“Music is a big passion of mine and is a big part of our culture in Trinidad and Tobago and so I have pursued a career in it separate from cricket,” says Bravo.
During the Covid-19 quarantine period, Bravo utilized the time to spend quality time with his kids, which he really enjoys because he never gets this much free time at home; not in over 15yrs. He also used the free time to do some more charity work in his country, not limited to cash donations but physically helping those in need. At present, Bravo is working on a massive production. “Without saying too much too soon; I’m currently building an A class facility where the best artiste from all over the world can visit to record music and perhaps open avenues for young upcoming artistes,” says Bravo. It’s also no secret that he is happy to be back playing for WI again after his retirement of 4yrs. He is truly looking forward to this experience and in the meantime, he is mentally preparing himself for it. Bravo states “I cannot forget my TKR fans. Looking forward to representing the TKR family in 2020 and winning another title as I did 3 times as captain.”
