Fay Ann Lyons Alvarez tells Ebuzztt this afternoon that she has been officially terminated from the position of Chairman of the International Soca Monarch competition, likewise, the position of Creative Director. It was only yesterday that news broke that Question Mark Entertainment’s Simon Baptiste was hired by the directors of the company, as Creative Director. Lyons Alvarez says this is the post she maintained and was left with questions upon hearing the news.

Speaking on the matter a short while ago, Lyons-Alvarez told us that she had spoken to Geoffrey Wharton Lake one of the ISM directors who confirmed that she would be receiving an official termination letter. “I called him to ask him what was going on and he informed me that they would be going with Simon as Creative Director for the long haul. I said, ok and asked him if they would be sending me an official termination letter. He said they would,” explained the former Soca Monarch and Road March champion.

Lyons-Alvarez told EBUZZTT that she would not be partaking in the competition in 2020 and she would not be attending in any other capacity either.

Blaxx was hopeful that Fay Ann would return to the stage at the Soca Monarch 2020 competition.

Earlier today, we spoke with Blaxx on the matter. He said he was very unhappy that Lyons Alvarez would not be at the helm, saying that he feels it is important for an artist to be involved in such a capacity as to treat with the issues of the artistes. “I hope she will enter the competition though,” he remarked, hopeful that Lyons-Alvarez’s involvement, at least in that capacity, would fuel the competition’s appeal. Now it can be safely confirmed that this will not happen as Fay Ann, in no uncertain terms, made it abundantly clear that she will have no involvement in the affairs of the International Soca Monarch competition, going forward.

Amid unprecedented upheaval over the present state of global economies and intense pressure on healthcare systems worldwide, mass deaths and a mandate by the World Health Organisation for world leaders to remove Covid-19 restrictions, well loved, reggae artist Buju Banton has broken his silence.

Buju, in three very honest social media posts on Wednesday, told the world that he is done with Covid-19, suggesting that it has been a plan all along. Known for his vocal stance against injustice whether via his music or perfectly articulated epressions, Buju who continues to enjoy his freedom following years of incarceration in the United States between 2009 and 2018, said, “We are tired of you intellectual fools trying to tell us how to live our lives. If you are so smart why haven’t you found the cure for cancer?”

The entertainer’s outbursts come one day after a video for the remix of Koffee’s single “Pressure,” on which his powerful, raspy vocals are featured, was uploaded to YouTube.

Countless hit singles and an authentic charisma that makes us all know that Blaxx is one of the real ones, is enough for us to fight to ensure that he stays with us much longer. In fact, so impassioned is artiste and DJ, Dawg E Slaughter about ailing entertainer Dexter ‘Blaxx’ Stewart’s medical condition that he has started an effort to help cover medical expenses for the ‘Breathless’ singer.

Blaxx has reportedly been ailing for approximately three weeks. It is understood that he has suffered kidney complications but is steadily recovering. EBUZZTT was unable to speak directly with the artist, however persons close to him explained that he is resting and recuperating.

When news emerged that Blaxx was ill, Dawg E Slaughter jumped into action, first requesting the artist’s permission before spearheading a drive to generate funds from fans and anyone who felt compelled to contribute in anyway that they could. Bank account information was shared and reposted by artistes like Destra Garcia and Shurwayne Winchester. The effort however became a talking point among some on social media who began questioning why the artiste should be assisted when “soca artistes make their millions.” Utterances like this one, and others of similar expression has led to much hurt by some members of the Soca industry. One artist, speaking on the condition of anonymity told Ebuzztt that it’s sad that the general public continuously chooses to condemn Soca artistes, when in reality, their perceptions of soca music’s creators are far from the truth.

With the exception of Soca’s veteran heavyweight, Machel Montano and a few others, the soca music industry’s contributors, according the artist, have struggled for years and now, with the pandemic, the savings of those who may have managed to save, could be exhausted. “Nobody is working and everyone of us have families, just like everybody else,” expressed the entertainer.
