Zimbabwe president allegedly labels Jamaicans as drunkards, weed smokers

Many Jamaicans who go overseas will tell you that they’re often confronted with the stereotypes that people from the island either smoke or drink often. Those labels apparently have been slapped on Jamaicans by one of Africa’s most revered leaders.

Robert Mugabe, the president of Zimbabwe, reportedly took shots at Jamaicans at a recent university lecture dubbed the Research and Intellectual Expo 2012. According to Zimbabwean internet news and entertainment outlet, Nehanda Radio, President Mugabe branded Jamaican men as weed smokers and drunkards.

According to the report, Mugabe allegedly described Jamaica as, "a country of marijuana smokers, where women are now taking charge since men are always sloshed (drunk).”

President Mugabe, who neither smokes nor drinks alcohol, insisted that Zimbabweans should never follow in Jamaica’s footsteps while implying that the island’s culture has negatively influenced his people. This, as speculation mounts that Mugabe has diplomatic differences with Jamaica.

The report by Nehanda Radio also stated that Mugabe, who's previously traveled to the island, intimated that Jamaicans are free to smoke marijuana despite the herb being illegal in the island while also alleging that local men prefer to sing that get an education.

"In Jamaica, they have freedom to smoke mbanje, varume vanogara vakadhakwa (men are always drunk) and universities are full of women," Mugabe allegedly said.

"The men want to sing and do not go to colleges vamwe vanobva vamonwa musoro (some are dreadlocked). Let us not go there."

The report also claims that Mugabe isn’t enthused by the praise that countless Reggae and Dancehall artistes have heaped upon him in song.

Jamaicans remember Mugabe given that the island’s most decorated artiste, Bob Marley performed at an a concert on the day when Zimbabwe gained independence in April, 1980. Marley sang the aptly titled classic, Zimbabwe at the event and people from the South African country revere Marley as one of their heroes.

Internationally acclaimed Reggae artiste, Sizzla Kalonji also performed at a birthday concert for President Mugabe in 2010, drawing much controversy in the process.

"I see him as one of my fathers from Africa," Sizzla said at the time.

"He's part of my nation, the black nation. In all that he's done - whether it's good or bad - I hope and pray that it's for the betterment of the people.”

Jamaican government officials were reportedly made aware of what Mugabe stated but have yet to comment on the matter.

Bounty Killer calls out Tommy Lee

Highly regarded Dancehall legend, Bounty Killer doesn’t seem to be one to jump on the ever-growing Tommy Lee bandwagon after the Alliance leader called out the popular Gaza artiste regarding his persona and lyrical content.

Tommy Lee rose to prominence due to his unique, intimidating sound as well as him self-proclaimed ‘gothic’ type of Dancehall in which he sometimes wears masks in his music videos. However, that ‘dark’ form of Dancehall has rubbed many industry players the wrong way, including Bounty Killer, who tweeted out a link making reference to the ‘Sparta’ persona that Tommy Lee sports.

“All a who a call dem self "SPARTA" Click this Rassc**** … !! Tell Mi If Unu A "SPARTA" Again zeen?” Bounty Killer tweeted, showing a link that ties the ‘Sparta’ concept to homosexuality.

Bounty Killer then reportedly issued a statement, through Alliance Next Generation manager, Cross Cris, explaining his reservations against Tommy Lee and other artistes who sing similar lyrics.

“Tired a dem now yow every man know a me say youths fi run the place, but nuh come chat nuh f****y bout freak and devil or demon, ago kill off some a dem, so when a man ago sing certain things him nuh think say nobody was gonna have a problem wid him argument dem, a when since u can just come inna dancehall and a bring een demon ppl freely so? how long we have we dancehall nice and pure mad mi mad to bloodc****, some a dem too brite and no big man inna dancehall naah stand up and tell dem say dat nuh accepted, ppl mi fight fi dancehall wid mi life and say f**k career dem naah mash it up enuh!” the statement read.

To make matters more intriguing, Bounty Killer even hinted that he might be seeking a clash at STING 2012 to further outline his stance.

“Christmas is 4 Christ so nuh demon or devil cyaah win we a bloodcl*** all a dem a dead a Sting!!!” he said. “Mi nuh business who waah agree or disagree, i care zero mi naah look nuh support god blessed me enuff 4 me to put it all on the line 4 his cause any thing opposed GOD’S word mi and dem bumbocl**** God have him Killer to inna the name of Jesus i wash dem in dem own blood now!!!”

Tommy Lee recently raised eyebrows with a recent single entitled Uncle Demon, which raised speculation about the ‘Gaza’ artiste’s style. Days later, his long-time mentor, Vybz Kartel released a track mirroring that concept dubbed, Daddy Devil.

Chino and Yendi engaged? Rumors fly as former beauty queen sports new ring

Is Jamaica’s newest power couple on the verge of walking down the aisle? After Yendi Phillipps donned a new ring while hosting a popular Jamaican morning TV show, rife speculation has been sparked that the former Miss Jamaica World and her boyfriend, Daniel ‘Chino’ McGregor could be getting married.

A seemingly content Phillipps co-hosted TVJ’s Smile Jamaica yesterday sporting a new ring that immediately sent social media and gossip websites into a frenzy. This news comes as Phillipps and Chino are expecting their first child together by the end of this month, several months after the couple publicly announced their big news in April. The Miss Universe 2010 and internationally acclaimed Reggae star have reportedly been dating since last year.

Chino’s road manager and videographer, Michael ‘Biggz’ Burbridge declined to comment on the speculation, insisting that he does not discuss his client’s private life.

Yendi Phillipps spoke about the possibility of being married to Chino during her pregnancy announcement five months ago, insisting that she did not believe that one required a wedding in order to experience marriage while stating that she and the second generation Reggae star were already in a blissful union.

During this summer, Chino dedicated a song to his beauty queen girlfriend entitled, Miss Universe, which featured on his brother, Stephen ‘Di Genius’ McGregor’s compilation, the Bassline Riddim.

Kareem Burrell, who turns 23 later this year, revealed that it’s been difficult trying to follow his father’s path but insists that he will keep Fattis’ legacy afloat and strengthen his family’s musical lineage.

"My dad was a perfectionist and this was highlighted through the music he produced. He was authentic and stayed true to the roots, which is why I intend to produce only clean, authentic music as he was a firm believer in good reggae/dancehall music," Burrell told the Jamaica Observer.

Living Heart hails as the third project completed by Burrell since the summer began as he released his first mixtape under the newly branded XTM Nation label entitled, Project X, in July to celebrate what would have been his father’s 58th birthday. Additionally, Burrell unveiled the Six String Cutlass Riddim which features artistes like Cali P and Mikey General as well as the aforementioned Jesse Royal and Kayla Bliss.

Philip ‘Fattis’ Burrell died on December 3 last year at the age of 57, two weeks after he reportedly suffered a mild stroke as well as a blood clot near his lungs.

Burrell’s Xterminator label has been hailed as one of Reggae most decorated outlets as he’s worked with several Reggae and Dancehall patriarchs such as Luciano, Gregory Isaacs, Cocoa Tea, Sizzla, Sanchez and Ninja Man.
