General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Bernard Isaac, has confirmed that the Party has cancelled its plans to have two top regional entertainers perform at its final mass rally, taking place at Pearls Airport in the rural parish of St. Andrew, on Sunday, 17 Feb.
“No one, other than local entertainers, will be performing at the meeting,” said Isaac on Friday
“We don’t have the money to pay, as a matter of fact we are searching for money to pay the buses right now. If we have the artistes it’s because we got a sponsor like what happened last week with the Prodigal Son of Jamaica.” the official said.
Information surfaced earlier in the month that the NDC was negotiating with the management team of Trinidadian entertainer, Bunji Garlin, and Jamaican entertainer, Beres Hammond, to perform at its final rally which will start off with an island-wide motorcade and culminating at the abandoned Pearls Airport.
The New National Party (NNP) rally on Sunday, 17 Feb, will be at the Roy St. John Recreation Grounds in Tanteen. An official from the party has confirmed that the rally will be focusing heavily on spiritual growth and praise. “We have just begun the lenten season and will be demonstrating our commitment to the Church and God.”
