Following the officialJesus Is Kingmerch releases forNew York City and Detroit,Kanye Westhas delivered on an array of new city-specific march for his recentSunday Serviceinstallment and album listening session in Kingston, Jamaica. The two-hour-long gospel service saw West bring out his 120 – person choir to Emancipation Park, once again making the event free and open to the public. Throughout the performance, the various choir members, as well as Ye, were seen wearing “City of Kingston” themedJesus Is Kingmerch, which the prophetic artist-meets- entrepreneur later released via his online shop.

Within the latest drop, which utilizesYeezygarments as the base, various mock neck T-shirts and long sleeves, crewnecks, and a hat are showcased. Various pieces incorporate Kingston’s logo, with others bearing government logos such as the nation’s national hummingbird and Jamaica’s coat of arms. Some critics, such as Jamaican native Deika Morrison, were quick to point out that Ye had utilized these in an effort to profit off the narrative, equally violating the government’s protocols in regards to the use of the various logos for such purposes. Kingston’s mayor also took to Twitter to clarify some of the concerns that were raised.

You can check out the full range of items via the gallery above. Many of the pieces are still available for pre-order viaKanye West’s website.

So do we get paid royalties for all this Jamaica-themed merchandise bearing government logos and what not? Or don’t ask that either?https://t.co/MoDX7Njpf2

Did GOJ give permission since they seem pleased with the KSAC logo on the shirt? Flag is non-negotiable, last I checked.

“[The Jamaican Flag] should never have placed on it, any mark, insignia, letter, word, number, figure or drawing of any kind”https://t.co/gIS4o7loyc

Sorry. Which part is not our Coat of Arms? Maybe I’m tired and not seeing clearly. The left is from the website. The right is from JIS.pic.twitter.com/s4ZAdUs39 P

The issue of permits was raised firstly. As the@ ksamcorphas done for many local promoters; we facilitated the application despite the timing.

The notion that this “express” service was because of the fame of Mr West holds no merit as we followed the ordinary channels.

The City of Kingston does have an official logo which was put to twitter in about 2017 / 2018 for a flag and is seen in the background of this picture.

The Minister and I will update the public on concerns re the use of this and other emblems in short order.pic.twitter.com/iLzJn9IWRM
