  Reggae artiste Safira Mono has launched a scathing attack on the alarming number of dancehall personalities and public figures who have undertaken breast enhancement surgery in recent months. 


"Aidonia said publicly that he is a rasta, but obviously he can't hold it, how come he is a rasta and his wife is doing false enhancement surgery? Why are they misleading the society and the ghetto youths, making them ashamed of their bodies and their heritage?" she asked. 

The list of persons who have publicly admitted to breast enhancement surgery include Dancehall Queen Sher and Aidonia's wife, Kimberly Megan, Yanique Curvy Diva, and Usain Bolt’s longtime girlfriend Kasi Bennett. She fingered other public figures as "mindless puppets" chasing status and celebrity but who are merely carrying out the mandate of a society intent on creating a poor, frustrated, and intellectually bankrupt underclass. 

"As for Yanique and Kitty, they are puppets and don't know any better so I don't blame them for hating themselves and pretending as if they are happy when misleading the youths. All now dem don't sign Ms Lou petition, but dem a pursue false enhancements and cosmetic surgery fi fame and attention. But they were taught to do so by a corrupt system, it begins in school and church. The negro youths are however their biggest fans and they are my biggest concern. Puppets are trend followers and would do anything for the spotlight or to get likes at the expense of the children losing their innocence," she said.

Safira Mono also addressed the issue of butt enhancements. 

"If God made you with the bottom you have, it is a product of your ancestry, a lot of our foreparents were raped or abused, and have European, Indian, Chinese blood in them so they just never born with that African bottom, but women are now getting their designer bottoms and doing all sorts of plastic and cosmetic surgery which can lead to all sorts of complications and diseases in the future. As a society, we need to warn the youths and stop glorifying these people," she said. 

Cosmetic surgery is a surgical expertise that aims at correcting or improving body imperfections. 

She believes that the rash of recent cosmetic surgeries is a mere symptom of the self-hate that is an insidious remnant of the island's colonial past.

"It is like telling The Almighty God, the Creator of all things that He  was wrong when He created us so we correct God. Joan Rivers died under the knife and so did Kanye West's mother to name a few public figures. This issue is a vexing one for the black race because it also shows lack of confidence in self  - a condition which the black race is suffering from - although some are still unaware that they are suffering from self hate," she said. 

Safira Mono, who is known for the hit single,' Monitor', recently performed at the Marcus Garvey celebrations hosted by IRIE FM. She is a firebrand rastafarian fighting for righteousness in a decadent time. 

"When we body shame, and make adjustments thinking it will make us feel better about ourselves...the truth is that the real problem lies within and it is still there, hiding. A lot of people become cosmetic addicts after undergoing the knife... they never stop making adjustments, putting the lives on the line. The youths grow up believing that as soon as they come of age and acquire some money, the next move is cosmetic surgery, the never-ending pursuit of big money in desolate places, and that can only lead to destruction," she said. 

Safira Mono will be releasing a new single and video called 'Cruff Life' on iTunes and other downloadable platforms next week.
