Vybz-Kartel-2012-1

Vybz Kartel and Elephant Man have trials postponed

Two of Dancehall’s most coveted entertainers will have to wait a while to have their days in court to answer serious charges they stand accused of.

One of the highly anticipated murder trials involving Dancehall superstar, Adidja ‘Vybz Kartel’ Palmer has been postponed until December 3 of this year.

Kartel was due to answer charges pertaining the July 2011 killing of St. Catherine businessman, Barrington ‘Bossie’ Burton on Monday. However, the matter was put off when the self-professed ‘Worl’ Boss’ appeared inside the Corporate Area Resident Magistrates Court in Kingston yesterday after one of his defense attorneys, Cristian Tavares-Finson revealed that prosecutors in the murder case indicated that they weren’t ready.

Kartel faces charges of murder, conspiracy to murder and illegal possession of a firearm in the Barrington ‘Bossie’ Burton and was granted JA$3 million bail in the matter earlier this year. However, the former Portmore Empire leader cannot post that bail as he remains in custody for murder and obstruction of justice related charges pertaining to the killing of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams in August 2011.

Vybz Kartel will stand trial alongside four other men on November 5 with regards to the murder case. Seven days later, ‘Di Teacha’ will return to court to begin his conspiracy trial in which he, Vanessa ‘Gaza Slim’ Saddler and Andre ‘Pim Pim’ Henry are accused of attempting to pervert the course of justice in the Williams case.

Meanwhile, fellow Dancehall superstar, Oneil ‘Elephant Man’ Bryan has been issued a new court date in his ongoing rape case as the prominent deejay is scheduled for a February 11, 2013 appearance.

Like Kartel, Elephant Man appeared inside the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court on Monday where he was due to answer to charges of rape and sexual assault stemming from an alleged incident this past January involving a 31-year-old woman at his St. Andrew home. However, the Pon Di River singer’s case was reportedly put off due to an outstanding forensic report, amongst other things.

Elephant Man will remain on JA$400,000 bail until the February date. The embattled deejay originally posted said bail in February.

Busy Signal and Shane Brown

Busy Signal’s manager speaks out on the deejay’s prison stay, future in music

With embattled Dancehall/Reggae superstar, Busy Signal just under two months away from regaining his freedom, the entertainer’s esteemed manager has illustrated a very thought-provoking picture of his client’s prison experience.

Busy Signal was slapped a six month sentence last week Friday for absconding bail in relation to a 2002 drug case in the American state of Minnesota. However, given that the Reggae Music Again singer had already served time in Jamaica and the United States in relation to the matter, presiding judge, Donovan W. Frank ruled that Busy Signal would be released on November 21 and will subsequently be given 45 days to leave the North American country.

But before Busy can one again return to his musical exploits, the internationally acclaimed singjay will be focused on regaining full health after a rigorous stay at the Sherbourne County Jail in Minnesota. In an interview with Irish and Chin Inc. radio outlet, Sound Chat Radio, Busy’s manager, Shane Brown painted a grim picture of his client’s life behind bars, revealing that the entertainer would only be fed fish once a week, would never see sunlight and has lost considerable weight and energy while in jail.

“Busy has lost quite a bit of weight…closer to 12-15 pounds. He’s very weak and he’s not eating right ‘cause Busy just prefer to hol’ it and eat some crackers and some juice fi all a week straight,” he said.

Elephant Man 2012

Elephant Man faces June court date in rape case

Internationally renowned Dancehall superstar, Elephant Man will have to wait a while longer before having an opportunity to answer to a rape charge.

The prominent deejay’s rape case was put off following a hearing inside the Corporate Area Resident Magistrates on Monday. As a result, the self-professed Energy God was assessed a June 28 court date where he will answer to charges of rape and grievous sexual assault.

The charges stem from an alleged incident at Elephant Man’s Hillcrest Avenue residence in St. Andrew this past January. Law enforcement officials relayed that a police report was filed by a woman claiming she was sexually assaulted at the artiste’s home.

