Just about one week ago, Soca artist, Fay Ann Lyons expressed herself openly on the issue of racism as tensions surrounding the topic increased in her native Trinidad and Tobago.

Even as voting had ended following General Elections, supporters on both sides of the political divide, supporting either the People’s National Movement or the United National Congress, used social media to reveal their true feelings about each other. One person, whose name was aligned to a popular beverage brand on the island, came under fire for her racial remarks and there were calls for a boycott of the product. As that erupted, Fay Ann made her view publicly accessible, posting the following message.

Trinidad and Tobago’s Opposition party, the United National Congress conceded to defeat on Tuesday. The country had been awaiting the outcome of a recount of ballots for key constituencies. The end result was that the People’s National Movement would be elected to govern for another five years.

Opposition Leader, Kamla Persad Bissessar made a point, in her issued statement, to call for unity across the country. She said the people on both sides of the political divide must now work together in harmony. “We recognize that we operate in an adversarial political system but now is the time for reconciliation and healing among our people. We are one nation. We are one people. The election is over and now, it is back to the harsh reality of working to put bread on the table and being our brother’s keeper.

Persad Bissesaar said political choices should be respected without invoking and inciting race to divide the nation. “I call on all political parties and interests to resolve immediately that we will not let our beloved Nation’s longstanding tradition of harmony, tolerance, and unity be jeopardised by expressions of hate, divisiveness, and fear-mongering. We must respect each other’s political choices without invoking and inciting race to divide our people. I call on all citizens of good conscience to reject hate.

Female star power can no longer be categorised as merely sporadic, or dismissed as isolated, as this past year has seen the ladies topping the charts and holding their own alongside their male-counterparts. Among those who trod on fiercely, carrying the flag of female empowerment are Jamaican-born dancehall singer-songwriter Hoodcelebrityy and rapper Kash Doll. 

KashDoll

On a mission to unite and entertain the world through music, the multi-talented pair have released “SO PRETTY”, a hit-bound track celebrating women’s beauty and independence worldwide. According to a media statement issued by Destine Media, the song is an anthem for women everywhere to unite with each other and embrace their differences. It is the call for women to use their power, unite with who they truly are, and liberate themselves from patriarchal standards. 

Hood Celebrity

Known for her self-esteem boosting international chart topping singe, “Walking Trophy”, Hoodcelebrityy spoke on the song’s inspiration, and her collaboration with BET Award nominee for Best Female Hip Hop Artist Kash Doll, saying, “I wrote the song “So Pretty” to let women of all nationalities know that they are all beautiful. I wanted to show my appreciation for diversity and that beauty comes in all shades. I also wanted to let girls know that beauty can stem from confidence in oneself . That’s why I had to get Kash Doll on this. She exudes confidence and has such a boss mentality. Her independent mindset is inspiring,” she said. 

As this tumultuous year comes to a close, let us not forget that 2020 marks the year of the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment, guaranteeing and protecting the woman’s constitutional right to vote. It is therefore only right to celebrate women’s independence and “SO PRETTY” does just that. 

Paired with a provocative, sexy video, which premiered on Complex, “SO PRETTY” is available worldwide beginning today, on all major streaming platforms and digital outlets, and even on Hoodcelebrityy’s  official YouTube channel.
