Growing up, music was an important part of my childhood. I see it being just as important in my children and all children's growth and development, and in a parent's connection with their children.
It's that kind of in-born music thing - I could pick up the guitar and play something. It's not something I consciously do.
When people come to Jamaica, we don't want them to think about the problems of Jamaica. So let them come be in their paradise.
I don't care what you play, where you're from, who you produce. It depends on what you're doing when you're with me. That's what counts. I don't pre-judge anything or anybody.
