During the sit down, the often criticized James states that he would not change his name or visual representation of Trinidad even in the face of disapproval:
“I was going to keep the name and keep the flags in the All Gold Everything video even if no Trinidadians respected what I did. Because it’s not really to get the approval of the whole world or the whole of Trinidad. It’s just to show the people who care that I respect where I come from.”
