The concept of normal being shattered in 2020 as US pastor, T.D. Jakes prophesied in December 2019, may have seemed far fetched back then but fast forward to April 2020 and the world as we know it, has been drastically changed. Over 127,000 people have died worldwide to date- in just about three months. Normal has ultimately been “shattered.”
Amid the global outcry for relief, ventilators and government aid in various territories, there are still some quarters where this concept of obeying calls for self isolation and social distancing still doesn’t ring clear. In Trinidad and other parts of the world some defy the odds, engaging thousands of online viewers on social media platforms by hosting virtual fetes and enticing naked women to shake their butts for all to see. Undoubtedly, there seems to be no concern for potential risk of COVID-19 death there! On the other hand, some have held fast to positive teachings and in so doing, even penned music to suit the time.
Trinidad and Tobago entertainer, Ziggy Rankin has released, “Father God” – a real time, unapologetic reggae anthem that speaks to the sad truth often experienced in society. “Father God we need yuh, dem never pree yuh until dem back against de wall”, Ziggy sings in a track that was self written and produced by CVR Records.
