Below is a Letter that was sent to OutAroad.com by one of our regular viewers Niki British.
What would become of Dancehall without the feud? My answer to that is boring, less stage shows would be held, dub plates would not be in demand, Reggae's best one night show on earth Sting would definitely lose its audience, the news paper and online magazines wouldn't have much juicy stories to publish.
I know there are many persons who will not agree with the ongoing feud, but on the other hand, the feud has kept dancehall giants Beenie Man and Bounty Killer careers alive for more than 14 years. However since of late the lyrical genius Vybz Kartel and Mavado have stripped Bounty Killer & Beenie Man of their rivalry titles when they clashed at Sting 2008. Since then Dancehall, followers have been shouting "Gaza Mi Seh" while others shouted "Gully Fi Life."
Dancehall went on a go slow in the earlier part of this year when the Broadcasting Commission announced that all songs with the word Daggering, edited or insight violence against another should be removed from the airwaves, TV and local Cable stations. However, a few months later dancehall was back on track courtesy of the Alliance and The Portmore Empire. Therefore, from my understanding the feud is necessary in the dancehall from once the artistes keep it lyrically.
P.S. Which of the two Gs yuh shouting Gaza or Gully?
I want to send a big shout out to Meleon, So What, Nelly, Toni and Tacious for always posting interesting comments
