International dancehall recording superstar, Moses 'Beenie Man' Davis has offered his humble apology to the Jamaica Labour Party for recent comments made, after his alleged tax evasion case on Monday, October 29.
The apology came after Beenie Man was asked by someone in court, not knowing the person was a reporter, if he thought he was being targeted because of his political affiliation. The dancehall artiste - without giving it proper thought - immediately responded, saying that he believed he was in fact being targeted, and that it is being strongly said around the music circles.
In a statement issued through Davis' publicist Ray Alexander of Khool International, on Wednesday, October 31, Beenie Man apologetically said, "After deep reflection and investigation it has come to my attention that the information and the sources around me were not credible and that my statements were grossly inaccurate.
My sources were misinformed and trying to make this issue seem political when it clearly isn't because this matter has been in front of the court from as early as April of this year, but apparently the documentations were submitted to my past management and not forwarded directly to me.
I have absolutely no bias towards the JLP government and wouldn't intentionally try to create any animosity but it is a normal human reaction if somebody tells you that somebody is fighting you to try and defend yourself.
Again I am very sorry and it was irresponsible to act on impulse before verifying that the information was truthful."
