PopCaan gives update on drain cleaning and calls out NWA
A week after being criticized by the National Works Agency (NWA), Dancehall star PopCaan continues his drain cleaning exercise in his native St. Thomas.
Last week, NWA’s Communications Manager, Stephen Shaw, pointed out the potential negative outcomes that can occur if the individuals cleaning the drains do not understand the procedures involved in drain cleaning.
PopCaan has since invited Mr. Shaw to join the project instead of talking and dwelling on the negatives.
In a post shared to his verified Instagram account on (Thursday Jan 25), the Unruly Boss updated his over 3.1 million followers of the progress. In one of the videos, he again called out NWA’s Stephen Shaw. The video shows PopCaan pointing to a totally blocked drain as he lamented that Mr. Stephen Shaw does not understand the importance of now.
It has been two weeks since PopCaan has embarked on the drain cleaning exercise in the Bamboo River community in the parish, after residents raised safety concerns about the smell of the stagnant water and the dangers it poses, citing that it has become a breeding ground for disease-carrying mosquitoes.
The residents continue to praise the Dancehall deejay for his efforts.
Meanwhile, the NWA, which is responsible for cleaning the drains, is yet to address the residents’ concerns.
