Greetings readers,

As we all know, Rastafari is a cultural, spiritual and political movement with many observers world wide. As a spiritual practice, Rastafarians and the Global Rastafari Community deserve the same respect given to other religions and spiritual practices. No entertainer or public figure alike can go on a public platform and intentionally disrespect a religious group or organization without accountability or consequences. For those reasons this petition exists.

Recently Owen Moncrieffe a world renowned Jamaican reggae artist who goes by the name “Fantan Mojah” released a music video to a song titled “Fire King”. While the music video depicts black women half naked and in various sexually suggestive positions, it is the careless and slack behavior by Mr. Moncrieffe that caught the eyes of many fans and particularly those of the Rastafari Faith. 

As an international artist using the image and likeness of a Bobo Shanti Rastafari, Fantan’s behavior in the recent raunchy and disgraceful music video shed negative light on Rastafari and grossly undermines the powerful, political and spiritual objectives of the Rastafari Community at large. While Fantan is beloved and respected for his talents and contributions to reggae music over the years, the embarrassment that the “Fire King” music video has brought to the Rastafari community requires an immediate public apology to the Rastafari Indigenous Community for one very crucial reason. It is that the images portrayed in “Fire King” by Fantan do not align nor reflect Rastafari cultural, moral and ethical values.

Any person(s) intentionally representing Rastafari on an international platform have a moral obligation to uphold Rastafari standards and cultural values. Seeing that Mr. Mojah failed to do so requires an immediate apology.
