrew Holness, who was getting the grand tour earlier this week, led by Lasco boss Lascelles Chin no less, at the company’s Liquid and Dry Blend facilities. Undoubtedly, Mr. Holness has the most fun job in the country. (Photo: Jamaica House)
