Fiyah Marshall – Til De Sun

Til De Sun – Latest music video – Filmed in Bermuda Directed and produced by Fiyah Marshall & Hot Fiyah Sounds Ent.  Follow on instagram @fiyah_marshall

Booze, soca and bikini-clad women ­— it’s party time in Fiyah Marshall’s latest music video. Til De Sun, released today on YouTube, celebrates young and sexy Bermuda.

“It’s Bermuda like you’ve never seen it before,” said artist Mr Marshall whose real name is Alex Marshall.

Til De Sun - Fiyah Marshall is an artist quickly on the rise that you can't ignore! From opening for many major artists and collabing with major artists to his unique blend of Reggae Hip Hop & mainstream undertones, you can be assured you will big things from him!

Mr Marshall is well known for hits such as Take You Away and Got The Feeling, and this is his fourth music video highlighting Bermuda.

“This latest song is about how Bermudians love to party until the sun comes up,” he said.

Fiyah Marshall – Til De Sun

He’s hoping that Til De Sun will draw visitors, and become an anthem for holidays such as May 24, Cup Match and carnival events.

Til de Sun will be available for download on June 3 on iTunes and other popular music download sites.

This week The Royal Gazette spoke to Mr Marshall exclusively about the new release.

Q: Do you think Bermuda tourism underexploits the party scene here?

A: Definitely. I am a very passionate advocate for Bermuda and tourism, and I really wanted to do something that no one else has done.

This video of Bermuda is different because it has a soca, carnival vibe. I am trying to bring liveliness and change. I spent last summer filming the best parts of Bermuda and the partying, and put it all into one fantastic video.

Q: Tell me about the music for this.

A: I produced it myself. It is a mix up between soca and dubstep. It has a real feel-good party vibe for the summer. It’s dance music.

Q: What was the hardest thing about making this video?

A: Waiting. I can usually do videos relatively quickly. I do the production myself and directing, but I have to wait for all the different holidays and then come back and edit.

Q: If you’re doing all this during the holidays I guess you don’t get much chance to party yourself?

A: I do a little bit. I usually spend two or three hours knocking out the film side first and then get to enjoy the rest.

Q: What do you plan to do this May 24?

A: I’ll probably be performing on a truck during the parade again and then I will be shooting again.

Q: What has been your most popular song?

A: That was Never Stop in 2012. In November 2012 it was the number one record in the world downloaded by DJs through the Serato Whitelabel music download site.

I thought they made a mistake when I saw that. I thought that can’t be right. That one went really well. I am excited to see what happens with this one.

Q: What was your favourite moment during the filming of Til De Sun?

A: I like putting it together and shooting different things that people don’t know how to do here. There’s a car scene in the video. I had to get 20 different cars to come out, and have them all line up.

I used a smoke machine and a fan and it looked like it was on a Hollywood movie set.

Q: What are you hoping comes out of this?

A: I hope it shows off Bermuda and hopefully catches on and people want to watch it.

Q: Are you doing anything special for Til De Sun’s release?

A: Yes, we will be holding the Private Dockside Mansion Music Video Release Party on Saturday at 5pm. See www.facebook.com/events/1734654993477051 for details.

Q: What else have you got coming up?

A: I’ll be performing in Cannes, France at the Cotton Club at Midem on June 5 and 6.

When I come back I’ll be performing at the TORC Extreme Sports Showdown afterparty on June 12. For more information on that see www.oniracingclub.com.

Protesters force closure of Bermuda’s House of Assembly

March 15, 2016 - Author: bdadmin

HAMILTON, Bermuda (CMC) — Bermuda’s House of Assembly remained closed yesterday after legislators were locked out by protesters who formed a human ring around the building in a continuing protest against government’s proposed Pathways to Status initiative.

Premier of Bermuda, Michael Dunkley.

Premier of Bermuda, Michael Dunkley.

Politicians were due to debate the controversial bill but an estimated 1,500 protesters, who stayed in the House grounds all day, demanded the status bill be withdrawn. At 6.15 pm yesterday the Rev Nicholas Tweed, spokesman for pressure group the People’s Campaign, announced that the One Bermuda Alliance (OBA) Cabinet had ‘gone home’.

He said that the Speaker of the House, Randy Horton, had said the House would reconvene on Wednesday but Tweed told protesters it did not mean they had won their fight.

“We have decided to return tomorrow (today). You have decided to return tomorrow. There’s one condition. We [will] double [or] triple the number,” he said.

There was no immediate comment from the Government.

Among the protesters was Enda Matthie, who has been on hunger strike for seven days.

Bermuda Industrial Union President Chris Furbert told the crowd, “This is not a labour issue this is a national issue.

“All we are asking for is what is just and fair. The country needs to see the bigger picture.”

Furbert said a government offer — which he did not elaborate on — had been received but rejected.

He admitted protesters were walking a thin line, but added that it was in everyone’s interest to resolve the matter.

“Let’s be patient,” he said, calling Bermuda “the laughing stock of the world right now”.

Earlier, the Bermuda Chamber of Commerce weighed in on Pathways to Status, saying it supports the legislation.

However, Chamber President John Wight said “simultaneous” efforts must also be made to address the social needs of the community.

“With the Chamber’s mission being to ‘cultivate the best environment in which all businesses can prosper’, the executive board of the Chamber of Commerce supports the concept of the proposed immigration reform legislation but stresses that there must be simultaneous measures taken to address the social needs of the community to ensure its success for all sectors of Bermuda,” Wight stated.

He added that the private sector group believes getting Bermuda’s economy and community “back on track should be the focus of our collective efforts”.

The legislation, which Wight described as a “very critical issue for all of Bermuda”, has been introduced to provide more permanence to guest workers who have met minimum threshold limits of residency in Bermuda.

“We are very sensitive to the emotion in our community over this issue.There are many struggling businesses and unemployed persons who, through no fault of their own, are barely surviving and are having difficulty supporting themselves and their families.

“We also recognise that there are deep-rooted feelings, based on historic amendments to immigration policies that have adversely impacted certain segments of our community,” Wight said.

While Wight said that it may “understandably be illogical to feel that the proposed legislation will improve the situation”, the reality is that with an ageing population and “more people drawing upon the Government’s bank account than paying into it, Bermuda must increase the numbers of people contributing to the system through increased employment and population expansion”.

More people working and living on island equates to more economic activity, he added.

“We have been very clear and consistent in our message; Chamber members, who represent all sectors of the business community, small, medium, and large, need more people in Bermuda to sell their goods and services to. Several of our members have been struggling for many years.

“The only way for these companies to measurably improve their economic circumstances is to generate more volume of sales, which can only occur if we have more people in Bermuda.

“The discussion, therefore, should not be ‘if’ Bermuda needs more residents. The discussion needs to be around how do we address the real and current needs in the community, increase the numbers of residents, benefit our economy and ensure the economic success of both current and new residents.

“In addition, one part of the solution we believe, has to be to attract many of those Bermudians who have left, to come back home and to prosper in a growing economy.”

Government wants to usher in the Bermuda Immigration and Protection Amendment Act 2016 that would open the door for long-term guest workers to gain permanent residency after 15 years and Bermuda status (citizenship) after 20 years but the plan has split the country.

Home Affairs Minister Michael Fahy has said amending the 1956 Immigration Act would bring Bermuda in line with the European Convention on Human Rights, generate revenue and help to address the decreasing work population.

Even though Bermuda has emerged from six years of recession the island is struggling to improve its fragile economy.

Meanwhile, Premier Michael Dunkley has revealed that civil servants took almost 38,665 sick days in the 2015/16 fiscal year at a cost of $10.6 million to the Government.
