Veteran dancehall artiste Beenie Man has been seen in a video clip making the rounds on social media promoting a New Year’s eve party.
While the entertainer doesn’t disclose the precise location of the party, he notes that the session will be taking place in St Elizabeth.
“St Elizabeth if unno know where the party deh reach, so you know seh a New Year’s Eve and we haffi ring in the New Years, we nuh care wah who want to say,” said Beenie Man.
“So if you know where the party deh, unno haffi deh deh, the party name 12 to 7; So we have bon fire and you know seh me….everything good,,, you know so walk with unno money, if you a come and broke a you alone it ago sweet… walk with your money that we a deal with, added Beenie Man in what appears to be a promo video for the party.
The police have said that they are aware of the video and note that any patrons caught at the event would be prosecuted, adding that no parties are allowed under the Disaster Risk Management Act (DRMA).
Minister of Local Government and Rural Development, Desmond McKenzie, earlier in December said that no permits have been granted by the municipal corporations for parties and events anywhere in Jamaica, and the staging of these illegal activities will be stopped by the police.
A ban has been placed on the staging of parties and events as part of measures to reduce the transmission of the coronavirus (COVID-19).
