Following the move by Isaiah Laing and his partner Heavy D to ban recording artistes Sizzla Kalonji and D'Angel from Sting because of distasteful displays onstage at Sting 30, co-promoter of the equally iconic festival, Reggae Sumfest, Robert Russell, says he hopes up-and-coming artistes will learn from the response of the promoters.

Russell says it is unfortunate when recording artistes act irresponsibly when they are in the possession of a microphone, despite being briefed on what is expected of them prior to giving them the platform to provide entertainment.

"It's disappointing when you expect the artistes to work to contribute to the better good of the event and they don't," Russell told The Sunday Gleaner.
