Bounty wants Gov’t to stop compress the music.. Pushes for entertainment Zones

Dancehaller Bounty Killer don’t like whats going on for dancehall and reggae in the Country, infact the Alliance deejay insist that the government of Jamaican should do more to help dancehall music and stop doing so much to shun the genre by blaming high crime rate on it and limiting dancehall sessions in the country.

Yesterday while in an interview with the Jamaica STAR, Killa said the Government should, at the very least, move to establish entertainment zones.

“Mek mi tell dem if dancehall ago be of any support or assistance to society dem afi assist dancehall first. Stop compress the music.

“If a Reggae Month, at least this month yuh supposed to can breath. Every street dance lock off fi this month same way. So why it is Reggae Month? Is like yuh deh a Brazil a tell dem say don’t kick ball on the street and it’s the most important thing for dem social development and dem culture.
