"The Ministry of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport is pleased to facilitate Kanye West’s performance in the country as it supports the government’s programme to establish Jamaica as the preferred destination for music and sport events.”
The Ministry of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport is working closely with the Jamaica Tourist Board; the Passport, Immigration and Citizenship Agency; the Kingston and St Andrew Municipal Corporation and other government entities to ensure the success of the event.
