The singer known for his light-hearted take on social issues and sub-cultures is among the early controversies associated with the annual Crop Over Festival. One women’s organisation has called for Sawyer to be blacklisted from any state-funded events over De Sugar Daddy, an account of a quid pro quo relationship between men and women.
