In Uganda, where legislation is currently pending that would mandate execution for "aggravated homosexuality": Anti-gay "murder music" singer Beenie Man performed in Kampala over the weekend, Box Turtle Bulletin reports.
"The King of Dancehall stuck a sword of words into gay people through singing and talking. “In my family, we don’t have any gay person but if you’re gay, my brother that’s not my fault,” he said as he performed his song Mi Nah Wallah, in which he says he would like to cut the throats of all gay men. George Bush and Bin Laden were also at the receiving end of the Jamaican’s wrath calling on the audience to say “murderer” as he sang about the pair’s warfare."
The concert also featured a promotion by Toyota.
