Sizzla Kalonji has destroyed the platinum disc sent to him by DJ Khaled.
The Jamaican star appears on DJ Khaled’s recent album ‘God Did’, sharing a space on the dancehall-leaning cut ‘TSKMN’ / ‘These Streets Know My Name’. The track is an all-star affair, featuring Jamaican gods such as Buju Banton, Bounty Killer, Capleton, and Sizzla himself.
One of the record’s most popular tracks, it’s powered by Jamaican artistry, and to celebrate this DJ Khaled’s team sent Sizzla a plaque to toast the album’s platinum success.
That said, the move doesn’t seem to have gone down well in Jamaica. Sizzla posted an image of the plaque on social media, and followers claimed they needed a magnifying glass to see the dancehall artist’s name.
Saying DJ Khaled has disrespected him, Sizzla then went on IG Live and smashed the disc to piece, tendering removing the images of children before wrapping the splintered remains up in plastic, and dumping it on a fire.
In a note, Sizzla writes: “Tru Rasta ….. run to Ja for an elevation and not even a picture of the artistes who gave you a platinum record? Respect Sizzla, respect Capleton,respect Buju, respect Bounty, stay woke Shane O stay woke Rygin kin…”
“Tony Matterhorn did talk say him nuh good long time. A years him a take from Jamaica culture and build himself without giving proper recognition.”
