DESTINY SPARTA


Guzu Music recording artiste Destiny Sparta has become the first dancehall artiste to explicitly state that she performs oral sex in a song. Ce'Cile was perhaps the first female artiste to have given hints in a few of her songs that oral sex was practised by some female artistes. However, until now, a pro oral sex song was never released featuring a major artiste. The controversial song is called Real Bad Gyal, and also features Tommy Lee Sparta, Stylish, and Tabeta Sparta. According to Destiny, who decided to push the envelope, many dancehall artistes are hypocrites. "You have a lot of hypocrites in the music yu nuh? They are doing it and are not saying it, and projecting a fake image to the people. I am tired of that hypocrisy, so I decided to just say it. Plus, a little controversy helps too, because nobody has said that before on record," Destiny Sparta said. The artiste says she has received both good and negative comments from persons who have listened to the song. However, the good comments far outweigh the bad. She also revealed that the response is even more encouraging during live performances. "It's definitely the most outrageous part of the song. The part producers at UIM Records allowed me to be creative, and Tommy Lee was there when I was recording it as well," Destiny said. The outspoken dancehall artiste thinks her bold move will motivate other women to be more honest with their music. According to Destiny, while this is her hope, she knows men will continue to be more secretive about oral sex. Destiny Sparta is gearing up to release the single Nah Tek Him Back, produced by Anju Blacks. She is also looking forward to her performance at Club Famous on August 5, during the Gaza Spartan Concert, to be headlined by Tommy Lee Sparta. "People are going crazy about the song. Dem seh mi bad and dem want more. At the end of the day, women haffi please dem man, if dem don't, then somebody else will," she chuckled.
