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

Published

on

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.

He’s always referred to himself as a champion. Now, former West Indies cricketer, Dwayne Bravo says he is the champion of the nation. His life story may be quite similar to many of Trinidad and Tobago’s young people, but what makes the cricket star turned artist, a pillar of powerful change is his forward thinking attitude.

Bravo released a new single on Monday. It would prove to be something quite timely, amid a spiralling crime situation in Trinidad and Tobago. The song, “Done De War”, expresses Bravo’s desire to see peace, unity and love in the land of his birth. Speaking on RED96.7FM, the entertainer said, ” This is a new song for me and it’s no secret what’s going on in T&T. This song isn’t only about the violence because there are all kinds of wars happening around us.”

Bravo suggested that there is animosity among DJs, athletes and even religious factions, even suggesting that there is war taking place even on social media.

“I want everybody to unite in Trinidad and Tobago. The time is now. The festive time is now and people are releasing a lot of different types of songs but I’ve chosen to use my platform to encourage positive change.”

 

On Monday, the superstar cricketer made his rounds to various urban radio stations, preaching this sentiment, urging Trinidad and Tobago’s people to do better for themselves, and for the generations to come.

Bravo visited the youths at Success Laventille Secondary School recently.

Explaining that he had embarked on a school tour recently, the Santa Cruz, Trinidad native said many children look up to him and he realised that with their appreciation of his music. “Most of the children know my songs word for word. This song is really calling on the nation, for everybody to unite as one,” he insisted.

In a social media post on the first day of his school tour, Bravo, having visited the children at the Success Laventille Secondary School said, “It felt so good.” His effort to draw attention to the harsh reality faced by many of these young people who reside in crime hot spots in Trinidad and Tobago, is certainly worthy of commendation.
