‘Busy’ facing extradition
US Gov’t wants dancehall artiste
Tuesday, May 22, 2012

POPULAR Jamaican dancehall singjay ‘Busy Signal’ was yesterday arrested by members of the Fugitive Apprehension Team at the Norman Manley International Airport in Kingston as he disembarked a flight, at 3:45 pm, after being deported from the United Kingdom.
The artiste, whose real name is Glendale Goshia Gordon, but who has been going by the name Reanno Devon Gordon, was held in London on Friday on suspicion that he was travelling on false documents.
BUSY SIGNAL… has been under surveillance for several years
Jamaica Observer sources say Busy Signal had performed in Amsterdam and Paris last week, but cut short his tour after he apparently got wind of the fact that an extradition warrant was issued for him by the United States Government.
However, when he got to England he was refused entry into that country and detained by British Immigration officials.
The Americans have accused Gordon, who was a resident alien, of fleeing that country in 2002 before he could be sentenced on a cocaine charge in October that year.
An Observer source said yesterday that the artiste, who got bail in March 2002, is suspected of removing an ankle bracelet — used as a tracking device by US authorities to ascertain the whereabouts of a suspect on bail — and fleeing to Jamaica.
Police yesterday said the artiste has been under surveillance for several years.
He has been travelling extensively but has steered clear of the US.
Gordon is scheduled to appear in the Half-Way-Tree Resident Magistrate’s Court on Thursday. If he is extradited, he will be first high-profile Jamaican to be surrendered to the US authorities in the two years since former Tivoli Gardens strongman Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke was captured and sent to New York on drug-related charges.
A sentencing hearing is set to begin today for Coke, who pleaded guilty to racketeering.
Busy Signal is known for the popular hits One More Night — a remake of the Phil Collins original, Jamaica Love and Nah Go A Jail Again.

Man sets dogs on cops

Silas Nkala Staff Reporter | 2012-05-19 10:36:00
BINGA -A 48-year-old man from the Sinamsanga area who attacked two police constables and set dogs on them was on Thursday slapped with an effective six- month jail term.
The police officers had gone to Leonard Mutales home to arrest his son on assault charges.

Mutale pleaded guilty to charges of assaulting the officers and obstructing the course of justice when he appeared before Binga resident magistrate Stephen Ndlovu.

The court heard that on May 3 this year, Constable Piniel Magama (21), who is based at Siabuwa Police Station, went to Mutales home to arrest his son Trymore for assault charges.

Mutale pounced on Magama attacking him with fists before setting dogs on him.

Magama took to his heels with the dogs in hot pursuit.

Magama went back to the station where he teamed up with Constable Asborn Muduluza to go back to Mutales home to arrest the suspect. On arrival, Mutale pelted them with stones and logs and chased them away.

The two policemen failed to arrest Trymore.
Mutale was subsequently arrested and charged with the two counts.

In his plea, Mutale told the court that he was angered by the way Magama approached him and his son at his home.
“The policeman was bullying my son and at some point he ordered him to put his head on the ground saying he must carry Zimbabwe and that made me attack the policemen”, said Mutale.
David Never Shiku prosecuted.


Esther Saves Mordecai

Esther 3-8:14

The story that follows in chapters 3-8 gives details of a personal conflict that escalates into a nation-wide pogrom against the Jewish people.

Mordecai refused to bow to the highest court official, Haman the Agagite. In a court with strict protocol, Mordecai’s refusal to bow was a grave insult that naturally infuriated Haman, and a feud started between the two men.

When Haman saw that Mordecai did not bow down or do obeisance to him, Haman was infuriated. But he thought it beneath him to lay hands on Mordecai alone. So, having been told who Mordecai’s people were, Haman plotted to destroy all the Jews.

Read Esther 3:1-15.

There is no reason given for Mordecai’s refusal to bow. It was not against normal Jewish practice to bow to a ruler or his representative (see Joseph and his brothers in Egypt, Genesis 43:26). But Mordecai’s ancestor Saul had been an enemy of Haman’s ancestor Agag, king of the Amalekites (see 1 Samuel 15), and this may have been Mordecai’s reason. In any case, he did not follow the accepted practice, and thereby placed himself and others in danger.

Haman’s anger shifted. It had been focused on Mordecai, but finding that Mordecai was a Jew, his fury expanded to include the whole Jewish people. In a scene that formed a blueprint for anti-Semitic propaganda, Haman fed the mind of the king with ideas about a people who were different, who obeyed different laws, and who were a danger to the kingdom.

Read Esther 4:1-17

The Jews, said Haman, must be eliminated for the good of the kingdom. The king agreed, not knowing that Esther, his beloved queen, and Mordecai, the man to whom he owed his life, were both Jews. A day was set aside for the slaughter, and a decree issued to every corner of the empire.

The absolute power of the king seems strange to us, accustomed as we are to the democratic rule of law. But in Canaan and Egypt, a king was thought of as a living god. He was a sacred person who embodied, in his person, the state or kingdom that he governed. His physical body was clearly not immortal, but he was thought of as someone who was more than human, with a special and unique connection with the immortal gods. Because of this, he could do what he wanted even when, as in this case, it was clearly unjust.

