SIR RUEL WAS BANNED BY HERR FREUNDEL – “NOT MY VOTE” (SOCIAL COMMENTARY) CROP-OVER 2017 BARBADOS

CALYPSONIAN CHAD ‘SIR RUEL’ BOWEN is singing the blues after both the Caribbean Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) and Voice Of Barbados VOB) pulled the plug on two of his social commentaries.

“I have two political songs – Run For Cover, written by Nick Joseph, and Not My Vote written by Invader. CBC has banned both but VOB has only banned Not My Vote,” he lamented.

“I want to take this opportunity to say thank you to all those who shared this song. Thanks for your support and kind words of encouragement do continue to share its over 10,000 views already please keep it going!”

Sir Ruel said Not My Vote was one of songs for judging in the Pic-O-De-Crop competition.

“I sang it opening night of House Of Soca tent and I also performed it last week. I only knew it was banned when I went to (CBC’s) Q In The Community to perform and promote my tent and the organiser asked me which songs I was singing. I told him Not My Vote and he said you can’t perform that; CBC has banned it.”
