Religious fraternity rejoices after Tommy Lee was denied Entry into Dominica


The religious fraternity here believes that God has answered its prayers in light of the detention of dancehall artiste, Tommy Lee Sparta, after he was denied entry into Dominica on Sunday.

“All I have to say is we praise God greatly … he has shown to us that when his people come together and begin to pray with a united heart that God responds to the prayer of his people,” Chairman of the Dominica Association of Evangelical Churches (DAEC), Pastor Joseph Benjamin, told DNO on Monday. “I think God has said to Dominica that he has not forgotten Dominica, and he loves this nation and he wants to protect this country.”

DAEC has been one of the groups to openly oppose the appearance of Tommy Lee in a concert slated for last Sunday night.

The organization made its opinion known some weeks aback in a release which said it expresses “deep concerns with the decision by a local business entity/promoter to invite entertainer Tommy Lee Sparta to feature at a planned concert.”

It called for a boycott of the concert on the basis that “the lyrics of the music by Sparta promotes violence, a phenomenon that we are currently grappling with in our nation…”

Tommy Lee was denied entry and detained in Dominica on Sunday.

When asked whether or not the religious fraternity has the right dictate what type of music the general public listens to, Benjamin said no, but DAEC took a position on the matter and prayed.

“We do not have the right to do that, we took a position, we prayed, we believe God and we believe that whatever happens it will just be for the honour and glory of God,” he stated. “We do not have a right to decide for people what they want to listen to, who they want to listen to. We do not have that power, we do not have that right.”

He, however, noted that the religious community has a responsibility to do whatever is possible to protect Dominica, “from the inflow of any negative information that will affect this country in a negative way … we will speak against it.”

Authorities are yet to disclose to the public why Sparta who was to perform at a concert in Portsmouth on Sunday night, has been refused entry into Dominica.
