Former Bad Boy rapper Shyne has officially been sworn in as Leader of the Opposition for Belize.
Shyne wrote in an Instagram post. “Thank Gd for the perseverance and iron will to continue on to this point despite all challenges and difficulties…All that I have been through in my 42 years on earth has prepared me for this historic moment in time to be able to shoulder this responsibility, to deliver on this opportunity to build my Nation.”
Shyne’s new role comes after previous leader Patrick Faber’s involvement in an altercation with the mother of his two-year-old daughter. Last month, a video leaked on Faber’s altercation and showed him charging towards the woman.
Shyne’s father, Dean Barrow, served as the Prime Minister of Belize from 2008 until 2020. At one point, Dean was also the leader of the United Democratic Party.
