Sizzla 2014

Sizzla removed from upcoming festival in the Netherlands for singing anti-gay lyrics

Sizzla 2014Reggae/Dancehall star, Sizzla Kalonji is once again facing heat for his stances against homosexuality following his recent performance at STING 2013 as organizers for an upcoming festival in the Netherlands have removed him from their lineup, according to reports Tuesday.

The revered singer will not perform his scheduled gig at the Melkweg festival on March 16 in Amsterdam after organizers were made aware of Sizzla’s set at STING 2013, where he spoke out against gay relationships throughout.

Organizers said they did not want to offer a stage to any artist who sings ‘very hurtful and hateful lyrics.’

Patrons who had purchased tickets to see Sizzla will be refunded, according to organizers. Sizzla has yet to respond to the organizers’ stance.

This development comes days after STING organizers banned the entertainer for ‘promoting hate music,’ saying they warned him not to sing such lyrics during his performance, which was broadcast on pay-per-view to viewers worldwide.

Sizzla is among five artists nominated for the Best Reggae Album award at this year’s Grammy Awards, set to take place on Jan. 26 in Los Angeles.

Sizzla, D’Angel banned from STING, says Isaiah Laing

Sizzla and D'AngelDays after giving what some said was the best performance of STING 2013, Reggae singer, Sizzla Kalonji has been banned from future editions of the show by its lead promoter, Isaiah Laing, for alleged hate lyrics performed during his set, according to reports Tuesday evening.

The Grammy-nominated artist gave a rousing, hard-hitting set during the 30th anniversary show, in which he spoke out strongly against homosexuality, negative connotations attached to marijuana, among other societal issues. According to Laing, Sizzla’s ban comes as result of continuous rants against homosexuals throughout his performance, which went against a pre-show agreement with organizers not to sing anti-gay lyrics during his set.
