I was going through my old playlists and I came across some Female Soca Artists and I was like HUMMMMMM…. What ever happened to her??
When I started going to Crop Over by myself in the early 2000s, one of my FAVOURITE artists was Donella Weekes. I always thought she would have had a much bigger career. The issue I think was that she ended up in a band with her husband. Not saying that Rusty is a bad person I actually like him very much. But I think that a husband and wife duo in a BAND is really a tough arrangement especially when the husband wants to be a big star. What ever happened to her???
There was a point in time where I actually thought Sanelle Dempster was going to be HUGE. I mean even bigger than DESTRA. She was the TALK of the Soca World at one point and I will tell there was never a fete in Toronto you went to where Sanelle’s chunes MASH UP de place. In fact they still do. Is she still around???? I really wonder what happened to her.
“Take me like a fruit… in the palm of your hand..”… BRAPS… Yow where is this young lady?? She did some Soca Covers as well I really thought I would have heard WAY MORE songs from her. I hope she reads this and decides to put out more music she was really good.
Boye…. There was a point in time I was fraid for ANY OTHER female artist to even TOUCH the groovy category. Zoleah boy… de woman did bad as TAIL. She was poised to be a very BIG Soca star. Not sure what happened. I seen a video with her talking about the elections in St Vincent… But outside of that… is she still doing music???
