  Dark days continue to haunt controversial dancehall singer Tommy Lee. 

He has been a controversial figure in dancehall due to his self-described "Gothic Dancehall" style, which often features dark and Satanist-inspired subject matter. He gained his first hit in 2011 with 'Link Pon Wi Chain' and then follow-up singles such as "Psycho," "Buss a Blank," and "Shook (Uncle Demon)," gave Tommy Lee Sparta significant exposure locally, and in 2012 he was a headlining artist for both Reggae Sumfest in Montego Bay and the Sting music festival in Portmore.

However, things have gone steadily downhill for him since that time.

 

There were rumours that he was bottled in Guyana, and that only nine persons turned up for a concert in Trinidad, and there were also false reports spread that he was detained in Costa Rica. He has taken a PR battering, but the Sparta deejay remains standing. But then his PR woes turned to legal entanglements.  

 

In February 2014 he was charged along with four others in connection with a lottery scam.

Also in February last year, the 26-year-old entertainer, along with three members of his team, Tiasha Oralie Russell, Junior Fraser and Mario Christopher Wallace, were deported from that Caribbean territory a day after their arrival. He sued the Dominican government and won, with the Dominican government now seeking an amicable settlement regarding the deportation of dancehall artiste Tommy Lee Sparta from that country.

Will he be able to win the government of Jamaica as well in the Supreme Court, or are darker days coming for the deejay?
