  1. Shine Jamaica the best πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜…

  2. Tyshae did deh yah

  3. Usa person in jamaica. Nice to see more of your incredible history. Beautiful, no scarry.

  4. I think if the authorities had kept our culture vibrant we probably wouldn’t be dealing with these first world crimes. Now children pride themselves in killing people on video games. I think a body should be set up to rebuild our cultural identity and we problem wouldn’t have our youths wearing their pants down to show off their butts. We have already become Americanise but it’s not late to turn things around.

  5. It should go, its paganism. We shouldn’t hold on to traditions based on culture. Nothing but the truth will stand the test of time.

    • Have you no shame?! Religion is based on culture. Why should European culture rule the whole world? 😑

    • @John Costa may be your religion is based on your culture my friend. My religion is based on Jesus crucified and resurrected, and this is a fact, FYI christianity is not European.

  6. Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid, do not be discouraged for the Lord your. God will be with you wherever you go πŸ™ JESUS CHRIST IS THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE ETERNAL πŸ™…

  7. I grew up on jonkonnu… and road marching even dancing in the streets of Jamaica! but now the new school music teaching how to kill and not love each other.. no marriages no more for Jamaicans just β€œmi tek weh yuh gyal”

    It’s sad that we accept other cultures and neglect our own

  9. It’s only scary becuz we suh raised to value European culture and not our own culture

  10. Jankonnu is not even the correct word,more research needed.What was once seperate ceremonies in Africa,were forced to combine in the caribbean into one.Similer to obiah(oba-ifo) where good priest was forced to join them at night .Do your own study on ( voodoo) vodum,santeria,umbanda,orisha all survive slavery

    • Jankonnu is the jamaican patois word for it’s practice in jamaica. It’s obviously understood it doesn’t the same way to African countries that do it

    Dem dash wey we culture fe Halloween!!!

  12. Very interesting conversation. I have been blessed to go to various African countries. I see Jonkonnu all over in Africa. It is dance ritual and shows just how entrenched the caribbean culture is rooted in Africa culture folklore, music, song and dance, clothing, food worship practices etc.

  13. We already Americanized an wi tun fool.

  14. It should disappear period Christian must not partake
