Mavado recently released a single, “Dancehall Prophecy,” in which he pays homage to his incarcerated son while blasting critics for claiming he is a bad father for leaving the island during his son’s legal woes.

Investigators have repeatedly demanded that the Dancehall entertainer turn himself in for questioning, but he continues to remain in the United States where he holds a permanent residency.

Mavado’s son is charged with the murder of 23-year-old Lorenzo Thomas, who was shot, chopped and burned to death at his home in Cassava Piece, St Andrew back in June.

The teen is being housed at the Metcalfe Street Secure Juvenile Remand Centre and is scheduled to return to court on October 17.
