“When we reach a Jamaica, walk offa the plan come straight round to immigration, reach to the immigration officer I hand her my paper, she look on it and say oh Amsterdam,” he said.
“When I was going through nobody stop me and say well you know say we have a quarantine thing a gwaan. Nobody said that to me,” he explained. According to the deejay, he went straight home and has been practicing self-quarantine as suggested by the government.
