D’Angel & Delus speak about the Broadcasting Commission’s "Daggering" actions

The Jamaica Broadcasting Commission recently instructed all Radio, TV Stations and Cable Operators to remove all songs that have beeping/bleeping and those that associate with the word Daggering. However, most industry insiders are not totally against the Broadcasting Commission decision, but would prefer if the Commission had given a deadline as to when these songs should be removed.

Outaroad.com caught up with D’Angel at the gym who seems to be getting ready to march against the Broadcasting Commission’s drastic decision with fellow artists, producers and other key players in the music industry.”I am not known for using explicit lyrics in my songs, but on the same note I am a part of the culture so whatever is imposed on the music industry, obviously will affects me too."

The ‘Stronger’ hit maker D’Angel also argued that the instant banning of daggering/edited songs is not the way to solved the problem. “The Commission could have handled the situation better I am not against their decision of ridding the airwaves of these songs, but they should have given an extension which would have given the radio jocks and the TV stations more time to embraced the ban.”

Apart from the banning of songs, D’Angel believes it’s time for her fellow entertainers to take a new root in the way they write their songs. “If the Broadcasting Commission does not lift the ban, this will definitely force us to be even more creative with the outcome of our lyrical contents.”

Jamaica’s newest sensation Delus who’s known for his Gangsta Remix with Mavado ft Vybz Kartel and his recent hit single True Love also shares a similar outlook as D’Angel. “I know it’s right for us to protect our children from airing these songs but at the same time the Broadcasting Commission should have given a deadline.”

Mr. True Lover Delus also gives a positive solution as to what the Broadcasting Commission should have done. “I am not trying to instruct the Commission as to how they should operate; I am just voicing my opinion on the best way to solve the problem. Instead of banning the songs in the manner they did I think they should have requested for those songs to be removed from day time broadcasting and to only be played at nights.”

However, the big question is can we really stop the children of Jamaica from not hearing or getting a hold of these Daggering songs?

Music is suppose to ease the soul, I don't see how 'daggering songs' are doing that in my view, BUT there is an audience for it so I agree with Delus, a ban shouldn't have been placed on the songs, it should have been handled better by placing these in a time better suited for the contents! In Jamaica we are free to express our self in anyway ,shape or form and this shouldn't be a problem because "the upper people" of society don't agree with it...There wasn't a problem when the Carnival was showcase on National T.V, where u could see half naked people winning and grining on each other, What about that? Doesn't that harm our kids? These people have to be fair and treat every JAMAICAN with the same respect and give ALL the same treatment! This ban will not stop the kids from hearing "daggering"songs as many people will still make the choice to play it in their homes, they will hear it on buses and in cabs. That's why it's imporant to RAISE YOUR KIDS, SPEND TIME WITH THEM, TEACH THEM WRONG AND RIGHT AND THEN HOPE THAT THEY MAKE THE RIGHT DECISIONS.

I am so glad our government has finally decided that enough is enough,with our deteriorating culture reggae music is the only thing left that attracts visitors to our sure and for the past couple of years even that has been diminishing. When the kidnapping of our women and children were ravaging our island why didnt D'angel and her entertainment posse round up their gang and said "ENOUGH",bout dem waaa protest ban! who is unu fi get time limit! GU WRITE SOME MUSIC WE UPLIFT JAMAICA!

I do not think the broadcasting commision should have totally banned the songs but put a censor on them where the TV, Radio, and CAble stations cannot air these types of songs at any givng time. During th day these songs should ahve a clean version where the explicit words are replace with other words. and at nights say 11pm they can play them. if people want to play these songs let them play them in their homes for them and their kids to listen to it as for the buses and taxis and private cars who decide that the whole world want here what they are listening to, there should be a fine or for playing these songs out loud and if they persist then threaten them with jail time. I am not from uptowm born a grow in the garrison but the entertainers and tv, and radio personel and parents need to show some resposibilty on this matter.

