Dancehall deejay Skeng pleaded not guilty to disorderly conduct and resisting arrest when he appeared before the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court today.

He is set to return to court on September 8.

Christopher Townsend, the attorney-at-law representing the embattled entertainer said his team is relying on camera footage of the incident to prove his innocence.

“What we asked for was to see footage from area that demonstrates that the incident occurred. The police’s reports is conflicting the version that my client told. We were told that we will be supplied with the footage, so that’s what we’re awaiting,” Townsend said.

The 21-year-old artist, whose real name is Kevaun Douglas, was charged on May 24 for allegedly behaving disorderly during an argument with security personnel at the Norman Manley International Airport in Kingston.

He was attempting to board a flight to Trinidad, to headline the Revival Return Of Dancehall event on May 28.

After that controversy, the London deejay was listed as a persona non grata in Guyana after gunshots rang out during his performance at the Baderation Concert in held at the National Park in Georgetown on May 22.  Minister of Home Affairs for Guyana, Mr. Robeson Benn, had announced that the Jamaican artist and others who have a record of “promoting vulgar and lawless behaviour including the firing of gunshots in public places”, would be prohibited from performing publicly in the country.
