And They Are Still Dutty Wine’n

Posted by thelense on Wednesday, October 15, 2008

I remember when the Dutty Wine dance first came out. Or rather I remember when I first saw it. I was browsing through youtube one day in 2006 and saw a girl doing an odd dance. Now despite me finding the dance odd I still thought she looked hott doing it so I was like hmm maybe it has a song to go with it. Long story short Dutty Wine went on to become one of the biggest songs and dances on FAMU campus Fall of 2006. Anywhere and everywhere you looked or didn’t look there was a contest going on. It was huge, it was everywhere, it was great. Apparently its making a resurgence on campus’s across the nation. Last Set Friday (the 10th) featured a sporadic Dutty Wine battle. I believe the girls dancing are in Kollage (FSU Dance Group). Of course I had my camera and the rest is history.

Note: The beat to the song is still as fiyah as ever though!

Set Friday Presents Random Singing

Posted by thelense on Wednesday, October 15, 2008

I know i’m a little late getting around to the posts lately but hey that’s life. And as a full time student taking 18 hours I have a lot of life going on right now. Anyways, things were really weird last Set Friday (the 10th). For starters there weren’t that many people out. Odd considering we had just won a football game the day before. Go Rattler Football! But yeah the set was a little thin. After not hearing much “bend over music” as one girl proclaimed before she song her inspired song thing. But yeah the SET ended up being an open mic day for aspiring, amateur, part time singers? Some of the singers were really good as you will see in my video. Again only at FAMU. Of course “Oh Happy Day” from Sister Act II somehow worked its way into the mix and like any good black school worth its weight FAMU students went crazy and broke out into song and even did their best church clap.

Posted by thelense on Saturday, September 20, 2008

So down here at FAMU there is this amazing event called “set friday”. Its held every friday and some people consider it christmas year round. Usually the set is where people go to juk and buy different fleamarket ish products, but every now and then there is a performance section. And today’s set friday was one of those days. Luckily I was there to capture it. University celebrity Cnote introduced his new dancing team “The Diamonds” and well they shut it down.

Show up, Show out, and Showcase!!
