Jamaican Dancehall Act, Mr Vegas Blasts Nana Akufo Addo Over Plans To Build National Cathedral
Jamaican Dancehall artist, Mr Vegas has blasted President Akufo Addo for building a National Cathedral while kids are still going to school under trees.
The artiste, who is best remembered for his 2004 hit song dubbed, ‘Tamale’, questioned why the president will do such a stupid thing when his country has not finished solving its major problems.
In a video sighted by www.buzzslate.com, Mr Vegas vented out his frustration at the president saying it was this same white man’s religion that enslaved millions of Africans and wondered why Nana Akufo Addo will build a place to worship an ‘alien’ God.
He asked the president to ‘wise up’ and think about his decision carefully because building a museum which contains African cultural heritage is far better than a cathedral.

Mr Vegas, real name Clifford Smith was born in Kingston in 1974. The moniker “Mr. Vegas” was given to Smith by his schoolyard football-mates, who thought that he kicked the ball like a Las Vegas dancer. In his early years as a singjay, Vegas sang covers of Jamaican hits at local parties and shows, and acquired a reputation as a troublemaker for his lyrics.
