Demarco Being Criticized For Explicit Music Video “Ride”
Demarco raised the bar a notch with his new music video “Ride.”
The music video hit YouTube earlier this week and has been creating quite a buzz in dancehall for how graphic it is.
Dancehall fans have been voicing their opinion on YouTube, mostly condemning the dancehall deejay for going a bit too far.
The video saw Demarco getting a call from his jumpoff telling him to come over. Later in the video, the dancehall star gets completely nude with two other females.
Demarco people released a statement to Urban Islandz addressing the controversy surrounding the music video.
“Amidst all the tattering (which is much ado about nothing), it is important to note that my video is intended for mature audiences only. This is explicitly stated at the beginning of the visuals, which contain nothing most ‘mature’ individuals have not seen or been exposed to in their lifetime. As a further precautionary measure, the video was never released via any of my official outlets (Twitter, Youtube, Facebook, Instagram, etc.), but unfortunately perpetuated to social media platforms by overzealous individuals.”
“The hypocrisy of our society is so paradoxical; accusing me of lechery, yet here’s the real truth – only weeks earlier I was the good Samaritan saving a woman’s from the clutches of death after she cracked her skull in a severe car accident outside my studio compound. myself and my team rushed her to hospital.”
“Aside from a selected few, no one saw the need to highlight this. I also donated a sizeable contribution in back-to-school supplies to various inner-city children in Kenya and Jamaica, another deed treated with utmost inattention.”
“The focus that is being thrust upon this video should be given to matters such as the disenfranchised youths of this country, the rising rate of unemployment, lack of proper infrastructure for our children to learn, squatting, the crime epidemic, among other social issues.”
