I’m laughing at this dumb government who have never erected a live music venue in honour of reggae music even though it is the only reason why people is still visiting this beautiful island of bankruptcy. I’m laughing because I know something that ‘they don’t know’.”

This is what she wrote on Instagram:
“I love your music and your passion; however, I want to remind you that both yourself and other artistes are benefiting today from the trade agreements now in place for cultural and creative services. Just a moment ago, I concluded a meeting on foreign trade for cultural services, as already many of our cultural goods have zero tariffs for international trade. I have personally called you and left messages on your phone – and never get a response – because I would like to hear your ideas that can be implemented. Stop blaming and lumping ‘all’ politicians together, it is unfair and untrue. Blessed love.”
