(SNO) – A dasheen-throwing incident during a Castries brawl last weekend has attracted not only memes, but Dennery Segment artistes.
A video recording of the incident, which reportedly occurred on Saturday, July 7, went viral after it was posted on social media.
A heated argument between a female vendor and another female quickly escalated with other persons joining the fight and dasheen being used as ‘missiles’.
Many persons have found it amusing that dasheen was used as a weapon of choice, so much so that artistes such as Kelly B and D-Boy have jumped on the opportunity to entertain through music.
Kelly B, whose real name is Kelly Kenson Blondell, told St. Lucia News Online that “Lucian Dennery Segment” artistes are usually “quick” to make songs on what’s happening in Saint Lucia, and here is the latest one – ‘The Dasheen Song’ featuring D-Boy:
Persons have also used a song titled ‘Hard Food’ released about two years ago by D-Boy to make fun of the incident:
