MikeyBennettLast week we reported on the JA 50th song that is being produced by Mickey Bennett. Since then it seems like this project has seemingly fallen out of favour.

Last year Bennett was approached to compose a theme song for the country's Golden Jubilee in August which he accepted and came up with the concept "Find The Flag" which featured 15 artistes. However it is still unknown as to what happened to the song after it was submitted during the JLP administration.

"It was launched as the official song, but I have heard the new minister announcing a new song," according to Bennett. "But nobody has said anything to me, and I can't even go back to the artistes dem and say 'bwoy, listen, there is a new song'."
Beres Hammond, Freddie McGregor, Tarrus Riley, Konshens, Capleton, Admiral Bailey, Ken Boothe and Marcia Griffiths are some of the artistes on Find The Flag.

According to Bennett, "Nobody has communicated anything to me or to any of the artistes dem to say that the song is not the song no more."

Chairman of the Jamaica 50 Commission Robert Bryan made it clear that there was no official arrangement or agreement for the song submitted by Bennett.

As far as a new song is concerned, Bryan stated, "We have a campaign song that is in keeping with the marketing theme of Jamaica 50, which is A Nation On A Mission. And that song will be used to drive the marketing campaign and deliver the marketing campaign message."
