Shyne to Mesop…Sista B to Queen Square…

And from matters of state to matters of party politics – rapper turned politician Jamal ‘Shyne’ Barrow announced last week on his Facebook page that he would be running in the Mesopotamia division when his uncle Michael Finnegan steps down. Political observers believed that former U.D.P. Mayor Zenaida Moya would be making the attempt to succeed her mentor Finnegan, with his blessing. But now Shyne has allegedly gotten the nod from Uncle Michael. That’s big backative in Mesop, and now you can add bigger backative, since he’s also gotten the support of his father. According to PM Barrow, if all goes as politically planned, there’ll be a Barrow in Mesop and another Barrow in Queen Square.

“Of course he has my blessing. He is my son and if that’s what he chooses to do I will of course support him.”



“He has also said that Sister B will take over in Queen Square.”

“That is the plan. Indeed that is the plan.”


Moya has stated publicly that she still intends to run in Mesopotamia, and does not believe that Shyne has the full and public support of his uncle, Michael Finnegan.
