Since the video’s release, Mavado has been receiving positive feedback about the song’s message of not giving up despite facing numerous obstacles. Fans have also been showing support for the deejay in his role as a father, pointing out that it cannot be easy for him to watch his son face the justice system. Some also gave him props for sticking by his son, highlighting that he may not the perfect dad, but they believe he genuinely wants better for his children.
The Dancehall entertainer’s 16-year old son is currently being held in a juvenile detention centre as he was again denied bail when he appeared in court earlier this month. He is facing charges ranging from murder to conspiracy to commit murder, arson, shooting with intent, and illegal possession of firearm and ammunition.
