The dancehall community is buzzing over news that the 2015 Magnum Kings and Queens winner, Devin Di Dakta, was beaten with a belt in the parking lot of popular nightclub, Taboo, after he was forcibly removed from the club by security personnel.
A source close to the management of the club said that Devin Di Dakta allegedly harassed a dancer, and had to be removed from the club after a complaint was made.
"We got a complaint that he got a little rough with one of the dancers, and grabbed at her private parts. She complained so he was asked to exit the club. While he was exiting, he told Corey Todd (about his mother), and he took a swing at Corey, after which Corey grabbed him, took out Devin Di Dakta's belt and started to whale him with it like he was a little boy," the source said.
"Devin's entourage did nothing and none of the club's security personnel got involved. After the incident, they got into a car and left. We don't tolerate certain kinds of behaviour in the club."
The source said that the dancer, who was reportedly traumatised by the alleged sexual attack, will be making a report to the police.
However, sources close to Devin Di Dakta say that the attack was unprovoked, and stemmed from a diss song he did about Todd, and that "20 security people beat up the artiste". It is not clear if the artiste has reported the incident to the police.
Devin Di Dakta is known for songs such as Gaza Prayer and Run Mi Down.
