Prime Minister Andrew Holness Dances to Teejay’s hit song, ‘Drift’

At the recent Jamaica Labour Party’s (JLP) 80th Annual Conference, Prime Minister Andrew Holness took to the dance floor, showcasing his dance moves to the hit song “Drift” by Teejay.

The impromptu dance session, captured on video and circulating widely on social media, featured the Prime Minister learning the dance routine from Jodian Myrie, Buju Banton’s daughter and Caretaker for East Central St. Andrew.

The atmosphere at the National Arena in Kingston was filled with enthusiasm as JLP supporters cheered heartily for Prime Minister Holness, who appeared to embrace the dance with confidence.

The video has sparked a range of reactions on social media, with some praising the Prime Minister for his ability to connect with the people through cultural expressions, while others criticised him for seemingly leveraging dancehall for political gain.


In the comments section of the Instagram post sharing the video, one user commended the Prime Minister, stating, “That man is human, stop coming for him every time he breaks to have fun.”

However, another user expressed skepticism, saying, “And the way him fight Dancehall… him only memba it when a politics time.”

Amid the mixed reactions, some urged fellow Jamaicans to stay focused on important issues and not to be swayed by political theatrics. “And with one video like this, Jamaicans fall to their knees again, and the government secures their votes. Stay focused Jamaica,” wrote a concerned citizen.

The JLP’s 80th Annual Conference, which commenced on Sunday, saw thousands of supporters from across the island converging at the National Arena, transforming the venue into a sea of green.

The event served as a platform for the party to discuss key political agendas and engage with its supporters.
