It was highly regarded English
poet, playwright, actor and
writer William Shakespeare, who
said “When words fail, music
speaks.” And indeed it does. We
suppose this theory has somehow
resonated this year with some
soca artistes who are using the
influence of music to speak to the
various social ills happening in
Instead of the ‘jump and wave,’
‘tip pun yuh toe,’ and instructions
to rotate your waistline, several
of them are spreading the
message of peace, love, unity
and the need for individual social
From early o’clock the band
LFS released their 2018 offering
in late 2017, tiled Try again.
The song speaks to fighting
people’s negative vibes about
one’s success with continued
positive thinking and speaking.
On the popular Upendo Riddim
produced by Lenky and Nine
Mind Entertainment, Machel
Montano tells young women
to value themselves because
they are more than their hips
and thighs with Take it Slow.
Aaron “Voice” St Louis speaks
to all so-called ‘bad man’ in his
composition Year for Love while
Sherwin “M1” Jeremiah pays
respect to women in his titled
Ups and Downs. Jeremiah begins
his song praising women who do
not accept physical abuse from
men. The song is quite apt as in
2017 the country
saw a surge in
against women. At
the start of 2018,
claimed the lives
of two women,
Arisa David and
whose lead MX
Prime (Edghill Thomas), slips in

But it’s not just the secular
artistes getting in on the soca
commentary some gospel artistes
like Genisa “Nisa” St Hillaire and
Isaac Blackman are also using
the season in an effort to restore
social conciseness. On the Guapo
riddim, St Hillaire who recently
won best female artiste of the
year at the 2018 gospel awards,
talks to men about respecting
women on a whole on the track
titled Life in Leggins.
She reminds them that they
came from mothers and also have
sisters; therefore women should
never be ill-treated. She also
called on the commercial world
to quit objectifying women, using
the female body and sexuality to
advertise any and everything.
Her brother in Christ,
Blackman, who is the uncle of
young soca sensation Nailah
Blackman, tells people to put
some love and a smile on it when
the road gets rough in his 2018
‘gospelypso’ single named Bumpy.
In the three verse song, Blackman
also tells men to appreciate their
women, he then addresses racial
divide in the nation underscoring
we are all from the human race
and in the final verse, he calls on
people to cry out to God during
their times of struggle rather than
taking matters into their own
hands that might at times end
with their own demise.
With the current state of the
world, not only T&T, we say good
going soca artistes for using your
influence and the airwaves to
convey positive messages in a
time when they are most needed.
