Her name seems to consistently be paired with negative slander but believe it or not, the ViQueen, Fay-Ann Lyons-Alvarez remains unfazed. In a recent chat with Ebuzztt.com, the entertainer who took the helm of the Ground Empire when former Asylum Manager, Ian Pantin, was fired in 2013, says she’s come to terms with how the world is. “The world; people generally, find it hard to understand how a woman can be outspoken and strong, especially when it’s a black woman,” said the entertainer whose ripped core and toned legs are as fit and strong as they are eye candy for those who so desire. Lyons-Alvarez says her husband is no puppet and because he knows her as well as he does, he has no reason to speak on her behalf.

The dynamic Soca duo and their Asylum band are expected to appear at several carnival fetes this season. They are a featured act at Army Fete on Feb 17th.

“There are a bunch of sexist men in this country,” she said, adding that what some see as her “aggressive demeanor” stems from the way men would approach her in the past. “Society would prefer to have women solely for the purpose of looking good on the arms of their men. People don’t like women who speak out, women who are powerful,” she added, further saying that many women encourage the sexist comments often uttered by the opposite sex.

“I will not bend over and take a pic of my ass and put it on social media.” – Fay Ann Lyons-Alvarez          

Arguing that much of what women do on social media is aimed at attracting the opposite sex, the ‘High Heels’ singer told EBUZZTT that she will never weave her hair for anyone to like or accept her. “I am happy and comfortable in my skin and body. I don’t need anyone’s approval,” she said. Her attitude has been criticized, many saying that her tone is often harsh. Fay-Ann disagrees. “Ask any of the people who say that, if they’ve ever really sat down and talked to me and hear what their response is. It’s usually no. People say these things based on assumptions. It’s a black female thing. We attack outspoken, black females and we say they’re angry.”

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.
