Jamaican dancehall legend Sizzla burns plaques from DJ Khaled, because his name was printed too small!
Sizzla, who’s born name is Miguel Orlando Collins, is a reggae musician who has done some major work on some projects for DJ Khaled and Epic Records. Major enough to feel as though the size of his name printed on the plaques he received for that work should be larger!
Sizzla and several of his friends were so upset with the size of his name on the plaques for albums he did with DJ Khaled that he burned them. Calling the small print disrespectful towards Jamaica as a whole.
Khaled’s sons Asahd and Aalam’s photos were spared from the fire, as Sizzla says babies are “innocent” and he still refers to the boys as his godchildren.
Sizzla appears on the very first track of both Khaled’s Grateful and Father Of Asahd albums and is also featured on this year’s instant success GOD DID.
Sizzla Kalonji has released over 45 solo albums and over fifteen combination albums, crossing different genres of Reggae. He has started his own record company, Kalonji Records, which in a joint venture with Damon Dash Music Group and Koch Records, and released the album, The Overstanding, in November of 2006.
This was his third album released through Kalonji Records; as well as Black History and Life.
Sizzla, along with reggae recording artists such as Capleton, Norris Man, Turbulence, Buju Banton, and Anthony B, are credited with leading a movement toward a re-embracement of Rastafarian values in contemporary reggae music by recording material which is concerned primarily with spirituality and social consciousness, explores common themes, such as Babylon’s corrupting influence, the disenfranchisement of ghetto youth, oppression of the black nation and Sizzla’s abiding faith in Jah and resistance against perceived agents of oppression.
Epic Records nor DJ Khaled have publicly addressed the scrutiny, although we’re sure DJ Khaled will do what he needs to do to make things right with his brother Sizzla when he returns from his top-secret meeting in the middle of the Red Sea in Jeddah Saudi Arabia!
