PM: Carnival product evolving for the better

Prime Minister, Allen Chastanet, has expressed pride in Saint Lucian artistes, declaring that they continue to ‘up their game’ in representing this country.

On his Facebook page, Chastanet also observed that Saint Lucian carnival is evolving for the better.

He said he was looking forward to other carnival events.

The Prime Minister disclosed that on Wednesday night he attended Soca Kingdom which was held at the Daren Sammy Cricket ground, featuring Machel Montano along with” our very own Ricky T, Teddyson John, and Dennery Segment.”

“The large crowd was enthusiastic and demonstrated what Saint Lucia party fever is all about. To borrow the expression, ‘Things were turned up,'” Chastanet wrote.

“The performances by Ricky , Teddyson John, Dennery Segment – all added their hometown flair to the event. Of course, Machel Montano rocked,” he observed.

“Welcome to all the visitors and Saint Lucians from the diaspora who are here to party with us. Can you tell that I was having a good time too?”

The PM urged everyone to be safe as they enjoy carnival.

    Mr. PM; carnival is evil, what we need is prayers for our people, because Lucia is dying, only God can save Helen, once upon a time was paradise found, but now is paradise lost, Lord put a hand!

      What evil about carnival? I look at wining as an art. Its an african art of dance. What goes on in you mind when you do it can be evil. Is nakedness evil? Exposing ones private part in public is against the law of the land.I will agree that carnival has lost its meaning, There isn’t the creative art anymore. I do not watch carnival because i believe some individuals misbehave but I will not state that carnival is evil.

    Carnival should be a cultural expression of our people. It has now degenerated to near nudity and gives people a license to behave badly. Carnival has now descended to who can behave the worst. Around this time we overlook or condone sexual promiscuity, drunkenness, obscenities and generally unacceptable behaviors. Creativity, decency, chastity are tossed through the door. Yes, carnival should be a time to let down your hair, to immensely enjoy yourselves, to show off your dancing moves, but not to simulate sexual intercourse and to bring this once beautiful cultural display into disrepute.
