Jamaica Takes the Sizzle Out of Dancehall; Bans Offensive Music

Freedom of speech takes a back seat as the island of Jamaica has gone the censorship route by banning all music that "glorifies" violence and/or sexual activity in a controversial decision instituted this week.

To take things a step further Jamaican DJs cannot play censored/clean versions of the songs at this point.

The ban is inclusive of all TV, radio, and Dancehall establishments.

How Will the Ban Affect Indie Planet's Coverage of Reggae?????
IPTV will continue to cover reggae music and dancehall. We will continue to play videos produced prior to this ruling. We will use our discretion to determine what is "offensive".

Keep it locked for our upcoming episodes which will feature more dancehall in response to this ruling.
