‎(As it relates to recent allegations of bribery by a certain singjay…)”As Dancehall stars, we must always be aware that we are targets. There has to be a paradigm shift in the way those amongst us conduct themselves in public as the smallest of altercations can negatively impact all our careers. I hope that all legal issues with current DJ’s are speedily resolved with positive outcomes for the sake of Dancehall and our fans.”-ADIDJA PALMER
