The Carnival scene in Trinidad and Tobago has been shaken up overnight. Like a burst of good energy, one of Soca music’s most revered female artists, Fay Ann Lyons, last night gave fans and foes something to talk about and boy will they talk!

Lyons Alvarez, known for her powerful stature and untameable spirit, performed with her husband Bunji Garlin at Sekon Sta’s birthday event, ‘Sekon Sunday’ last evening. She did not disappoint. In fact, so memorable was Lyons-Alvarez’s performance last evening that radio personalities across the airwaves can’t seem to stop talking about what she did. Haven’t heard or seen? Take a look below!

Fay Ann has always maintained her desire to keep the authentic and traditional elements of Trinidad and Tobago’s carnival, alive. Last year, she made no qualms in identifying elements of rigidity in many of the small island carnivals, that were once a staple to T&T’s festival season. At Sekon Sunday last evening, she told patrons in one area of the fete that while they looked great, the fete was not a Miss Universe pageant. She then moved to the left of the stage and excitedly hyped the crowd of fetters, all of whom responded in the affirmative to her encouragement to get wild!

Over the years, Fay Ann’s straight forward sentiments have gotten her in hot water with many criticising her approach to the subject. Despite the criticism, the mother of one has remained adamant that the authenticity of T&T’s Carnival, should never be touched. For many years, Lyons-Alvarez was seen surfing across crowds, her body elevated above the heads of patrons at fetes as she stood erect on cooler covers and other hardware, much to the enthusiasm of hardcore fetters.

Nadia Batson Recalls Shy Days. Artist Seals Big Endorsement Deal!

Nadia Batson may seem like a powerhouse soca performer these days, even captivating the business tycoons at telecoms company, Digicel this week, sealing a brand new endorsee deal, but she admits, it wasn’t always as we know it now.

Batson, speaking candidly on the subject of her personality earlier this week, during a chat with Jade Campbell and Akeem 5.0 on Boomchampions 94.1FM in Trinidad, said she was a very shy person when she entered the business, and for many years, could hardly build up the strength to position herself in the forefront of it all.

Nadia has honed her craft. For years, the singer and songwriter, band leader and overall creative, has stood erect for Soca music, delivering countless hits both for herself and others in the business. As a songwriter, she is prolific and when the time came, Batson also proved that she’s no pushover when it comes to entertaining crowds near and far.

Remembering her early years on stage with Kes the Band, Nadia told the radio personalities that she was extremely shy back then. She said having stepped toward the limelight now, to claim her space on the soca stage, she often finds it hard to believe that she has been able to do what she has. “Sometimes I look at how people react when I’m on stage now and I’m in shock,” she said, appearing genuinely grateful for what she’s come in to.

Batson is having a bumper carnival 2020 season in T&T already. She’s booked for all the major carnival fetes, including the upcoming Army Fete on Valentine’s night. Several incredible contributions to her credit this season, including, “Swing Fuh Me” “Kiss” “Fatt” and “Skinner Park”, she continues to show her power as one of Soca music’s top billing artistes of this era.

Patrice Roberts Deflects ‘Hard Questions’ Like A Boss And We’re Here for It!

In case you missed it, soca star, Patrice Roberts was a guest this afternoon on urban radio station, Boomchampions 94.1FM. She had a nice one on one interview and vibes session with hosts, Kevin Baker, SupaHype, Showtime Selvon and DJ Keron who doubles up as Patrice’s official touring DJ. Thing is, the Patrice we heard this afternoon was so in charge of her interview that not even the tricky questions could scare her.

The soca hottie who’s been maturing into her own in the past couple years, has delivered a number of big soca anthems this season. Songs like ‘Real Woman’, ‘Carry On’, ‘Happy Carnival’, ‘ Is We’, ‘Wha Yuh Know’ with Calypso royalty, Lord Nelson and others, have given the mother of one a beautiful catalogue to entertain fans with this carnival. Roberts’ personal life however, has been a matter of much public inquisition. On air, as she comfortably interacted with the guys, the singer fired back pretty matter-of-factly when asked whether she is single. “Not really,” she remarked coyly. Pressed to comment, she deflected like a boss as her daughter’s father, Ricardo Drue’s name came up. She would only say “a family that prays together stays together.”

Roberts and Drue were photographed together with Nailah Blackman aboard the Uber Soca Cruise in 2019.

Patrice and Ricardo have been spotted at a number of carnival events together. The status of their relationship however remains a matter of public speculation as neither of them have said they’re officially in a relationship. The duo have however proven to be very present, as a pair, in the life of their blossoming beauty, Lily.

Patsy certainly has grown into a powerhouse artist and we anticipate that her season will be as exciting of a public display as the speculation over her romantic life has proven to be. The soca star hosts her second Carnival concert, ‘ Strength of A Woman’ at the Normandie hotel on
