Fay Ann Hits ‘Em Below The Belt. Questions Social Media Silence on Spiraling Murder Toll in Trinidad.

Published

Almost two weeks after her “black” feet made social media headlines and memes, Fay Ann Lyons launched a scathing attack against her critics yesterday, questioning their silence in the face of four brutal murders in La Brea, overnight.

A 69-year-old landlord, a female tenant, her daughter and a 14-year-old female friend of the woman’s daughter, were attacked, chopped and in the case of the elders, bludgeoned to death on Tuesday. Lyons-Alvarez, never one to be silent on matters of social interest, lashed out via a meme that featured the ever contained, Kermit the Frog as he sipped his usual tea. The meme expressed, “One set ah mouth for a foot. Murders in the country- they quiet.” It was all she needed to post to get the public stirred up.

In Trinidad and Tobago, the escalating crime situation bears heavily on the entertainment landscape, with many often lamenting the fear of venturing into certain areas and to certain events based on security concerns. Fay Ann Lyons hastened to chastise the critics yesterday, arguing that her physical appearance had seemingly churned up so much more attention than a situation that certainly warrants much more social interest and dialogue than the appearance of her feet.

The support was definitely relayed to the “Raise” singer, many accepting her point of view and reaction, though via meme. Lyons-Alvarez has maintained a strong position in the Caribbean’s entertainment arena, this despite being one of the most harshly critiqued entertainers in the Diaspora. Her slogan, “stay weird” echoes each time she posts to social media, making it abundantly clear that no matter what the world thinks of her, she will be herself in the face of it all.

One of dancehall’s leading contemporary artistes is on his way to Trinidad and Tobago for the highly anticipated and much talked about Inferno concert being held on Saturday at the Jean Pierre Complex. Busy Signal’s been creating major waves in the hemisphere and further afield in the past few weeks, having teamed up with Brazil’s MC KevinHo on a track called ‘Loko’, that’s also shared with Brazil’s Tropikal Bass Killers and the prolific, Major Lazer. The Jamaican Singjay recently represented his homeland in Brazil where Brazil’s MTV Awards took place. On June 9th, Busy will take the stage with some of dancehall’s biggest names at the Inferno concert event- a show that organisers insist starts promptly at 10pm.

It’s not Busy Signal’s first time on T&T’s soil, however, in a concert affair that is being touted as a mammoth rejuvenation of true dancehall and reggae vibes in T&T, the energy surrounding Busy Signal’s inclusion on the Inferno cast, is second to none. “We see this as the perfect blend of dancehall and reggae. On one hand you have Capleton- an artist that’s known to defend it when it comes to that hardcore conscious vibe, and of course Sizzla’s never to be outdone in that arena. Then on the other end of the spectrum we’re giving patrons good vibes, conjuring good feelings and nostalgia of days gone by with Barrington Levy- an essential name when it comes to reggae music. This is a man who ran things in the early 90s and has a catalogue of music that many of the up and coming acts could only hope to achieve. When Busy Signal’s added to that dynamic, it could only be magic on show night at the Jean Pierre Complex in Port-of-Spain,” said the organizer. Levy meanwhile, performed in St. Lucia on the weekend- the perfect warm up to what’s going to unfold in Trinidad.
