Lutan Fyah under 'Fire' - Charged with arson

By: Secret Agent Writer

lutan_fyah.jpgConscious dancehall fire-burner Lutan Fyah has been arrested by police. The 31-year-old Spanish Town born artist, whose given name is Anthony Martin, was yesterday slapped with charges of arson.

The police have alleged that Lutan Fyah was responsible for a fire that destroyed a house in Thompson Pen in the town.

According to the police, late last year Lutan Fyah went with a group of men to a yard in Thompson Pen to look for a man.

Allegations are that the DJ claimed that the man had disrespected him some time before at a stage show.

The police further allege that when the deejay couldn’t find the men, they torched the yard and attacked another man who was there. It was reported that this fire left nearly 20 people homeless. Lutan Fyah has been one of the most consistent members of the new batch of conscious talent. A former footballer, he has released scores of hits and four full length albums. They’re ‘Dem No Know Demself’, ‘A Time and Place’, ‘Phantom War’ and ‘Healthy Lifestyle’.
Among the tracks which have climbed local charts are ‘St Jago de La Vega’, and ‘Save The Juvenile’. He’s to face the Spanish Town Resident Magistrates Court on Tuesday.
