February was declared as Reggae Month in 2008 in a bid to celebrate the impact, of the musical genre on the country’s social, cultural and economic development.However, dancehall diva Tifa believes that there is not enough being done to celebrate reggae music and that the government should give dancehall artistes more support.
She expressed her thoughts during a recent interview with The Star.
“It’s always good to celebrate where we’re coming from and what we have achieved. It’s always good. I don’t think we do enough of it,” she said.
“Reggae, our music in particular, reggae, and sports has done so much worldwide. I mean, we should delve in it more often, or I feel like the Government could give us a likkle more support, especially where dancehall is concerned,” the dancehall artiste said.
In the meantime, Tifa is preparing to leave the island next week for Canada where she will tour Vancouver, Montreal, Calgary, Ottawa, Edmonton, with the seventh stop doubling up in Toronto.
