Known for having some of the most colourful and diverse people in the world, Jamaican citizens continue to trek a path for themself in the world of popularity. Today, we will look at three Jamaicans who became famous by explaining a situation they experienced.
Long before there were social media viral stars, there was Cliff Twang, a man who went viral before that phrase became commonplace today. After a casual interview with a local news station, Cliff Twang became an instant meme with his description and usage of words while he commented on the flooding of his community.
With his catchy phrase, ”nobody cannot cross it” he quickly rose to stardom and captured the Jamaican audience. However, Cliff Twang became even more famous after his interview was remade into a song, which saw him making a surprise appearance at the prestigious showpiece event, Reggae Sumfest.
Second on the viral list is female sensation Rossie, who became famous for the same reasons as Cliff Twang. Her vivid description, storytelling skills, vibrancy, and usage of words had viewers in stitches, as she shared her experience in a flood that swept through her home via an interview.
“Roosie and her family were sleeping, waking up feel water and waking up, right through the house, through the bathroom, through every door, kitchen door, every door,” Rossie explained hilariously.
Last but not least on the viral lineup is Alice, who appeared in a now-viral video cleaning up herself after defecating on herself while she was inside a cook-spot that’s famous for crab and soup.
What made Alice even more talked about was her explanation of her actions, she said, “Me drink waa hot beer wid some salt caa me seh right yah so a hurt me inna me stomach, cause me never drink no tea by me seh me ago move off it go so bruup, and the dodo come dung.”
