Artistes Criticised for Vulgar Lyrics In Crop Over Songs

Church leaders and a key spokesman for this country’s artistes are alarmed at what they see as a worryingly vulgar trend in the soca music produced in Barbados.

They are urging performers and producers to clean up their act.

New President of the Barbados Association of Creatives and Artistes, Colin Spencer, says the vulgar music played in fetes and on public transport is a real concern.

And even the content and themes of the songs-deemed fit for airplay worry him.

Meantime, retired educator, Mac Fingall, a veteran MC and entertainer is also concerned about the lyrics in some locally produced soca songs.

Speaking on VOB’s Fireworks program, he recommended that music be banned from public transport and especial that used by school children.
