Youth and Culture Minister Lisa Hanna seems to be trying her very best to connect with today’s youths by delivering a positive message in a form that they can appreciate.This was evident from her recent instagram post where she quoted lyrics from the incarcerated Dancehall artiste Vybz Kartel. It can be said that Vybz is one of Jamaica’s most provocative and controversial artiste but during the course of his career he has managed to produce several positive songs filled with inspiration messages which includes“School”, which Minister Lisa Hanna decided to directly quote from.
The police are reporting that they have begun a probe into the fatal shooting of a correctional officer on main street Bog Walk, St Catherine last night.The deceased has been identified as 22-year-old Roman Bent of Ackels district, Kitson Town, in the parish, and is said to have worked at the St Catherine Adult Correctional Facility.
Reports from the police are that about 10:00 pm, there was an altercation between Bent and two members of the Jamaica Defence Force (JDF) during which he was shot. He was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead.
The police say that the matter has been reported to the Independent Commission of Investigations (INDECOM).
Businessman Corey Todd has responded to the allegations levelled at him last month by artiste manager Shelly Curran that he beat artisteDevin di Dakta with a belt over a diss song.
“My question is : was Shelly Curran there? The answer is no and when she was told that Devin sexually assaulted a dancer, her reply was: “my Devin would never do that” and then said she had to go,” the statement read.
Todd admitted that security personnel had to forcibly remove Devin Di Dakta from the Taboo Gentlemen’s
“I’ve known Shelly for a few years and I’m very surprised by her antics. She then called me back very hysterically and emotionally saying ‘you made 20 people beat Devin, and I’m like Shelly, listen to yourself and at that point I just hung up because I knew she was trying to cover for him as a artiste manger or something else. I’m not sure but charges have been filled by the dancer he violated. Was he thrown out the club? Yes, and anyone who did what he did would be kicked out. Yes, he was forcibly removed from the compound which security has the right to do,” he said.
