Dilma Rousseff: the Dancehall President?

Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff has stunned world leaders and Jamaican music fans alike by releasing a mixtape of lady-led dancehall floor fillers. Until now Dilma had been more famous for her economics than her passion for dancehall divas with strident views on a woman’s right to receive oral sex. But it was while serving time in prison for revolutionary conspiracies against Brazil’s loathed military dictatorship that a young Dilma fell in love with dancehall.

The mixtape brought a huge boost to Dilma’s poll numbers, provoking other leaders to try and prove their credentials in the race for the title ‘World’s Flyest National Leader’. An impromptu skiffle performance by David Cameron fell flat after he misread the mood in a recent European Council meeting.

Dilma’s playlist has been released in partnership with international DJ sensations, Tears for Queers. Tears for Queers will be dropping some of Dilma’s nastiest selections alongside some wholly uncomplimentary pop tunes this Friday at the George and Dragon in Hackney, East London.
