During the early days of Sunsplash the fascination with Rasta inspired many foreign women to fly to Jamaica to have sex with such an exotic.
There were ‘love’ affairs, (even if they were one sided) and marriages, and VISAs, and exports.
Over time, the foreign woman was not looking for a permanent fixture, she was looking for someone she could get to marry her.
The Renta, with an inflated ego, actually believed she was in love with him and did marry her.
When she departed he assumed she’d send for him in a short time.
Many Rentadreads were never sent for.
