St Lucians Put Down Their Own Soca Artists - What A Shame!

by Soca Lover
(Saint Lucia)

It's a shame how Saint Lucians love to put each other down, especially anyone in the limelight (including their own soca artists). Just search Twitter and go through Facebook to see how many insults the artists got last night at the soca monarch.


Yes, the artists read all the "bad things" you say about them. They may look bigger than life put they are normal people with feelings just like you. It makes you feel better to trash another? That's how you make yourself feel good? Do you have to be so harsh?

These St Lucian soca artists try very hard to put on a good show, make huge sacrifices, spend their own money, don't make a profit, have sleepless nights and sometimes it doesn't work as planned. It may look easy but it's hard. Very hard.

How about trying to highlight what's good about your artists? When you label the artists' creativity as crap, and you post it on the Internet, you're telling the rest of the world that our music is crap and by extension, you (as a St Lucian) are crap.

It doesn't seem like de rest ah dem eh want us the St Lucian artist to move forward. They preach all "Buy local" Why not "Support Local" and give de young people who sleep in studios, just to make sure they have something to give to you guys to enjoy and jump up to. Lets give a hand to the Ambis , The Orions, The D'seans, The sergies, The Jaybudz, The Mongstas, a big Thank you and love and kisses for putting all into the music. It may not be what you want to hear. Lets give them a chance. they are the ones that will make t Lucia proud eventually

the lucian artists have nobody to blame but THEMSELVES! The artists take too long to put out QUALITY MATERIAL! Trinidad carnival is in Feb and stuff comesout Sept-October right. Look at TJ Land of Whine came out March-Feb it made an impact cuz it was early people loved it! But when you have artists such as QPid who are veterans in the business singing crap, and thats no disrespect to her, how can you expect people to support that. The artists need to take their hard earned money and invest it in their craft wisely! Stop accepting medicore beats from Producers. You dont like a beat you dont like certain elements, sit down with the producer and make sure you get sumting of quality for Lucians to like! Dont blame the public. As an artist you put urself out there for criticism. Its all part of fame!

Like I said the artists need to master their craft. Get it together! Lucians will not support your stuff if they dont like your song. Release the music early! And some of these producers need to stop flooding the market with their riddims. Curty is a big example! 90% of the songs on the riddims are crap honestly. The beats always sound the same! Superman sat down with him and co produced Born To Mash Up. Thank God! Thats what i like to hear! Make sure u get quality material. Man like lance last year had a big chune and this year tho his song was good, lucians hardly knew it cuz it was released last and wasnt marketed properly. Music is a business, something these "artists" do not understand!

And as for Scady. No disrespect but you are a horrible MC. You should hear the stuff lucians shout in the crowd at you. They dont think you are funny and they are tired of seeing you on the statge. Everyone needs to get it together. Dont blame lucians artists, blame yallselves! For real.

Lets hope next year the material is of the highest possible standard!

Money talks
by: Anonymous

Some Lucian artiste are just too greedy. It's all about money for them. As a foreign Lucian DJ, you promote their song for them year after year, day to day in clubs, on the radio and when you ask for a dublate; they want to charge lots of money but what they fail to realise is that you are just promoting their song for them. You get better vibes from other artiste from the rest of the caribbean islands. SHAME.Sometimes I wonder why I border to promote my own fellow lucians.
