Reggae artist Sizzla’s swedish concert cancelled over anti-gay lyrics

By

26 MARCH,2012

Artiste Sizzla Kalonji has had the Swedish leg of his European tour cancelled on account of the anti-gay lyrics which feature in his music.


Sizzla was scheduled to perform later this month in Stockholm but public condemnation of the artist, whose lyrics have incited violence against gay people, led organizers to call off the date.

Other concerts in the tour are still planned for Italy, France, Belgium, Norway, the Netherlands and Spain. This is not the first time that Organizers have cancelled Sizzla’s tour because of anti-gay lyrics. Concerts by Sizzla have been cancelled in the UK in 2004 and in Toronto in 2007.

In 2008, he was denied a visa for the 29 European countries then signed up to the Schengen agreement after a German LGBT group appealed to their government. Sizzla was stopped at Madrid airport that year and returned to the US. In July 2007, Sizzla and numerous other acts signed up to the Reggae Compassionate Act in a deal brokered with top reggae promoters and Stop Murder Music activists.

The Act reads: “It must be clear there’s no space in the music community for hatred and prejudice, including no place for racism, violence, sexism or homophobia… we do not encourage nor minister to HATE but rather uphold a philosophy of LOVE, RESPECT and UNDERSTANDING towards all human beings as the cornerstone of reggae.”

The European tour dates are believed to be Sizzla’s first major appearances since a motorcycle accident late last year led to widespread reports he had died.
