L.A Lewis Allegedly Offered $100 Thousand To Skip MP Race

The powers that be does not want the graffiti artist making a mockery of the electoral process.

Dancehall artist LA Lewis has allegedly been offered JM$100 thousand dollars in cash not to run for MP for the West Kingston seat.

According to the 7 Star General, someone left the money on his doorstep just a week after making it known that he will be going into politics. Lewis said a letter accompanied the money, urging him not to make a mockery of the electoral process & inform the media that he has no interest in politics, given that he has no prior political experience.

Despite the offer, Lewis said has no intention to stop his campaign for the West Kingston seat, “I am just waiting on approval from the General Secretary.”

Lewis is facing prosecution and a JM$70,000 fine for several graffiti in the Kingston area.

  1. la.lewis is a god , songs he’s sang, written, produced or even been featured in. But you know who LA Lewis is. You know either the name, the face, the voice, the logo or probably even all the above. You know the slogan “SEVVVN!” and if I say “sobolious” you know where it originated.

    It’s not an opinion, but a fact that LA Lewis has cemented himself in the mind of more or less every Jamaican.u.s.a canada.uk japan within a generation, and he’s done it for little or nothing! He’s been able to do what Digicel, Claro, LIME, KFC, Burger King and more spend million of dollars annually trying to. Starting from the ground up, he’s turned himself into a brand (the VALUE of that brand is a different topic).
    Like it or not, LA Lewis can get your attention.

    Radio shows, TV shows, print publications have all at one point or another featured LA Lewis. In fact not only has he just been in them, he’s pulled in what I would consider to be a huge audience to shows which have promoted that they’ll feature LA Lewis. Again, the fact that he’s been able to do this without spending any significant money, without producing any significant music or anything else, speaks to his ability to promote his brand. i.e. himself. If he had been born rich and done the same thing, he would be the equivalent of the Jamaican Kim Kardashian. Right now, if Fame FM, or Ragashanti were to say they were going to do a show with LA Lewis, I guarantee people would listen. It doesn’t matter WHY you listen, what matters (to the station and advertisers) is that you’d listen. It’s absolutely undeniable that LA Lewis ha sa very UNIQUE personality.
    I have a test for you. ‘Uncensored’ has been airing for years on Fame Fm (in Jamaica), Do you remember the name of ONE guest aside from LA Lewis.
