ISIAH LAING BANS SIZZLA KALONJI & D'ANGEL FROM STING

 

According to Laing, Sizzla has been banned because he was repeatedly warned not to go on stage during the Boxing Day event and promote hate music.

Laing continued that although D'Angel was not booked for the show, she is banned as a patron because of her "embarrassing" stint during Ninja Man's set.

"We repeatedly told Sizzla not to do any hate music and he went up there and did it. D'Angel is banned for at least 5 years as a patron. We don't need your money D'Angel. Stay home. Watch the event on pay-per-view next year."

In a release to the media, the promoters of Sting - Supreme Promotions and Downsound Records - stated that that they have taken steps to force "corrective actions" from some artistes.

"We remain committed to advancing Reggae/dancehall music and the industry. We will continue to strive to improve our product and are confident that with your support we will achieve our aim," a spokesperson said.

PRGirlAngel Views-
While D'angels impromptu "performance" was a bit "much", quite honestly, it was not any more slack than some other female performers. Therefore, the explanation of her being banned because of embarrassment sounds more like an excuse, making the decision seem more justified. Simply put, she was not booked for Sting, and jumping on stage more than once, was done in bad judgment. Banning her for 5 years does seem extreme. I am interested to hear what the outspoken female deejay has to say about this.
 
Sizzla will never stop the fire from burning! Anyone booking Sizzla for any type of event is fully aware of this. He has never waivered his views and outspoken lyrics against gays, and injustice, so why would they think he would do it for Sting?
 
Sting was a great production this year. From the vibrant stage to the artist performances, however, because for the first time the stage show was broadcast on pay per view, organizers may have expected artist to water down their performances for a broader audience. Sorry, not gonna happen! Sting is Sting, and should not, and could not be watered down by any means.
