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

Buju Cleared for T&T Entry. Private Jet Arrives on Friday. Watson Speaks Out.



Trinidad and Tobago is bursting at the seams with excitement as the I Am Legend Festival headlined by Buju Banton, is just days away. An official advisory from the Ministry of National Security today highlighted that Buju, along with Luciano and Wayne Wonder had all been cleared for entry into Trinidad and Tobago by the Chief Immigration Officer.

Buju Banton is free to enter Trinidad and Tobago on Friday.

There was some concern last week after an announcement was made by the Minister of National Security, Stuart Young, indicating that he had not seen documents related to any request for Buju to be allowed entry into Trinidad and Tobago. It was subsequently reported that High Frequency Entertainment- the promotional outfit that will host Buju and his friends at the I Am Legend Festival on Sunday, had in fact submitted documents to the Ministry of National Security since November 2018. They re-submitted the request and received notice of authorization on Wednesday. understands that Buju will arrive in T&T via private jet on Friday. The artiste’s last visit to Trinidad was in 2009 when he performed at that year’s I Am Legend concert at the very same venue, the concert capital- Queen’s Park Savannah. “There is something mystical and magical about this occasion. It’s been exactly 10 years since Buju last performed here. He’s received so much support from the people of Trinidad and Tobago over the years and there is no doubt that he is grateful for all the love that’s been shown, over the years,” said High Frequency Entertainment CEO, Glenroy Watson.

Buju Banton was last experienced in concert, in Trinidad, in 2009.

The stage is set for what Watson assures, will be a memorable show of love and unity at the Savannah on Easter Sunday. Tourist arrivals to T&T, according to Watson, has soared in the past few days and is expected to increase further, in the next day or two. “There’s no doubt in our minds that this festival is an attraction to Trinidad at this time. It’s an economic booster and I’m happy to deliver this to my country,” he said. He however expressed disappointment in the corporate sector, explaining that most of his expenses have been satisfied out of pocket. “It’s not an easy road as Buju said, but with God at the helm, I’m guaranteeing everyone that this festival will continue annually- corporate sponsorship or not,” said Watson, highlighting that despite all that this event has done and will do, to boost local employment for the period, increase tourist arrivals, earn foreign exchange for the country and so much else, he has received no major sponsorship or government support for the benefits T&T will essentially reap.

Koffee makes her T&T debut on Sunday at the Queen’s Park Savannah for the I Am Legend Festival. The youths are anxious to catch her live.

The I Am Legend Festival is the biggest event of its kind to hit T&T, in recent years. Buju Banton’s name wields tremendous weight in these parts with even youths below 18 years of age, eager to experience the reggae hit maker, live. Banton, best known to many as simply, Gargamel, will be joined on stage by young star on the rise, Koffee, veteran reggae stalwart, Luciano, melody maker, Wayne Wonder and of course, Singing Melody, Tony Curtis and LUST.
