    1. yuh nuh haffi mek it luk suh bad,the fact that him deh all the way across the pond and choose reggae worse luk tuh so many of our ppl sud show how a small Island as ours as a big effect on others….mi nah knock him ntn try ntn done mek wi see wi him av tuh offer on that nite yuh just neva know ..mi love how the African beats mix wid a likkle reggae inna it

      1. Yah talk bout badmine? Why did I kiss my teeth do u know?
        I don’t understand why they speak jamaican because because they are african and should speak that he quick to say reggae is rooted in Africa which is true so why not speak un the african root language of jamaican which is twi the akan ppl from Ghana spoke that language. I just dont see the need for him to speak jamaican so I kissed my teeth

  1. I like it, big up every African, by the way is our descendent is there we as a black people come from, so go on tru my youth u ting tun up, I really loved the beat. I be looking out for you at Sting.

  2. Having been to countless African parties/functions weh ever you want call it. I will be honest for African audience it is good. They are looking for more uplifting/dancing music. A Jamaican Reggae/Dancehall fanbase this no cut it. Plain and simple. And I don’t know why when someone says that they are not interested in a certain music it has to be badmind. Music is put out there for the public to judge. Just like when a new yogurt or ice-cream flavour comes out, or just like when you deh a you work. Even if a just cleaning you do- the boss and customers can seh I don’t like the way that scent that you used smelt. It doesn’T mean everyone naw go like it. It’s a consumer product therefore consumers are allowed to express their like or dislike towards it.
