Bajan men sweet on Guyanese women

Nalini Sukhram, the voice behind GT Advice.

SANKA PRICE: IT'S TRUE: Bajan men love Guyanese women. And Bajan women tend to be somewhat suspicious of Guyanese women. Just ask Nalini Sukhram, the voice behind GT Advice. Wherever she goes in Barbados, men want to befriend her. "If I pass a hundred men for the day, 99 want to know my name or want my phone number. I don't know what it is," she said.

Laughing, she added: "If I am leaving and going somewhere, someone wants to take me somewhere. The men are something else. . . Oh my God!" In contrasts sometimes when she speaks to women, though they answer some "look at you funny", said Nalini, better known as Lisa. That said, Nalini loves it here and gets on with everybody. "I have a lot of Bajan friends and I love them to death," she gushed.

As for the song GT Advice which has propelled her into the spotlight, Nalini said so far the reaction to it has been pretty good. She said: "Guyanese are very supportive. No bad response as yet. I have not heard from anyone as yet, but I know outside of Barbados some people are against it. "I heard some rumours that the Bajan women kicking up a storm, but no one came and told me anything. "It is just fun, I would like someone to reply."

  1. Guyanese women are the "cream of the crop" of the Caribbean.
