Iwer George is now 'The Boss'

Iwer George is now 'The Boss'
By Michael Mondezie (Trinidad Express)


Veteran soca star Neil "Iwer" George has finally revealed his new stage name.

George told a gathering of about 2,000 fans that he would now be known as "The Boss" during his concert appearance at the Soca for Summer show held on Saturday night at the Jean Pierre Complex, Mucurapo.

The name isn't really that surprising since it's the title his employees at 91.9 Soca Bashment would have known him as for the past two years.

On Saturday night, his fans seemed a bit disappointed with his choice.

"I was expecting something grander, but if the man choose that we have to go with that because he really is the boss," one young fan told the Express following the announcement.

Iwer is no stranger to self-reinvention.

The Point Fortin-born artiste has had several image and name changes during an almost three-decade career.

He was dubbed the "bum bum man" in the late 80s following the release of several songs glorifying the female behind, the most memorable of which being "Bottom in the Road", which was banned on several local radio stations.

In the late 90s he again came under fire for a lack of creativity following the release of "Hand, Hand".

Iwer repeated the word hand 36 times in the chorus of the song that went on to be a Carnival hit in 2000.

He was dubbed "Mr Hand, Hand, Hand" that year.

He subsequently became known as "The Big Man in the Business" following his recent domination of the Soca Monarch competition and last year he was known as "Mr Fete After Fete".

In an ever-evolving entertainment industry it's anyone's guess as to exactly how long his new name will last but for C2K8 all comers should be wary of the Soca Boss.

BRUCE!!!!!!!!!!!           ...  oh sorry wrong guy.

Didn't Rick Springfield write a song "Don't call me Bruce"? If this name flies Iwer might have to cover that tune.

Who de hell studying lyrics? Be real. People want to hear jump and wine....is jump and wine dey go get in dey pwefen. If iwer wasnt giving de people what dey want.......he woulda suffer. When iwer now start....he did have some serious songs...buh wasnt getting no airplay. In fact he write a tune de other day....
Quote
"Some people feel i cant sing calypso...how is only jump up and hand i know
But is me who say "times hard...time to work harder.....two weeks later de bank take back my car"

Iwer doh mamaguy yuh....he doh talk nonsense bout how he try to transcend heself as a artiste etc........he go in de studio...spend a 10 minutes.....come out....mash up fete....and he happy. De man have a grocery...a radio station......and he investing he paper. Few people could hype up a crowd like iwer......and thats a fact.

Yuh know.....dis is de perfect time to start up a thread i was going to. It kinda like what i was alluding to in this thread. If iwer wasnt giving people what they wanted........then he wouldnt be making money. Look how long soca monarch took to reach 100 grand as the winners prize....and compare that to how long it took soca monarch to reach that same amount. and it not in soca alone.....it in all forms of music.....what lyrical content dancehall have dese days?Lyrical tunes like dis?

In my opinion music on de whole gone thru. And i shudder th think what could be passed off as music when i have my children. And i now hit 20.
Iwer giving people what dey want. Look at some of dem big tunes dat yuh KNOW yuh jump up for:
Quote
We Jumping....tonite we go mash up de dancehall....we jumping as if we playing basketball....we jumping like micheal jordan...(higher dan dat...) we jumping like scottie pippen...(higher dan dat...) we gonna jump up and dunk...we gonna jump up and dunk...we go jump and jump and jump and jump and....

Quote
Gimme ah bligh in de sky...gimme ah bligh in de sky...gimme a bligh in de sky...gimme a bligh in de sky....swing it over yuh head......swing it over yuh head.....

Iwer does get de crowd involved...and send dem home happy. Look at all big soca tunes...dey involved some degree of crowd participation. Dollar wine....moving to the left...footsteps....in fact is a method now that dancehall uses.....with all these retarded dances like frogback and hulahoop and ting. If dat is what dey want....is dat wha dey did want.

nah man
you go watch ah handle name Rookmin and say brotha ???
okay so umm...dis go by my last post to you

since i'm not fortunate to get it from dey horses mouth or backside, i'll still continue to say "pay the fees".  I have nothing against Iwer, some of his music didn't appeal to me and i guess the rest of TnT. Again, Big we are all entitled to like or dislike things.  right ?

I'll continue to read the papers, and hopefully there will be a story headline "Iwer paids up" OR " I doh owe nothing"

okay sista ???
take it easy
