Fyah Empress: “Family Comes First”

Vincentian Soca Artiste Lornette “Fyah Empress” Nedd has called out the New Democratic Party for misconstruing the reason why she had opted not to perform at the NDP’s Youth rally in Barrouallie last Saturday evening.

Fyah Empress was listed among the slate of artistes to perform at the NDP’s youth rally; however, in a Facebook post on Saturday afternoon the NDP said Fyah Empress withdrew at the last minute, after her family had come under pressure and threats of victimization by the “Dying Regime of Ralph Gonsalves.”

However, Fyah Empress took to the stage at a Unity Labour Party rally in calliaqua on the same Saturday evening explaining that the reason she had decided not to perform for the NDP’s Youth Rally was not as a result of threats of victimization, but as a result of family coming first.
