If the gross does not act properly, it may average there is something misguided with the tracks.
For instance, if you need a business license, be sure to obtain one.

Enjoyed her YouTube channel as well. A talented and good-hearted beauty. She has a bright future ahead of her.

As a Jamaican (living in Brooklyn) who has been to almost every single CARICOM country, I have to say there is no energy to be found like the Downtown folks in Kingston. That picture at the top of this story with Alissa filming that old lady in the purple blouse, is a taste of what it’s like to mingle with the folks who create the vibe of our culture.

That old lady’s name is “Madusa” LOL! She is a fixture at ‘Passa Passa” dances in West Kingston. Jamaicans have come as far as from the UK to pay her to dance.

She has a whole scheme to make money. She’ll tease you all night with little snatches of dancing to entice you to pay her to move; as soon as you pay her–‘she fly gone’ with your money–not a dance will you see LOL! No one knows her true age, where she lives (she’s a bit off of her rockers) but she never misses a ‘scene.’ Day or night, wherever the action is downtown, Madame Madusa is there. I was so NOT surprised to see her in Alissa film. Too funny!

One has not truly been to Jamaica unless one has experienced our dancehall scene and all its offshoots. Lawd I miss home!

The hair/nail/tatoos are not something I would get done there. The ladies are unquestionably talented, but possess little knowledge of even how to protect themselves when administering cosmetic/beauty procedures. Many of them are bald under those weaves due to improper techniques being used over the years.

It would be nice if the dyamn stupid govt. would reward their enterprising spirits with proper training and decent facilities so proper health standards can be maintained.

Bless their hearts. “Dem mek sumpn outta nutten.”
