So I’m just going to go ahead and call this for Fay-Ann Lyons.
They have not yet announced the results of the Bmobile International Power Soca Monarch contest and the Playwey (?) Groovy Soca Monarch contest but if Fay-Ann ent win de big one (power soca) then the judges did not see what the whole Caribbean did.
Eight months pregnant, Fay-Ann mash up the place with her hit ‘Meet Super Blue’. Half way through her performance, she brought on the man himself, her father Austin Lyons, aka Super Blue, eight time road march king. He didn’t have to do a thing except be there – he didn’t have to sing a note because the crowd was hers already.
Then… Fay-Ann bring de dunner. She hold over and say ‘ah feel a pain’. Call me foolish, I fell for it, especially when Super Blue put his arm around her shoulder. Hear me:
“Oh shite, she gine have a Carnival baby fuh trute?”
And then… this small, disembodied voice rang out as Fay-Ann pointed the mic at her belly and said:
“Junior! Play meh!”
The sound of the ‘Baby Lyons-Alvarez’ singing… flatten Hasely Crawford Stadium. Flatten, smash, annihilate!
All five minutes after she left de stage, de crowd was still chanting ‘Fay-Ann, Fay-Ann, Fay-Ann!’
So yeah, we calling this one for SuperPreggy Fay-Ann Lyons.
