Broadcasting Commission’s ban can't stop dancehall, says DI

Dancehall deejay Danielle, aka DI, is not a happy camper. In fact, she is downright unhappy, but she says she is keeping her outlook positive. This after hearing the news that the Broadcasting Commission is on a mission to ban all songs that have bleeps from the airwaves.
Known for her provocative lyrics, sometimes bordering on the explicit, Danielle has always maintained that she does lyrics which move to the sensual beat of the dancehall. Actively promoting her career, she recently did a medley video with two of her most popular dancehall tunes. However, if things go the way they are looking, this video will have to be shelved, as the bleeps in the songs have now made it ineligible for television.
“Bwoy, this is such a setback,” she lamented. “We have spent a lot of time, money and effort into this video project and also on the production and promotion of the singles. No … it’s not as much as a million dollars, but it’s hundreds of thousands. And now all that money has gone down the drain.”
The singles, Pat Yuh Kitty and Beat It contain suggestive lyrics which are sexual in nature. However, with a “few bleeps here and there” the songs and the video could be played, Danielle feels.
While she does not “have a problem with the Broadcasting Commission cleaning up the airwaves” she feels that the regulatory body is being too harsh by blaming dancehall for all the ills of the society.
“Additionally, they could have given a grace period for everybody to fall in line, or even say that these songs with bleeps should only be played between 11:00 pm and 5:00 am, or something like that,” she said.
And what will be her course of action now? As an artiste, she needs to have her music and videos in the public domain.
“Well, I will turn more to the Internet and ensure that all the sites like youtube and imeem have my video, and I will be doing mixed tapes with my music. Dancehall blows up from underground onto the international scene, so I know that this ban can’t stop it from flourishing,” she declared.
