After these two brave gents made their bold support for decisions unpopular with many Bajans, there was another cultural segment from Dancin’ Afrique called “I Chupse” where an open mention of flattery towards Acting (yet inactive) PM Freundel Stuart, who – as per the norm – did not speak. Is this where “I Chupse“?
