  1. Well when you look at these top celebrities most of their songs had fowl language and they do make it to the top. I dont see why these boys are trying to make something out of themselves and we want to look at all the negatives in it. We can advise them to try be careful with the other song that will be coming out but we can't fight them down. Well done boys.

  2. The dennery segment music is pulsating and makes you move. As a musician the vibe is irresistible. Some of the lyrics are too raw and the videos too crass. A visitor said the people acted like monkeys. In the videos. The guys need to be more subtle.We need to raise the standard of lyrics and videos before promoting it overseas. First impressions are important. We need to make a good first impression or we lose out.

  3. Supporter of Dennery Segment

    Recently Sarah Flood Beaubrun created a storm in the media and in parliament about the Dennery segment being played at a school's sports meet. Despite all the evidence showing that this never happened, she demanded that the Ministry of Education discipline the principal and Staff. She was relentless in her efforts. I really wish to know how she feels about the government led by her Boss and hand-holding- partner-in -Mexico supporting the promoting of the same thing she called filth. Or will she subdue her holier-than -thou -art moralizing on this occasion.

    • Lmfao... well the government is promoting it. Also, Dennery segment does promote debauchery.

      As you can see maam, you have 10 dislikes. If its one thing you must learn, its that most St. Lucians hate the truth and accountability. We will promote this filth as part of our "culture" then express genuine shock and bewilderment when children engage in those very acts we so enthusiastically promote.

      At this point, I don't know if its mass delusion or just willful stupidity.
