Whenever Sizzla touches the stage, expect him to stir up trouble with his words. On Friday night last, it was no different. Strangely this happened at Pulse modelling agency's headquarters on Trafalgar Road which in all truthfulness has honed several gay and bisexual models careers(though they're not out) and is the industry is known for doing such as it attracts a large LGBT following and budding models who want to be on the biggest campaigns out there? I have no doubt members of the LGBTQ populations were there in attendance as their events do attract a hip uptown crowd and it can be argued that some wanna be downtowners like these uptown dancehall events to pretend to be rudebois and dancehall girls.
Patrons who attended part 2 of the MVP series, held at Pulse headquarters, Trafalgar Road, New Kingston, St Andrew, came out to see one person, dancehall artiste Sizzla, so their patience was wearing thin when, at minutes to three in the morning, the entertainer still had not graced the stage.
Thankfully, experienced DJ Sanjay kept the party going, mixing on the turntables. He managed to keep the audience entertained with a slew of hits from all genres, including hip hop and R& B.
The moment everyone was waiting arrived as Sizzla took to the stage shortly after 3 a.m. Making his agenda known from the start, the deejay proceeded to lash out against homosexuality, much to the audience's delight.
His anti-gay lyrics were met with heavy forwards and a barrage of blanks as the audience agreed with his every word. He hinted to the recent JFJ contoversy and the children's homes also linking homosexuality to paedophilia, a conflation that has been deliberately used to justify anti gay sentiments.
Still, there were patrons who wanted to see the artiste perform their favourite songs, but were forced to wait until the entertainer was through with his lyrical onslaught as he took a good time on stage doing so. He did perform a few of his hits and the audience loved every minute of it. Unfortunately we see that some acts still are holding on to using antigay songs and murder music to remain relevant as they cannot produce more or better quality lyrics which strangely he also has in his repertoire. Sizzla somehow refused to use them moreso than to resort to "burning out" homosexuality as it were.
They were also given a little extra when Sizzla invited Munga Honourable and Blak Ryno, aka Ryno the Stinger, to the stage. Both entertainers gave a brief performance as the night drew to a close. When the Star team left the venue, minutes to 4, the party was still in full swing.
