Ninjaman – A Story of Reggae Redemption Gone Wrong

ninjaman reggaeNinjaman is yet another a dancehall reggae artist who has a history of drug use and arrest.

Ninjaman had many dancehall hits in the late 80s and 1990s. True to the “rude” lifestyle his lyrics embodied, he faced a lot of legal problems and accusations of (among other things) rape and murder. The negative press Ninjaman received led to career troubles and he also struggled with crack cocaine addiction.

By 1997 he had changed his name to “Brother Desmond” and sought to revive his career as a born again Christian through  the genre of “gospel reggae.”

Ninjaman was assaulted with a machete in 2001 and suffered injuries including some to the head.

In 2009 Ninjaman was arrested and charged with the murder of a man on Marl Road, in Kingston Jamaica.  To the best of our knowledge Ninjaman is still incarcerated.
