MM: So how has the season been
going so far?
BJ: This has been a great season and
experience so far. I really can't say any-
thing different in that aspect.
MM: What's different about you this
BJ: I'm not sure if there's anything
different about me this year I mean I'm
doing the same thing I always do,
freestyle songs on spot at shows, ag-
gressive approach to my music, broad
variety of topics. Nothing new.
MM: What does Carnival mean to
BJ: Carnival means to me what a Yule
is to a Viking or what Santa Claus is to a
child. It's the moment and it's also an
MM: According to Express repoter,
Nicole S Farrell, you're currently the sex-
iest man in Soca, how do you feel about
BJ: Oh shucks that's a big load to
carry lolol. I'm cool with it I guess. I think
if if I'm number one in my wife's eyes I
could be at zero on that list and I'm cool
MM: Do you have any pre-show ritu-
BJ: None absolutely
MM: Is there anybody who want to
do a collab with?
BJ: The voice of calypsonian Mer-
MM: If you could sing one song on
American Idol what would it be?
BJ: Lionel Richie "All night long"
MM: What does your smartphone
mean to you?
BJ: That I need to be extra smart.
Man made it so therefore it shouldn't be
smarter than me. Plus it saves a lot of
work time for me.
MM: Where do you get time and en-
ergy for household chores considering
your busy schedule?
BJ: The whip of my beautiful wife en-
sures I find time and energy for that. If
wasn't for her a lot of things I might
have just left undone lol. It helps a lot in
teaching us about each other.
MM: Can you cook? We not talking
Corned beef eh? What can you make
well? Not Corn beef.
BJ: I'm great at making Cornedbeef
MM: What did you want to be when
your were ten years old?
BJ: An Assassin
MM: Tell me a funny joke
BJ: Sorry no good here lol
MM: Who would win a fight between
a ninja and a pirate? Tell us why.
BJ: Oh yeah a ninja won that long be-
fore the pirate ship even moved to get
the ninja's base, since ninjas have the el-
ement of surprise and of course
shadow weaving. For all you know he
probably beat the pirate and just
dressed like him and took the ship out
for a spin.
MM: What's the most interesting hol-
iday you've ever had?
BJ: I would say Christmas when I was
MM: What are your thoughts on bush
medicine for the cold, like chandelier and
fever grass? Or is it over the counter all
BJ: I'm from Wallerfield. Bush meds is
what we adhere to since herbal medica-
tion attacks the root while over the
counter deals with the surface (Symp-
toms). That's why the over the counter
pharmaceutical business is so success-
ful. If you have to constantly buy some-
thing for the same issue someone is
getting paid. If you kill off an ailment in
one shot who's going to profit?
MM: I don't know if you've done this
before, how many balloons do think
would fit into a Range Rover?
BJ: If it's a range rover sport I would
say about 175 balloons , if it's a standard
vogue or a top end autobiography I
would say around 200 which may be
around the same as well for a land rover
MM: What's the craziest thing a fan
has ever done for you?
BJ: Threw me a surprise birthday
party in New York a few years ago.
MM: Have you ever been stalked?
BJ: Oh yes this would have to be
when this young lady found a way past
the hotel security (who in this hotel
were particularly strict), got them to let
her in my room while I was performing
and when I got back I surprised to see
this young lady under the sheets (stark
naked) and waving my passport asking
extremely angry because that was
property I should've secured better also
the fact that she got in the room and
then I didn't know if she was sick or not
and all these things. The fact that I met
her as a fan on many occasions in all in-
stances on a very respectful level then
see that extreme flip, was mind blow-
MM: What would you do if you had
a time machine?
BJ: I would use that to see the story
of Adam and Eve first hand.
MM: If you were God what would do
to the world?
BJ: That is one thought I never ever
make accommodation for.
MM: Do you like super heroes?
BJ: Of course. They represent what
we often imagine ourselves being able
to do at some point.
MM: What's the last movie you've
BJ: Desolation of Smaug. Wicked
MM: If you saw someone steal side
breast in KFC would you report them?
BJ: I would pay for it for them. Never
what situation they're in that may
have driven them to that point. They
may be is so much despair that steal-
ing that one piece is all the strength
they can muster. If they had focus and
time they may have stolen all lol.
MM: Do you know martial arts?
BJ: Yeah if i see it haha. One a seri-
ous note though on of my eldest broth-
ers is a 5th degree black belt in
shotokan from a school a cumuto
known as Young Tigers international,
and is actually Fay-Ann Lyons' Sensi in
the same art.
MM:You've been working with a lot
of different international producers,
how do you feel about the finished
BJ: Well the real work with those in-
ternational producers I'm working with
isn't finished yet but I feel great al-
ready about those projects even from
now so completion will be wicked.
