DID ADMIRAL BAILEY RULE IN 1987?

MARLON BURRELL
Did you know that in 1987 Admiral Bailey had three of the top four records for the year at RJR? and all three songs were deemed NFAP (not fit for airplay.) The records were “Punany” (#1,) “Big Belly Man” (#3,) and “Two Year Old” (#4.) That same year, the Admiral recorded “X-Rated Country” in which he declared: “Me ah the NFAP man, Gi them one more mek them ban it galong” in response the airplay ban.” “Punany” was banned for obvious reasons. The explanation given for banning “Big Belly Man” was that is gave free advertisement to KFC, giving both name and location: “Jump ‘pon a van and reach ah Half Way Tree, go ah the place weh them call Kentucky.” “Two Year Old” was banned because it gave the impression of promoting pedophilia, that the artist literally wanted a two year old for a lover. What did the Admiral have to do to get some airplay in Jamaica in 1987?
