Trinidadian diaspora blogger Afrobella [1] blogs about reggae superstar Buju Banton at his best and worst, prompting Jamaican Annie Paul [2] to respond: “Just as you…have pointed out the good and bad sides of Buju…it's necessary also to nuance what homosexuality represents in cultures such as Jamaica, that homosexuality too has its good and bad sides, to differentiate between predatory homosexuality and just being a homosexual…because its the latter that we want to defend not the former.”
