Year in review

No Comments

Yardflex now presents its final installment on the year in review.
It has certainly been a challenging year in one way or the other and prominent in the news has been our entertainers who seem to be at the heart of all the mix up
Described as cross, Angry, miserable Bounty Killer has been in and out of jail for the year in one dram or another. First he was charged for beating his girlfriend during a domestic dispute and locked up. Let’s not forget the other court appearances for other charges. Just when you thought the deejay had learned his lesson come the news that he was again at it this time with the hammer.
Kartel was taken into custody for a few days as he was wanted for questioning by the police and after resisting for several days, he finally turned himself in and was released just in time to make it to the Sunfest stage in his designed ‘prison bud’ outfit.
The sports fraternity did not escape the mix up as track coach Raymond Stewart was banned for life for allegedly obtaining performance-enhancing drug for his athletes. He continues to maintains his innocence.
Loss was also a part of this troubled year as Irie FM’s beloved founder Karl Young was among those who passed during the year, Al Goodman of the group Ray Goodman and Brown also made the transition.
After all the mayhem and controversy Christopher ‘Dudus’ coke turned himself in to the US Marshall and was escorted out of the country. During this process Rev Al Miller found himself on the wrong side of the law for his help to facilitate the process. His case is still pending.
With money being a challenge Elephant Man found he had no signal to fly the plane as he was turned back at the airport because of his failure to pay his taxes, Bounty Killer also had two of his high end vehicles seized because of the same tax issues.
On the good news side Sumfest was a blast with some great performances from local and international acts Chris Brown and Usher. Gyptian walked away with the MOBO and the Soul Train Award.
The year was not without its fair share of conflicts with Black Ryno and Kartel’s business manager Corey Todd in kas kas. Of course there was Beenie Man and LA Lewis.
