Ah bwoy, the LGBT and dancehall issue has been making the rounds in the media all this week especially with the Bounty Killer and Beenie Man division over the gays response to dancehall and vice versa.
Well I want to introduce you guys to a gay Caribbean artist who wants to show the more loving side of his lifestyle. The soft-spoken Nhojj of Guyana chronicles his preparation for the “Out & Proud” Brooklyn Museum First Saturday concert. We see him rehearsing with some music stalwarts including John F. Adams who played keyboard forh Keith Sweat and John Legends drummer Swiss Chris.
Nhojj gives an alternative view of gay lifestyle focusing on values that we all hold dear:
“Even though it (the subject of his song He & Him) is a male and male relationship the underlying things like love and commitment, you know, those are still very mportant to the homosexual relationship just like it is to any other type of relationship.”
Nhojj’s take on the view that being gay is morally wrong:
“Grew up in church my dads a minister must have heard God created Adam and Eve not Adam and Steve and I don’t agree with that. I think the only creative force in our world is God. So anything that’s here that was created comes from God. so I wanted to kinda speak to that in a song just to offer some kind of affirmation, some kind of empowerment”
