Embattled entertainer Mluleki Clarke, more popularly known as Jahshii, says that he is currently in a state of numbness, declaring that “if you cut me yuh nah see nuh blood.”
The utterances were made in his latest visual, “Numb“, released less than 24 hours ago. In this emotionally charged video, Jahshii opens up about his current state of mind, stating, “Mi a fight dah fight yah anuh punch out / born as a soldier mi nuh cub scout.”
While the exact meaning behind these lyrics remains unclear, many speculate that they may be related to recent events in the artist’s life. Fans of Jahshii, particularly known for his hit “Born Fighter,” have flooded the comments section with messages of support. One user wrote,
“God will guide and protect you Jashii, love the song!!” Another commented, “I don’t normally comment, but this really touches me, be strong my brother, God is in control.”
This release comes amid a tragic incident that unfolded last Saturday. David Clarke, purportedly Jahshii’s brother, fell victim to a fatal shooting in the Grants Pen community. According to official reports, David Clarke, a 29-year-old labourer, was in a yard within Grants Pen when armed assailants approached and indiscriminately discharged their weapons. Tragically, Mr. Clarke lost his life in the hail of bullets, while another individual sustained injuries.
Community members fondly remember David Clarke, affectionately known as “Mosiah,” as a diligent and amiable young man. Testimonials affirm that he had no involvement in any criminal activities, portraying him as a genuinely good-natured individual.
This sad incident compounds the challenging circumstances already surrounding Jahshii’s family, which came under scrutiny earlier this year in connection with the investigation into the death of businessman Omar ‘Romie’ Wright. Jahshii and his family find themselves grappling with both personal loss and public attention during these difficult times.
The release of “Numb” not only showcases Jahshii’s emotional depth as an artist but also highlights the tumultuous period he and his family are currently enduring. Despite the uncertainties surrounding the lyrics, his fans stand united in offering their support and encouragement during these challenging moments.
