Hardcore dancehall artiste Buju Banton joins Beenie Man and Sizzla on their campaign of not doing violent songs against any class or race. This contract is led by the Gay Rights community and their aim is to have all dancehall/reggae artistes sign this contractual agreement.
Wanted by Gay Rights
Elephant Man, TOK, Bounty Killa and Vybz Kartel are the other artistes that the Gay Rights group said needs to sign this contract in order for gay people to support their career. It is evident that since this immense campaign Jamaican artistes who were on the list of singing violent anti-gay lyrics have lost in total more than over 6 million dollars yearly.
OutAroad.com went on the road and asked the question, “Do you think Jamaican artistes should yield to Gay Rights Group, of not having the rights to do violent anti-gay lyrics?
Dumar, age: 23, “I am not a supporter for the gay people but I think both parties need to sign, meaning, I am not comfortable with gay people hugging in public because I have children and what do you think my kids will believe when they see two men hugging and kissing in public – and that is not right and I would love for the gay people to look at it from that point of view. And them damn artiste are the ones who cost this plague on themselves because you only sings about things that you are afraid to be because them are not man enough, from you know that you will not let a next stand behind you, don’t sing about these people.”
Kalvin, age: 27, I do not care about these artistes and them problems and I do not like to talk about gay people because they are waste matters, all we of to do is just leave them let them live. This is what we should do - give the gay people a country where all them stay and tell me how long you think their nasty population will last for. Man to man can’t bring forth a child like wise woman to woman.
Chevrona, age: 21, I have gay friends who likes dancehall music and all they do is support the clean songs, I think we all have the rights to say what we want to say and do what we want to do, but we should not incite violence against anyone. God gave all of us the rights to choose our way of living.
