It's a high degree of compromise and still not acceptable in jamaica, africa and all nations that truly fear Master God.We will continue musically killing of batty man yesterday, today and tomorrow.Any artiste who signs the said compromise act is a traitor.

Here's a suggestion:
Keep your dutty music on the island. You can eat, sleep and shit your stupid homophobic views, just as long as it's not in a country that supports human rights.

Don't you ever set foot abroad, b/c your ignorant ass will not be tolerated.

freedom to love and the freedom to not. gays are barking up the wrong tree, like they can even understand the lyrics anyways. They are just bored obviously, if you dont like it dont go see it, simple. But Im going to go and get as many of these classic recordings as possible before the bitches have them banned..boom bye

This is why they signed the agreement. They realized how many Jamaicans literally take their lyrics. You are the reason why they had to sign. You are living proof that their music does influence and condone inhumane behaviour.

If this is what it takes to get sizla to perform in the U.K then so be it. I would rather see sizla without the anti gay lyrics than not see him at all.All i can say to Peter Thatchell(who stopped sizla performing in the uk in 2004) WHAT HAPPENED TO FREEDOM OF SPEECH (freedom to express your like or dislike)

Freedom of speech ends when it encourages MURDER.

Sizzla is still saying the same old shit in concert- just putting "personally" in front of it. It sounds pretty stupid, too- like he couldnt think of anything else to say, so, might as well throw out another "burn sodomites" or "burn lesbians" or whatever. Just saw him Saturday night, his dj was shit, and he "performed" for about a half an hour, tops.
