Sizzla is not the only one hitting back at Sting promoters over the recent ban. Dancehall diva D’Angel has also respond to the ban saying she is a grown woman.
A week after staging a successful Sting 2013 at Jamworld, Portmore, chief promoter Isiah Laing released a statement saying they have issued a ban against Sizzla Kalonji and D’Angel over their behavior on the show.
“What kind of image is D’Angel portraying as a mother?” Isiah Laing says. 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.”
But according to D’Angel, she is a grown woman and she did not do anything on Sting that has not been done before.
This is what D’Angel told the Star:
“As a grown woman and an artiste, I am entitled to entertain and perform. I have been watching Sting from I was a child and there is nothing that I did on stage at Sting that was far-fetched from all the things that have happened on that stage over the years.”
“I haven’t done anything different from what has always been done at Sting. I have never seen it become a problem before, so why is it now that they are making a big mountain out of it? I went on stage with ‘The King of the Dancehall’ Beenie Man and the fans loved it, I went on stage with ‘The King of Sting’ Ninja Man and the crowd loved it. The opportunity presented itself to perform for my fans and I did that and they all loved it.”
