Tommy Lee Sparta concert set for February 23

Tommy Lee Sparta will be appear in concert on Sunday
Tommy Lee Sparta will be appear in concert on Sunday

Those who thought that a concert featuring controversial dancehall artiste, Tommy Lee Sparta, is off the books must think again.

The show was originally set for Sunday, February 16, in Portsmouth but Sparta was a no show.

However, main organizer of the event, Cabral Douglas, vowed that he will be performing on Sunday February 23 instead.

Douglas told DNO on Monday that Sparta had difficulties getting flights into Dominica after he was held in Jamaica on charges of taking part in a lottery scam.

“Yes the concert was postponed to next week Sunday,” He said, “Because he got out of custody very late.”

Douglas stated that he had the artiste’s flight changed three times but this despite all the effort he still could not make it in time for the concert.

According to him, the artiste has already apologized to Dominicans for not appearing and will hopefully be here on February 23rd.

He said tickets for last Sunday are valid and holders of tickets who cannot make it on the 23rd can get a refund this week.

Douglas described the postponement as “disappointing for patrons, myself included.”

The concert had sparked opposition from religious groups on the island who said Sparta’s music promotes violence and had called for a boycott.

A protest was held to drive home the groups’ discontent on the matter.

In light of the new concert date, Chairperson of the Northern Pastors Fellowship Pastorm Joseph Benjamin, said that a meeting is planned to discuss the organization’s next move.

“Well again we are standing firm against the concert and we are continuing to stand against the concert … we as pastors are to meet again together and discuss what will be our next step forward,” he said.

He accused the artiste of being in the “illuminati where one sells his soul to the devil for money and fame.”

He said such influence is not good for the young people of Dominica.

“We rejoice to the fact that God does answer prayer, and that God is working on our behalf and he will finish what he has started,” he said.

Sparta, whose real name is Leroy “Junior” Russell, has described his musical style as “Gothic Dancehall.”

      You have a problem. This obviously includes your mind. You call him a good person? A man whose name means the evil one and who sings those type of songs? What does it take for you to observe that? Who is so stupid so as to invite him to D/ca and welcome him to perform among them?

    Tommy will come and perform then go about his business and Dominica will be the same. Tommy cannot turn Dominica into no devil country. The devil is all around us everyday. If you are a real christian you would know that.

      half of then is the devil with their fear mongering. They need to go pick up them bible and pray for their own inequities and stop judging the man. If you really think he will turn our youth evil and demons and devils will plague dominica now and we are doomed then Really, Poor Dominica and no wonder we cant’ get anywhere in terms of development. If this is the kind of dumbfounded backward fearful mentality they teaching all you in church or wherever you lean it and in turn teach to your children. Then Really, Poor Dominica. Not because of Tommy, but because of the people who live here and influence us to think and speak and do ignorance without clear unbiased thinking. Seems like you all have no faith in yourselves and in the God you all praise. Like this man has power over you. The man not about them sceen.

    We’re really in the closing days of time. Man can’t even determine good from bad anymore they still want barabas they still reject Jesus Christ. I want you to know this that no stone will be left unturned, birds of a feather all fluck together there’s an evil motive in your head which you want to accomplish come what may you wonna give rise to satanism here but God forbid, The gates of hell shall not prevail.

    February 17, 2014

    But what is really wrong with cabral? You yet to realize that God just isn’t in this choice that you’ve made. How hard can your head be, how evil can your mind itself be, lkisten to God, listen to the voice of the people, we’ve got enough happening here already. Do you want God to send his judgement and wrath on this land before you realise. The way i see it is not that you don’t know that you should not invite such an artist as this to Dominica, but just that you just wonna add more salt to injuries and more burden on the poor donkies back if you don’t refrain from it you’ll surely pay for this your evil sins and for your evil compliances.

