  1. Just so aa de man was out and now he is in who determines his participation. We need a Fernando to decide this cannot just be imposed on us lol.

  2. Fire bun Herb Black,,, as rasta…….ridiculing the ordinary folks instead of crafting the kaiso to educate them about the subject ………both sides have these ordinary folks that cannot pronounce words properly or understand issues……That’s what the politicians love so that they can continue to fool the ordinary folks. As roots man,,,,,, you fell in the trap. You can never hear a kaiso like that from the likes of Black Stallion.

  3. Enlightenment herb black . Real Rasta man cannot be fooled . Most people looked down at the Rasta man but they are the treasures left in creation. One love brother . Don’t always look at the step down my Gee use your neck to turn your head .on top there is something named the elevator. always known you to be a wise one. Live up Rasta fari. Jah guide.
