T.O.K's controversial Batty Bwoy bashing tune. As mentioned in the 2001 roundup, technically the riddim is from 2000.
I find it interesting.... I remember when people used to complainabout slackness, saying that if dancehall artists released tunes likethis there would be no interest in reggae in an international level. Honestly, has TOK's Chi Chi Man made dancehall/reggae less or more popular internationally? Secondly, would the song have been such a hit if the lyrics would have been about love and unity amongst mankind?
Personally I would not play Chi Chi Man on the radio. Maybe the worldis already twisted and that's why these types of lyrics is popular,but since there is a risk that it's influences from songs like thisthe makes it twisted, I would not want to take the risk of contributingto it by playing this music.
However, it's a wicked tune, which make things complicated... Imagine me, a man that loves all people and doesn't have anythingagainst gays and lesbians, a family man and father of two, jumping up anddown in his kitchen, dancing to an undersized soundsystem blaringTOK's Chi Chi Man, shouting:
"Who a walk in a Chi Chi Man bar,
FIRE A GO BUN DEM, BUN DEM!"

Comment by: Date: 2006-08-25 Comment: Hmmm. Well let's really talk about this. What actual
reason does anyone have to hate GLBT people?
Especially when there are more important issues to
be putting our efforts to instead of oppressiong
eachother. For all of you people of color out there
reading this, answer me this. Do YOU like it when
white people call you racially derogitory names like
"nigger", "chink", "brown baby", "spic"? Do YOU like
being looked down upon as lesser than you are
because of the color of your skin? Do YOU like
being told that you are less of a human than white
people because clearly, you do not match their idea
of what perfection is? So what makes it ok for one
to condemn homosexuals for who they are, who
their born as? GLBT people are equally oppressed in
a different but still oppressive way as People Of
Color are. So instead of dividing the oppressed to
oppress eachother and let white, male, able bodied,
middle aged, hetero sexual males thrive off our
fighting, let's stop the homophobia and be more
concerned about more important issues... LIKE THE
