Sizzla no longer welcomed at Netherlands’ Melkweg festival- BUT CHECK DI BOTTOM A DI ARTICLE

AMSTERDAM, Netherlands (CMC) – Organisers have withdrawn a request for Jamaican dancehall singer, Sizzla to perform at the ‘Melkweg’ show later this year because of his anti-gay lyrics, the promoters have said.

They said Sizzla, whose real name is Miguel Collins, was due to perform at the March 16 show and that patrons who had already purchased tickets would be refunded.

Melkweg said it had been made aware of Sizzla’s performance at a recent show in Jamaica where he did a song against gay relationships.

Melkweg said it does not want to provide a stage to anyone who sings such “very hurtful and hateful lyrics”.

In 2007, Sizzla signed a document renouncing previous anti-gay statements. He had also promised not to sing anti-gay songs on European stages.

    A contract is binding, do your job and keep it moving.
    Sizzla agreed to something he was not in agreement with, he agreed not to partake in any form off anti-gayism, lyrically or vocally and he reniged. Can’t do dat when contracts are involved: this will cripple him financially!!! :berduka

  10. a backlash inevitable when you choose not to play white man rules. Sizzla know the road for years an don’t care . Laing know the global road come different all advertisement, sponsors and the wider global audience not gonna tolerate certain things . New era now ,dance hall is a product to be sold and repackaged to a wider audience,minus the rough edges. Organizers booking Sizzla for sting played a neat hand in keeping the corporate dons happy. You’ve been warned ppl more to come..

  11. I am a bit confused. Did Sizzla sign a contract to NEVER sing anti-gay lyrics or to not sing them on European stage? Because the last sentence stated: that he promised not to sing them on European stages. Somebody please clarify this for me

  12. This dude wasting his career fighting a losing battle. These people are who they are. They now own the ‘tickets’ of entry to every 1st world nation. Just leave these people alone. Yu notice all Capleton has toned down the rhetoric in recent years. Right now, look deh… Kalonji soon cyaan pass Norman Manley. smh!

  13. OK NOW WE ARE DESCENDING DOWN THIS SLIPPERY SLOPE OF CONSENT WID DI BATTY GAYS AND CARPET MUNCHERS. ME SEE A ARTICLE THE OTHER DAY WHERE THE PEDOPHILES ARE NOW SAYING THIER RIGHTS ARE BEING VIOLATED AND THEY HAVE THE RIGHT TO LOVE LIKKLE PICKNEY. THEM SEH THEM BEING DISCRIMINATED LIKE THE BAATTY BWOY AND MUNCHER DEM. SO NEXT TING WE KNOW WE LIKKLE PICKNEY SOON FALL VICTIM AND WE NAH GO HAVE A LEG FI TANUPPAN. THOSE WHO DO NOT TAKE A STAND SHALL FALL VICTIM. ME NO KNOW WHY THEM NO GO AFRICA AND TELL CERTAIN AFRICAN NATION WHAT DEM CAN AND CANNOT SAY. DEM WILL LOSE NOT ONLY DEM HOOD BUT DEM LIFE. A LIKKLE JAMDUNG DEM A TEK SET PON. SIZZLA FI JUST HOLD UP HIM HEAD THE LORD WILL VINDICATE HIM NO MATTER HOW DI BATTY GAYS DEM A RAIL. GOD A GOD
