Beenie robbed in London


Beenie Man

london, england

INTERNATIONAL JAMAICAN REGGAE superstar Moses 'Beenie Man' Davis, was robbed of his Rolex watch in London on Saturday.

The event, witnessed by THE STAR reporter, ended pleasantly, however, as the entertainer got back his watch thanks to fans who chased the thief.

Beenie Man, reported to be on holiday in London, was at the opening of a record shop on Coldharbour Lane in Brixton at about 4 p.m. when the incident happened. He arrived at the shop at about 3 p.m. where he was met by a throng of fans who wanted autographs and photographs.

The entertainer took a stroll from the shop where the fans continued to mob him. It was then that a man grabbed the watch from the entertainer's hand and sped off.

Realising that Beenie Man had been robbed, fans chased the suspected robber. In an attempt to escape, the thief threw away the watch, which was was recovered and returned to Beenie, with its face damaged.


Some fans commented that the man must have been mad to snatch Beenie's watch while he was with such strong supporters. One fan said: "...Im really desperate", referring to the thief.

When Beenie Man returned to the record shop, he picked up a microphone and told his supporters: "Mi no know is who, mi see two boy, one inna a black jacket and one inna white jacket, but mi get it back."

The entertainer said he had never had such an experience.

"Mi want fi hear some music, mi want we fi dance and enjoy wi self as I have been in an accident and mi survive. What no cost life a noting. A man bust off mi watch affa mi hand, run up de road and mash up it face but that is vanity as long as you have life and prosperity everything is all right," he told the fans.
