Sting Promoter Isaiah Laing Banned Sizzla & D'Angel from his Show


Days after giving what some said was the best performance of STING 2013, Reggae singer, Sizzla Kalonji has been banned from future editions of the show by its lead promoter, Isaiah Laing, for alleged hate lyrics performed during his set, according to reports Tuesday evening.

The Grammy-nominated artist gave a rousing, hard-hitting set during the 30th anniversary show, in which he spoke out strongly against homosexuality, negative connotations attached to marijuana, among other societal issues. According to Laing, Sizzla's ban comes as result of continuous rants against homosexuals throughout his performance, which went against a pre-show agreement with organizers not to sing anti-gay lyrics during his set.

"Sizzla was warned repeatedly before going onstage about not promoting hate music and he went up there and did it repeatedly," the Supreme Promotions CEO told the Jamaica Gleaner. "We are going international and we warned every artiste before they went on to the stage."

Meanwhile, D’Angel is also in hot water with Laing after giving a controversial set of her own at STING. The popular deejay was banned for at least five years as a patron following a clash with Ninja Man for what Laing called an ‘embarrassing’ stint. During the impromptu set, D’Angel surprised the crowd when during her performance, she spread her legs multiple times while only wearing a short dress. She also made several references to needing to pay for her son’s school fee as she was not initially booked to do the show.



Both bans were reportedly confirmed on Saturday following a meeting.

"What kind of image is D'Angel portraying as a mother? he told The Gleaner. "She's saying she came to clash but that's not how the clash went. It was not about Ninja Man, she embarrassed herself. At least a five-year ban for D'Angel."

“We don't need your money D'Angel. Stay home. Watch the event on pay-per-view next year," Laing continued.

A press release, issued by STING 30 promoters on Tuesday illustrated the organizers' frustration with some of the acts during their performances, saying they were, "inconsistent with their efforts to provide energetic and authentic Jamaican entertainment."

"We believe that our artistes will take note of the observations which will assist us in effecting the kinds of control that we have been working assiduously to maintain and introduce," the statement continued. "We wish to commend the majority of artistes who appeared on the show and performed in accordance with the standards which are reflective of our objectives."

"Sharp lyrical exchanges and colorful performances are staples of our annual offering, however, in accordance with our efforts to internationalize the event, we strive to ensure that the performances conform to accepted standards of decency and decorum."

STING 30 was broadcast to overseas viewers, via pay-per-view and a live stream worth just under $US40 each.
