Dancehall Icon Nadine Sutherland Calls Out Entertainers Who ‘hide and jook’

The US dollar beckons! Some are just anti vaxxers. They personally understand how important it is to be vaxxed, but they publicly endorse the anti vax mindset of a lot of people in Jamaica, which includes their fan base. Nadine Sutherland was speaking in reference to the travel restrictions imposed by the United States that takes effect in November. “My thoughts are some are ‘trapped’. None at all! It’s crazy how this blew up, as my intent was to humorously state this fact,” she continues. The veteran dancehall deejay called out other artists for their hypocrisy in taking the vaccine in secret but maintaining an anti-vaccination stance in the public domain. Some Entertainers are taking the jook secretly, not wanting their fans to know. Responding to a comment on her post, Nadine Sutherland says while some entertainers are anti-vaxxers others feel trapped into supporting the popular anti-vaxx culture in which many of their fans believe. “Yesterday, I made a post highlighting a current situation in the Jamaican music industry, about ‘hide and jook’,” Sutherland said. Hmmmm, November is going to be interesting, I guess some will be outed. Hmmmm,” the outspoken deejay noted. — NadineSutherland (@Nadinesutherlan) September 29, 2021

In a new post on her Instagra, Nadine Sutherland makes it clear that she is not retracting her statement despite criticism from some quarters of the industry. Hide an jook is a talk on the streets. Some are just anti vaxxers,” she said. It requires that all non-US citizens traveling to the country be fully vaccinated. Hide an jook is a talk on the streets. Yesterday, I realized that some people are hiding and 'jook'. I know, I cannot control the lenses of how people interpret the world, or my words.”

“The reality is, people a ‘hide an jook’. On Wednesday night, the “Chatty Chatty” singer did not call any names, but she did say that there were entertainers who were publicly against taking the vaccine but ended up “hide and jook” so that they benefited from the vaccine travel restrictions imposed by countries. Those who aren’t cannot enter the country, something that would particularly affect Jamaican entertainers who perform and tour in the U.S. They personally understand how important it is to be vaxxed, but they publicly endorse the anti vax mindset of a lot of people in Jamaica, which includes their fan base. Some Entertainers are taking the jook secretly, not wanting their fans to know. “Yesterday, I realized that some people are hiding and ‘jook’. There is no evidence in that post that had me incrimnating or judging anyone for this choice! The US dollar beckons!” she said. Meanwhile, Sutherland noted that the hypocrisy appears to be a result of artists being trapped by their own support for the anti-vaccine culture, which fans have bought into. “November is going to be interesting, I guess some will be outed. “Some people got it and laughed, some wanted to understand this occurrence from a deeper level, while others … Wow, unnu deep sah.

While some entertainers like Mr. Lexx have publicly supported the vaccines and urge people to get vaxxed so everything can get back to normal, others like Buju Banton and even some popular DJs have been against the government’s efforts and are actively telling people not to get jab. — NadineSutherland (@Nadinesutherlan) September 29, 2021
