Jamaicans are famous for coining slangs, and over the years have had many different terms to communicate their feelings.

Brogad has been doing the rounds recently, with Montego Bay-based deejay, Daddy 1, getting some sparks from a song bearing the word.

The term got additional life when Prime Minister Andrew Holness changed his social media handle to ‘The Most Honourable Brogad’, which many from the younger generation responded positively to.

Loop News went to the University of Technology (UTech) in St Andrew, and downtown Kingston, to find out the public’s understanding of the slang, Brogad.
