Tommy Lee Sparta is calling for peace as the murder rate spikes in his hometown Montego Bay.
The Mobay deejay used a part of his performance at last weekend’s Reggae Sumfest to call for peace in the city as violence and murder reached an all-time high. Roughly 130 people have been murdered in Montego Bay since the start of 2017, prompting political leaders and law enforcement to bond together to come up with solutions.
“Big up everybody,” Tommy Lee said on stage. “One love. Big up every youth inna MoBay. Wi seh one MoBay. Have respect for each other. Ease off a di heap of killing and the bag of violence, yuh zimi, big woman thing. One MoBay, one Jamaica, one world, peace out.”
Tommy Lee Sparta performed a well received set at Reggae Sumfest 2017 despite being cut short due to time constraints. Watch video footage from his performance below.
