D’Angel Speaks on Sting Ban

dangel ninjaThe chief promoter Isiah Laing who issued the ban against Sizzla and D’angel over their behavior spoke about the situation.

“What kind of image is D’Angel portraying as a mother? 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 are banning D’Angel as a patron also. We don’t want your money D’Angel. Stay home. Watch the event on pay-per-view.”

D’angel decided to release a statement via 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.”

Sizzla who was also warned to behave was also issued a ban. They told him to not promote hate music but he did it regardless.

The promoter went on to explain his views on the event :” 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. 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. We have written to the artistes about their behaviour at the event, and we are committed to further steps when and where necessary. We thank the public and our sponsors for their continuous support, without which we would not have been able to boast three decades of existence. We remain committed to advancing reggae, dancehall music, and the industry. We will continue to strive to improve our product and are confident that with your support we will achieve our aim.”
