Sizzla Still performed in Stockholm dispite strong protest against his lyrics
Reggae superstar Sizzla Kalonji will perform in Stockholm on Wednesday March 28, 2012 despite strong protests against his "anti-gay" lyrics, even though the show had initially been cancelled by promoters.
We carried a story ealier which states that Sizzla show was cancelled because of his anti-gay lyrics.
Even though the show will still be held, Westerlund is urging people with tickets to the show at the Hornstull Strand in Stockholm to reconsider their choice, and is calling for future performances by Sizzla, 35, to be called off.
"It should go without saying that gigs should not be booked for this man," she said in a statement.
The chairman of RFSL, Rickard Svahn, is calling for promoters to take a stand against the concert as it may tarnish the capital's reputation of being gay friendly.
"Stockholm usually ends up at the top in ranking of world's most gay friendly cities. For it to remain so requires organizers to take responsibility and take a stand against homophobic artists," said Svahn in a statement.
The concert was initially cancelled earlier this month when event organizers have acknowledged the public outcry and petition, and decided that Sizzla’s messages were in breach of their code of conduct.
However, due to popular demand, Sizzla and the so called “Reggae Compassionate Act" have been given the go ahead.READ MORE ABOUT SIZZLA KALONJI
