JAILED Zim dancehall producers DJ Fantan and DJ Levelz, together with promoter Boss Dammer, have approached the High Court seeking bail pending appeal against their conviction for violating Covid-19 regulations after they hosted a New Year’s Eve gig.
The trio was sentenced to six months in prison by magistrate Vongai Guuriro.
In their application, the two producers are claiming that if released on bail, they can help health authorities by using their influence to craft positive messages to help in the fight against COVID-19.
The trio’s arrest and subsequent conviction led to a public outcry as fellow musicians and fans alike said the sentence was too harsh for first time offenders.
Others opined that a community service sentence would be appropriate considering the work the trio has done through their music. 🔺
