Anti-gay lyrics cause Sizzla concert cutTop Highlights, Entertainment News Thursday, March 29th, 2012
Reggae artist Sizzla has been banned from performing in Stockholm, Sweden after his anti-gay lyrics had sparked outrage among Swedish music-lovers. The Local reported that Sizzla, real name Sizzla Kalonji, 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 cancel the show which was titled The Reggae Compassionate Act.
Sizzla, 35, is currently on a European tour and in each venue that he has played members of the gay community have been outraged.
Killing homosexuals and burning them is a theme in several of the Rastafarian’s songs, and he has been banned from performing in Canada and England.
Other concerts in the tour are still planned for Italy, France, Belgium, Norway, the Netherlands and Spain.
