*Despite earlier reports which have been circulated over the internet, dancehall/reggae artiste Baby Cham’s hit song Ghetto Story (a song in which he depicts some of the unfortunate incidents that he experienced while growing up in a Jamaican ghetto), has not been banned here in Jamaica.
Ghetto Story which has been impacting on the Billboard R&B Hip Hop Singles & Tracks chart, spent eight weeks at number one here in Jamaica a few months ago. The song was sent to radio here in Jamaica in November last year and has been receiving strong airplay even though its no longer on the charts here.
According to sources at the Broadcasting Commission here in Jamaica, the government organization which monitors songs and makes recommendations whether they are fit for airplay or not, Ghetto Story was never considered for any form of banning. Some members from the media here in Jamaica, have viewed the allegations of a ban as a mere publicity stunt to drum up support in the American market.
Efforts to contact Baby Cham for a comment on the issue, proved futile, as his Jamaican cell phone was consistently turned off.
