Why is Trinidad Banning Jamaican DanceHall Artists

Dancehall deejay and dancer Ding Dong, has been the lastest Jamaican artist banned by  Trinidad. Ding Dong, who was scheduled to perform at the "Party Cup" event in the twin-island republic on Saturday, did not get to preform, as on reaching the Piarco International Airport in Port-of-Spain, he was informed that he would not be allowed to enter the country.

It is alleged that the artiste has been placed on a list of Jamaican artistes who have been banned from performing in Trinidad and Tobago. Sources revealed that these artistes, including Ding Dong, Vybz Kartel,Mavado and Bounty Killa have been deemed a threat to Trinidadian society and therefore cannot be allowed into the country. 

Ding Dong was still bewildered by the actions of the Trinidadian authorities. “Fi tell you de truth me can’t even explain wha’ go down a Trinidad... mi can’t tell you,” was all Ding Dong could say in a recent interview with the Jamaican paper The CHAT!.
