There has been a buzz about the 2020 Jamaica Festival Song Competition for some time now. The rumor was that several veteran artists, namely: Toots Hibbert, Buju Banton, LUST, Papa Michigan and Freddie McGregor, have all submitted songs and are in the running to be this year’s winner.
Though we’ve been hearing the chatter we were reluctant to say anything until we knew for sure that there was some truth to it. Today we can say that the story is indeed accurate. On Wednesday the Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, Olivia Grange, announced that all the aforementioned artists are among the finalists.
