BUJU Banton is bashing the wearing of masks and urging Jamaicans to be mindful of lies as the country battles the COVID-19.
The deejay posted his views in a three-video tirade to his 1.2 million followers on Instagram yesterday.
“Wi waan done with this mask-wearing bull*** inna Jamaica. Who fi dead a go dead, an’ who nah go dead ah fi jus’ live,” he said.
“Who are these intellectual fools telling us how to live our lives? If you’re so smart, why haven’t you found the cure for cancer? You are touting a line and putting the Jamaican people in abject fear and driving us all to poverty. What have you done for all those who you have laid off and mek dem business close early? Jamaican people need to wake up. Mi nah wear no mask ’cause mask nuh mek fi man… Free mi people, free my people now,” he continued.
According to the World Health Organization, wearing a mask, especially when persons cannot social distance six feet, limits the risk of getting COVID-19.
The artiste also unloaded on the pandemic which has killed over 1.13 million people worldwide.
“Don’t you see that they have been lying to us for all this time? Why should we believe them now? How ironic it is that this virus act as if it is more intelligent than man?” he said.
