Yes, but he's said this *before* and then *reneged* once he's back in Jamaica, according to Wikipedia and its links to Jamaican media. This is spin. BDO was right to cancel his planned performance here. He can't be trusted.

Beenie's management deny he wrote the apology..

Of course he should have been allowed to perform here! This event has been hijacked by a small minority that just happens to be very outspoken, and has its voice amplified by political correctness. The still let gangsta rappers tour, right? Mo' murder.

His apology makes sense. Musicians have offended different people from all walks of life for a long time. If these lyrics were written a long time ago as he says, then maybe he should be allowed to sing here without singing the offending songs
