Jamaica: Muta demands apology, threatens to sue Fantan Mojah over fiery remarks

IRIE FM radio broadcaster Mutabaruka has threatened to take legal action against Fantan Mojah as a result of statements made by the ‘Mama Hungry’ deejay about the well-known poet. 

Contacted on Tuesday, Mutabaruka told Loop News that he planned to pursue legal action on his return to the Corporate Area. 

“Right now, I am not following it up, I am taking part in Calabash via Zoom at Treasure Beach, but I already said what I said and, when I come back, I will figure it out. If he doesn’t make an apology, I will pursue legal action,” he said. 

The comments in question are reportedly those Fantan made about the dub poet, reggae legend Bob Marley, and former Miss World Cindy Breakespeare, who is also the mother of reggae superstar Damian “Junior Gong” Marley, in a video that went viral on social media this week. Fantan had taken umbrage to Muta’s purported critique of his recent ‘Fire King’ video, and his musings regarding Fantan’s apparent deviation from his commitment to the principles of the Rastafarian Bobo Ashanti order. 

Mutabaruka, in an audio clip on IRIE FM, expressed surprise at Fantan’s broadside.
