Etana Issues Statement After ER Interview Blacklash.


On Friday September 23rd, I was featured on Entertainment Report (ER) hosted by Mr. Anthony Miller aired on Television Jamaica (TVJ).


Following the interview, statements I made regarding social injustices and politics were not well received by fans, friends and supporters, therefore it's my duty, and out of respect for you to clarify such statements; but most importantly, if I have offended anyone, I use this opportunity to sincerely apologize.

Let me first state that I sat for over 2hrs to facilitate the interview with Mr. Miller, which was then edited to under 7min, with that said, much of my thoughts and explanations were not broadcasted, which is understandable taking into consideration the nature of the program and media.

I take this opportunity, however, to state clearly that I am not prejudice, and I do not believe in racial profiling nor any form of discriminatory approaches against anyone or any group of people. It is my belief that for years we have been underserved by individuals who we have elected to serve us and it's time we (as a people) recognize the need to bring these issues to the fore.

My music is for the world; it's for people, no matter their ages, from all walks of life. My music doesn't divide. My music don't segregate. It's about unity and an appreciation for all people, while highlighting the challenges we face as a collective.

I'm forever thankful for the support you have all given to me over the years, it's because of your love and support I am who I am.

So in my opinion,
by: Everad Lewis

So in my opinion, Etana does sound like an idiot and a bigot in her defense of Trump and trying to justify all the hatred that Trump has been spewing and continues to spew.

However, the ones who are beating her up because she said she would rather dial 911 in America than 119 in Jamaica, you are a bigger hypocrite than Etana.

Plus Etana is not the first, In "Rain Showers", didn't Sizzla chant:
Notice I burn even their church
Mi burn Jamaica a that Babylon corrupt and curse
