Mavado is using his music to reach out to his embattled son, promising he will be ‘home soon’.

The Dancehall superstar recently released a track titled “Not Perfect,” in which he comments on his son’s situation.

The track, which is produced by his friend Charles Williston of Sponge Music, sees the deejay being unusually open. He is heard in a reflective mood while declaring his willingness to defend himself and those he loves.

“Wish mi coulda tell yuh seh mi perfect but mi not, Many of my friends are her some not, I got a couple run ins with the cops,” he croons on the track.

However, the standout lines in the track are where the deejay sends a clear message to his embattled son. “People chat and nuh know things how it go, just know very soon that yuh coming home.”

The track has been well received by fans, with most praising the deejay’s raw emotion on the single.

Since it’s release, the track has racked up over 312,000 views on YouTube and is #2 on the local trending.

Meanwhile, attorneys representing Mavado’s son recently revealed that the trial is well underway and a verdict is expected later this month.

Dante Brooks was charged jointly with 23-year-old Andre Hines for the June 5, 2018 murder of Lorenzo Thomas. Thomas was shot, chopped, and burned to death at his home in Cassava Piece, St Andrew.

Mavado’s son is also being accused of giving Hinds, an order to behead Thomas. A witness statement given to the police alleges that the juvenile gave the instruction, “Memba di boss want him head.”

Brooks has been in a juvenile detention facility in Kingston for over 2 years with multiple bail applications denied.
