Fiyah fi bun pon di botty of Snoop Dogg! Many aren’t proud of his reincarnation into Snoop Lion and converting into the Rastafarian religion. Bunny Wailer (an original member of Bob Marley and The Wailers) and leaders of something called the Ethio-Africa Diaspora Union Millennium Council (aka Rastafari Millennium Council) feel that him becoming a rasta is a lie and is just for profit. They are not happy with the docu-film, Reincarnated, which shows Snoop’s immersion in the Rasta culture as he recorded his first reggae album in Jamaica last year.
Wailer claims Snoop has engaged in “outright fraudulent use of Rastafari Community’s personalities and symbolism” and has failed to meet “contractual, moral and verbal commitments.” With the Ethio-Africa Diaspora Union, Wailer wants Snoop to stop referring himself as Snoop Lion, “pay up financial and moral support” they claim he committed, and issue a public apology.
If Snoop doesn’t abide by these requests, they are planning to sue him.
