I think all of Jamaica was watching this on Instagram Live Saturday night. Two dancehall legends engaged in a clash, Beenie Man and Bounty Killer. Apparently, Rihanna and P.Diddy tuned in, and to add to the excitement, the police intervened, as the clash exceeded the 8pm curfew.
And according to Billboard Magazine, Beenie Man emerged the winner, although others weighed in saying Bounty Killer was the winner.
This is a short piece on the Caribbean’s response to COVID-19 from the BBC World Report.
Oh no! For awhile, it appeared Jamaican Prime Minister Andrew Holness had passed away. Or one might have had that impression from a headline and picture on the JIS News Service. It was, in fact, Oliver Clarke, a “media and business mogul”, who died over the weekend. Thoughts and prayers to the family.
A lovely song and video for a Monday. Enjoy!
Jamaica’s Prime Minister, Andrew Holness, was interviewed on CNN yesterday about opening up the country’s tourism industry.
