Some of the top Chutney Soca artistes in the industry came together and lend their voices in unison to encourage their Trinbagonian countrymen and fans all over to get vaccinated. The song “Let’s Get Vaccinated” featuring Ravi B, Kenneth Supersad, Master Saleem, Savita Singh, Rawytee Ramroop, Adesh Samaroo, Nisha Ramsook, and Veejai Ramkissoon was written by Kenneth Supersad, and produced by Kishore’Wizzy’.
Within hours of release, thousands of views, and many positive comments started pouring in on the YouTube channels that carry it.
Southex Event Management Company (Southex) who teamed up with Oropouche East MP Dr Roodal Moonilal (of Trinidad) for the project, had this to say in a press release:
“The authorities have done a good job in getting vaccines and making them readily available to the public, but because of so much mis-information out there on social media, there are people out there who have decided that they will not take the vaccine for different reasons.”
“While we respect their decision, we hope that everyone will get all the information available, check with their doctors and rethink their decision, as we believe that this is the only way out of this pandemic that has traumatised the world for almost two years.”
“About two weeks ago, Southex was approached by Dr. Roodal Moonilal. He had a genuine concern for people who did not want to take the vaccine, and at the time had lost many friends to the dreaded virus.”
“The project being launched today was initiated and assisted by Dr Roodal Moonilal with financial support from the business community. When Dr. Moonilal approached us, we thought it would be a great idea to market and motivate people to go out there and get the vaccine through comedy and music.”
The other tracks in our August playlist contain the familiar themes of a lighter note though so take a listen and enjoy.
