Outcry against state radio, TV calypso ban; gov’t enquiring

February22, 2013 – Demerara Waves

At least two prominent Guyanese singers on Friday expressed disappointment and fear at a decision to ban the 2013 calypsos from the airwaves of the state-owned National Communications Network (NCN).

Calypso Monarch, Lester ‘De Professor’ Charles told Demerara Waves Online News (www.demwaves.com) that he was “hurt” by the state broadcaster’s decision, particularly since an audition had been conducted under the auspices of the Ministry of Culture.

Charles assured that he had not set out to offend anyone with his song, ‘God Don’t Sleep’, that sought to reflect the ordinary Guyanese expressions of issues and events in the news. “I respect all of our politicians as to whether they are not my favourite,” said. [more]
