Kanye West did not breach any Coronavirus (COVID-19) protocols during his recent trip to Jamaica, according to the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF).
The American rapper, record producer, and fashion designer, arrived in Jamaica on a private jet on Friday morning (September 18), and his first stop was at Buju Banton’s Gargamel Music Studio.
“GREATNESS IN THE MAKING,” Yeezy captioned the photo of the two on Twitter. The post sent tongues wagging on social media as many Jamaicans questioned why the rapper-turned-politician wasn’t in quarantine for 14 days.
Dennis Brooks, senior communications strategist for the Jamaica Constabulary Force, told the Jamaica STAR, that while Kanye West did not quarantine, that does not mean there were any breaches of protocol.
“There are different methods of gaining approval; so he could have applied to come here on business, therefore testing would have been different. If he came here for four days to record an album or to get a beat from Buju Banton, then we could assume that would be a business trip,” Brooks said.
“There are different regimes that are particular to the purpose of travel as well as the orders he would have signed to when he arrived,” Brooks added. “Nonetheless, at this time, I am not aware of any breaches being made and from a constabulary perspective, we act quickly when there is a breach of the order, and as I stated before, it must be specific to the order they signed.”
