“Entertainers”don’t be afraid to speak out on the real issues facing our country. It wouldn’t harm your fan base or the fame or the money. Because it affecting yuh fans too.” – M1

M1 has been speaking out on various social issues in Trinidad and Tobago.

He’s always saying it as he sees it, even when the possibility of victimization is apparent. The artiste most still refer to as Menace but who changed his sobriquet to M1 a few years ago, is calling on his cohorts in entertainment to speak out on social issues. A UK travel advisory lists Trinidad and Tobago as a place where there are high levels of violent crime and a place where terrorists are very likely to try to carry out attacks. Menace, has, in the past few weeks, been expressing his views publicly via social media, almost daily, hoping for some attention on the matters, and redress.

The United Nations yesterday questioned Trinidad and Tobago’s government on its stance on the issue of assisting Venezuelan refugees – this after some 80 or so Venezuelans were sent back to their country by T&T’s immigration. Prior to that, M1 had questioned the issue of illegal immigrants in the country, saying that some of those arriving in Trinidad and Tobago were up to no good and making it clear that the twin island Republic could do without any additional problems.

Now, with much said over the past two months, the Sangre Grande native who released a new single called, ‘Mama’ on the Golden Riddim last month, is calling on his peers in the industry to use their celebrity for the greater good of society.

Fusing contemporary reggae with elements of soul, hip-hop and dancehall, breakthrough recording artist Lila Iké teams up with rising dancehall talent Skillibeng for a powerhouse remix of “Thy Will.” Both hailing from Jamaica, these two distinct vocalists continue to gain notoriety as the island’s new generation of promising stars. 

The song premiered last weekThursday, via The Ebro Show on Apple Music 1. Yesterday, they unleashed the song’s brand new video directed by Nickii Kane and shot in Kingston, Jamaica. 

The original “Thy Will” is a standout from Lila Iké’s debut EP The ExPerience, where she calls out systemic issues of oppression and corruption. It is a reminder to keep pushing forward. “My people rise, remember now we black and we strong and when we are one, this is when we will overcome,” rings through the chorus. 

On the new version,  produced by Protoje, J.L.L. and iotosh, Skillibeng injects a vibrant dose of dancehall that complements the angelic conscious vocals of Lila Iké. 

Lila Iké will continue to drop new music throughout 2021 following The ExPerience.  

Lila continues to receive praise around the 7-track release. The EP was released to critical acclaim via RCA Records in conjunction with Protoje’s label and artist management company In.Digg.Nation Collective facilitated through Six Course Music in May 2020.

The EP’s single “I Spy” was selected as one of the year’s best songs from VICE, and SPIN named Iké one of the Most Interesting Artists of 2020. She graced NPR Tiny Desk with an at home performance amassing over 1.5 million views and more recently joined Protoje for a performance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert #PlayAtHome. She also received a 2020 nomination for Best New Reggae Act for the UK’s Music of Black Origin (MOBO) Awards.
