Protoje took a step forward and made a bold statement concerning artists doing dubplates for politicians but not only did he make a statement he did it “Like Royalty”.
In an Instagram Tv post made by the reggae star to promote his new album “In search of Lost time” Protoje dropped a song entitled “Self Defense, Anti-Dub” produced by “Iotosh” and visually captured by Yannick Reid”.
In the song chorus Protoje belted out bold messages such as “Nuh Politician can’t beg no dubplate from me” and “look in a dem face Nah smile wid nobody”.
These were lines relating to the recent matter on whether or not artistes should be doing dubplates for politicians.
Some artistes such as Vybz Kartel, Bounty Killer and Tanya Stephens have declared their disinterest in the act but have met public scrutiny because of their statements.
The ” Ancient Future” artiste did not hesitate at all when it came to his opinion as he outlined in one of the verses of the song that the politicians attack the music in a way where they have limited street dances to four times a week.
He also alluded to the fact that the same dances have not been allowed to pass 12 o clock further solidifying his point by asking why so many dubplates are being made if that’s the case.
In the “Anti dub” song Protoje too directs the politicians to do their duty stating that any MP who does not stick to their responsibility should be voted out on election morning.
