Minster Granges releases statement on Rio gala and that 'spice-y' affair

No Comments

After the brouhaha in the wake of Spice's controversial performance at the high profile gala ot honour Jamaica's athletes in Rio, the Minister of Culture had this to say:

"I recognize dancehall as an important Jamaican music genre. In that regard, I note some of the comments directed at Spice for her performance on Saturday night. I do not offer a defence for Spice who is a talented and bright performer, fully capable of producing lyrics in celebration of our athletic heroes. I would however, caution against the issue of vitriolic comment and a rush to judgement in this matter.

Most things went well but a few very important things did not on this occasion. Like our athletes we will review, improve and keep pushing ourselves to higher levels of performance."
