Last week Youth and Culture Minister Lisa Hanna and Chronixx had a war of words on social media exchanging tweets and instagram messages. The “war” started when Chronixx mentioned “this government as dumb” in a social media posting.  See the war of words below….

Chronixx comments:

I’m laughing at the Jamaica government! And the poor people who applaud them and hang orange and green flags
outside their board houses and on trees planted on”capture land”! I’m laughing at this dumb government who
have never erected a live music venue in honor of reggae music even though it is the only reason why people is
still visiting this beautiful island of bankruptcy… I’m laughing because I know something that “they don’t know”.
Miss Hanna and Mr… I can never remember his name. I think it’s time we sit and listen what the artistes have learnt from the rest of the world.

Lisa Hanna’s response:

I love your music and your passion. However, I want to remind you, that both yourself and other artists are *benefitting
today from the trade agreements now in place for cultural and creative services. Just a moment ago I concluded a meeting
on foreign trade for cultural services as already many of our cultural goods have zero tariffs for international trade.
What we need is more young people to get involved in the business of culture. I have been putting the resources to train
our young people. Over 9000 this year. I have personally called you and left messages on your phone and never got a response.
Because I would like to hear your ideas that can be implemented. Stop blaming and lumping all politicians together.
It’s unfair and untrue. Blessed love
