Scady Dot P - Editor of YO! Magazine

Kendell Eugene, better known as
Scady Dot P is the editor of the St.Lucian Youth Oriented Magazine, YO! Magazine.

YO! Magazine is available weekly in the weekend Voice Newspaper and was developed to curb the belief that young St.Lucians do not enjoy reading. It is targeted towards 14 - 35 year olds but now people older read the YO! Magazine (like my mommy!) According to Scady, "Yo! Magazine is like the fun teacher in a classroom!"

Scady Dot P got started with the Yo! Magazine after the then-Editor, Toni Nicholas asked if he would be interested in working with the magazine. "Naturally I said yes because ever since they started I wanted to be a part of it! We have really grown from when I started back in 2004. We have more content. When I started, the magazine only had 16 pages now it has 24 pages." says Scady.

Scady Dot P's greatest achievement was when he was made Editor, but is still working hard so he expects some more real soon.  His hope for Yo! Magazine is to continue to educate the young minds of St. Lucia and one day the Caribbean. "We have given young people in St. Lucia a reason to read and enjoy it so I would love to see that carry across to the other islands."

Scady Dot P also the on-air Radio Personality
Tune in to his show every Friday 4-6PM, Saturday 6-10AM & Sunday 10-3PM on Radio Caribbean International (RCI).  ScadyDot P has gained recognition for his work on radio, with the Yo! Magazine and also the constant parties he has hosted at various clubs as a Hype Man for Electrifying Sounds.

This 26 year old St.Lucian attended Carmen Rene Memorial and the George Charles Secondary. He was interested in Media and completed a Language and Communication course at the University of the West Indies (UWI). He has applied to the university's Communication Arts Programme and is awaiting a response.

How did he get the name?
"The name Scady Dot P really happened when I gave myself a name when we had a dance group while I was at George Charles Secondary school. Originally I wanted to be called Shaggy but that was taken so I just came up with Scady. After Jay Z came out with a shoe line call the S. Cater. I liked the whole “dot” thing for some reason so I just added it to the name. The “P” really has no meaning but many friends have given it their own meaning."

Best said, "I enjoy all my jobs, lol, I can’t decide which is my favourite!"