BUSY???????????????????? NO MAN- EXTRADITION REQUEST!!

Glenroy Sinclair, Assignment Coordinator

Law enforcement agents have arrested another high profile figure from the West Kingston community, on an extradition warrant.

Popular dancehall artiste, Busy Signal, whose real name in Reanno Glendale Gordon, was picked up at the Norman Manley International Airport, immediately after he stepped off a flight from the United Kingdom this afternoon.

The Gleaner/Power 106 News understands that the entertainer was returning from a tour in Amsterdam.

His arrest came months after The Gleaner broke the story that a prominent entertainer was under the radar of the United States to be extradited.

‘Busy’ is said to be linked to the operations of extradited West Kingston crimelord Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke.

Coke is now awaiting sentencing in the United States on racketeering charges.

His sentencing hearing is to begin tomorrow.

According one of the law enforcement officers who spoke with The Gleaner, ‘Busy’ has been under investigation since 2002.

“I never apologised to the gays” – Beenie Man – DAMAGE CONTROL WID A SWIFTNESS-

Beenie Man returned to the island on Monday after performing at shows in The Netherlands and in Dubai in the Middle East over the past week.


“I never apologized. Jamaican people need to be more literate about life. Five years ago, we stop sing certain songs, and start focus more on dancehall to make it what it is today. I said that they (the gays) should leave us alone, don’t have us up for what we said when were young, that happened 20 years ago, nobody is the same person they were 20 years ago,” he said


“Everybody grow up, but I guess ah August mi born, so mi have to bear the burden fi everybody else. Ah me plant the oak tree that dem use crucify Jesus Christ, and my cow dem kill and make the leather that dem use and beat Him for 13 hours, and ah my hardware dem tek the hammer that dem use and nail up him hand dem, so mi ah go bear the burden dem fi everyone then, ok then,” he said, exasperatedly.


“Look here, I sell music, I do this to send all my youths to school and my grand-daughter because I am a grandfather now. I have to provide for my family. I tell these people that we, as dancehall artistes, don’t hate people, because of what they want to say or do. We don’t practise hate, we don’t want to kill gay people, we love all members of the human race, regardless of their religion, creed, race or sexual orientation,” he said.


He also addressed the sound system selectors who have been lambasting his decision to do a videotaped statement addressing his beliefs about gays.


“I told them to leave us alone, to try to understand where we are coming from, but still yu have some selectors weh go pon the mike and ah talk a bagga tings. So when the gays dem come  to the dance and want to spend $150,000, you selector bwoy, don’t tek dem money, run dem outta the dance. Dem caan use dem little birdbrain pon me, man ah lion,” he said.


“Nuff people inna dancehall who de pon tour now is because of what I said. How much food woulda eat by dancehall artistes out inna the world if I never did this? I am an international artiste with fans all over the world, mi big across the globe, I have to survive inna the real world and take care of my family.”


He also addressed fellow artiste Bounty Killer who on Monday made a statement via Twitter that he “never bawled or talked about it” when the gays banned a few of  his shows in Europe.  Killer also said that “some p—y get fraida b- bwoy through money”.


“Bounty Killer need fi tweet say ah 8 people lef inna the venue  outta 8000 fi see him perform after him ah insist say him waan close the show over Amsterdam Reggae Festival, ah dat him fi tweet, after mi perform, the show done and everybody lef…nobody never waan see him.”


Beenie Man will be shooting a video for his latest single, Dweet Again, on the Mercury riddim for the label, Chase Millz Records later this month. The single is #20 on the HYPE TV Top 20 charts.



Young actress’s pregnancy worries actor •Wife insists on DNA test

News making the rounds in the movie industry lately is the eight months pregnancy of a dark skin and highly endowed up and coming actress. The pregnancy has gradually become the latest gossip because of the people involved in it.

Late last year, this actress emerged on the scene with a top actor and director from a family that has a grip on the movie industry.

She was so active that many who sighted them together at various spots in Lagos State, concluded that they were dating each other. Many even believed that the Delta State born actress was living in the same house with the actor at that time but it was later discovered that the fair-skinned actor is her first cousin who was just trying to assist her with accommodation.

She eventually got a new place in Lekki.

At Lekki, she coincidentally was a neighbor to another top actor cum producer who had already seen her with the actor.

Within a short period, the new neighbour actor was in a romantic relationship with the actress. The affair lasted for a few months before the actress got pregnant.

At first, the actress did not know who to hold responsible for her pregnancy as she was allegedly dating more than one man at the same time.

She immediately put the pregnancy ownership on her boss, a politician from Rivers State. The fair-skinned politician rejected it and insisted that she must present a DNA test to prove his paternity.

When this failed, she sold the pregnancy story to the actor who, after giving thought to his many years of childlessness, accepted the pregnancy but informed the actress that he was already married.

Unknown to the actor, his wife had already got hint of the gossip and accepted the pregnancy too. However, by divine provision, the childless wife is now pregnant after many years and is expected to deliver her first baby for the actor, even as the actress is expected to put to bed any moment from now.

A new twist has now been introduced into the drama as the legal wife has given her husband a condition that she will only accept the actress’s unborn child only if the latter will present a DNA test to prove that her husband is the father of her child when it is born.
