The singer will now perform in Bradford and east London as long as he guarantees tour venue managers he will not sing homophobic, racist or sexist lyrics.
?Sizzla Kalonji does not merely express his disapproval of homosexuality,” said Brett Lock of OutRage! and the Stop Murder Music campaign in a statement. “He calls for all homosexuals to be killed and incited his listeners to murder gays and lesbians. This goes way beyond an acceptable expression of opinion. Lesbian and gay people have a right to live their lives free from threats to kill them.”
Sizzla is the latest star to be targeted by the group. Police are already reportedly examining lyrics by Beenie Man, Elephant Man, Bounty Killer, Capleton, TOK, Vybz Kartel and Buju Banton “to determine whether any criminal offence has been committed.? Gay-bashing mainstream singers have remained virtually unnoticed by the group which to date, has only targeted black reggae singers from Jamaica.
