Reggae superstar Buju Banton is being harshly criticised following comments he made regarding mask wearing recently.
Banton voiced his opinion on masked wearing via videos he shared on Instagram yesterday.
In the first video he posted, the entertainer said: “Wi waan done wid dis mask wearing bulls**t inna Jamaica. Who fi dead aguh dead and who nah dead haffi juss live. Wi tired a you intellectual fools trying to tell us how to live our lives. You are so smart why you haven’t found the cure for cancer?”
Banton also appeared to accuse persons in positions of power of causing the masses to be in abject fear and of driving people into poverty saying:
“What have you done for all those who you have laid off and mek dem business close early? Jamaican people need to wake up….Mi nah wear nuh mask…Mask nuh mek fi man.”
His utterances prompted varying reactions from the public but the majority persons who commented on his video appeared to take issue with his stance.
One user commented: “Fool dem tek ppl fah but who have eyes mek dem see and who have ears mek dem hear…words of wisdom🙏🏾”
