Gay & Lesbian Community in Canada forces Promoter of Rastafest to drop Queen Ifrica from line-up
Reports are that the promoters of Canada’s Rastafest have bent to the gay and lesbian community following their protest to have Queen Ifrica pulled from the event.
Masani Montague the main organizer for Rastafest said “Due to circumstances beyond our control Queen Ifrica will not be performing at RASTAFEST.”
Reports are that the promoter’s decision to pull Queen Ifrica came from Canada-based gay group, The Jamaica Association of Gays and Lesbians Abroad who viciously advocated for the minister of Citizen and Immigration Canada (CIC) to withdraw the work permit issued to Queen Ifrica to perform at Rastafest International Reggae Concert at Downsview Park tomorrow (Saturday, August 24).
The calls to have Queen Ifrica axed came following the comments she made during her Grand Gala performance at the National Stadium.
The artiste has since hit back with a song in which she chants "What happen to my freedom of speech".
