Top flight deejay Alkaline was questioned by the police yesterday for the second time this year. This time the questioning did not have anything to do with a murder like previously but rather this was about the guns on display in Alkaline’s video, After All.
“ACP Elan Powell is leading the investigation in relation to guns,” Superintendent Stephanie Lindsay, head of the Corporate Communications Unit of the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF), told 18 Karat Reggae. “Alkaline and his manager came in and gave statements. The investigations will continue.”
Alkaline and his sister who is also his manager were at the police station during the questioning, however, his manager was not present.
“It wasn’t one of those investigations that would have necessitated an attorney on his behalf. It was more of an internal investigation,” Alkaline’s lawyer, Peter Champagnie, said
Alkaline’s video caught the attention of police leadership because of the many guns, extreme violence and uniformed police within the video.
Both Alkaline and the video director, Jay will, have issued apologies for the video.
