The latest social trending person is a girl who goes by the name mackerel(@mackerelofficial1). She is currently under fire for her
Mackerel claims that people man nice, in other words she enjoys being with men who are already in relationships.
In Jamaica we would call her a professional matey, in American culture they say side chick.
As soon as she came on the scene, the backlash was immediate.
Suddenly people started claiming morals and standards. People started talking about bad influence on kids and all kinds of fake righteous nonsense.
These same people are the ones who jump up when they hear Shenseea say “if me take weh your man me a keep dat”.
The same people who jump up when Tifa said “wine matey wine,
The same people who jump up when Ishawna talks about “tek a gal man”.
The same females who scream when the selector says “all the girls dat a tek a next girl man scream”.
So why is Mackerel being treated like a disease by dancehall culture? The honest answer is prejudice.
No disrespect to Mackerel but she is not what our culture would consider to be attractive.
I can imagine she has had a hard time growing up and being called all sorts of names.
This young lady is being taken advantage of by the same people who mock her.
They realise she has a hype now and they are jumping on the wagon. When the hype fades away, they wont even allow her in the stores they are making her promote now.
This is a classic case of the hypocrisy, exploitation and double standard culture we have in Jamaica.
Mackerel is just the latest person but they will soon toss her aside and find someone new.
She is not wrecking homes, your man did a give you bun long before Mackerel turned up on the scene and it will continue long after.
She is just highlighting matey culture with a less attractive package.
You praise Shenseea, Ishawna, Tifa etc. for singing about the same things, why don’t you accuse them of wrecking homes.
No woman can make a man leave his family so this is just smoke and mirrors.
People are blaming this girl for a culture that has been present before she was even born.
Now maybe I am missing something here, so this question still stands!
What is the difference between what Mackerel is saying and what Ishawna, Shenseea etc are saying?
