Popcaan, Vybz Kartel, Bounty Killer, and Tarrus Riley are among Jamaican dancehall stars showing support for the people of St Vincent amid a devastating volcano eruption.
St. Vincent’s La Soufriere Volcano has been erupting since April 9 and has left the island and other neighboring islands covered in ash and stones from the eruption. Sections of the island have had to be evacuated even as the small island nation prepares for more fallout from the volcano that last had a major eruption some decades ago in April 1979.
Quite a few of their neighboring islands and countries have reached out to help in the evacuation measures and also to lend support to those still on the island. On Friday, Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves got quite emotional in expressing his thanks to all the persons who have reached out.
Quite a few Jamaican entertainers who have been watching the situation unfold have also lent their voices to the nation’s cause. They have encouraged others to pray for the nation and have also shared posts instructing persons where they may drop off donations for the island nation.
Vybz Kartel took to Instagram and posted: “JAMAICA MEK WE SEND SOME LOVE AND SOME WELL WISHES TO THE STRONG PEOPLE OF ST VINCENT AND THE GRENADINES!!!! STAY SAFE MI PEOPLE. THIS TOO WILL PASS.”
