Lisa Hanna has given Rygin King her stamp of approval.
After his breakout performance at Reggae Sumfest 2018, the Dancehall artist has emerged as possibly the most talked about Dancehall act for 2018 and has now landed the approval of a Member Of Parliament.
Lisa Hanna recently took to Instagram to shar a picture of herself with a line from the deejay’s hit track “Tuff.”
“If yuh nuh trouble mi, mi nah trouble yuh,” she captioned her picture.
However, some music fans were not overly enthused by politician’s endorsement. They clearly have not forgiven the former beauty queen for her scathing criticism of Dancehall superstar Vybz Kartel.
“Kmt…until she ready fi blame the artiste dem fi di crime rate caan tame politician,” one fan wrote.
“Then inna the next breath u soon see her a bash dancehall m typical hypocritical politician. Use dancehall fi get a hype but hate it same time,” another commented.
In 2017, Lisa Hanna was was blasted by fans after she called for Vybz Kartel’s music to be banned from airwaves.
This is not the first time a Jamaican politician has given their public approval to a Dancehall act. Prime Minister Andrew Holness famously praised Mavado’s 2017 hit “Fresh Cash” during a political address.
