MAMA 2 DI WERL
By: Maria A. Hitchins
If you don’t have a ‘mama tune’ in your catalogue you nah say noting, it no matter what else you bring, just write two verse, a chorus a mama hook and start sing.
Sizzla’s “tank u mama”, Merciless “mama a di greatest”, and most recently Kartel and Vegas mama tributes. You no see it, dem careers never did complete even though they long been performing in the streets.
There is always that soft spot for mama, the family nurturer and caregiver to all, she at times is a soldier, back broad, ever standing tall.
But what happen to the fathers? It seems a common story dem ever missing in action, well excepting at the time of conception. I hope these artistes will break the cycle with their own kids, and stick around long after dem stop wear bibs.
Mother’s Day is one of the biggest commercial days, so I guess it’s no surprise that a mama tune can tek to di charts and blaze. Maybe anyone looking for a quick comeback should do just that.
Big up my mama and yours, hopefully recession will still allow us to show appreciation and do a mini splurge.
