Fay Ann Lyons Enters Mas Market in Jamaica. Puts Online Troll In Check.

Published

Fay Ann Lyons continues to build her empire. As she does her thing however, the naysayers and critics are doing theirs. The saying goes, ‘if they ain’t talkin’ about you, you ain’t saying nothing’ so amid all the reactions and criticism faced, Fay Ann continues on her mission, even behind the scenes.

Fay Ann Lyons and her husband, Bunji Garlin will deliver 8 mas sections for Jamaica Carnival plus 6 t-shirt sections.

The artiste will launch her spanking new band for Jamaica Carnival, One World Rebellion on December 8th- the very day, reggae sensation, Buju Banton walks free from a US jail. Lyons and her husband, Bunji Garlin, visited Jamaica last weekend where they gave some insight on their plans to the Jamaica Gleaner. In an interview with the newspaper, Lyons said, “people tend to have an idea of what things should or should not have been, especially in the soca community, and I, for one, have been known to be rebellious to all the limits given to me.”

The band’s 2019 theme is Revolt and according to the ‘Feel Good’ singer, the theme is rooted in history and is based on the background of various cultural revolutions from the Africans to the American natives’ fight for freedom. Lyons is undoubtedly one of the Caribbean’s entertainers whose strong sense of black consciousness, is always on display. The band will feature eight costume sections and six t-shirt sections.

Fay Ann told the Gleaner that despite her involvement in the Jamaica mas market in 2019, no one should be deterred from visiting Trinidad and Tobago for the Greatest Show on Earth. “Any consideration for a toss-up should be for persons to go to Trinidad and if possible hit up Jamaica after,” said the former Road March, Power and Groovy Soca Monarch champion.

Meanwhile, Lyons-Alvarez was, earlier this week, forced to put an internet troll in check, this after the person insinuated that she and her husband had used the money sent by Hip Hop superstar, Nicki Minaj for flood relief efforts, to launch their band in Jamaica. In her response to the person’s online post, Lyons said, “To all who find it necessary to ACCUSE me of stealing please be aware ..1- @nickiminaj sent her funds directly to ITNAC’s requested account. 2 – YES I was informed the funds was sent a while ago as she said she would. 3- any info on the funds please call ITNAC as I said since the beginning of the flood relief efforts they were one of the charities I work with (though some deliberately forgot)… lastly for you IDIOTS we been doing charity work for years not because I don’t post who we help means nothing is done or worse yet ….I STEAL. Get yourself together!!! Apparently this has been made public since OCTOBER…smh! THESE CHICKS DON’T READ…clearly!

Mark Myrie, the Jamaican reggae and dancehall giant the world knows best as Buju Banton, has been enjoying his freedom. He was released from US prison, having served a 9-year sentence, in December 2018 and since that time, the artiste’s spirit has been nothing short of triumphant.

On Monday night at the AC Hotel by the Marriott in New Kingston, Jamaica, the artiste celebrated his 45th birthday. He made a grand entry, showing gratitude with hearty smiles at the event which would mark his first official birthday celebration post release. Like fine wine, Buju assented to his 45th birth milestone and even with his simple and humble ways, fans of the artiste could tell that the best was yet to come.

The all white affair saw a number of well known Jamaican friends of the artiste in attendance, among them Sean Paul, Jamaica Deejay and personality Jabba and Romain Virgo. Buju’s Long Walk to Freedom Tour has seen him take stages around the Caribbean including Trinidad and a Tobago and Guyana shows hosted by High a Frequency Entertainment. Most recently, Buju crossed international waters, taking the stage in Amsterdam. His presence on stage, each time, has been nothing short of momentous, and some may say, near spiritual. At his Birthday “get together” on Monday, prior to engaging in chit chat with his friends and family, Buju prayed. It would be a symbol of his gratitude and love to the Most high God for all that he has gotten him through.
