Yo! Mi nuh like how dem a diss diss up mi artist yuh know?!!
Africa as a whole is notoriously known for their love of Reggae music but for some strange reason, this past Saturday when reggae sensation Luciano performed at the 2011 CARNIRIV in Nigeria, he did not receive the love that is usually expected.
Instead of love and praises, Luciano was pelted with empty water bottles. Some say that they were not comfortable with his kind of music.. but what does that mean? Luciano is known for his kindred spirit and righteous music. He was very shocked by the hostile attitude and questioned,
"What is happening? You don't want me? I was told that CARNIRIV is an event to showcase African Culture and that is why I'm here for you... I am a messenger of God; don't you want the message? I was in Ethiopia, they received me. I was in Gambia, they received me. Why won't you receive your brother?"
But even with his speech, those who did not appreciate his performance continued to bombard the stage with objects.
I hope that moments like this will never discourage THE MESSENJAH from continuing on his path. Some people are just disgusting and disrespectful.
