    Ninja Man refuses to perform

    song that glorifies violence

    Ninja Man defies 'Borders' - JAMAICAOBSERVER.COM

    In a stunning retreat of his long-standing rude boy image, controversial dancehall artiste, Ninja Man refused Professor Carolyn Cooper's invitation to perform his defining 1990 hit song Border Clash.

    The deejay's refusal came during the closing ceremony of the Global Reggae Conference, held at the University of the West Indies Assembly Hall on Friday.

    It took quite a few years but I'm happy to see Ninja Man taking RESPONSIBILITY for the message being delivered in his music. I really hope that sparks other artists to get involved and do the same. It won't solve all the problems in the ghetto but at least, it will provide more positive messages to those in the struggle through dancehall.
