    Although Mavado and Vybz Kartel have made their peace, Barbados' commissioner of Police is objecting to their joint performance in that country on March 27.

    In an article published in Nation News , 'Cops: Come Again', yesterday, the commissioner, Darwin Dottin, said the force was concerned about the negativity associated with both entertainers.

    "The force views this matter with concern. We have been following the developments in Jamaica in relation to these artistes and it seems clear to us that their performances seemed to be a motivation for violence," he said.

    Dottin also said that the force did not have the authority to ban artistes wishing to perform in Barbados, given the provisions of the CARICOM Treaty on freedom of movement, but he urged the organisers to 'look again'.

    The Barbados Youth Action Programme, a Government affiliate
    under the chairmanship of member of parliament Hamilton Lashley, has scheduled performances of the two Jamaican artistes for a reggae show on March 27 at the Midway House carpark, Bay Street, The City.



    Mavado's manager, Julian Jones-Griffith, was surprised when he heard about this latest development, noting that the concert is a 'peace thing'.

    "We went there in September and I know Kartel has been there after. His concert was incident-free, as our own. So, I don't understand. They let both artistes go there prior to the unity at West Kingston Jamboree," he told THE STAR.

    "As far as I know, we are looking forward to going to perform in Barbados on March 27. It's a government-endorsed event. It's a positive thing, so I don't know why the police would want to stop that."

    Jones-Griffith also noted that the artistes' visit would include them going to the island two days prior to the event to speak to students at various schools.

    But Dottin believes other methods could have been used.

    "Our crime analysts have been looking at the impact of these artistes on the youths of Barbados, drawing attention to the violent lyrics and the disrespect for women."

    He continued: "I've had some calls and I questioned whether there are not different methods that we can use to reach the young people in Barbados; whether these are the correct role models. We have a number of role models [who] can reach out to our students to teach them to be productive and responsible citizens."

    An email was sent to Vybz Kartel but he did not respond up to press time. And calls to his publicist's mobile phone went unanswered.

    Mavado and Vybz Kartel were involved in a bitter feud since 2006, after Kartel left the Alliance.

    In February 2007, then Deputy Commissioner of Police, Mark Shields, and Kimani Robinson, former principal of RE TV, held a press conference at The Jamaica Pegasus hotel with both deejays, but the feud continued soon after.

    Both artistes hurled insults at each other in songs, eventually clashing at Sting in 2008. There were also violent incidents associated with their feud. But late last year, the two artistes surprised the country when they performed together at West Kingston Jamboree, signalling an end to their rivalry.

    Here in SD its all hippies and college kids with dreds mashing out to some Don Carlos or something, which is dope dont get me wrong but it dont have the same energy, I saw Sizzla a few years back and he was talking to the crowd telling them to put up lighters, raise they hands or chant back and they just looked at him like he was speaking nonsense hahaha aint the same....sigh


    You should get a cam and start documenting some of these dances (if it dont get you murked lol)
