“Look pon Alkaline, dem man deh a go school from them little, and now, all of a sudden, a bare badness Alkaline name a call up inna. Just imagine that. All of a sudden? And when the man did a suffer him never bad? But now when him successful, a now him a go bad and life nice now? The system just love the foolishness,” Tommy Lee said in an interview with The Star
Earlier this year, Alkaline spent five days in police custody following an investigation into the shooting death Rohan Morris, who was killed in Maverley, St Andrew, on January 13.
Alkaline was eventually released after his lawyer, Peter Champagnie, made an application in court that his client is charged or released. No charges were laid against the artiste.
Tommy Lee said he has been targeted in a similar fashion, as he had to endure months of performance bans across the island, with cops continually linking his name to criminal activities.
He was barred from performing at Reggae Sumfest in Montego Bay, St James in 2015 and only returned to the show this year and delivered a short but commanding performance.
In the meantime, the trial of the popular entertainer which involves Lottery Scamming is scheduled for October 13.
