Popular entertainer Chronixx recently used Twitter to voice his displeasure with Jamaica’s government.
His post on the social media platform has seemingly roused the ire of Minister of Youth and Culture – Lisa Hanna.
The minister promptly responded with a tweet of her own describing the comments made by the entertainer as untrue and unfair.
Here is an excerpt from his post:
“I’m laughing at the Jamaica government! And the poor people who applaud them and hang orange and green flags outside their board houses and on trees planted on “capture land”! I’m laughing at this dumb government who have never erected a live music venue in honor 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”. Miss Hanna and Mr…I can never remember his name. I think it’s time we sit and listen what the artistes have learnt from the rest of the world.
I love your music and your passion. However, I want to remind you, that both yourself and other artists are *benefitting 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. What we need is more young people to get involved in the business of culture. I have been putting the resources to train our young people. Over 9000 this year. I have personally called you and left messages on your phone and never got a response. Because I would like to hear your ideas that can be implemented. Stop blaming and lumping all politicians together. It’s unfair and untrue. Blessed love
Who are you in agreement with, Lisa Hanna or Chronixx? Let us know in the comments.
I think we should always be fair in our judgement of others. pic.twitter.com/oYUnfjwJBv