I MUST SAY, I AM ANXIOUSLY WAITING TO SEE HOW THIS UNFOLDS.I,FOR ONE, DO NOT THINK A COMPLETE BAN IS WARRANTED.I UNDERSTAND WHAT THE BC IS TRYING TO ACCOMPLISH BUT THE WAY BY WHICH THEY ARE GOING ABOUT IT IS NOT IN THE BEST INTEREST OF EVERYONE INVOLVED.THEY SHOULD IMPLEMENT A TIME WHEN THESE SONGS CAN BE PLAYED(12MIDNIGHT-5AM OR ....)
WITH THE RADIO DJ MAKING TIMELY MENTION THAT THESE SONGS ARE RATED AND LISTENER HAS TO BE 18 OR OLDER.(DONT KNOW IF THIS WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE..BUT AT LEAST PARENTS ARE AWARE THAT IT IS TIME FOR THE TV OR RADIO TO BE CUT OFF OR THE KIDS SHOULD BE ASLEEP BY THEN).
THIS IS WHAT HAPPEN AS A RESULT OF PEOPLE NOT BEING RESPONSIBLE.PARENTS HAVE TO BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR KIDS PROPER UPBRINGING AS WELL AS THE ENTERTAINERS COULD CHOOSE TO SUBSTITUTE CERTAIN WORDS.I GUESS THIS IS NOT BEING DONE SO THE GOVERNMENT THINK THEY NEED TO STEP IN BUT WHAT ARE THEY DOING ABOUT OTHER ISSUES THAT ARE MORE DAMAGING TO KIDS?I JUST THINK THERE IS SO MUCH MORE THAT CAN BE DONE AND IN A DIFFERENT WAY THAT WOULD HAVE CREATED THAT BALANCE WE NEED FOR EVERYONE TO BE AT LEAST BORDER-LINE SATISFIED.

All that's needed is a "radio friendly" version of whatever "slack or violent" song is done . As well as a specified time frame when these songs can be played if the "radio friendly" version is deemed inappropriate to be played during "prime time".

However I do believe that this ban was done with Danceall music in mind without first considering that all musical genres can contain some amount of "slackness and violence". However not to seemed biased the Broadcasting Commission is now forced to examine all other forms of music that will be played. Well lets see if they will be immediately banning Carnival from being displayed on national television. I can't remember seeing this much uproar about Carnival when it started although there is a Kiddies Carnival involved.

I agree that everyone has to take part in uplifting society; entertainers, parent's and even the government. But to outright ban all daggering songs is very extreme. The songs should be played at a certain time of night when children are supposedly asleep. The people should have a choice and variety of music. And where does this end? Tomorrow it's gonna be gun lyrics, the next day it's gonna be lyrics about weed smoking, etc....The entertainers need to get together and protest this attack on dancehall music. Why wasn't there a referendum between the JBC and the dancehall fraternity to discuss an alternative?

@Melyboo, I totally agree with u. The ban is a little drastic, but some ting had to be done. Mi luv Dancehall, but at the same time some of the tune dem gone too far. The artist dem need fi be more creative so dem tune can go international where dem can mek more money and that would help to better assist others. This ban need to be for all kind of music and not just Dancehall. The artist dem need fi mek them voice be heard in a more positive way..

Ah Joke Ting dis. The Jamaica Broadcasting Commission band the playing of theses "Daggering" songs from radio and TV. There is not deadline for that, they have not banned the production of the songs, now that type of ban would require a given date. SO WHAT"S THE BIG DEAL" Oh I suppose you all like to see our young girl's SKIN-OUT having full view sex in school with some big grey bread man, and they send it all over the internet and on every one blue tooth. This is the type of behaviour songs like daggering promote amoungst our youth. The youth that we don't care about judging by most of the comments above. May be its late but is is needed, the next generation of mothers are becoming whores before the even understand what sex is really all about. And all you lame ass men that can't work a real women are the predator of the young and innocent. More needs to be done if we are to safe a fraction of our next generation. I ship my boys out of here has soon has they are sixteen, i don't want no beat out young miss bringing my grand baby into the world. If taxi man nuh share har up throughout school den ah police ar bus driver. Jamaica you all should be ashamed of your self for falling this low in morals
Daggering songs are for the mature and sexie so yes there is a market for it but you need to be a certain age to hear it, buy it, and enjoy it. These songs have no business in the hears of our young and the band should go further to all public vehicle's that transport the public. Cause di bus man dem ha get a feel good ride from young girls who get natural aroused from the playing of these songs in the buses, oh shame full is this situation. An some of you want to defend it and talk bout march. MARCH GO WAH, FI WAH!!!!!!!. I go to Carnival and I have never seen a young child there, these people are all big people who are engaged in bump up and grin down. Carnival has roots to our Afrikan traditions, the f**kery that is taken place in our schools with these young girls and big man is a disgrace to Jamaican Society
SHAME ON YOU ALL THAT BROUGHT US TO THIS LEVEL.
Big Up to Burning Spear for winning the Grammy. You see who the rest of the world views has real Jamaican talent

Posted by Protina | February 12, 2009 3:09 PM

I 101% agree with toni and W.Diesel.

