Are Dancehall Artiste Forced To Perform Under Their Birth Name On Reggae Festivals In Jamaica?

Are Reggae festivals in Jamaica forcing Dancehall artiste to start doing reggae music in order to get book.


Recently i've noticed a trend in that most dancehall artists when they are booked for a reggae festival in Jamaica, they are told what type songs they can perform.

One such event is Rebel Salute. Rebel Salute is a family reggae festival, for the 2017 stage dancehall artiste Beenie Man and Popcaan was booked. Both artists was advertise as Beenie Man performing as Mose Davis and Popcaan performing as Andrae Sutherland.

Veteran dancehall artiste Bounty Killer also recently performed in Kingston, Jamaica at a Reggae event and he was billed as Rodney Pryce not Bounty Killer.

This seems to be a new trends as the festivals which caters to hardcore dancehall music are slowing dying in Jamaica.
