Dancehall superstar Sean Paul’s dream of turning Kingston, into a Music Tourist City is getting closer to fruition. 🎼
Dancehall superstar Sean Paul’s vision for the Government of Jamaica to develop Kingston, Jamaica’s capital earning billions of dollars for Jamaicans involved in the music industry, seems to be making some headway towards reality.
“An I keep saying, what I want from this Government is a Mento Yard Boulevard, Ska Corner; wi waan si wen yuh go round deh pure Ska Bar and people guh round deh wid dem afro an dem bell foot pants and tourists can come off on a boat weh dem have inna di harbor (Port Royal) deh and come ova, and guh to Reggae Road an Dancehall Drive and those things,” the Temperature artist had declared at the time, during the interview with Wesley Burger.
Recently, special development zone fuelled by Jamaican music is the focal point of an initiative to reposition Downtown Kingston, via a multi-million dollar public-private partnership, supported by the Jamaica Tourist Board and the Tourism Enhancement Fund, which have “approved the start of the project in principle”.
