Incarcerated Dancehall artist Vybz Kartel believes the COVID-19 measures that are now in place that was put together by the government of Jamaica, is just another means to basically dominate the masses and it is Slavery 2.0, he called it in an Instagram post recently.
Vybz Kartel whose given name is Adidja Azim Palmer, has always been outspoken and a known advocate for the folks in the ghetto that are usually overlooked. He also posted a video clip recently, of a woman expressing how perplexed she was about the current curfew hours. This came just after the latest announcement from Prime Minister Holness, to change the curfew hours.
Due to the added number of COVID cases across the island, the curfew will now begin at 8:00 p.m. and not 10:00 p.m. nightly and ends at 5:00 a.m. the next morning. These new changes began on Wednesday (February 10) and should end on February 24.
In the post Kartel shared, the woman said, the curfew is foolish because Corona nuh walk a day? She also said in the daytime everybody bungle up, there is a mess in town. Why should we leave the road at night? Corona nuh walk a night? She asked her questions rhetorically and she drove home her point that the implementation of a curfew at night won’t affect the spread of the virus.
On the other hand Vybz had a different rationalization and he posted his answer to the question she asked.
In his response he said he believed the system is being run by Bakras and Boasty Slaves who were Puppets for western powers and overall common criminals, he insinuated that the local government was simply following a higher command, which was the western world (Europe and Northern America) and positioned themselves as common criminals in their own society by holding back the people and restricting their ability to make a living.
He further explained that, there is not limited access to education, employment, basic stuff like roads, electricity & running water, or even our pursuit of wealth, but it’s limiting our very physical movement, disrupting the economic lifeline of the people.
The deejay summed up the restrictions as basic domination of the Masses and Slavery 2.0.
Even though the popular Deejay tends to keep things light on social media, you can expect him to tap into what’s going on in the streets from time to time and totally speak his mind on anything he sees as injustice that he feels needs his input.
