Happy People by Iwer George | Soca 2024

Well, well, well... it's Iwer again, and this time he found himself in a water-drenched situation because of the use of the national anthem for his latest music endeavor titled "Happy People." This song was released on November 17, 2023, for the upcoming 2024 carnival celebrations. "Happy People" is a production of KMC (Ken Marlon Charles) and written by KMC and Iwer. 

It goes without saying that the audience was bound to be outraged by his use of the national anthem to open his song. But according to the national publication, Trinidad Express, things got interesting, leading to the Prime Minister commenting on the song. The news outlet reported that the Prime Minister of the country, Dr. Keith Rowley stated: "I would rather the national anthem not be treated that way.”

Iwer and his production team must have known that using the anthem would have created a controversial situation, and would negatively impact many in the general public and then some. Well, well, well, he got the message and re-released the song without the anthem. Good for Iwer, and now we move on and await his next 'Water' song.

The rest is up to you. The voice of the people will determine the outcome—the success or failure—of the much-talked-about song by KMC and Iwer. Love it or hate it. What is your opinion?
