Dante Brooks, the 18-year-old son of Dancehall artist Mavado has been found guilty of murder, according to Dancehall Mag. He is now facing life in prison.
Brooks and another teen, Andre Hinds, were arrested and charged in connection with the murder of Lorenzo Thomas, which took place in the St Andrew community of Cassava Piece on June 5, 2018. Prosecutors say that Brooks and Hinds were among five men who entered Thomas’ house and shot him. Thomas’ father was taken into another room, and he survived. He was able to identify his son’s killers after recognizing them from their neighborhood. Both Brooks and Hinds were found guilty, and they will be sentenced on March 10.
Mavado has addressed the situation on social media by sending love to his son. He also released a song called “Not Perfect,” which touches on his son’s trial. Mavado also told his son that he’s confident that he’ll be coming home soon in the song. The track has racked up nearly a million views since its release last week.
