Six individuals said to be members of dancehall artiste Jahshii’s entourage were injured in a shooting incident on early Friday morning after leaving a popular nightclub on Constant Spring Road in St. Andrew. Fortunately, the artist himself was unharmed, and the injuries sustained by the entourage were not life-threatening.
Senior Superintendent Marlon Nesbeth, Head of the St. Andrew Central Police Division, confirmed the incident. Prism Marketing Consultants understands that one of the vehicles in Jahshii’s convoy was targeted and shot at approximately 4:00 a.m. It is unclear whether the artist was the intended target of the attack.
Prior to the shooting, Jahshii had reportedly switched vehicles, leaving an event where he and his entourage were in attendance. This incident follows recent allegations that Jahshii may have information regarding a killing in Grant’s Pen, which his family vehemently denies, claiming that he is being framed. Regarding the matter, the artiste was questioned and cleared by the police.
Despite the ongoing controversy surrounding the “Born Fighter” hitmaker, his career continues to flourish. He recently received two nominations for the upcoming Caribbean Music Awards showcase. Jahshii, whose real name is Mluleki Clarke, has been recognized for the “2022 Impact Award” and “Video of the Year” categories. Additionally, he has been invited to present and perform at the pre-show event on August 31, 2023, at Kings Theatre in Brooklyn, New York.
According to the event organizer, Jahshii has exhibited exceptional musical abilities and has significantly contributed to the growth and diversity of Caribbean music. The Caribbean Music Awards Showcase, organized by Caribbean Elite Magazine, aims to celebrate the talent and creativity of artists from the region, acknowledging their role in shaping and diversifying Caribbean music.
