In the years that I've been covering soca, I have to admit I've met some fascinating people. I'v even made a few good friends. Artistes, like the rest of us, are regular people with hobbies, quirks and habits that colour their personalities in a unique way.
In life we often admire people who reflect ourselves in some way. So being a fan, isn't always just about music. Maybe you admire Fay-Ann Lyons for taking her career to the top while pregnant for the first time. Maybe Edwin Yearwood's sexy voice puts you in a "certain" kind of mood. Last night, a buddy told me that Denise "Saucy Wow" Belfon makes him consider dating "big girls"
When I first met mega-diva Destra Garcia, I was surprised to learn how down to earth she is. She had lots of questions for me about St. Vincent as she shared stories about her Grandfather and told me about her desire to learn more about her roots.
Most of us know that Maximus Dan is a huge football (soccer) fan. Ever wondered if you could beat him on the field?
Ever since interviewing Machel Montano, I've been curious to know what an HD jam session is like. Sounds like it's an intensely spiritual experience, and I might require a gas mask in order to breathe.
Today's Q and A is for you!
If you could lime with any soca artiste for one day, who would it be and why?
Please post your 2 cents below!
