Squash manager, Junior ‘Heavy D’ Fraser, confirmed that it is indeed Squash who is in the video and that the footage had been in circulation for several months, and the footage stemmed from a video shoot in Trinidad.
“The police had the video long time and know about it. People know say is Trinidad it originate from, but someone edit the video and remove the Trinidad title off it , and make it seem like is Jamaica it shoot. It is Trinidad it originate from, and that scene didn’t even make the final music video…this is just added pressure before Sumfest,” Heavy D added.
