The United People’s Party are very upset with the WILLY DEAD cartoon animation- WHY? Because there’s a reference to “ONE GOING TO AFRICA WITH MR ‘KIMBA!!! There’s also a reference to Sarah Wescot Williams going to the Haitian Coco Fields to get her obeah done. It’s a Calypso song, and it is a parody- a humorous look at our Government and politicians superstitious beliefs in retaining power, seats and money by hiring Witch Doctors and Obeah Men. Had I done the exact same cartoon in the United States and used Obama as Willy, and John McCain as Theo- there would have been NO controversy- because people in America and Europe don’t readily believe in Obeah, and Witch Doctors- they would find it either funny, or not funny. In the Caribbean when you put together an “obeah” video, it doesn’t matter that it’s a calypso parody, it doesn’t matter that it’s cartoon satire, it doesn’t matter that there’s an election year… people want to get upset, and think the worst.
1) If you take Obeah cartoons this seriously, chances are you practice and believe in it- understand that “good Christians” CANNOT practice pagan rituals or religion.
2) Although YOU might believe in Obeah, and you might take Voodoo seriously, the vast majority of modern people in first world countries don’t- to them it’s just superstition
3) There are all types of political parody, why get upset about an Obeah video? Would you be as upset with a Tooth Fairy, or Leprechaun video?
4) Judith Roumou has OVER 100 million VIEWS on Youtube- boycotts DON’T work, not even for local videos, because 99.99999999999999999999999% of my audience are not in St Maarten. However it seems like EVERY St Maartener has seen or heard about the video- so in trying to SUPPRESS the video- The United People’s Party has ASSISTED in making in go viral.
5) Judith Roumou has over 100 individual Youtube Channels and Accounts- The video can be re-processed and re-uploaded 1000 times in less than a month- trying to shut the video down, will only make many more of the very same videos pop up
6) My Youtube audience is ten times the size of St Maarten or more- so the UP army, the NA army, The DP army- Don’t scare me, it doesn’t matter what they do- they are simply pushing and promoting the video- EVERYTIME THEY TELL A SUPPORTER NOT TO CLICK ON AND WATCH THE VIDEO- THE PERSON RUNS TO THE VIDEO!
7) The only reference seemingly that bothers Theo Heyliger and Crew is the African reference- but Fish Da Mega Boss wrote and recorded the song back in March/April……. before there were any fairy tales about curses, and human sacrifice etc. This song was produced waaaay before any accident happened, and political agents started whispering about “human sacrifices” etc etc
8) There was a tragic accident in May, Theo Heyliger’s son died in an accident. The WILLY DEAD calypso was ALREADY in circulation…. POLITICAL AGENTS, and then locals started to spread a rumor that Theo Heyliger, before his son’s death had flown to Nigeria, Africa with his pal the “Kemba African” to meet an African witchdoctor to guarantee the elections. The issue wasn’t money or votes, the issue was The Masbangu Trial. In theMasbangu Trial Glinda Webster had become the MAIN WITNESS in a courtcase that centered around Theo Heyliger and the UP Party BRIBING the St Maarten Police department. The case was postponed TWICE… Theo (DEY SAY) went to Africa to stay out of jail- the Main Witness dropped down and died- which I believe will kill the Masbangu courtcase.
However Glinda Webster dropped down and died AFTER Theo Heyliger’s son’s accident- so they started rumours of “a soul for a soul”…
And I say THEY- not me, because the very same people who were posting “human sacrifice” all over the internet are now DEEP in Maurice Lake and Theo Heylige’s hip pocket. I read Facebook posts- and I read what they’re writing- but I don’t really believe that MAN has the power to do God’s work- so I don’t take it too seriously- but evidently many people do- they can’t see a parody political cartoon, as being just that- a cartoon.
9) I’m not the one who started the ‘human sacrifice’ rumours, they were started by political agents on all sides. People need to realize that if it was Marlin or Sarah’s son who’d tragically died during an election year- PEOPLE WOULD HAVE SAID THE SAME THING! AND U.P.P. AGENTS WOULD HAVE BEEN SPREADING THE SAME RUMOURS. Some people LOVE Theo, they automatically get angry when they think he’s being dissed, some are the same about Frans, Marlin, Sarah and other politicians.
10) The Cartoon was NOT exaggerated, it did go over the top, it’s not mean, it didn’t get personal- what the Cartoon did was simply translate Fish da Mega Boss’s lyrics into an animated format. I could have been a lot meaner, made personal digs- but hat I did was stick to the scripts, and people are still angry and upset.
11) You cannot say Marlin paid for the video, because he has a huge ego- and his portrayal is not that great either- not until the end, so if you think that Marlin would sponsor something that doesn’t portray him as perfect- then you’re crazy. If you think Theo or Frans sponsored this video- then you’re way of course.
Only people like the UP agents online and on Facebook right now who believe and practice obeah and voodoo are angry at this, because I guess they feel exposed.
12) I believe only GOD decides who lives and who dies, and true Christians don’t believe that man has the power to imitate God and cause life and death. Either you believe the Bible- or you don’t. If you claim that you believe the Bible, then you’ll have to believe the part that if you are a TRUE Christian/Christlike then NO MAN can harm you- no matter what they might try.
THE WILLY DEAD SONG WAS WRITTEN LONG BEFORE ANY TRAGEDY
THEO GOING TO AFRICA ETC, IS JUST A RUMOUR AND WILL REMAIN SO UNLESS SOMEONE CAN SHOW A TICKET STUB
THE SONG AND VIDEO ARE NOT MALICIOUS, IT’S A FUNNY CALYPSO SONG- WHICH HAS BEEN ANIMATED TO A COMEDY CARTOON.
GETTING UPSET WITH A VIDEO, MAKES NO SENSE BECAUSE IT IS JUST A VIDEO, AND IT MAKES FUN OF MARLIN, WESCOT, LAVILLE, ILLIDGE….EVERY BIG FISH WAS IN THE VIDEO- SO YOU CAN’T PRETEND THEO WAS SINGLED OUT.
ONLY GOD DECIDES WHO LIVES AND WHO DIES, SO EITHER YOU’RE A REAL CHRISTIAN AND BELIEVE THAT- OR YOU’RE NOT
SO YOU CAN CONTINUE TO RAISE YOUR PRESSURE, AND GET SICK BECAUSE OF A POLITICAL CARTOON ANIMATION, BASED ON A HUMOROUS SONG
