Jamaica is the birthplace of several globally recognised musical genres -mento, dub, ska, rocksteady, reggae and dancehall.

“When you go to places like the Youth View Awards it is so Americanised. You see them dancing to Nicki Minaj and yu naah guh to American Awards guh see dem a dance to Super Cat tunes – other art forms are infiltrating the music and they come from our same creation, but most artistes don’t know that, it’s like Jamaica is the mother of all music.
