The coming of Emperor Haile Selassie’s grandson to Jamaica has sparked tension between some members of the Rastafarian community.
Entertainer Bunny Wailer is at the center of the controversy along with Dr. Michael Barnett and Maxine Stowe.
Dr. Michael Barnett explains that the contention arose following the exclusion of Trench Town during the official motorcade planned for Emperor Haile Selassie I’s grandson, Prince Ermias.
Meanwhile, efforts by Music News to get a comment from Bunny Wailer and Maxie Stowe were futile.
Prince Ermias visit to Jamaica will mark 50 years since his grandfather’s historic visit on April 21, 1966.
