Dancehall artiste Munga Honorable is in police custody and is being questioned over a possible link to a recent murder in St Andrew.

The artiste, whose real name is Damion Rhoden, reportedly turned himself in at the Hunts Bay Police Station in the parish on Monday, accompanied by his lawyer.

He is to be questioned in connection with the shooting death of a man at a dance in the Ackee Walk area of St Andrew some two weeks ago.

Also known as the 'The Gangsta Ras' and 'Wanted Man', Munga started out in the music business when he entered the Red Label Wine Superstar Competition in 1997.

He developed a versatile style as a prodigy of now dancehall foundation artiste, Capleton, and started touring with Capleton as an opening act in 2001.

In 2005, Munga teamed up with top producer Don Corleon, and his career took off with hits like Bad Like I, Flippin Rhymez, In My Arms, Earthquate and Bad From Me Born, among others.

He has expounded both gangster-style and conscious lyrics in his music.
