Fresh on the heels of the Jamaican bobsled team’s participation in the 2014 Sochi Games, the man who played a Jamaican bobsledder and wrote the theme song in the now infamous movie, “Cool Runnings,” is set to attend the biggest investment summit on the Caribbean outside the region, Invest Caribbean Now, (ICN).
Yoba’s attendance expresses his support for the Summit‘s goals of sustainable development and investment towards building a stronger more economically viable region for the next generation and for Caribbean American Heritage Month in the United States.
