Gay community gains support in the dancehall

Cheap international flights

The increased exposure of fans supporting the LBGT movement in the Jamaica dancehall scene is stunning.  Mark ‘Buju’ Myrie is serving time in prison allegedly for drugs.  Many perceptions have supported his homophobic lyrics that may have contributed to the demise of the reggae star.  His "Boom bye bye, in a batty bwoy head/Rude boy nah promote no nasty man, dem hafi dead," the notorious track originally released in 1988 and re-released in 1992.  Buju Banton won the coveted Grammy in 2011 dealing with sociopolitical topics. RELATED STORY Gay Lifestyle in the dancehall arena

There are many artistes who craved the hype and introduced their raunchy version of debasement, such as Sizzla ‘Kalonji’ Bounty Killer, Beenie man, Ninjaman and  Shabba Ranks who won two Grammy from his arsenal of hits have released homophobic tracks that expressed their state of mind on Gay lifestyle. “Even as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire”  Jude 1:7 and they are many verses that depicts this lifestyle.

The genre has economic and spiritual advantages, but the stance taking by some of these mainstream artistes are incorrect. These negative lyrics that are projected by these songs literally affect the business and have caused bloodbath, including death.  The understanding from a spiritual perspective is individualized, because our father who art in heaven gave his only begotten son for our sins. So why does people pass judgments based on their perspective?  For real, it’s a state of colloquialism, because if the LGBT community supported every promoter on each event, the economic gain would negate all controversy.

These incidents are not localized, in Europe, these lyrics are unprecedented in the hard-man world of dancehall music, where the best known performers have, for over a decade, made homophobic music as their repertoire - inciting and glorifying the shooting, killing, hanging and drowning of LGBT community. I have personally experienced an effeminate man that called himself a ‘lesbian’ because the homophobic lifestyle suits his image. Realated Link: Jamaica, It nice so 'til

“Out of many one people” is the motto that should stand up for justice of its citizens. After-all, people are just people, don’t judge or make any assumptions. We are like music, some are realistic and others are simply confusing.
