Bits : Singing a Different Tune
week a Jamaica Star article, by Tieno Evans, produced
the quote of the week.
"Moses 'Beenie Man' Davis, the man who once
sang "man fi ave nuf gal an gal inna bungle"
and "one gal can't satisfy me" was singing
a different tune at his nuptials with Michelle
'D'Angel' Downer, now Mrs. Davis, yesterday."

It is indeed true, love can certainly produce
new melodies and more. We now await the album.

Correction: The author of the article entitled,

: Indian Interest
seems a high level of interest has been generated
in India resulting from the Jamaica Tourist Board's
(JTB's) recent decision to appoint TRAC Representations
as its marketing representative to India.
One positive result so far is that a South Asia
media company is currently in discussion with
the JTB and Jamaica Promotions Corporation about
the possibilities of them filming a full-length
feature film on the island.
