tyga-jamaica.jpgAmerican rapper Tyga is facing tremendous backlash on social media following the release of his latest video. The visuals for the single 1 of 1 was shot in Duhaney Park some weeks ago.

Tyga took to social media sharing snippets of the video shoot all while embracing his Jamaican heritage.

The rapper is however being blasted for not using a Jamaican model as his lead girl.

Some even dogged his love interest who is of German and Pakistani descent for wearing bantu knots (chiney bumps), made popular by black women.

Tyga is also facing criticism for the song itself which sounds very similar to the song Controlla done by Canadian rapper Drake.

Meanwhile, dancehall artiste Mr. Vegas is the only one winning in the debate over the single as his 2005 hit Ducky was sampled in Tyga's song.
