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.

She’s seen a weed vending machine so far and she seems to have been pretty blown away by that. Nailah Blackman’s in Switzerland. The soca beauty is there for the Swiss Soca Festival, something that’s pretty huge for this fresh, young entertainer.

Blackman, who unleashed a new EP last month called ‘The Reel’, has been delivering consistently over the past two years. Vocal strength and a visually appealing package, makes her an artiste to watch in the Caribbean music industry- an artiste who, by all accounts, has the best potential to make it onto the international music circuit.

In a near emotional rant on her Instagram story, Blackman said she is extremely happy. “All my life I always wanted to travel and do music and I am here for the Soca Swiss Festival. This is just amazing to me!” she said, thanking God for the opportunity. “God is good,” she said.

Nailah told her fans that she had always wanted to visit Europe. She said a lot of the artistes she’d listened to growing up, were European. “The whole vibe, the whole gloomy vibe, it’s a definite vibe. It’s definitely an emotion that I felt a lot in my childhood and I get why people would’ve made songs like they made in this kind of weather- it’s sort of gloomy so it’s nice to have soca here… bring a different side, yuh know!”

Check out Nailah’s reaction to the Weed Vending machine find, in Switzerland.

Kes the band has been busy. An entire album is being released to fans of Soca and Calypso music this month. In an interview on RED96.7FM on Thursday, Kees Dieffenthaller- lead singer of the band, said the album, “We Home” would be dropping on August 28th. He also urged the people of Trinidad and Tobago to love up Calypso music.

The upcoming album is the band’s first live studio album and according to a social media post on the band’s page, it was born out of the present global situation. The COVID-19 pandemic, still a very present threat, Kees said the period has given many people the time to reconnect with loved ones, take things slow, recharge, innovate and be at home.

The album is described as one that delivers to fans, the energy that’s often shared by the band when they’re on stage. “We miss the energy we get from you when we’re on stage and wanted to share the vibes we feel when we’re performing. We hope this album captures that feeling and gives us all something to look forward to when we could jam once more. We can’t wait for you to hear it,” said the social media post. ⁠ ⁠ ⁠

Speaking toward the end of the radio interview on Thursday, Kees embraced the applause offered for the collaborative single done with Jimmy October- a single called, “Magic”. He took that opportunity to call on the people of Trinidad and Tobago to celebrate calypso music which, he reminded the world, many other genres were bred from.
