Skeng dragged off flight at airport after argument with port security
Dancehall artiste Skeng

KINGSTON, Jamaica— Dancehall young-blood Skeng was hauled off a flight at the Norman Manley International Airport at about 1:50 pm on Tuesday.

The Protocol artiste reportedly breached protocol when he got into an argument with a member of the Port Security.

Police dragged the 21-year-old artiste off the flight which was destined for Trinidad. He was charged with disorderly behaviour and resisting arrest. The artiste, whose real name is Kevaun Douglas, was offered bail and is slated to appear before the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court on June 21, 2022.

"He started behaving disorderly during an argument with a member of the Port Security. So the incident was actually before he boarded the flight. He was pulled off the flight," a representative of the Police’s Corporate Communication Unit (CCU), told OBSERVER ONLINE.

Skeng is the hottest dancehall artiste in the past year with singles such as Protocol with Tommy Lee Sparta, Heaven Passport with Intence, Gvnman Shift, and Street Cred.
