Sizzla Kalonji has been axed from a show in the Netherlands following his stance against homosexuality.
Sizzla was scheduled to perform at the Melkweg festival on March 16 in Amsterdam but organizers say they pulled the plug after they were made aware of Sizzla’s set at STING 2013.
According to reports, organizers said they did not want to offer a stage to any artist who sings ‘very hurtful and hateful lyrics.’ Patrons who had purchased tickets to see Sizzla will be refunded.
Meanwhile, efforts to get a comment from Sizzla proved futile.
All this comes following STING organizers decision to ban the entertainer for ‘promoting hate music.
