Reggae artiste Jah Bouks says police slap made him popular
Reggae artiste Jah Bouks is thankful for a slap (box), that he received in the face at the hands of a police officer while performing at a stage show in Portland Cottage, Clarendon, earlier this week.
According to the artiste the slap (box) won him a fan base in the community.
Jah Bouks says he was performing his break out single Call Angola during the policeman's intervention. However, he did not know it was a police until he brandished a weapon.
"I was invited to an event in Portland Cottage, Clarendon, and when I started my song and mi sey 'burn the fire hot pon Babylon' one come on-stage and sey turn dat off, lock it off and gwaan a unno yard.
I continued to sing my song and I went into the line that says 'nah tek nuh chat from Babylon'. At this point he began to get boisterous and drape I up and sey Rasta boy a try yu a try dis the law - den him give mi a nice little box still," Jah Bouks said.
The artiste says he retreated upon realising that the attacker was an armed policeman.
"After mi realise sey is a ... mi a talk to, mi just whol a likkle vibe and tek mi box and easy. I was angry at first, but after mi guh home and sleep I woke up on a different meditation," he said
