PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad, Feb 14, CMC – Police are warning party-goers that they could face criminal charges if they continue to follow, very much the lyrics of Grenadian singer, Hollis “Mr Killa” Mapp to “Run With It”.

Mapp’s 2019 song for the Carnival celebrations here has literally led to persons virtually picking up anything when the song is being played, including tents, coolers and chairs belonging to others.

“Based on that, when the song is being played, we understand that people go into a frenzy. What we are asking party-goers, in your enthusiasm, the song is a nice song and persons are very charged up when that song is playing (but) we are asking party-goers to please be mindful and do not violate the rights of others,” Assistant Superintendent of Police, Wayne Mystar, told reporters.

“There are a lot of offences that could stem from some of the actions taking place of being allowed by this particular song,” he added.

He also reminded patrons that as the country moves into the height of the Carnival celebrations “permission is still needed for a person to wine on another”.

“A person who refused (a wine) if they are asked and you continue to wine on that person then you would have committed an offence of battery and assault…so yes, you need permission to do those thing,” Mystar said.

Mapp is among national and international singers contesting the 2019 Fantastic Friday International Soca Monarch schedules for March 1.

    • This statement is really ridiculous!! Don't you know how many women have been harassed and assaulted by men they don't want to wine on? This situation has happened to a woman who got killed because she told the man she didn't want him to wine on her. This happened in the US i believe. Then when it hits home, you will complain and say "I eh know why they eh enforce a law stating that permission must be granted in order for a man to wine on a woman". You men only see one side and not both sides to a situation. Women prefer to enjoy their wine on their own in case you didn't know.

      • oh shut up. what that hitting home? Saint Lucian men not so ignorant, everyday yall people over there killing each other for petty reasons like flies so its obviously that yall will get on stupid if a woman dont want to wine on yall. i believe a woman has the right to dance with who she want and dont want and thing there is rather stupid and ridiculous. its like dosing your self with gasoline and lighting a match and expecting for you not to get burnt.

You right here are a perfect example of IGNORANT. Like I said yall only see one side to a situation.And go find a job cause all you do is comment under every post SNO has. Smfh. I guess when you said "yall get on stupid when a woman don't wine on yall", you simply described yourself
