Minister of Local Government and Rural Development Desmond McKenzie is encouraging young persons to embrace music that encourages positive values, rather how to get cialis without prescription than glorifies illegal activities.

His call follows the recent ban imposed by the Broadcasting Commission on content that lauds illegal practices such as scamming, gun violence, drug abuse and more.

Mr. McKenzie said the Government is not violating citizens’ right to freedom of expression, but that anything broadcast in the public domain must be something edifying and uplifting

Reflecting on late popular Reggae artistes, such as Desmond Dekker, Dennis Brown, Alton Ellis and Bob Marley, the Minister noted that their music reflected the happenings in the country without vulgarity.
