Reggae/dancehall artiste Busy Signal says President Barack Obama's visit to Jamaica presents opportunities for the island. According to the Jamaica Love singer, he has no issues with the government spending millions to renovate sections of the Corporate Area for the president's visit because Obama deserves presidential treatment.

The artiste, who commented during a recent interview, said he has hopes of returning to the US to spread his music.

"A president deserves presidential treatment in every way. The work and preparation that the island made I see no problem with that because if a first world president is coming here it's a good thing. People make preparations for stuff like this because it's a great look for the country with Obama coming here," Busy Signal said.

Currently without a US visa, the deejay also took the opportunity to beg President Obama to return his travelling rights to the United States.

"Mi just wah tell Obama sey big up yuself, big up yu family, big up United States. Pardon the turf president, yu know wey mi mean and mek the thing work. Mi wah reach een and duh the things the right way. Wi nah get wi self inna no more trouble Obama, yu know how the thing set," he said.


Busy Signal's mentor Bounty Killer also commented on social media that he wants to ask Obama to return his United States visa.

"The world boss is here mi a guh deh guh ask him bout my visa yo," he said.

Several dancehall and reggae artistes are currently without United States visas, and are forced to stick to European, Caribbean and South African markets. Recording artiste Tommy Lee Sparta also made a public plea at Sting, to be issued a visa.
