FAS accused of promoting prostitution at beach event

Local entertainment promoter FAS Promotions is being accused of promoting prostitution through song during last night’s Digicel Barbados Reggae Beach Party, a charge the company denied.

A self-proclaimed prostitute known only as Natalie performed the now popular song Dirty Harry with singers SK and Pummydoo during the early hours of the show.

The song, which Barbados TODAY understands has been pulled from rotation by one of the leading radio stations, openly promotes prostitution and parades it as the norm.

Following the performance, many in the audience stood in shock and openly questioned why the promoters would allow such a song to be performed on a public stage. Some even asked openly, “this is what we promoting now?”

A section of the crowd at Sunday’s Reggae Beach Party.

Others who did not attend the event but heard of the performance, also expressed their displeasure, with some asking if “this is what we have come to”.

One woman who opted not to be identified asked, “How all of a sudden it’s cool to be a prostitute?”

Senior Pastor of Restoration Ministries David Durant today chastised the promoters, saying the decision to have the song performed was in “very poor taste”.

Durant complained that Barbadians seemed to have departed from their Christian values and needed to reevaluate themselves.

“Our values have fallen significantly in Barbados in the last several years. Our spiritual morals and values are gone and it seems as though we are just on a road of pleasing ourselves and doing what seems good in our own eyes and just fascinated by enjoying the pleasures of the world,” Durant, a Government Senator, told Barbados TODAY.

Performer Natalie with singers SK and Pummydoo, whose performance raised eyebrows and was described by some patrons as vulgar.

Durant added that adults needed to set good examples for the children, who were looking on and recording the adults’ every action.

“We need to set an example for our children and grandchildren who are very young and they are in their formative years. What we display before them they will copy, they will follow. And then when they get older, what have we raised? So I think adults have to be cognizant of the fact that we have a responsibility to be good examples to our little children. That’s our responsibility and we need to teach them the way to right way to go. And we don’t want to be setting bad examples for them. If you teach them vulgarity and so on they will become vulgar as well. If you teach them good morals and good behaviour and respect and love for one another then they will try to imitate that.”

He called on FAS Promotions and other promoters at large to be careful of the acts they book and the message that it could send, not only to locals but to those abroad.

“I’m sorry that the promoters went that route. Since it’s something that’s banned from some radio stations means it had to be some reason that it was banned. The mere fact that ruling was given then I think the promoters would have had a responsibility not to try to promote what had been ignored by radio stations.

“We all live in this small island so we want to respect each other and we want to share good values with our children. I would just ask promoters to be a bit more careful when they do these things. It’s not all just fun and play. When all that is done what instructions have we given to the younger ones who are viewing it? What example have we set when it’s all said and done? It’s not just for the moment. These things have long lasting effects,” Durant stressed.

In a statement today, FAS Promotions Director Al Gilkes said Natalie was not booked by his company, but was brought on stage by SK.

However, Gilkes said all performers were made aware of the profanity laws of Barbados before they went on stage.

“FAS Promotions booked SK among a number of Barbadian performers for the Reggae Beach Party event. While Natalie was not contracted as a performer for the event she appeared on stage as a part of SK’s act. As a matter of course for ALL FAS Promotions events, all performers are advised about the profanity laws of Barbados and the liability attached to the breach of these laws and this was done for the beach event. FAS Promotions does not condone the breach of any of the laws of Barbados and regrets if any patrons were offended by any of the performances on Sunday,” the statement said.

    I agree this was an embarrassment!! As a bajan living abroad I’m ashamed to see what some folks home consider as entertainment and Fas Entertainment needs to take responsibility for this bad decision. They were well aware of what was going to be performed for this show !! It was advertised all over social media Natalie was going to perform!! It’s a shame we speak so highly of pride and dignity and grown adults as well as young females home are comfortable going to parties in Lingerie and practically naked and encouraging females like Natalie to think it’s something to be proud of to promote prostitution!! This is the message being read by young people!!where have our self respect gone!!

    What you mean too lewd. Holywood promotes sex in their movies. Music glorifies, In fact, I have seen whatsapp videos with girls tekking bottles, five and six men having fun with them in sex circles while on boat parties or after during Reggae on the Hill. At crop over we allow anything to go. You sure it is the music of the fact that many Barbadians are just displaying their wutlessness?

Like prostitutes tho! I know no Christians did not go to this show… I hate a hypocrite, did a prostitute not wash Jesus foot? That song is one of d most popular local songs right now, it wull pewter off like any other song… But I believe miss babb should have taken pics of d ppl that stood in shock when Natalie came on stage, as proff cause I believe d whole crowd applauded… Cause I know bajans like to drop a seed(spread a rumour) cause it surely will grow… It may not be ok to be a prostitute in Barbados now, but before this song came out too many young girls were peddling their trade down bush hill and on may other street corners and nuff a wunna dirty husbands and men were sneaking out and buying? Them is who should be made to answer d question if its ok to be a prostitute in Barbados now!

      So murder was also big in bible times i mean cane kill abel soooooo i vise dat if murder illegal and prostution illegal and we desensitizing prostitution i can rightfully deduce that the next step is the desensitizing of ohhh just another sin and illegal activity called murder. so puuhhhhlleeeaaassseeee lemme know when i can host my first massacre and blood bath cause i got more than a few people i think want killing. I hope i have the love and support teamdirty is getting cause i does see blood baths everyday on tv and in ads and children are also at some point privy to seeing them. Please let me know when i can by my rifle anmmm i want this even live and direct too cause this is the in thing soooooooo what!!!!

