The planned staging of an American Rap music concert in the middle of Crop Over is a gross disrespect to our local entertainment industry, and an insult to our National Festival.
A show of this magnitude would have a negative impact not only on calypso tents but on all our national events that are planned for the season.
We are heartened to hear our Minister of Culture expressing concern over this concert and vowing to represent the interests of the stake holders in this matter.
While we would welcome such an event at any other time of the year
The timing of this Rap event can only be seen as an insidious attempt, to generate revenue at the expense of our local calypso industry and our National Festival, and no right thinking Barbadian should support it!
