Jamaica’s Ban on ‘daggering songs’

The Broadcasting Commission has banned all radio, television and cable services from airing songs or videos which it deems explicitly sexual and violent.

According to the Commission, these songs are in violation of sections of the Television and Sound Broadcasting Regulations.

It also says there should be no transmission through radio, television or cable services, of any audio recording, song or music video, which employs editing techniques of ‘bleeping‘ or ‘beeping’ of its original lyrical content.

The Commission says it has examined a number of songs, popularly referred to as ‘daggering songs’. It says ‘daggering’ is a colloquial term or phrase used in the dancehall culture as a reference to hard core sex, or the activities of persons engaged in the public simulation of various sexual acts and positions. The country’s electronic media watch dog group says programme managers, station owners and operators must immediately stop airing any recording of these ‘daggering’ songs.

The Commission has been lobbying the Government for changes to be made to the law governing broadcasting and a report is to be tabled in Parliament soon.
