Mavado is under fire from dancehall fans who are accusing him of
fleeing Jamaica leaving his teenage son to face murder charges.
Mavado has been getting a beating on social media over the past few
weeks, and it only grew intense when police formally charged his 16-
year-old son with murder. Sources close to the Gullyside singer told
Dapstream News that is not the case and he is even making plans to
mount a high powered defense for his son.
“[Mavado] why did you run leave your kid that’s so wrong bro as a
fan am disappointed,” one fan wrote on IG while another added, “You
should go back to Jamaica and support your son. Why didn’t you take
him out the ghetto when you don’t even live in the ghetto.”
Clearly, there are a lot of dancehall fans who are upset with Mavado,
but his people are insisting that he didn’t run leaving his son
behind. “Most of who you see on the internet talking about things
they don’t know about,” sources told us. “Mavado take good care of
all his kids and even take care of other people kids. There are a lot
of kids in Cassava Piece that the general send to school. So not
because his son go in the ghetto sometimes means that’s where he
lives. That’s where he is from, some people just love to talk.”
Mavado’s son and one co-accused are facing murder, conspiracy,
and weapons charges . The teen will be tried as an adult and is
facing life in prison if convicted.
Last week, Dapstream News reported that the “Belt Buckle” singjay is
considering hiring Vybz Kartel’s high powered defense team to
handle his son’s case. The 16-year-old will be back in court this week
where he will know if he will be granted bail.
