Dancehall artiste Mavado is making rounds on social media after sharing an adorable photo along with footage of his family in the United States.

The Gully Gad, real name David Brooks was celebrating the birthday for his daughter, Daisy, when he took the photo with wife, Monique McKenzie.

Dancehall fans were pleased to see Mavado enjoying some family time as he continues to fight a legal battle for his teenage son.

Two years ago, Mavado’s son was charged jointly with 23-year-old Andre Hines for the June 5, 2018 murder of Lorenzo Thomas, otherwise called ‘Israel’ or ‘Trulups’, in Cassava Piece, St Andrew. Both were charged with conspiracy to murder, arson, shooting with intent and illegal possession of firearm and ammunition.

The teenager had also been accused of giving his co-accused, Hinds, an order to behead Thomas.

Reports were that a witness statement given to the police had alleged that Mavado’s son gave the instruction. “Memba di boss want him head,” the juvenile allegedly said to Hinds.

The statement further alleged that Hinds attempted to carry out the order but only managed to partially sever Thomas’s head.

The teenager denied the allegations when he appeared in the Corporate Area Criminal Court.
