Swappi Gets ‘Litty’ At Soka In Moka.

It was the week starter we needed. Above all else Soka In Moka brought out the Soca stars. Swappi was extraordinary at the Trinity College all inclusive fete and he even managed to get the respect of All Starz front line man, Blaxx. Check out what you may have missed:

Fay Ann Tells Media Houses, Get It Right Or Shut Up.

Fay Ann Lyons isn’t tolerating inaccurate reporting.

Fay Ann Lyons is the new Chairman of the International Soca Monarch competition. On the heels of her appointment has come much scrutiny and even talk of nepotism regarding how she was afforded the position. She clearly isn’t bothered however, and is making it clear to all and sundry that she isn’t about to take any BS. Check out what she pointed out in a social media post this week:

For years power soca has always taken the bigger purse in the monarch, last year the competition saw the first prize for the entire event hosting 12 entrants on final night according to records to be TT$300,000. I have requested that the Power soca go back to its original standing of 1 million and Groovy normally in the low hundred thousands (do your research) to TTD$500,000. The brief that we had with the Artiste on Monday where discussions with Farmer Nappy and others who actually attended the meeting saw us working out the details of the groovy to be a monarch title as well. (Headline on pic clearly not from meeting with Artiste) in addition we discussed ways to get our monarch to be included in other countries monarch and acknowledged as monarchs as well (not mentioned in article) and further to that there was an exchange of ideas from the attending Artiste on past monarch happenings (one of which was band inclusion as D All stars band normally backed the Artiste for many monarch) and the ability for me to schedule rehearsals using my band was not just sensible but manageable. This post is to simply advise that we understand the power of print and for us to put the information in the public domain correctly. Misleading headlines will lead to negative comments and will have no positive impact on the competition that helped many of our biggest names carve the careers they enjoy today. Thank you all and God bless you all. Have a safe carnival. #FayAnnLyons

Rude Boy Orlando Takes On The Bad Boys. Attacks Senseless Rivalry.



Trinidad and Tobago’s having a hard time arresting an out of control crime situation. Two rival gangs are at the core of many murders on the twin island, a situation that has led to lessened economic investment and consistent travel warnings to international destination seekers. One young, talented artist is speaking up and unlike others, he’s pointing out the perpetrators without fear of persecution.

Orlando Octave hails from Rio Claro, South Trinidad. He’s proven to be a faithful believer in the biblical scripture, having given fans insight into his spiritual journey, over time. The young entertainer has been to Israel, tracing the bible’s teachings and often sharing his experiences with his fans. His latest music release is a far cry from songs like, ‘Single,’ ‘ Berlin’ and ‘ Church Gyal’ – Soca tracks he’s delivered in the past.

Octave’s highlight of the Rasta City and Muslim gangs’ ongoing anarchy and it’s senseless negative effects on Trinidad and Tobago’s population, has placed him in a category that includes celebrated entertainers who’ve used their platform to highlight societal issues- artistes like David Rudder, The Mighty Shadow and Singing Sandra.

Octave started his music career in the Calypso arena. The storytelling genre, for many years proved effective for artistes who mounted stages across Trinidad and Tobago to decry the actions or inaction of empowered governments. Octave’s reggae infused track, ‘UniTTy’ is pretty much aimed at doing the same, delving deep into the core of a societal problem that is quickly destroying a land once prided as paradise on earth.

In recent time Orlando Octave has been a part of a positive clique of artistes, among them Sizzla Kalonji, Marlon Asher and IzaacKing, who’ve been preaching positivity as much as they can, via the music they deliver to the masses.
