Dancehall artistes Shenseea, Macka Diamond, Shaneil Muir, Ce’Cile and Shauna Controlla are speaking out on the stabbing of 17-year-old Kaylan Dowdie.
Dowdie was beaten by a group of women last Saturday night along Barbican Road. She is currently on life support at the University Hospital of the West Indies.
On Friday, Shaneil Muir took to her Instagram to share a prayer for the teenager. “Heavenly Father, you said NO WEAPON formed against us shall prosper! And we can do ALL things through you who strengthens us,” she wrote.
“I am far from pure or perfect but today heavenly father I want to ask you for your guardian angels to cover, mend,mold and put back together what is broken and heal your child in the name of Jesus you will bring her through in Jesus name you have done miracles Lord and today we lift our voices all together and ask you for you for healing In Jesus Name! You ARE GOD! Cover her mother help her find the strength, guidance and patience because Heavenly Father, your timing is impeccable. Give her the courage lord I pray,” Muir added.
Ce’Cile also used her platform to speak out on the horrific incident. “Fact: 17 years old On life support Beaten for no significant reason that I’ve gathered so far Beaten. Stabbed. Hit with bottle in view of others (including men) somehow it seems this fight couldn’t be broken up before it came to this KICKER: These atrocities were allegedly committed BY OTHER WOMEN..,” she said.
“This is a terrible part of who we are. There is so much anger and hate. I see it everyday on social media. Verbal abuse being dished out for NO REASON but to be MEAN.
ANOTHER STRANGE occurrence I keep seeing is a lot of MEN being UNKIND or NASTY to women for no apparent reason. Check some Instagram comments (ive gotten a lot of that myself).”
” It seems there is some personal satisfaction in being evil, in being distasteful, in being disrespectful on social media as well as in everyday life. AND A LOT OF US SEEM to be ok with it. AND THAT IS BAD..very bad. Praying this young lady makes it through and that the ones responsible WILL be held accountable. #prayforkaylandowdie.”
