Niyorah is the artist I am hoping will get added. SNWMF is so great at bringing VI reggae to Boomville over the years it would make sense if for the 20th year that they brought him or Batch or an I Grade showcase with both!!!!! The Nazarene's would be so amazing as well.

Love this song...video is really good also. Big up Nyiorah everytime. Really nice to hear these younger artists put such an emphasis on hard work, and self sufficency. Unfortunatley these are important values that seem to be slipping away more and more generation after generation.

Did he say "lazy batty boy go away"? What do batty boys have to do with working?

dude... stop looking to be offended.. this is a music and culture rooted firmly in a specific mindset..

you know there is a chance when listening to this music that a certain philosophy may be promoted.

if you cant handle that, then limit yourself to the 'happy shiney people' reggae compilation..

but the constant beating of the 'gay rights' drum is getting old...

Nice video. Like the tune.

I'm not looking to be offended, I was looking to enjoy a good tune and was wondering what batty boys had to do with working hard. Lazy body I would agree with, WHOLEHEARTEDLY and I like the tune.

Would you rather me be lazy in my thinking and not listening to the lyrics?

Peace

just for perspective, J 72 wasn't the ONLY listener who was not sure what Niyo was saying at the start there...

but he uses the 'lazy body bwoy' later on in the tune, so... there's the answer

I thought he said batty bwoy too then relistened becaues I am huge fan of Niyo's works and personally know him to be extremely conscious and not into petty vibes. This is song aimed at men in his country and abroad who are lazy and bad minded. Batty could be the new term for lazy? Who really cares what another person does sexually as long as its not rape incest or molestation, I surely don't. it's not I mindset to be homosexual so I 'm not concerned.

West Indian artists are easy pickings though. They are a harmless and powerless demographic.

When you take your argument to Muslims and in front of the Mosque, then come talk to me.. Until then your drum beat is just fashionable posturing.

I listened to the song half a dozen times myself trying to figure out what he was saying and at first what he meant by batty. Then I to did hear more clearly that he was singing BODY bwoy.

I love this song, and I relate to the video- 17 years ago I had to provide for my own family for the first time, and haven't stopped since.

BV, I just didn't want such a good song be ridiculously ruined, right at the beginning.

Thanks for the clarification every one.

Peace

The fact of the matter is, this whole argument is based on sensitive perceptions. Many here cant wait to parse out some ''offensive"lyric and report back to the forum.. Or even worse, to passport officials.

This is a foolish statement. People here aren't running to passport officials cuz of some "offensive" lyric...SMH

Give thanks for the support of the video! Just to confirm - as some indicated - he is saying "Lazy BODY boy".

This song is resonating strong here in the VI... please spread it around. And big ups to Irie Vibrations for the BIG riddim! Check it on iTunes here:

it's foolish to those who cover their eyes/ears and pretend a certain agenda is not afoot.

in any case, a simple lyrics query was all that was needed.. adding more comment to the thing, in the form of a false interpretation, is extremely harmful in this time.

i think many on this phorum claim to uphold equal rights and justice.. but in reality they want a return to 'status quo'

they would rather throw out false interpretations and misleading associations... with hopes of taking opportunity and food from an aspiring black man. if these artists dont fall in line with popular thinking or assumed to not fall in line, they jump at the chance to 'report'... all the while finding joy and glee in seeing that man knocked down a peg.. a joy in seeing gigs being limited because of false lyrical interpretations.

its all fun and games while the chalice keeps passing from hand to hand. but let a black man move a certain way or perceived to move a certain way, then all unity bets are off.. back out on the field...

i sight these slick and careful movements a million miles away..

Funny you should write this BV because, as I read it, J_72 WAS merely asking 'a simple lyrics query'.......

my point is... why even make the possible 'homophobic' link.
especially in this time, knowing that passport allowances(na here) and bookings totally hinge on certain lyrical content.

instead, come with something like..

"what is being said here "Lazy xxxx boy"".. i cant make it out"

now the artist has to come through and clean up the false link.... because they know full well a homophobic association will limit bookings and sales.. especially on the west coast where a majority of VI fans reside. the west coast made VI music what it is today.. so it go..

maybe J72 is not meaning to take bread from a next man... i will give him that... but i will say he and many others full-joy seeing artists jumping high just to proclaim their anti-homophobic stance. because if they dont, then their food stops.. passive aggressive slave mastering at its finest, indeed..

Yep, it's all my fault for reggae artists visa problems, and the gays too....
Re: Niyorah..new video "Workday"

It is all your fault J72. What are you teaching those kids over in Nor Cal. LOL. This is a positive song! Niyorah is spreading good vibes with these lyrics. Lets return to talking about how positive of a video and message this is.

... and give BV a pass for accusing boardies of being informers and snitches. Also for playing the victim card.

I'll address this when I have more time...

@Walter, it's called the cognitive dissonance card, used by intelligence types or shills to spread disinfo, misinfo, or both.

I say... Some Never Plant yet want to Reap,
Be careful, try to look before you leap;