  18. Simply the Truth
    February 17, 2014

    Why this man? Why invite him to Dominica, knowing his reputation? You organizers of this concert, I feel sorry for you. You are aware that this man is a satanic follower and in view of the words of his songs.
    You have heard he was arrested for an illegal activity and you still welcome him? Shame on you! You are selling your souls to the devil including your country and other nationals.
    Where he goes the devil follows since he is a satanic worshipper.
    You who have children of your own care not for the youths of Dominica and the bad effect this man will have on them. You are others who have condemned yourselves. You will pay for this.
    Lord, please hear the cry and prayers of Dominicans who oppose this man coming to Dominica and singing at the concert. Please drive your enemies far from Dominica; do not let them in.
    Rebuke and punish those who should know better as Christians and who allow him to travel to Dominica to perform for the almighty dollars. You do know, Lord, the love of money is the root of all evil.
    Lord, you know the organizers only care about their pockets; not fellow Dominicans while caring not who they bring into your Christian country. We beg of you, through Your Most Precious Blood to prevent this from occurring. Thank you Lord! All praise, glory and honor be to You! Amen!

      Are you not a baptized Christian who has been attending church? You have badly swayed from the truth. You are certainly condemning yourself. He is your savior of the earth who is worthy of nothing.

    Ala sor let take our neighhood watch to a next level. Lets seat with our youngstars to reason out. Even if we do supports his lyrics and mannerism Lets not blame hime for what is already existing. My friends home and abroad would you believe that we would ever think that all the evill that is taking place in portsmouth we should sppend time scapegoating another? We need come clean with each other. put down the weapon of mass distruction”the tongue” and embrace each family member So they may see the good that we do and give the father praise

    • opinionated
      February 17, 2014

      Home,
      No one is blaming the artiste for the violence that is already taking place in Portsmouth. The argument is that bringing in such an artiste whose music unleashes demonic activities should not be allowed into our country.

      What we often fail to realise is that we fight against principalities and powers, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

      An artiste of this nature, when he sings the songs that he has so gladly devoted to the devil, is in fact releasing negative energies into the atmosphere. What we may find as a result is that people who attend such a concert may come under demonic influence and may not even realise it; that the venue (Portsmouth and by extension Dominica) becomes becomes a breeding ground for demonic devices, since they are welcomed here.
      Do you think that is the type of Dominica we would like to live in? I doubt.

      so before you make any unfounded argument, give serious thought to the implications

      • Dummynicans again
        February 18, 2014

        ARE YOU KIDDING ME???? Tommy Lee would unleash demonic activities in Dominica? REALLY? YOU People deserve to stay poor. Cus if this is the crap you believe and think, Jah know what you all would do if you had the money and power to really do things. Funny how religion has brain washed us here to a point where we live in complete fear. To think this jamaican artist will have such influence and power over our lives here in Dominica. We are truely lost. I hope this isnt a young person who speaking such old crap.

        To: Dummynicans again

        Your anme says a whole lot about you and you have confirm just that in your writing. If you were spiritual minded you would realize the power of the spoken words. The devil knows music and he understands the power of such. You have placed yourself (and many like you) in a “dummy can” this mean you lack wisdom and understand. The word of God says “My people perish for lack of Knowledge”. And you “Dummynicans again” is and will persih if you don’t come out of your state of dumbness

        Really Dominicans????That you all are so foolish to believe someone can release the devil to take over the country? I thought Dominica was a Christian country, stop being so ignorant. God is all powerful, some little Jamaican artiste cannot take over God’s country.

    He won’t stop blessing you
    What he’ll do is keep testing you
    And a begger is no less than you
    Cause’ one day it could be you..
    So get your folks together for some church y’all
    Some good music and prayer in service won’t hurt y’all
    Even if you don’t believe in the preacher
    It’s bound to be a few things she could teach you.

    We’ve come this far by faith
    Pick up your pace and don’t you be late
    I’m hear to tell ya about the good news
    Somethin’ about the path that we choose y’all
    Wisdom has built this house now
    Integrity will bring your pride out
    If you know how to pray the situation out
