Broadcasting Commission slaps daggering

By Yasmine Peru

Media watchdog group, the Broadcasting Commission, has made an effort to slap ‘daggering’ with what can perhaps be termed the ‘wickedest slam’.
In its most recent communiqué, the commission notes that it “has examined a number of songs popularly referred to as daggering songs” and found these recordings to be “explicitly sexual and violent” and contrary to sections of the Television and Sound Broadcasting Regulations and against certain tenets of the Children’s Code for Programming. As a result, the commission has decreed that radio, television and cable stations must not transmit any recording, live song or music video which promotes the act of daggering, makes any reference to or is suggestive of daggering.
The commission in its statement defines daggering as “a colloquial term used in dancehall culture as a reference to hardcore sex or what is popularly referred to as dry sex, or the activities of persons engaged in the public simulation of various sexual acts and positions”.
With this move, the Broadcasting Commission is hoping to thrust a dagger which will penetrate the very heart of ‘daggering’. But, will it? Quite likely not. The simple truth is that the only thing new about daggering is the term itself. Secondly, it is neither radio nor television which have popularised ‘daggering’, it is the streets — the nightly dances held in the streets and clubs, the sound systems which blast the music for all and sundry to dagger to and yes, the Internet. From Mr Vegas’ Daggering to new artiste Bragga’s hugely popular Dagger Dat (which gal ova deso a ask if a Bragga dat/Come ova yaso mek mi dagger dat) the Internet is replete with daggering songs and videos.
In fact, daggering is so popular that it has a website all for itself. Just check out daggering.com. “Welcome to Daggering.Com, the ultimate daggering videos site on the web. From crazy daggering scenes at Passa Passa, Bembe, Weddy Weddy and other popular outdoor events to homemade daggering videos, we have it!”
And they make good on their promise.

    the quickness. Select a buyer who offers a secure and trusted platform.
    This may sound obvious but when you sell a business
    it's more important to listen and ask questions than continually talk to try and 'sell' the business.
