Vybz Kartel Preaches Financial Literacy

Jumping on the financial literacy lyrics trend made popular by the artist Yaksta, Vybz Kartel’s new release entitled 'Really' hits out against consumerism and neo-colonialism.

The lyricist also touched on the importance of making a budget, and the value of saving and investing. The persistence of mental slavery and the disunity of blacks in Jamaica is also adressed. In light of the so many songs promoting consumerism and luxury life, the song, 'Really' is a welcome addition to the repertoire of this influential artist.
