Tony RebelMany public figure including entertainer Tony Rebel are expressing disappointment following the fake bust of Marcus Garvey that the University of the West Indies unveiled recently.

Some have criticized the work, stating that it bears no resemblance to Jamaica’s first national hero, others called it “a misrepresentation of a great nation”, and some “a complete failure”.

Veteran singer Tony Rebel is imploring the institution to put out information that is factual.

IRIE FM’s Ka’Bu Ma’at Kheru during the Africa Forum on Sunday started an online petition at change.org called ‘Fake Garvey Bust at The University of the West Indies Must Come Down’.