      Disclaimer i hope that us bajans can identify the sarcasm i employed in constructing this response. The literary device is used to emphasise the faults in many of the reaponses/arguments on this thread. I have only replaced one “sin” with “another.” I am not discrediting the points made about the jamaican artist mentioned namely konshens however i am showing that in defending this behaviour your replies should be solid enough that no one cannot discredit with a mere switcheroo like i did. Dont say well that is murder omg why that is rediculous nooooo it is the same. As a feminist i cannot down natlie sweet girl but whether we believe the youth gone wild already we still owe them the benefit of the doubt and a chance to become rich and successful via plans ABC first education skills and hard work first. To many young girls is using this as an easy way out. Too many.

      Did the prostitute that you spoke of have remorse for her actions? From what i read yes, and that is why Jesus accepted her.This young lady seems unrepentant concerning her lifestyle and actually glamorizes it, her behavior obviously offended some of the patrons. One day she too may accept her Lord and savior so i will not be too hard on her,but this i will say this , the promoters of this show should be black balled for this nonsense and they are the persons who are to blame they have to accept responsibility for this lewd behavior. Miss Drakes you listened to the song and as you said it did not influence you, i take it that you are saying you found nothing wrong with it which is sad. have you ever considered helping these women get out of the morass of prostitution and find another means of gainful employment? This same means of employment that you are suggesting be regulated and taxed is a clear and present danger to these women i am sure that apart from the health risk you are aware that they can also be victims of serious crimes including murder.

    They went to party not church and as far as I know children are not supposed to be there. Why is it an entire country is to be governed by christian laws? Everyone does not share those beliefs and anytime somebody goes against it the zealots quoting all kinds of scriptures. Christians have a right to share their views and preach but bare in mind not everyone cares. That’s reality. Laws that are made solely on christian morals will, did and will continue to hold this country back economically and creatively!

    How many of the other artists have songs with lewd lyrics and performances with “dancing ” that reveals their private parts, talk about them then.
    Since some want to come from a Christian angle who not act the same way about the song amazing grace which was written by a slave master to calm the slaves while they were being savagely beaten and raped on their way to the Caribbean from their homes.

    I find the story extraordinary, the reporter indicates that the song has been banned on some radio stations, including a leading radio station, this implies it is still playing on some. Is it not more likely that those you wish to protect will hear it on the stations it is still playing at. A much larger audience that would have been reached at the show of party persons who more than likely already know the song as it was all over the social media. I am not promoting the song but seems a little hypocritical to condemn FAS Promotions when the song played and is still playing on some radio stations. This may provide her with a break into the entertainment industry and take her off the street, would that not be a good thing, the next song won’t be about Harry

It’s all a choice people have a choice to do what they what in life. So i understand many people’s points on the matter but still you can’t want to say things because she is a prostitute Barbados brings in artists that sing about gun violence and sex and so on and so on.

I dont understand how persons attending this show are critical because if popcann or whoever is the leading dancehall artist sang this song and performed it , everybody would be bend over to it or got it up as a whatsapp status.

    some bajan women willing to sell their bodies for money, clothes and to feel they famous. Some of them are loud and the famous bad girl in the neighborhood where everyone wants to be her friend. I see that happening in barbados. Meanwhile the country is slowly being sold over to china. I think its going to be worse because now with high prices, and more items getting a higher price tag on them, such as food, oil, gasoline there are going to be very bad habits encouraged. I think the government letting all these bad things happen because they already know, they can only accommodate, and employ too few people. Those people are the ones who graduate from high school or college with about 8 CXS’s, you have to have high knowledge to get a job in barbados these days. If you lucky and you can immigrate to a big country, to further your education and then come back and build a nice house, and have family members to help you along the way, but the devil is in the middle. Women giving away their bodies, the men stealing and going to prison. Not all though, I see some nice focused young people, that is on the straight and narrow.

    Also people love that loud stupid guy, he be on some radio station, why do people love him. Dont know his name, he make lewd comments about women and sex. He is just sickening, you usually hear him on the ZM vans. When young minds hear all this trash they think its normal. He really should shut up and use his voice to encourage people to do good, but I guess doing and thinking good is not the norm these days. Also bajans, some of them not all, need to stop talking people name and the person is right there, what the hell is that. The morality of barbados is going downhill in a hell basket, you will see it more if you out of the country for a while and then come back. Its so shocking.

    People of Barbados need to understand that religion is what holding the country back. Government need to start creating opportunities for it’s citizens instead of depending on so called Christianity and vultures in the pulpit to tell people how to live.
    As Karl Marx stayed. .”Religion is thr opium of the masses”

    Selfishness to the bone!! Only in my pleasure ! Like it or lump it ! Only the Escorts could have put across a tune in such rimming and psychological effect that no one could redeem it as vulgar in the lyrics! Do you remember; or airplay “Sixpence” ? Barbadians are follow pattern to some of the illiterate cultures of the hemisphere. It seems as though guys who played truant and got together to put vices into music are the norm for the average educated youth of Barbados. Pull yourselves together young men and women you can do better than that!

    My dear brother Al, you are indeed a PR specialist. Your response shows that you have lost nothing over the years. If I was one of the sponsors I would immediately pull the stump and done the game. The performance should have been stopped immediately, its that simple and there would be no need to apologize to your paying patrons.

    Have you guys ever listened to dancehall songs before? Most of them are about sex with the most lewd lyrics. So is it because she is a Bajan and declared herself a prostitute that we feel embarrassed? It hurt our pride a bit? If she were singing a Spice or Lady Saw song would we have really cared? Is it because she’s a woman singing about sex openly? If a man sings that he pays prostitutes for sex would we denounce him too? Just to be fair, if we are saying to pull her song the entire event on the beach should be cancelled. If not just don’t send your easily corruptible children there.
