Development of the VH1 “Icon of the Islands” series is underway and St. Maarten is part of the Islands music competition. The idea behind the show is to find unparalleled cream-of-the-crop talents and expose them on television, radio and the Internet.
The TV series promotes Caribbean islands, brands, products, beauty and culture as well as exposing homegrown talent and markets in the film, music and entertainment industries. Healthcare tycoon and new owner of Icon of the Islands Wes Mason and his wife Fredericka Ford Mason, co-owner of the TV series, held a business meeting at Sunset Beach Bar in St. Maarten on April 28 with executive producer of the show Pat Charles and Member of Parliament Rolando Brison, who invited the international guests to the island while working as Tourism Director. Filming of the series will begin soon.
