Just teasing!

KERWIN DU BOIS will not be making his exit from show business any time soon.

While on stage at Socatology: Carnival Addiction on Sunday, the Trinidadian soca singer said the event would be his last. Anyone in attendance may have been wondering what he had planned if he were to quit.

However, after Du Bois came off stage, he told the WEEKEND BUZZ in a brief interview that he was not serious.

“That was just talk to bring in my song Unforgettable . . . I thought about it but that’s not true, I just wanted to hear what the crowd would think,” he said.

The No Apology singer recently released several songs for the Trinidad Carnival season, some of which he performed at Kensington Oval. He described the festival as the “the weakest in years.”

When asked why, he wasn’t sure whether it was the people or “the vibe”.

“People want to say it was the music,” he said. “. . . I don’t believe that even when you had music playing the vibe was still flat.”

The multimillion-dollar earning festival begins at the start of the year and ends on the day before Ash Wednesday, a moveable religious feast. Du Bois feels that it’s time that the festival dates are fixed.

“I think Carnival needs to be revamped and set at one particular time of year and stop moving around because of Ash Wednesday, it killing what the culture is really about,” Du Bois said,

Fellow Trinidadian artiste Lyrikal who also performed at the event said he was was happy to be in Barbados again and thanked his fans and promoters for their support.

He described the Trinidad Carnival season as “short”, but said it was intense, but he added: “It was a great one at that.”

Skinny Fabulous also said his was season was phenomenal. Because he said normally he only released a maximum of two songs, but this year he said he released about six songs that were well received.

He listed those singles as Born For This, It’s The Weekend (Thank God It’s Friday), Plenty, Full Hundred, Born For This and Go Hard, the latter a collaboration with Machel Montano that was recently featured as ESPN’s Song of the Month for March.

All three artistes said they were looking forward to the upcoming Crop Over season and had plans to collaborate with local producers such as King Bubba FM. (TSG)
