Following some public backlash from some social media users, Jamaican dancehall artiste Khago has declared that whatever people think, what he does to his body is his business.

In an interview with Zip103 FM on Saturday, the artiste said, “Mi know di people dem a talk. And me a seh the bleaching argument stale out, Kartel done tell dem dat already.”

“I feel seh people free fi do wah dem waan do wid demself, because me nah go out an do tings fi harm other people,” he added.

“A music we a do and we just feel fi mek a change inna wi life,” he contended.

Khago had set off a storm of comments and speculation on social media this week when he re-emerged from a short hiatus with lightened skin, piercings and tattoos.

He told Zip FM that everyone is entitled to their opinion, but they should also be mindful that “you have one life to live”.

“When it come on to how you feel to carry yourself, mi feel trimming my hair have nothing to do wid nobody. A me grow it,” Khago said.

As it relates to the cutting of his dreadlocks, Khago explained that it was out of necessity as it was becoming a medical hazard for him.

“The locks get too heavy pon my neck and it did a strain and mi end up affi cut it off,” he noted.

Hundreds of fans and followers sounded off on social media, into what they observed to be drastic changes in the artiste’s appearance.
