The RJRGLEANER Communications Group is shocked and disturbed by statements made by popular dancehall deejay, Moses “Beenie Man” Davis5 min read
The RJRGLEANER Communications Group is shocked and disturbed by statements made by popular dancehall deejay, Moses “Beenie Man” Davis, calling for the “killing” of Dr. Dennis Howard, General Manager of Radio Services in our Group. In addressing an audience at what appeared to be a party, Davis then adjusted his statement to say that what he meant was the killing of Dr Howard’s career and advocated his firing from the RJRGLEANER Group.
In the statement, now being circulated in social media, the deejay criticizes Dr. Dennis Howard for dancehall music not being played on one of the Group’s radio stations, Hitz 92FM and refers to two persons leaving the station under the instigation of Dr. Howard. The Group wishes to state categorically that the persons in question both resigned their positions with the Station and were not asked to do so.
Under these circumstances, the RJRGLEANER Group has no choice but to bring the matter to the attention of the Police High Command to assist Dr. Howard in improving his security and the Group will assist Dr. Howard with any legal support that he requires.
The Group is amazed by the action of the deejay who, in the same statement, listed other stations under Dr. Howard’s management that continue to play dancehall music.
These statements are highly disrespectful and discourteous to the entire RJRGLEANER Communications Group, which is seeking to continue to serve the public of Jamaica on multiple media platforms. Mr. Davis is being called upon to retract these offensive and inflammatory statements.
