Somebody tell mi weh Matalon come from?
Kartel directs a lot of anger at the Matalon family in this song, however it’s somewhat unwarranted. Mayer Matalon was chairman of the Jamaica College board of directors (1967-71) while at the same time his brother, Eli Matalon, was chairman of the Kingston College board of directors. Mayer Matalon was also the former chairman of West Indies Home Contractors. Had it not been for the Matalons, who invested heavily in housing, there would be more serious housing problems today.
