Ninja Man Blast Sting Promoters “Stop Disrespecting Artists” {VIDEO}

Sting Promoters Pulls Plug On 2016 Blames Vybz Kartel Absence From Dancehall {VIDEO}

Ninja Man is reacting to Sting promoters recent announcement that they have pulled the plug on the 2016 staging of the annual dancehall show. 

Last week Isaiah Laing and Heavy announced that Sting 2016 is officially canceled. While that may not come as a surprise to some dancehall artists, what was surprising for Ninja Man was a statement the promoters made about not having the headline acts since Vybz Kartel’s incarceration. In a video posted on his social media page, the Don Gorgon shot back saying that the headline acts are right here at home but the promoters refused to pay them to perform.

“Me Ninja Man is saying this, we are tightening up the dancehall unity because look how disrespectful you are,” the dancehall legend said. Ninja also laid out a long list of artists who he thinks can headline Sting and draw huge crowd including Busy Signal, Aidonia, Romaine Virgo, Tarrus Riley, Chris Martin, Bounty Killer, Beenie Man, Popcaan, Masicka, and more.

“They are wicked and don’t want to pay the artists, the deejays that can mashup the stage shows you guys don’t want to pay them and then telling a bag of lies, I alone can perform,” Ninja Man rants.

The iconic deejay went as far as to demand an apology from Laing and Heavy or else no big name artist will ever perform on the show again. “If we don’t get a public apology we are not performing on the show again,” Ninja added.

Ninja Man is one of the foundation icons of dancehall who made a name performing and clashing on Sting in the early days of the festival. Sting has been an annual event for over 30 years and this year is the first time that the show is being canceled leading us to believe this is the beginning of the end of an era in dancehall.

Sting promoters have officially announced that they have canceled the 2016 staging of the concert. Vybz Kartel‘s incarceration has a big role to play in the demise of the show.

Supreme Promotions principals Isaiah Laing and Heavy D sat down for an interview with Winford Williams where they break down why the show was axed this year. “Headline artists… The last two three years the headline acts just wasn’t there so there was no crowd at Sting,” Heavy D said. 

The promoter attribute that void in headline acts to the absence of Vybz Kartel from dancehall for the last five years. “Since Kartel gone [prison] its sad but the headline move, so we can’t get back that type of headline right now,” he added. “You can have 50 artists to work but if you don’t have two [hot artists] the other 48 don’t count.”

Only a few days ago Ninja Man revealed that there will be no Sting 2016 and that he is in fear of his life due to his fallout with the head of the music festival Isaiah Laing.

The promoters also revealed that some artists shy away from the concert because they are afraid of the audience. “It is known worldwide that Sting is the hardest audience to please, because from you put your first foot forward and open your mouth you will get the boo or give you the bottles,” Isaiah Laing said.

That statement we can all agree with because Sting is known to be a tough audience and usually made up of hardcore dancehall fans. Despite canceling the show for this year, Laing says that Sting will return for next year but likely in a different format. The businessman added that he will also be giving awards to artists/entertainers who have supported Sting over the years. Bounty Killer and Ninja Man are two of the names put forward.

{VIDEO} JAMAICA STING 2013 performances by SUPERCAT + 2 CHAINZ + WYCLEF + SIZZLA + CLASH BETWEEN LADY SAW & MACKA DIAMOND + ROMAIN VIRGO and watch BLAK RYNO KILL KIPRICH

Lady Saw maybe getting a lot of praise for her performance at Sting after defeating Macka Diamond, but the dancehall queen is not happy about her raunchy behavior.

Speaking with the Observer, Lady Saw called her behavior on stage degrading to women and vow to never clash another female artist again.

 

“I am not happy about my performance and behaviour,” Lady Saw said. “I have stayed away from such clashes over the years, and always said I would never clash with another female artiste as I find it degrading to women and so I have always avoided a clash.”Saw says she made the decision to clash Macka Diamond because she was provoked and wanted to take a stand.

“I was provoked,” Lady Saw said. “An alliance has been formed against me by some other female artistes and all they do is take jabs at me, make up stories… I could not take it anymore. I was just very angry about all these years of them accusing me of trying to bring down other females in the business and I just exploded. I apologise to my fans in Jamaica and all over the world for a performance which was degrading to both of us as women.”

 

Lady Saw victory over Macka Diamond during their Sting 30 clash was profound and echoed throughout dancehall worldwide.

Both dancehall divas have been at war over the last few years, some of which aired out on Twitter.

"We repeatedly told Sizzla not to do any hate music and he went up there and did it. D'Angel is banned for at least 5 years as a patron. We don't need your money D'Angel. Stay home. Watch the event on pay-per-view next year."

Wyclef Jean, Mavado, Lady Saw Rule Sting 2013

Sting promoters are congratulating themselves right now after pulling off what has been one of the best shows we’ve seen in years.

After building up the hype leading up to the event on December 26 at Jamworld, Portmore, Laing and his co-promoters delivered a well organized event with a jam packed audience.

In the early part of the night the venue was approximately half full, but fans started strolling in after midnight in huge numbers. By then all the big name acts were getting ready to take the stage starting with a mammoth performance from Wyclef Jean.

But the big question is who took Sting 2013?

 

The former Fugee frontman set the bar so high it was almost impossible for anyone to top. But Lady Saw and Mavado held their own on the 30th anniversary of the greatest one night reggae show on earth.

So we can safely say that Sting 2013 is between Wyclef Jean, Mavado, and Lady Saw.

Wyclef who is no newbie to the Jamaican audience was a crowd pleaser from the moment he went on stage at midnight.

“I look forward to the clash, Jamaica I love you free Vybz Kartel,” Wyclef said at the end of his high energy set.

In the middle of his set, Wyclef made his way through the VIP section towards the back with no security around him.

“This must be the VIP section I gotta go to the back, excuse me because I am trying to get the energy from you all but y’all siting down and killing my vibe,” Clef said after climbing up on the camera man’s chair and pulled up Vybz Kartel’s “Business.”

2 Chainz took the stage after Wyclef and was a major disappointment, perhaps the biggest disappointment of the night. His profanity laced set was not well received by the dancehall massives. The Atlanta rapper delivered a medley of some of his biggest hits but did not want to leave the stage after his allotted time ended.

sizzla

Supreme Promotions has issued a ban on Sizzla Kalonji from performing on Sting in the future.
The development came just a week after Sizzla put on a fiery performance against homosexuals at Sting 2013 at Jamworld, Portmore.
According to Isiah Laing, Sizzla Kalonji was warned repeatedly about anti-gay and hate lyrics.
But Sizzla Kalonji says he could care less about the ban.
A rep for the “Thank You Mama” singjay said that Sizzla is staying true to what he believes in and is expressing his freedom of speech.
“We are all allowed that fundamental right called freedom of speech,” his rep said.

 

“Sting know Sizzla’s principle and knows he like to freely express himself on stage. This is how Sizzla perform everywhere for his core fan base. We care zero about this ban.”
The rep also made mention about rapper 2 Chainz expletives laced performance and questioned why he was not banned also.
“2 Chainz came down here and curse a lot of badwords so why was he not banned from Sting,” the rep questioned. “This is how we like to fight against our own artists.”
Sting promoters have also issued a lifetime banned on D’Angel from even entering the venue.
