Tommy Lee Sparta has called for peace and unity in his hometown of Montego Bay.
The “Not A Badness” deejay used his recent Reggae Sumfest closing performance to plead with fans to end the current wave of crime and violence which has crippled the city of Montego Bay in recent years.
Despite the fact that his performance had to be cut short due to time constraints, the deejay used his 8 minute set wisely, encouraging fans to unite with each other and stop the senseless killings.
“Big up everybody. One love. Big up every youth inna MoBay. Wi seh one MoBay. Have respect for each other. Ease off a di heap of killing and the bag of violence, yuh zimi, big woman thing. One MoBay, one Jamaica, one world, peace out,” said the Sparta deejay.
The call comes after a disturbing rise in the murder figures, with St James already recording over 130 murders since the start of the year, setting it on pace to be one of the bloodiest years in its history.
