Freaky dancehall singjay J Amsterdam says local DJs are refusing to play his music because they are afraid of the stigma.
According to the Wine Inna Mi Face singer, Jamaica's music industry is not prepared for his level of 'freakishness'.
"I think they don't want to play the song because they don't want to be associated with that kind of thing, and that's why so many people were going against it on Facebook," he said.
The singjay also said while he does not blame DJs for not playing his song in an attempt to protect their reputation, its blatant hypocrisy.
"If DJs played it, they would get 'fire bun' and honestly, I don't think they would want to risk their career," J Amsterdam said.
He also told THE STAR that he misjudged the level of backlash he would get for releasing the controversial single, and even made an attempt to retract his admission to having performed oral sex.
"I can't go anywhere right now, and I have been getting death threats. I have stayed in my house for three days without going outside. I have not done the things I said in the song, I was just trying to fulfil my dreams of having a lucrative career. When I did the song I thought the freaks would have supported me, but they have not," he said.
J Amsterdam also commented on Alkaline's 'anal licking' lyrics saying, "Alkaline is making it bad for me right now because people feel that he did the anal licking line because of me, Demarco and Ricky Carty. But what he did in his song with one line is worse than my entire song. This did me more harm than good because I have received no bookings, not even Tiana or D'Angel want to be associated with me. Persons have to be hypocrites to survive in this industry ... Jamaica is not ready for it, and even though I said oral sex in the song, I have never performed it," J Amsterdam added.
Probably sparked by the increase in the number of 'freaky' songs by Vybz Kartel, many artistes are now openly singing about a more risqué lifestyle.
While male artistes had previously openly sang about receiving oral sex, more female artistes are now also boasting about this in their lyrics.
Artiste CéCile received backlash after releasing her song, "Do It To Me Baby," several years ago, and artiste Lisa Hyper was also chastised after images of her were released on the Internet participating in oral sex.
Fast forward to 2013 and at least three female artistes have revisited the topic of oral sex, citing their love of either performing or receiving it.
However, there is far less resistance to those advocating the act. Instead, it seems they have received the stamp of approval from dancehall. The women believe this is an indication of a new dancehall paradigm.
Up-and-coming dancehall artiste Angelina performed her single Head Mistress at Sting 2012. The song, which blatantly explains her oral sex experiences, was well received by the audience.
Following the backlash, Demarco released a statement to THE STAR stating that the video was meant for mature audiences only.
"Amidst all the tattering (which is much ado about nothing), it is important to note that my video is intended for mature audiences only. This is explicitly stated at the beginning of the visuals, which contain nothing most 'mature' individuals have not seen or been exposed to in their lifetime. As a further precautionary measure, the video was never released via any of my official outlets (Twitter, Youtube, Facebook, Instagram, etc.), but unfortunately perpetuated to social media platforms by overzealous individuals," the release read.
Demarco added that it is the responsibility of parents and guardians to safeguard minors against such offerings through proper parenting and vigilance.
"The hypocrisy of our society is so paradoxical; accusing me of lechery, yet here's the real truth - only weeks earlier I was the good Samaritan saving a woman's from the clutches of death after she cracked her skull in a severe car accident outside my studio compound. myself and my team rushed her to hospital.
"Aside from a selected few, no one saw the need to highlight this. I also donated a sizeable contribution in back-to-school supplies to various inner-city children in Kenya and Jamaica, another deed treated with utmost inattention."
Making mention of the fact that he released a song titled It's Not Right, campaigning against various atrocities committed against children with little to no media attention, Demarco stated that there are more important issues affecting our nation that need attention.
"The focus that is being thrust upon this video should be given to matters such as the disenfranchised youths of this country, the rising rate of unemployment, lack of proper infrastructure for our children to learn, squatting, the crime epidemic, among other social issues." Who can also forget the Vybz Kartel photo and discussion surrounding the demand of oral sex being performed on men but not vice versa which has been readily accepted.
