Well anyone who follows Dancehall music knew this was on its way. Vybz Kartel appearing lately in many shades lighter than what he was when he emerged as an artist worth a listen. He is very candid about his skin bleaching and compares it to sun tanning. Though he may have a point the effects are not the same and both detrimental health. Plus one has a far more negative message considering the history of the people.
In true form Dancehall artists have been making songs either in support or against this. Mr Vegas latest offering is pretty much to the point, no mincing words. Black and Proud. Like James Brown many years before him, Mr Vegas is keen to let you know that he is Black and proud and loves the skin he is in. So do I.
