There is panic within the Liberal Party-backed ‘No To An Indigenous Voice’ Campaign today, after one of their only two Indigenous figures begins planning her exit from the redneck celebrity vortex.
Today it can be revealed that conservative mouthpiece and political contrarian, Jacinta Nampijinpa Price has been offered a new spotlight to stand in.
Indigenous rapper Briggs is believed to have offered Jacinta a spot on stage singing with his Black activist rap group A.B. ORIGINAL this weekend.
This comes as the band made their position on the referendum undeniably clear with a new track, ‘Yes’ ft. DJ Total Eclipse & Marlon.
The release of this new Indigenous rights anthem comes on the eve of the Now & Forever 2023 concert event, set to take place in Shepparton tomorrow with a line up of Australian music royalty, including Jimmy Barnes, Baker Boy, Paul Kelly, Barkaa and the Hilltop Hoods.
And it is believed that Jacinta Price is just one of many Indigenous performers invited to join this stable of ARIA-winning musicians on stage this weekend. It is believed that she is very much considering the invitation.
This is not surprising, given Senator Price’s very recent history as a Top End RnB sensation that performed under the name Sassy J.
After enjoying a hip hop career in the clubs and festival circuit of the Northern Territory, she launched her own solo album Dry River in 2013,
The album, which features the now-senator rocking a mohawk on its cover, was described in her Triple J Unearthed profile as a mix of Blues, Soul, Roots and Folk that “has been compared to that of artist Tracy Chapman”.
This varied and illustrious career as an aspiring triple-threat performer could explain Sassy J’s undying quest for stardom, in whatever field she finds herself in.
However, as it becomes even more clear that Jacinta Price will not appear at one more Liberal Party press conference the moment this referendum is over, the former children’s TV star is starting to harbour a deep desire to ditch her new right-wing mates – and focus her thespian talents on her first true love of singing on stage.
“If I’m gonna play second fiddle, it may as well be with Briggs” says Price.
“It’s not like Warren’s ever gonna let me sing the chorus. I deserve to be in the centre of the stage… Not with the back up singers like Pauline and Peta Credlin!”
