Deejay Aidonia’s camp has denied any association with an altercation that took place during his performance at a nightclub in Ocho Rios on the weekend.
According to a report in yesterday’s STAR, The St Ann police are now searching for the persons responsible for a stabbing incident that took place during the artiste’s performance at the show dubbed ‘Ova Loaded’ on Friday night.
Information reaching The STAR is that a man had to be taken to the St Ann’s Bay Hospital on Saturday morning after he was stabbed during the event of which Aidonia was the headlining act.
The incident took place during his performance in the wee hours of Saturday morning. “Di man did a diss di artiste and di people dem neva did too like dat,” a witness explained. THE STAR further understands that a man who is alleged to have been a part of the deejay’s entourage could be implicated in the incident.
The deejay’s camp, however, explained in a release sent to The STAR, that the deejay and his entourage were not involved in the incident.
In the release, Lav, Aidonia’s road manager, is quoted as saying, “Neither Aidonia nor the J.O.P condone violence of any kind and over the last three years, we have worked hard to dispel negative images associated with dancehall. No one affiliated to us was involved in the actual stabbing incident and we express regret that the altercation occurred during Aidonia’s performance in the club. It was unfortunate, and we hope that the man makes a full recovery from the injuries.”
He added, “This is not a reflection of what dancehall is really all about … dancehall is really about people coming together, we were not involved in this altercation in any way.”
When contact was made with the Ocho Rios police, they confirmed the incident, and added that they are still collecting information to complete their investigationTweet
