Dancehall artiste Munga Honorable has been granted bail on a charge of murder, for which he has been in custody for a number of weeks.

The artiste, whose real name is Damian Rhoden, had the bail granted at the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court on Friday.

The bond was in the amount of $500,000, with one or two sureties.

Munga was ordered to surrender his travels documents, and a stop order has been placed on him at all ports of exit.

The case is scheduled to be next mentioned in court on July 21.

Munga is charged with the shooting death of 27-year-old Cleveland Smith at a dance in St Andrew in May of this year.

He also faces charges of illegal possession of firearm and ammunition.

Smith was a nephew of popular artiste, Mr Vegas.

The now deceased man, who Mr Vegas has said suffered from a mental disorder, had previously chopped Munga during an encounter between the two.
