The\u00a0entertainment and culture ministry has broken their silence on the rumours claiming that Etana is yet to receive her US$5,000 grant. The reports started to circulate last week Friday after popular\u00a0artiste manager\/promoter Heavy D made the announcement during\u00a0launch of the Dancehall Archives and Research Initiative\u00a0at the University of the West Indies, Mona campus in St Andrew. \u201cEtana nah go talk, but me will say it! All now she nuh get the money yet,\u201d Heavy D said. However according to Entertainment and Culture Minister Olivia \u201cBabsy\u201d Grange's director of communications,\u00a0Oliver Watt, the international recording artiste received the funds\u00a0shortly after the announcement was made back in February. Etana made history earlier this year when she became first female recipient of the grant. The singer was promised\u00a0US$5,000 to assist with promotion on 32-city North American tour.
