Foota Hype has blasted Prime Minister of Jamaica Andrew Holness and Minister of Entertainment Olivia “Babsy” Grange for failing to implement recommendations which were made by the Prime Minister himself, two years ago. Foota says the plan would’ve solved the myriad of problems plaguing the Dancehall music industry.
Foota was responding on his Instagram live fed recently after seeing video posts of the Prime Minister commenting on the state of Dancehall at a function in Kingston on Sunday, which he said were being shared by some very foolish members of the Dancehall fraternity.
In the video, the Prime Minister said that as far back as 2017, he had discussions with Babsy regarding the establishment of entertainment zones which he labeled “Creative Oases.” These zones would have all the amenities of modern entertainment venues and where Reggae and Dancehall events would be able to be held 24 hours per day.
The PM’s comment had come against the background of heightened complaints by members of the Dancehall fraternity about the issue of the early lockdown of entertainment events within Kingston.
Foota took exception to the fact that the Prime Minister had only said he “heard the cries” of the dancehall fraternity, but did not state what he would be doing to solve the problem. Nevertheless, selectors and deejays were praising him for his useless words.
“Him seh him propose suppm to Babsy two years ago. Now dis a di problem wid our Dancehall people dem; dem no listen. You haffi listen. Him propose suppm to Babsy two years ago. Him say to Babsy, allow wi fi have wi five and six a clack a mawnin ting, but let’s have designated zones. Das wha him seh inna him speech yuh nuh,” Foota explained.
“You (Prime Minister) suggested that to Babsy two years ago. So am I to believe that Babsy Grange totally ignored your suggestion, or am I to believe that you never revisited that suggestion any at all? Because if it was that important to you from two years ago, we wouldn’t be having this problem two years later. But oonu no teck weh wi a deal wid serious. So when you tell Babsy dat, Babsy no do nuttn, and you no ensure seh she do nuttn. So yo gi wi a speech two years ago, an yo come back now and gi wi di same speech two years lata,” the selector declared.
The Calabar old boy ripped into Holness and Grange, claiming that their inaction had resulted in the problem getting out of control.
“Wi not even get one percent a progress towards wha yo suggest to Babsy. Suh now now wi have di same problem at a higher level. So weh oonu a put up video an a celebrate and bout how ‘we are aware of your needs and your cry’? Wi no need yo fi be aware; oonu been aware long time!” he said.
“Wi no get no adjustment inna di time; wi no get no venue; wi no get no zone wi no get nuttn. A di likkle clown dem weh inna music a gwaan like yo seh suppm good; yo no seh nuttn to wi all now Andrew! Yo know a dat wi waa hear; seh wi fi go until five and six a clack. So yuh a gi wi speech widout action,” the annoyed selector said.
Nick Young Details How Iggy Azalea Cost Him A Shot At Rihanna
Nick Young said he turned down Rihanna for Iggy Azalea and now he is punching air.
Basketball player Nick Young once attempted to shoot his shot at the fabulous Rihanna by showing off his stellar basketball skills. However, his relationship at the time with rapper Iggy Azalea prevented him from acting on it. Young isn’t just a famous basketball player; he is also renowned inside hip hop circles thanks in part to his highly publicized and controversial relationship with Iggy Azalea as well as his performance on the court. The pair dated for years and eventually got engaged, however, things came to a bitter end after Nick confessed to cheating on Iggy. The confession was made via cell phone footage posted by his former teammate D’Angelo Russell, and it caused quite the scandal.
Recently during a “Certified Buckets” podcast hosted by Chiney Ogwumike and Sarunas J. Jackson, Nick Young detailed a past encounter with Rihanna, whom he claimed was also interested in hooking up with him. The whole thing happened back in 2014 after he saw the pop beauty sitting court-side at one of his games held at the Staples Center. This prompted Nick to play his heart out, hoping to impress the Bajan pop star.
“I had a good game, so they asked me why … and I said, you know, Rihanna was there,” the NBA baller said (via TMZ). She hit me back, but I couldn’t go full throttle with it because I was like, in the beginning, stages of my relationship with Iggy.” Host Sarunas J Jackson was in shock and disbelief at Nick’s statements saying that he could’ve been king or first man of Barbados right now. Of course, there isn’t such a thing as king of Barbados, and Rihanna is certainly not a politician.
Nick surprisingly didn’t speak ill of Iggy and spoke good of their relationship, “I think I did pretty good, though. It worked out for a little bit.” To which the host responded, “She iight.”
Nick isn’t suffering and wallowing after his break up with Iggy Azalea and has since reconciled with his baby mama, Keonna Green. Young will forever reminisce about his chance with the wealthiest female musician in the world, RiRi. Rihanna has done quite good for herself as well as she is currently worth $600 million and has been dating billionaire, Hassan Jemeel for two years. Pregnancy rumors have been circulating, but she has been quickly killing them at every turn.
But what a beautiful couple she and Nick would have made. Fans can dream, can’t we?
