Despite the high lifestyles of entertainers and celebrities, we often forget that they’re people just like the rest of us. On Wednesday in South, Trinidad, soca artiste and Point Fortin native, Fay Ann Lyons, was honored by the borough for her contribution to culture and while the recognition stood tall, the humility of the artiste’s posts to social media, showed a different side to her- a side many would more than likely, bypass.

Alvarez has always stood unique on the soca circuit. Her blatant, fearless speech is sometimes misunderstood for aggression. In the heart of it all, Lyons-Alvarez, by all accounts, is a country girl to her heart. On Tuesday, even as she was being congratulated for being honored with the keys to her borough of Point Fortin, Lyons chose to return to her roots, posting a photo of herself with Secondary school teacher. She said she could not have left the borough without stopping in to say hello. “Could not pass through and not say hi. This wonderful woman taught me in school #MrsBridgemanand I will always remember her poise and strength…. and toughness! That woman was dread, but we all loved her,” she wrote.

Lyons-Alvarez recently returned from the Uber Soca Cruise where she took her vibe, like several other top notch soca artistes, to the people. She has already unleashed a couple tracks heading into Carnival 2020, among them, “One Love” with Jaiga and Grenada’s Lil Natty and Thunda and “Wha Deh Know” on the Nikholai Greene produced Cubano Riddim, which also features Jamaica’s Konshens.

Amid unprecedented upheaval over the present state of global economies and intense pressure on healthcare systems worldwide, mass deaths and a mandate by the World Health Organisation for world leaders to remove Covid-19 restrictions, well loved, reggae artist Buju Banton has broken his silence.

Buju, in three very honest social media posts on Wednesday, told the world that he is done with Covid-19, suggesting that it has been a plan all along. Known for his vocal stance against injustice whether via his music or perfectly articulated epressions, Buju who continues to enjoy his freedom following years of incarceration in the United States between 2009 and 2018, said, “We are tired of you intellectual fools trying to tell us how to live our lives. If you are so smart why haven’t you found the cure for cancer?”

The entertainer’s outbursts come one day after a video for the remix of Koffee’s single “Pressure,” on which his powerful, raspy vocals are featured, was uploaded to YouTube.

Countless hit singles and an authentic charisma that makes us all know that Blaxx is one of the real ones, is enough for us to fight to ensure that he stays with us much longer. In fact, so impassioned is artiste and DJ, Dawg E Slaughter about ailing entertainer Dexter ‘Blaxx’ Stewart’s medical condition that he has started an effort to help cover medical expenses for the ‘Breathless’ singer.

Blaxx has reportedly been ailing for approximately three weeks. It is understood that he has suffered kidney complications but is steadily recovering. EBUZZTT was unable to speak directly with the artist, however persons close to him explained that he is resting and recuperating.

When news emerged that Blaxx was ill, Dawg E Slaughter jumped into action, first requesting the artist’s permission before spearheading a drive to generate funds from fans and anyone who felt compelled to contribute in anyway that they could. Bank account information was shared and reposted by artistes like Destra Garcia and Shurwayne Winchester. The effort however became a talking point among some on social media who began questioning why the artiste should be assisted when “soca artistes make their millions.” Utterances like this one, and others of similar expression has led to much hurt by some members of the Soca industry. One artist, speaking on the condition of anonymity told Ebuzztt that it’s sad that the general public continuously chooses to condemn Soca artistes, when in reality, their perceptions of soca music’s creators are far from the truth.

With the exception of Soca’s veteran heavyweight, Machel Montano and a few others, the soca music industry’s contributors, according the artist, have struggled for years and now, with the pandemic, the savings of those who may have managed to save, could be exhausted. “Nobody is working and everyone of us have families, just like everybody else,” expressed the entertainer.
