Deejay pleads for return of travel documents and other items
With a tour scheduled to start this weekend, dancehall artiste Elephant Man is appealing for the return of documents that were stolen from his vehicle on Monday night.
The artiste said he was at an event in New Kingston on Monday night and his vehicle was in a parking lot nearby. Upon returning to a Toyota Corolla he was driving and about to drive off, he realised that one of the rear windows was broken and his two bags missing.
“Mi passport, mi documents, mi just get a copy of the brand new video for Survivor and a today it did fi come pon RE TV. The studio stuff, mi hard drive, laptop, mi need the whole a dem back. It’s a Gucci bag and a black travel pack,”
“Mi nah diss nobody, mi nah do nobody nutten, mi just need back mi bag dem. Dem fi stop walk and bruck people car. Mi just want back mi bag and mi documents. “
However, Elephant Man also had another question.
“How security deh deh and my things gone?” he asked.
Although upset, Elephant Man said incidents of this nature are not new. He said friend DJ Niceness was recently a victim as his car was stolen after an event, and that same night another friend also lost his car to thieves.
“This thing ya gone too far now, dem fi stop walk and disrespect people. These guys weh a walk and a bruck people car a get outta hand. Nobody nuh waan drive go out, dem a tek taxi,” he said.
Most important, Elephant Man said he needs the documents returned as he has already collected money for the upcoming shows in Europe, Africa and Haiti.
“Mi fi go pon tour weekend and mi need back mi stuff dem. I am going Europe and Africa for three weeks and then I am going to Haiti. I already take the promoters’ money so I need back mi stuff. If dem can just drop it off at any Alliance corner, throw it over the fence, whatever. Nobody inna Jamaica nuh fava mi, so you can’t travel on my stuff,” Elephant Man said in an interview.
