After smear campaign by Israel lobby, Celebrities call Spotify not to delete Lowkey music

London (QNN)- Musicians and celebrities have expressed their support to the rapper and Palestine solidarity campaigner, Lowkey.

The British pro-Israel lobby group We Believe in Israel demanded last week that streaming giant Spotify delete his music.

This includes his [2010 track] Long Live Palestine – Part 2.

However, numerous artists have signed an open letter defending him.

Among the signatories are rapper Wretch 32 and Ghetts, model Anwar Hadid, actor Michael Malarkey and Pink Floyd co-founder Roger Waters.

The signatories are calling “on Spotify and all other platforms not to buckle to pressure groups..”

“..who would rather see his music removed than grapple with the issues he highlights.”

The letter describes Lowkey as “the target of a coordinated smear campaign to demonize, defame and deplatform him.”

“Lowkey’s music has inspired and energized millions around the world.”

The letter added that his music has “ignited an interest in many about the issues he raises in his work.”

“As a relentless advocate for Palestinian human rights, he is a target for many who would rather his message not be heard.”

News broke last week of the latest Israel lobby campaign against Lowkey.

However, people on social media have expressed an outpouring of support for the rapper.
