Opposition Senator, Dr. Andre Haughton, says he intends to move a motion which seeks to allow the use of profanity in the dancehall space.

 

Dr. Haughton raised concerns after the Police warned Japanese-based sound clash group, Mighty Crown, to desist from using Jamaican bad words at the Fully Loaded stage show on the weekend.

 

He says obscene language shouldn’t be considered as such when used in the context of a dancehall performance.

He says he’ll review the Act which makes using obscene language illegal.

The Opposition Senator says Jamaican bad words are considered comical when used in the context of a dancehall performance.
