If dancehall music was to be banned for a year in Jamaica, several members of our society will be affected. The ceasing of dancehall music would affect the economy negatively!
Dancehall music plays an important role in the life of many Jamaicans. Dancehall music is apart of our culture, it allows Jamaicans to express themselves. Some of the people who would be affected are:
Sound System operators, newspapers, Entertainment Coordinators,
Bloggers who provide fresh content for their readers daily,
The Peanut Man, the Jerk Chicken Man who sell to partygoers,Producers, Managers, publicists, artiste, Musicians and the list goes on.
Even thou Dancehall music is not getting its just reward in Jamaica, it has provided jobs for a lot of Jamaicans, direct and indirectly.
What would happen to the country if dancehall/reggae music was to be ceased for a year? This would lead to a rise in crime, more jobless people and loss of income for many Jamaicans.
It would also cripple the nightlife of Jamaica's tourist towns Kingston, Negril and Montego Bay.
