Local ensemble, Signal Band, has released its first video entitled, “Take over the World.”
The video speaks of and shows the potential of the Bouyon genre to dominate foreign markets due to its high energy and lyrical content with the ultimate goal “of taking over the world.”
It is expected to send out the message that through unity Bouyon will be a stronger force and will be able to cross the borders and therefore a call is made to other bands and artistes to endorse the mission to deliver proper lyrics and productions that can be marketed across the globe.
The song was written and performed by Sheldon “Shelly” Alfred and Signal Band.
The video shot and edited by Judah Jno Baptiste of Yw3TV.
Other artistes and bands who took part in the video endeavour by the group include WCK, Triple Kay, Asa Bantan, Kros Vybz, Digital Vybz, Outta, DiYoute and Sickberry.
