Ernest Smith, the attorney representing dancehall artiste told news source. ”It is a most irresponsible action on the part of the police,” he added “I don’t understand why the police would want to literally slander this man in the height of his career.”

some promoters have been calling to make sure their investment in the artiste is not in trouble.

“If it is, the persons who have already deposited money for him to
tour, ask for a recall or cancel the tour. Somebody’s gonna have to
pay,”
Smith argued, revealing the artiste plans to tour Europe, Africa
and South America. “I can understand when you try to get in touch with
somebody and the person’s whereabouts are unknown. I can understand when
efforts have been made to contact somebody and those efforts have been
futile. Why couldn’t they get in touch with any one of us, or even try
to locate or get in touch with him? They know where he lives!

Last year July, Tommy Lee Sparta was barred from performing at Reggae Sumfest due to safety concerns.
