kick in she back door – guyana revels in sexual violence

kick in she back door - guyana endorses sexual violence

i’ve spoken about this before but this song seems to be getting more and more popular in guyana. no surprise there in a country with 1039 reported cases of child abuse in 2012. thousands of cases of domestic violence, rape and brutality against women.

the guyana govt successfully prosecuted one of 97 men charged with rape in 2011.

Below is a partial transcription of the lyrics:
[woman screaming]
[man mocking woman’s voice “murder murder, ah kill he gine kill me”]

If she front door lock and you can’t get in
And she bathroom window lock
And you can’t get in
And she bedroom window lock
And you can’t get in
And she kitchen window lock
And you can’t get in

What to do?

Kick in she back door
Kick in she back door
What ah mean?
Kick um in

And she bawling murder
[more screaming]

I don’t really know bout you
But I know just what to do
When a woman batten down she house
Make up she mind to keep you out
You push your key to find it jam
And it in {something} in you hand

So the solution to get inside
Cause she lock down she house so tight
Whether rain or shine
Morning, noon or night
Is the only way to win this fight

Chorus

[more screaming: “Call the police, come of mi yard, you too damn wicked”]

Women does mek things real hard
Especially when they get mad
No matter how hard you try
No easy way to slip inside
So the solution to get inside
Cause she lock down she house so tight
Whether rain or sun
Morning, noon or night
Is the only way to win this fight.

Onyan & Burning Flames actually won the 2012 Antiguan Road March with this song

  1. This is similar to many of the misogynistic dancehall “songs” in Jamaica. Only ONE person was successfully prosecuted for rape in 2011? Incredible. And what do the women think of it – do they laugh and dance and sing along?

    1. @ Emma
      yes one person was convicted in 2011
      i can’ speak for women but some do sing along and at least one of the promoters of this show is a woman as well

      1. That is something that always worries me in Jamaica. Quite a number of women seem to actually enjoy songs that encourage harm against them. Their self-esteem must be extremely low, I guess?

  2. more than likely. among other things
