Youth not getting fair airplay


Share post:

BARBADIANS are always on the backs of our youths, bashing them from time to time about not being positive.

Yet we have some young people who are singers and songwriters for this year’s Crop-Over Festival and have not been given an opportunity for their music to be played on the airwaves.

These young people have paid to get their music composed like all the other artistes, and have taken time to visit all the radio staions and drop off their CDs to make sure they are logged.

But it seems to me that if you don’t have a brand name, or that if you are not part of “a crew”, the children of tomorrow will never to able to showcase the talent they have.

The reason is, it seems, that certain calypsonians must have their music played 24-7. There is plenty of music out there at the various radio stations which these DJs are overlooking because none of these youths have the brand name or are the children of any of the brand-name calypsonians.
