Jahaziel gets behind campaign against online porn

Jahaziel has recorded a track in support of a campaign to block internet pornography.

The song, "Theft of my Innocence", has been written specially for the Safetynet campaign calling for internet service providers to implement opt-in filters that will allow parents to stop adult material coming into their homes.

In the song, Jahaziel explains how he was exposed to, and then became addicted to, pornography at just six years of age.

The song warns that young people may find themselves unable to break free from pornography.

“Young people need to see other young people who have made the decision to stay away from pornography,” said Jahaziel.

“This is my testimony, from six, through teens, and how I eventually found freedom from it.”

The MOBO award winning artist was invited to pen and produce a special track by Premier Christian Media, which is leading the Safetynet campaign in partnership with Safermedia.

Peter Kerridge of Safetynet, and CEO of Premier Christian Media, said: “The hip hop genre is a language most young people understand so the message is given added credibility and clarity.

"Jahaziel’s childhood introduction to pornography is vividly portrayed along with the trauma he experienced. It’s a strong and important message for Internet Service Providers to introduce a voluntary block on pornography – with an ‘opt-in’ for adult viewing.

"The Prime Minister might also like to take a few minutes out of his busy schedule to listen to an articulate, first-hand account of childhood exposure to pornography.”

    Why Lion Should Be Crowned King At The Oscars

    Lion is a beautifully told story about a five-year-old lost boy in India and his adoption. It's visually stunning and emotionally eviscerating. I believe not only that the academy should recognise Lion, but that you should see it too. I plan to avoid spoilers and will give away nothing that is not told to us in the film's trailer.
