Fay Ann, Bunji Return from Milan. Ready for Army Fete Tomorrow.

Published

on

A few days in Milan, Italy. We sure could do with that kind of excitement. Couldn’t you? The business lady of the Soca industry, Fay Ann Lyons keeps striking those deals and her husband’s quickly becoming an international brand. Better stay woke. These moves may be happening faster than many of us expected ’em to.

Fay Ann keeps minding her business, ensuring that her husband is in the money, all the time.

Lyons-Alvarez and Bunji Garlin jetted off to Milan earlier this week. They’d been a part of the Campari Caribbean crew who represented for the liqueur’s ‘Campari Diaries’ launch. While there, the pair rubbed shoulders with Colombiana star, Zoe Saldana. Now, back in Trinidad, they’re back to work. The pair are gearing up for a number of projects in the climax of the festival, among them, their very own events, Pree Dawn – a breakfast all inclusive board ride on board the Harbour Master on February 6th and their Santimanitay J’ouvert event.

Tomorrow, Garlin and Fay, along with the Asylum Vikings take the big stage at Army Fete. The military carnival event is possibly the most anticipated fete by hardcore carnival fetters, bar none. Considered the last of the REAL ground fetes, Army Fete will also feature the likes of Machel Montano and his band, Roy Cape, Ricardo Drue and the All Stars, Kes The Band, Shal Marshall, Patrice Roberts, Lyrikal, Iwer George and a number of other incredible Caribbean Soca stars.

One of Trinidad and Tobago’s most idolized soca artistes had been off radar for the past four days. Machel Montano has since re-emerged, having switched on his mobile phone and reconnected with the world. He says he had been on a four day retreat and had no access to his phone or any outside media. What he found upon reconnecting with social media was that his homeland of Trinidad and Tobago had suffered massive flooding and devastation.

Like many other entertainers, the Road March title holder immediately extended a message of hope to those who’ve been affected.

“This morning I was overwhelmed by the amount of messages of concern, prayer and well wishing. I was saddened to learn of the devastating floods that hit home in Trinidad and Tobago and my heart goes out to all those who are affected.”

The Siparia native who now resides in Los Angeles, explained that Trinidad and Tobago is a nation of great resilience and further saluted those who’ve helped during and in the aftermath of of the flooding. “Thank you for all the prayers and to all those who will continue to support the relief efforts,” he said on Instagram.

Olatunji Yearwood’s herculean effort to expose the Soca music genre to the European market and by extension, the world, is being praised by his cohorts in the Caribbean music industry. Shurwayne Winchester, who himself, has worked hard to take the genre to music lovers around the world, on Sunday said he is extremely proud of the former Groovy Soca Monarch champ.

Shurwayne Winchester is proud of Olatunji.

Beneath an EBUZZTT post, Shurwayne said, “I am proud of this man. He won more than he can imagine.” Winchester went on to point out that history will one day show that when Soca is called, it was showcased to the world by this young, impressive artist.

On Saturday night, Ola took the stage on the X Factor UK where he performed a new single written merely a few days before the performance. The single, “Jiggle” was well received by the UK audience, but unfortunately he did not receive enough votes that would secure him a space into the next round of competition.

Destra congratulated the young artiste, saying his parents would be very proud.

Destra Garcia, a phenomenal culture ambassador herself, also took the time on Sunday to give respect to Olatunji for his effort on the television show.

“Proud of you Ola. You flew the flag so high for soca and for your county, Trinidad and Tobago on behalf of all of us.

 

Destra went on to say, “Your parents would have been the proudest. You did well Tunji… you did well. This was just not your time. But now the world knows who Olatunji ‘Tadow’ Yearwood is. Love always my brother and friend.”
