Dancehall artiste Beenie Man was today (May 17) fined $150,000 (JMD) in court for breaches of the Disaster Risk Management Act in St. Elizabeth, Jamaica.
The Dancehall icon born Moses Davis was slapped with the hefty fine in the St Elizabeth Parish Court after he had earlier pleaded guilty on April 19th for breaching the Disaster Risk Management Act.
The 'undisputed' king of the dancehall had been charged for breaching the Disaster Risk Management Act and Noise Abatement Act in connection to an event that was held in Shrewsbury District, St Elizabeth on November 29. The charge for breaching the Noise Abatement Act was later dropped by the authorities.
With this court case now being water under the bridge, it's reported that King Beenie Man and his management team are presently in high gear to continue serving up some high-quality dancehall and reggae contents.
Beenie Man is set to release his 19th studio album this summer titled 'Simma'. 'Simma' follows 'Undisputed' and is his first studio album in 13 years. It's rumored to have 14 - 16 dancehall and reggae tracks with the inclusion of a few collaborations.
