Mavado Called a ‘Deadbeat Dad’ By Internet Trolls who Claimed He Abandoned his Son
Dancehall entertainer Mavado has been receiving harsh criticism by social media users who claimed that the ‘Gully Side’ artist has abandoned his 16-year-old son who is now facing murder charges.
The ‘Beat & Teach’ deejay left the island following a shooting incident in the Cassava Piece community last month, despite his presence being demanded by the authorities for questioning. However, his defence team argued that it could not be avoided due to his international obligations.
Fans and oppositions of the entertainer decided to voice their opinions online since news broke the Mavado refused to return to Jamaica, despite his son being in police custody.
“Why did you run leave your kid that’s so wrong bro as a fan am disappointed,” said one online user, while another wrote “Talk about daddy of the year. Who would choose to be away when their child is on a murder wrap”.
However, persons close to the entertainer have insisted that the artist is doing everything in his power to provide the best legal representation for his son who is facing the charges, conspiracy to commit murder, shooting with intent, and illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition and arson.
The entertainer has reportedly insisted that his son is innocent of all the charges and has even allegedly retained Vybz Kartel‘s high powered attorney, Tom Tavares-Finson to represent his 16-year-old son.