Create a time frame for these songs

For real BC u think that this ban is going to do something great i am waiting to see the outcome of this whole matter as lots more songs should be bann

I completely agree with the ban as I beleive these songs contribute to the moral decay happening in our society today. I remember back in the nineties these songs were never even bought to radio stations they were just played in the dancehall for mature audiences so its time to clean up the music. Some of these disc jocks on radio are really sound system selectors and now they're confused because they don't know what to play (shame). Consious music will definately get a good run once more along with quality dancehall music. Well done Brodcasting Commission.

More daggering... stop fight daggering n go fight buggering...

Y is there so much uproar abt Daggering when it was ordain from man's creation to reproduce, to multiply, which can only be achieved through sex... And since they've come up with their definition of daggering as being rough sex, does it matter what kind of sex gets a girl pregnant?..... Y can't sex be a topic of discussion in music, especially if it's not blatant? Daggering nuh sound vulgar...

And just in case u no know, Daggering, whether u like it or not is a dance, just like no linga, sweep, willy bounce, etc.

There's nothing wrong with monitoring what's played on the airwaves but this seem more like an attack on a culture n on our freedom of speech, freedom of expression. So weh dem a seh, daggering is now an indecent word, since it's no longer radio, or electronic media friendly? They construed the word to effect their desired actions...

Bump n Grind(R. Kelly) still a play pon radio, I kissed a girl (Katie Perry), dollar whine, saltfish (Sparrow), candy shop (50 Cent), trading places (Usher) to name a few....How bout Tv programming, look how much movies and cartoons come on with negative story lines n lots of bleeps like the simpsons n so on, dem nah pull dem deh to? How bout carnival road march weh get more than prime time segment pon wi TV. One whole day filled wid people scantily attired, gyrating up n down our busy streets, with some of the lewdest lyrics blasting through enormous speakers. Who cared if kids were watching n listening then? Ohh... b4 I forget, wasn't there a kiddies carnival as well... tell u bout this society.... and at the same time, didn't we av a noise abatement act then, weren't they disturbing anybody, did pedestrians mind abt the roads which were rendered closed because of this?...

The problem with this society just not rest with the broadcasting commission's decision but with all of us n our actions. Mind you... some of these songs are very sexual r sexually graphic but they aren't played on radio in the raw version but now not even what as been editing is fit 4 airplay. The time period for banning these songs begs a lot of questions also, the commission sat down on thursday n banned all these songs friday morning (immediate effect), doesn't that smell like some form of dictatorship, communism? If this kind of action is allowed to prevail, the precedence set may cause us a lot of harm. Imagine 2maro the government says with immediate effect no one should listen dancehall music or place us all under house arrest, what will u do, where will ur voice be? Where is all this leading?

The most daring aspect of this all is that the commission within itself is telling all these radio n Tv people that they can't do there jobs or their just not capable of running their businesses...

The Broadcasting commission is just another hypocritical, self righteous, self-centered board, filled with a bag a boasty slaves.....

Let me ask all Jamaicans this n by large the world... WHEN DID WE START DEPENDING ON THE RADIO AND TELEVISION TO RAISE AND MONITOR OUR KIDS? Y HAVE WE DELEGATED OUR PARENTAL RESPONSIBILITIES?

To the broadcasting commission... since there's not going to be any daggering on the air, I assume u're going to monitor limewire, Ares, Utorrent, youtube n all these sites as well.. better yet, I guess u're all going to monitor the kids' Ipods n Iphones too r whatever gadgets they av? How r u going to stop them from listening it, from putting their fingers on it?

Radio is not the problem, television does more harm, especially cable... by the way who a monitor MTV, Showtime n dem cable station deh.. u tink true di movie say rated R of MA dem nah go watch it? Kids are more often times curiosity driven, they'll go in search of all the dangers out...

The commission n everybody else with their self righteous authority stop go round corners n deal with things straight up... one rule fi everybody.. Parents tidy unnu own house, set unnu own standards... get involved n take control in directing ur kids lives.

DAGGERING..... NEVER POSTPONE !!!

