Female Reggae Etana has finally broken her silence following months of backlash from some fans after she was granted funds by the Jamaican government in aid of her promotional North American tour.
The soulful Reggae crooner, who is currently engaged in a 38-date tour across North America promoting her fifth studio album, “Reggae Forever,” has finally broken her silence since she was heavily criticised by some fans.
Some fans were seemingly not too pleased with the entertainer after it was revealed that the Jamaican government gifted her a US$5,000 grant supporting her promotional tour with Hawaiian reggae star J Boog.
The move was heavily scrutinised by some fans on social media, who claimed the grant should to other Jamaican acts who actually need it.
Insiders claim that much of the backlash is actually rooted in fans failure to forgive the singer for her comments during the US presidential elections, where she infamously endorsed Trump.
Etana has since expressed regret towards making any comments on the matter at the time, as it may have been insensitive to some of her fans, but she believes her statements were largely taken out of context and overblown.
According to the Reggae superstar, she is currently only focused on positive vibes as “who don’t like yuh yesterday not going to like you today, no matter what yuh do.”
Etana’s 14-track set Reggae Forever is scheduled to be released on March 8 and will be distributed by Tad’s International Record.
