Reggae artiste I Wayne is asking the local music industry to promote more music with positive content in order to reduce the rate at which society is drifting into a path of immorality.
According to the reggae artiste, known to be an advocate against prostitution, violence and other ills in society, though reggae music is regaining popularity, smut is still overpromoted in the media.
When accused of using music to influence negativity, many artistes are known to use the popular excuse that music is art imitating life and is not a causal factor in the prevalence of crime, violence and immorality.
However, I Wayne believes artistes who use that excuse to defend their production of music with lewd content are hypocritical.
According to I Wayne, the same artistes who argue that songs with violent content do not influence society, will also tell you that positive music will influence positive behaviour whenever that excuse suits the promotion of a song with positive content.
I Wayne says if positive music can influence positive behaviour, then negative music is just as influential.
