DANCEHALL singer Pinchers says he is on the road to recovery following injuries received during a shooting incident last Saturday.

"Me deh pon the road," Pinchers told the Jamaica Observer in an exclusive interview yesterday.

"I'm not feeling any pain. My recovery is great. It's just an unfortunate setback. I want to thank everyone for their prayers and concern. Give thanks for life," he continued.

Two bones in the artiste's left arm were broken.

Pinchers, 49, given name Delroy Thompson, was one of four persons shot -- two fatally -- in an incident in the Queenborough area of St Andrew, last weekend.

According to the Corporate Communications Unit, the media arm of the police, at 11:20 pm armed men opened fire on a group that included Pinchers.

Ralston Daley and an unidentified man died instantly. A third person was also hurt. No arrests have been made.

"I was at the wrong place at the wrong time," the artiste said.

Despite the mishap, Pinchers said he is still focused on his music, and fans should "expect great works".

"I have a single, Inna Dis, due mid-year...early May or June. It's about cowboys and Indians. Fans will love it. It will be produced by Green Lion Production and will have an accompanying video," he said.

He also has a three-month-old single, We Need Jah Inna This (Run Things Production), and Beyond the Stars (Avican Production), which he hopes will gain some traction. He describes the latter as a girl's tune.

"We Need Jah Inna This is a reality tune that looks at life," he said.

With flashy outfits and a unique style, Pinchers ruled the airwaves during the 1980s. He had a catalogue of hit songs including No Borrow Nuh Gun, Mass Out, Lift it up Again, Return of The Don, Bandelero and Agony.
