New music and a bag of Caribbean goodness is being touted by a man who’s stood firm in Trinidad and Tobago, for the promotion of authentic culture. As passionate as he is, Adrian Hackshaw has faced his fair share of criticism but he never stops. The Christmas season now in sight, Bass, as he’s more commonly known, has unleashed a new soca parang and it’s got some street cred too.

‘Parang Sou Sou’ plays on the recent hysteria in Trinidad and Tobago over the DSS- a financial effort, dubbed a pyramid scheme by some, which has been shut down by police and is presently at the centre of investigations in both Trinidad and Tobago. Bass, known for his swift wit, had no qualms when it came to pushing the envelope with lyrics that encourage giving via the parang sou sou.

“I always try to do all of my songs, especially the soca parang songs, in a sort of social commentary style,” he told us. He says he likes to bring things in a more realistic way to the people, explaining that the sou sou is what is presently trending and he thought to himself it would be a good play on words to include this concept into his first Soca parang for the 2020 Christmas season.

Bass thinks out of every negative, there can be positive. Notwithstanding the present restrictions in place across T&T in light of COVID-19, the radio personality and artist, says he plans on using the song to help those most in need this Christmas.

In recent months efforts by Ebuzztt to get Bunji Garlin’s input on various matters proved futile because, as he told us then, he wished to remain off radar as he had been working on something major that would eventually be revealed.

In the aftermath of his father’s passing, Garlin used social media to express his appreciation for the words of strength offered by his wife, Fay Ann Lyons. Months later, the pair unveiled plans to effectively carry the creatives in Trinidad and Tobago and across the Caribbean, in a trendy, digitised fashion. Earlier today, they introduced something called ‘Chrending’, set to become a dot com… a play on the word Trending, and a word certainly fashioned in the broken English dialect often heard across the West Indies.

At a media launch to unveil their new digital platform, which is aimed at cushioning the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic in such a way that would allow creatives to continue to earn, the Alvarez duo explained that the website, when up and running, would facilitate virtual concerts and other performances to the benefit of every stakeholder in the Caribbean’s entertainment industry. Specific details relative to copyright, according to Lyons-Alvarez, were still being ironed out amid talks with the Copyright Organization of Trinidad and Tobago.

Explaining that often time, artistes who utilise their personal Instagram Live platforms to host virtual events are interrupted for one reason or another, FayAnn said Chrending would eliminate such interruptions. She further explained that the website would allow each individual creative to possibly reach larger audiences than what would normally be their personal platform reach. “The idea is to bring the Caribbean audience together so when one person uses the platform you reach a wider audience and you are not just limited to the followers you have on Instagram,” she said.

The idea comes even as Trinidad and Tobago remains under restriction with entertainment being legally halted by way of the Pubic Health Ordinance, which prohibits gatherings of more than 10 persons in any one space. There will be no carnival in Trinidad and Tobago in 2021.

On Saturday evening, Lyons – a mother of one, was presented with the award for Best Song of the Year. She impressed Calypso lovers earlier this year and took home the coveted Calypso Monarch title, with the single, “Meghan My Dear.”

The song was written by Maria Bhola. In a social media post on Sunday, Lyons thanked her team of professionals who continue to outfit her. She wrote, “Just Grateful…nothing else but,” in closing.
