With Buju Banton in prison for drugs and Vybz Kartel serving a life sentence for murder, things are not getting better for the reggae fraternity.
Reggae dancehall singjay Likkle Dainjah is in police custody after being arrested following his performance at Reggae Sumfest in Montego Bay.
He was taken away in handcuffs shortly after performing on Dancehall Night, held at Catherine Hall.
The entertainer, whose given name is Dwayne Ford, is being probed by the police as a person of interest in a murder that took place in St Mary in 2013.
In an interview with 18 Karat Reggae, Ford’s manager and CEO of True Loyal Records, Vaughn Wint, said Likkle Dainjah is yet to be charged.
“We are really frustrated as he was supposed to go on an ID parade but this was postponed. He has been in custody for more than 72 hours, so we will be getting an attorney involved,” Wint said.
Wint said he and Likkle Dainjah are surprised by the police’s actions.
“We are told that somebody with a name similar to his stage name was connected to a murder that happened in St Mary about two years ago. They wanted to clear his name so he was taken and placed into custody to face an ID parade.”
Wint is confident his protégé will be released after the identification parade.
Likkle Dainjah, 24, hails from Dela Vega City in Spanish Town. He is known for songs such as Burning, Run Dem Dung, and Badmind.