@Ban Dem... Your talking about these song that they should be bannned because they are utter SLACKNESS? LOOK AT THE WAY U EXPRESS URSELF WHEN U TRIED MAKING UR POINT? wasn't it nasty and lewd? Think about if outaroad was to put in place a no trash talking policy, where people who can't complete a sentence without curse words couldn't comment? You would sure have been banned, u see it all goes back to people expressing themselves differently to get points across!

@Ahme1dis... Oh boy I was wanting on the "JAMAICAN U SHOULD BE A SHAMED' card. I just knew someone would take it there,u said that u have been to Carnival, have u not seen the ADULT content broadcast on TV in the day time? (and before u answer remember everybody on this site has access to one) Where was the uproar about the morality of the society and the damaging of our youths then? Don't you know they have kiddies Carnival where the children are dress in almost the same custumes and dance to the same music? Where was the uproar that this can't be, they are too young for such things?.... There was none why? Oh I get it it's because most who take part in this are the 'UPTOWNIES' RIGHT? Do you people see the double standard here? The ban was not soley created to curve what the kids are listening to, it was created because most 'HIGH UP' thought it was lewd and offencive( I am not asking i am telling you this) They were the ones crying for something to be done about Ramping Shop and other songs like this but at the same time they get down and dirty at songs like 'TURN IT AROUND AND PUSH IT BACK IN' What u think the singer was talking about? I know it's not a damn Pipe! Ur talking about taking ur boys and taking them away from JAMAICA because u don't want no as u put it 'whores' bringing forth ur grandchildren lol, I hope ur not in the U.S.A because of the media over there most girls either wants to be a porn stars , or be a 'Model' what is the reason for that MISSY? They don't listen to 'daggering songs" and they still have whorish tendancies, No body is saying that these songs are the best, God knowns I listen and sometimes blush at how lewd they are, but at the end of the day, there is an audience for it, so it should be given to who want it, The ban was harsh, they could have placed the songs to be played at night and with that give out an advisory when they are about to be played..... It doesn't matter what u do or what u say, kids are going to hear, see and read about Sex, banning these songs won't change that... People need to stop living in cave days and open up to ur kids about sex, tell the truth,sit and talk and they will listen. U and not the MEDIA, OR THE DJS are responiable for raising your kids properly. Good morals start at HOME FIRST! Not saying march, but if they feel strongly enough about it, they should, it's ALL of our country and we all have voices!

@Ahme1dis

So it's fine to broadcast Carnival on National Television as it's fit for our children..ahem..sorry our future leaders to view "all big people who are engaged in bump up and grin down" as it "as roots to our Afrikan traditions". Interesting point of view Ahme1dis.

If we are going to protect our princes and princess then lets do it in a holistic and fair fashion. I can appreciate what the JBC is trying to do. I say better late than never but it is how you go about effecting change that determines how successful it is.

Posted by Stormin' Norman | February 12, 2009 5:40 PM

Many of the points brought across reflects the present decline in the fabric of Jamaican society. We sit back and ask ourselves why our children utter certain words or phrases? What is happening to our young upcoming adults?

The sad fact is that parents are the main factor behind this social decay. Although I grew up around dancehall music in rural Jamaica, I was still able to discern what was right to listen to or repeat, BASED ON MY PARENTS DIRECTIVES. I must say that we have only ourselves to blame.

Songs were just as vulgar in the early days of dancehall as they are now, but still we were raised by different standards and on air DJ's were more selective in terms of what was played on the radio.

We have now sadly gotten to the stage were our children are raised by the streets and the media so steps are now being put in place to control what out children listen to, in order to point them in the right direction. This however, is just putting a cup of fresh water in the ocean to make it less salty.
There is a need for better control on what can be played on the airwaves, but at the end of the day, it all comes down to how you raise your children. By all means clean up the airwaves ... but while we are at it, let's clean up our homes as well.

frank james .. mi nuh miss nuh point... this is my view point, how I see it from my angle... read thru mi post dem n si if u nuh find the same markers as weh u a share.....

As a people we caan afford fi mek others responsible fi a raise wi kids... Bob Marley dem days way different from now but I do agree that the same principles should always govern life but u av to take into consideration all the adversities n challenges the younger ones n twos face nowadays. If Peter dem did deh ya dem language would've been just as aggressive but probably not as raw or tasteful as how di artist dem a deal wid it now.