Following an investigation by the Centre for the Investigation of Sexual Offences and Child Abuse (CISOCA) and a question-answer session in the presence of his lawyer, Elephant Man was slapped with rape and sexual assault charges.

Elephant Man has steadfastly denied the allegations, insisting that he would never put himself in such a position given his status as a role model and the responsibilities he bears in music.

Beenie Man out of STING 2011…unless Laing apologizes

Internationally-acclaimed Dancehall artiste, Moses Davis, more popularly known as Beenie Man will be a notable absentee from this year’s edition of the popular STING stage show.

With STING 2011 almost sure to miss fellow established deejay, Vybz Kartel, due to his current legal troubles, Beenie Man announced on Thursday that he would not participate in the stage show. STING 2011 will take place on December 26 at Jamworld in Portmore, St. Catherine.

In a press release, Beenie Man publicly chastised STING 2011’s main organizer, Isaiah Laing for remarks made about him whilst appearing on a local television show. The Let’s Go deejay intimated that he would not perform at the stage show unless received a thorough explanation regarding Laing’s comments.

“How (Isaiah) Laing fi go pon TV and mek dem speech de say we ah old artistes and caan do nothing fi him show. Him no respect the dancehall veterans who help to build the industry in no way. Every year, him attempt  fi disrespect we in some way, and mi not doing Sting this year unless Laing come explain to me what him mean by ‘old artiste’. If Bounty waan a clash, him haffi link me at some other show,” he said.

Additionally, Beenie Man revealed that long-time rival, Bounty Killer and fellow deejay, Elephant Man asked him to perform at a show their organizing for New Year’s Eve. However, the prominent Dancehall artiste claims that Bounty accused him of running from a possible lyrical clash at STING 2011; accusing the “War Lord” of sucking up to Laing.

“Killer and Ele come to me up at Suzie’s and say which part we ah go keep our show. Mi check it out and did a plan fi use Jamalco inna Clarendon and do the show on December 31st. And now mi hear Killer ah say mi a run from clash but mi fraida Killer, mi nah run, and mi will clash him at another show apart from Sting. Killer bow too much, look how easy him mek Laing bring him in and ah use him fi bring mi in,” Beenie Man said.

Despite his grouse with Laing, Beenie Man insisted that he still believes STING is a great showcase for younger artistes to announce themselves on a mainstream level. However, he believes that while they are promoting growth artistes on the come-up, they’re disrespecting veteran artistes.

“Sting is a good show and we need it fi continue fi help buss the next generation of artistes, but mi just no like how dem treat the artistes who inna the industry. Look how me and Killer ah do clash song and ah build a vibes and him come pon TV and just kill the clash song dem right inna the middle of the promotion, and den him ah come draw back fi we after him dun diss we. Mi caan deal wid it no more, Beenie Man said.

Last year, STING had two notable absentees from their stage show when Vybz Kartel and his former rival, Mavado were no-shows for the event; triggering a low turnout. The launch for this year’s show took place at the Wyndham Hotel on Wednesday.

Black Ryno has passport, clothes stolen during meeting

Another well-renowned Dancehall artiste finds himself scrambling for answer following a robbery of several valuables whilst attending to business.

Romane Anderson, more popularly known as Black Ryno, was robbed this past weekend while attending a meeting at the Supreme Promotions headquarters on Burlington Avenue in Kingston. The incident comes a few weeks after another popular deejay, Elephant Man, was robbed of several items while attending an event in New Kingston. Another top deejay, Macka Diamond, endured a similar fate this past during her performance at the Louise Bennett Theatre in August.

While at Supreme Promotions headquarters, thieves broke into Ryno’s vehicle; stealing a myriad of valuables including his passport, additional travel documents as well as clothing. Ryno’s passport was issued just hours prior to the incident after conducting business and is scheduled to go on tour across the Caribbean as well as Costa Rica next month prior to his performance at STING 2011.
