Government of Jamaica Investigating Ban On Dancehall Artistes by CARICOM Countries
The recent case of Vybz Kartel being banned from St. Lucia is now under investigation by the Jamaican government.
According to Wilton Dyer the ban that was imposed by the St. Lucian authorities might be a breach of the CARICOM free movement which applies to artistes, musicians and sports persons.
Several industry insiders believe its time for Jamaican artistes and musicians to unite and fight these ridiculous bans that are coming one behind the other.
The latest Caribbean country to reject Jamaican dancehall artistes from performing in their country is Trinidad & Tobago.