The main objective of society n babylon on a whole ever since we came in tandem with the western world n philosophy is to destroy our moral fabric and our family base and structure. The paradigm shift as been happening or has taken shape 4 awhile now in the form of immoralities, negative lifestyle n livity. Too much sodomy n frivolity. We became our own worse enemies when we started to govern ourselves, we have been doing a far worse job than our masters were... but bouy aren't they glad...

Sometime u av to deal wid di ting raw n straightforward fi get u point across. If yu seh daggering, no boy caan tink seh a 2 man ting r a 2 gal ting, di picture painted clear, man n woman ting. The persons weh suppose to a monitor wi media fi a do so impartially n we at the same time fi a cover wi pickney dem ears n eyes...

Laaawd God plz help them ppl yah.... out a road, as usual i would like to commend u for keeping me up-to-date on entertainment... now for my veiw. Jamaica, there is absolutely ntn wrong with daggering songs... Music is all about expression and if the artists express themselves in this way, it shouldn't pose a prob. wat ever happen to FREEDOM OF SPEACH?, is that a lie??? What the Jamaica Broadcasting Commission should have done was implement better beeping/bleeping on the radio stations... cause i must honestly say sometimes the song are nt properly edited and we hear words that are nt suited for children... Out a Road... i am a young psychologist n i believe that children learn in stages and therefore should not be expose to certain things b4 time... but this BAN is nt to protect our children, its a blockage in the "mind-set" of older ppl.... they jus dnt wnt to hear it... they prefer older kind of music and even then, from wayyyyyyyy back, had strong adult content. thank you Out A Road for allowing me the "FREEDOM OF EXPRESSING" me self.

i personally don't think this is so much of a big problem in stopping the airing of this songs on tv and radio shows,
d'angel should know that this is an opportunity to make more money out of this issue,
he banned the songs from radio n tv , but he can't stop anyone from playing the songs in there own private home , he can't stop the selectors from playing the songs in a dance,
if anyone has to loose in this matter, it wud be us the fans, cus now we wud have to pay more for it,
so i guess the entertainers should continue making their songs and videos and sell them on dvds, we dont need national tv, cus we got dvd players at home and also in the car,
d'angel, make money of it instead of trying to fight it, beat the system, dn't let the system beat you
he never said u guys can't write those songs , he simply stop the national media from promoting them.
imagine howmuch money u cud making on a real good unedited daggering video on dvd that no one has seen or herd on tv or radio.

From the Artist perspective they have a point. from the public perspective they have a point. From the BC perspective they have a point. Can we find a common groud that is the issue. Yes some of us dont want to hear the daggering songs, but what happen to the folks that wants to hear it..shouldnt we be fair to them also. I agree some of those lyrris needs to be clean up, so please Artist clean up some of the lyrics. Like most said, maybe the daggering tunes can be played at nights when kids/none daggering listeners ah sleep or gone a church. The BC could have done the thing gradually and give folks a chance to clean up. Also, what is good for the goose should be good for the gander because even some Slow songs have alot of se*ual content "let me lick up and down, till u say stop..cause tonight baby i want to get freaky with you". If you ban one you should Ban all.

To all you I-Pod/MP3 owners.. imagine you on your way to work (or similar) and the following songs start blasting in yuh ear;

Song 1: Queen Ifrica- Black People
.."My people what is wrong with us, are we gonna just give in and let them conquer us, look around the signs are everywhere, New Orleans to the Motherland, we will have to save our nation, stand strong"

Song 2: Movado- Force it up (tink ah so it name)
.."She say woi, yuh nuh dun yet, hours gawn an yuh nuh cum yet, fiah, mi pus*y pon fiah, force it up hard in har, mek she feel di long cord in har"

Fi sure song 1 will have me powering to work like i'm on a mission fi save the whole damn black race!! Song 2 will jus mek mi feel horny- straight! Seriously people.. music is a BIG influence in our daily life! If I had a child & dem cum home ah sing "b*ddy b*ddy b*ddy b*ddy inah yuh pum pum" I wud box every word straight outa him mout!
In the absence of education, strong role models, family structure & in most people case a dyam DADDY.. impressionable kids/teenagers even big people look up to musicians as ROLE MODELS. They see big things happening for them and feel that following their footsteps is the path to success. I know we jamaicans full ah vibes & love a hype. I don't suggest we loose that, jus 'low di daggering ting til after hours when pickney gawn a dem bed, or make it radio friendly.
We have to build a better j.a.. our children are the future!
