Well, it would seem the Netherlands wants nothing to do with Dancehall/Reggae star Sizzla or his homophobic rhymes. It’s been reported that the artist has been banned from singing at the Melkweg festival in Amsterdam in March. This comes on the heels of Sizzla’s anti-gay performance at Jamaica’s annual Sting event, a musical extravaganza that features the top performers from around the world (past lineups have included Wyclef Jean, 2 Chainz and Beenie Man). Sting’s promoters have also severed ties with the artist and have made it clear that they will not tolerate nor promote homophobia in any form. Here, here! That’s what we like to see! Granted, Jamaica and The Netherlands have a long way to go in securing human rights for all, but at least it’s a step in the right direction. We’ll categorize this as an “A for Effort” moment and wait to see how it all pans out for the star.
