Fay Ann Lyons Ain’t No Sucker. Singer Explodes in Song, Blasts Social Media Fete Killers.



There’s nothing like a woman with a sick lyrical aptitude. When that woman’s the daughter of one of the Caribbean’s most decorated Soca artistes and the wife of the lyricist himself, that ability triples. It’s Friday and Fay-Ann Lyons and her husband Bunji Garlin have both unleashed two riveting social commentary type soca tracks, this as the path to the most anticipated season, Carnival 2019, becomes vividly apparent.

Fan-Ann Lyons wants fetters to go back to the days of true enjoyment and feting with wild abandon.

The husband and wife duo has been rallying for international support for flood victims in Trinidad over the past week, but their philanthropic work in their homeland has not affected their desire to impact the world with good lyrical content. For quite some time, Fay Ann has been blunt about the way feting (partying), particularly in Trinidad and Tobago has been affected by the advent of social media and mobile technology. The new single, “Feel Good”, produced by Badjohn Republic, addresses the matter in a very powerful way.

Bunji Garlin’s single on the track addresses rumours.

Her new release comes on the heels of the death of one of T&T’s and the Caribbean’s most loved Calypso icons, the man who gave us ‘Poverty is Hell’ and “Yuh Looking For Horn”, songs that spoke of issues faced by so many. Winston Bailey, best known as the Mighty Shadow was, like many other calypsonians, a man who spoke about what he saw. The Soca dynamic is often less controversial, with artistes more inclined to sing songs to entice enjoyment and dancing, more than thought and conversation. Fay Ann’s ‘Feel Good’ along with Garlin’s ‘See Meh’- a song that speaks of rumours, are both tracks with powerful difference. Bunji, in particular, has been known to use his Soca platform to speak up, from time to time. In 2001, he had given soca lovers ‘Licks’- a track that spoke on the issue of sexual assault against women. Fiery as could be, his effective tone and new age Soca force had placed the spotlight directly on the issue, while at the same time, giving fete lovers a rhythm they couldn’t help but move to.

The Foli Riddim features other artistes. M1 has a track called, ‘Shy’ and songwriter Dale Ryan comes front with ‘Mama’. Another female artiste, Jonelle, has a track by the riddim’s name and Salty rounds it up with ‘Body Good’- a really old school, flavorful anthem.

‘A Team’ Keeps The Fire Burning. They’re Gearing Up for A Whirlwind 2019.



Every entertainer wants to be a superstar but it’s pretty extraordinary to find a team of individual artistes and musicians whose sole aim is to ignite the hearts of the masses, treating each player in the Soca game with an equal amount of respect and not to mention, wishing them all great success. The A Team Band is that team.

Lead singer, Eddie Charles has been a part of the Caribbean’s entertainment fraternity for some time.

From the 90’s to today, Eddie’s style of stage delivery has been unique, making him stand a part from the rest, each time. He’s joined on stage in frontline position by sole female vocalist, Ms. Kerlz and the pretty talented, Abbyshi Jackson.

What’s unique about the A Team Band is their appreciation for all artistes and the varying sounds and styles they bring. We recently had a chat with them, and here’s how they responded to some of the questions asked.

Patrice Roberts Wows Nailah’s Sokah Origins With Slammin’ Hot Bod.

Patrice Roberts is kicking all the haters to the curb. Well, that’s if she has any. Truth be told, everyone seems to be a huge fan of the ‘I Like It Hot’ singer who, in 2018, was present at almost every carnival fete, including Machel Montano’s Machel Monday. 

In 2019, we suspect Patsy’s gonna be a runaway horse, leading the pack with a level of confidence, many’ll just have to be in awe of. On Saturday night, in South Trinidad, the Toco native, threw all inhibitions out the door, donning a lengthy braided hair extension, complete with a body fitted ensemble that drew attention purely to her curves. 

Patrice’s body has been a topic of much debate over the years. She’s addressed public concerns as to whether she’s had work done, in the past, saying she hasn’t. In a 96.1WEFM interview in 2014, Roberts told Kim and Olatunji Yearwood that she’d simply been training very hard in the gym, getting her butt tightened as many had observed. Fast forward to 2018 and the mom of one is owning the attention, leaving tongues dragging and making even ladies, stare. 

Roberts has released a slew of soca tracks already, heading into Carnival 2019. We foresee an amazing season for the once-upon- a- time HD frontline vocalist who was mentored by the King of Soca himself, Machel Montano. She has teamed up with Sekon Sta on a single called, “My Side”. Beyond that, Patrice has given us several other great Carnival singles, all worthy of applause.
