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.

She’s seen a weed vending machine so far and she seems to have been pretty blown away by that. Nailah Blackman’s in Switzerland. The soca beauty is there for the Swiss Soca Festival, something that’s pretty huge for this fresh, young entertainer.

Blackman, who unleashed a new EP last month called ‘The Reel’, has been delivering consistently over the past two years. Vocal strength and a visually appealing package, makes her an artiste to watch in the Caribbean music industry- an artiste who, by all accounts, has the best potential to make it onto the international music circuit.

In a near emotional rant on her Instagram story, Blackman said she is extremely happy. “All my life I always wanted to travel and do music and I am here for the Soca Swiss Festival. This is just amazing to me!” she said, thanking God for the opportunity. “God is good,” she said.

Nailah told her fans that she had always wanted to visit Europe. She said a lot of the artistes she’d listened to growing up, were European. “The whole vibe, the whole gloomy vibe, it’s a definite vibe. It’s definitely an emotion that I felt a lot in my childhood and I get why people would’ve made songs like they made in this kind of weather- it’s sort of gloomy so it’s nice to have soca here… bring a different side, yuh know!”

Check out Nailah’s reaction to the Weed Vending machine find, in Switzerland.

Kes the band has been busy. An entire album is being released to fans of Soca and Calypso music this month. In an interview on RED96.7FM on Thursday, Kees Dieffenthaller- lead singer of the band, said the album, “We Home” would be dropping on August 28th. He also urged the people of Trinidad and Tobago to love up Calypso music.

The upcoming album is the band’s first live studio album and according to a social media post on the band’s page, it was born out of the present global situation. The COVID-19 pandemic, still a very present threat, Kees said the period has given many people the time to reconnect with loved ones, take things slow, recharge, innovate and be at home.

The album is described as one that delivers to fans, the energy that’s often shared by the band when they’re on stage. “We miss the energy we get from you when we’re on stage and wanted to share the vibes we feel when we’re performing. We hope this album captures that feeling and gives us all something to look forward to when we could jam once more. We can’t wait for you to hear it,” said the social media post. ⁠ ⁠ ⁠

Speaking toward the end of the radio interview on Thursday, Kees embraced the applause offered for the collaborative single done with Jimmy October- a single called, “Magic”. He took that opportunity to call on the people of Trinidad and Tobago to celebrate calypso music which, he reminded the world, many other genres were bred from.
