DETAILS: Zimbabwe President Mugabe: “Jamaicans Are Drunks, Weed Heads” Reggae Artists Reacts

Last week President Mugabe angered Jamaicans all over the world when he made some damning statements that Jamaican nationals are “drunks” and “weed smokers.”

“In Jamaica, they have freedom to smoke (men are always drunk) and universities are full of women. The men want to sing and do not go to colleges and are ruled by women,” Mugabe said.

While most reggae artists were outraged about Mugabe’s remarks, the “Dry Cry” singer struck a more diplomatic cord.

“We love the president and he should assist us as black people to overcome the phangs of hell daunted unto us by the slave masters. He should also take the time and look into our educational system and living conditions, and see how best he can help us towards the redemption and repatriation of our people to Africa,” Sizzla said after learning about Mugabe’s statement.

Do you think Sizzla should perform in Zimbabwe after President Mugabe made those controversial remarks about Jamaicans?
