Beenie Man Denies Agreeing To Scrap Anti-gay Lyrics
Reggae star BEENIE MAN has denied reports he signed an agreement vowing to stop using homophobic lyrics.
The artist was claimed to have added his name to the Reggae Compassionate Act, a new drive to "respect and uphold the rights of all individuals to live without violence due to their religion, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity or gender".
But the singer - real name Anthony Moses Davis - has refuted the claims, insisting while he disagrees with homophobic violence, he does not agree with the lifestyle.
He says, "We don't need it. We don't need to kill (them). We just need to tell the people the right (thing) because I not supporting a gay lifestyle because it's not wholesome to me.
"I do music. And (I never) signed it."
