Did you hear that? It’s the sound of Yardies worldwide rejoicing at President Obama’s patois impersonation.
Number 44 landed in Kingston, Jamaica Thursday (April 9) to take part in a summit alongside 15 Caribbean leaders. Potus, who is a huge Bob Marley fan (as he should be) made a surprise visit to the Reggae legend’s home to tour the museum housing all his and Tuff Gong paraphernalia
Before speaking to a crowd of people, the president did his best “Wha Gwan”, which resulted in all kinds of jump and wave from yardies everywhere.
As a Jamaican myself, I couldn’t help but be proud to see my president mingle with people from my home.
