 Munga Honorebel —

Munga Honorebel’s attorney, Christopher Townsend, said the dancehall act is scheduled to appear in the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court in Kingston next Wednesday.

“We will be looking at the fine and the judge will determine if there is sufficient evidence to see if the matter will be sent to the Supreme Court,” he told Jamaica Observer’s weekly Splash.

Munga Honorebel, given name Damian Rhoden, is charged with the murder of artiste Cleveland Smith, who was shot dead at 315 Molynes Road, Kingston 20, about 1:00 am on February 12, 2017.

Townsend expressed his client’s innocence and said the deejay is still pursuing his passion.

“He has been doing music, his first love, and has been putting out quite a few singles. He does shows from time to time and makes appearances, so life goes on,” said Townsend.

According to police reports, Smith left his Moonlight Drive address on his green Rambo pedal cycle to attend a session. It is alleged that he was accosted by a group of men, one of whom was armed with a gun. Smith was shot after an altercation ensued between the men and himself. He was pronounced dead after he was taken to the Kingston Public Hospital.

Munga Honorebel was granted bail on June 23, 2017, in the sum of $500,000 after appearing at the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court in Half-Way-Tree.

According to Townsend, his bail conditions require him to report to an undisclosed police station and he is also required to live at a secret residence. Townsend said this is as a result of threats the deejay has been receiving.

Munga Honorebel, who has a career spanning almost two decades, got his break in 2005 when he teamed up with producer Don Corleon. Among his tracks are Flippin RhymesIn My Arms, and Bad From Me Born.
