Tommy Lee Sparta

An upcoming artiste claiming to be a protégé of dancehall deejay Tommy Lee Sparta, has been making appearances in the media recently, having inked 666 on his forehead.

The deejay, who goes by the name Lee 2 Sparta, revealed in a recent interview that he inked himself with the symbolic numbers because he's a Sparta.

However, Tommy Lee Sparta's publicist, Keona Williams, sought to set the record straight.

"We have no idea who this individual is. Tommy Lee Sparta confirmed he knows nothing about this artiste."

She went on to state that the only male the entertainer is affiliated with is Jimbo Sparta, who, she said, is gearing up to make his entry into the dancehall sphere this summer.

Meanwhile, the battle between Tommy Lee and the Dominican government continues and the deejay now has the support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

A letter was delivered to the Minister of Foreign Affairs AJ Nicholson last month. the ministry took the case to the attention of the Dominican authorities.

Williams told The WEEKEND STAR the entertainer and his team are hoping the matter will be resolved in an amicable manner.

"Based on the inhumane treatment Tommy Lee Sparta and his travel party received, we are trying to settle the matter as soon as possible."

She also said the deejay's attorney has given the Dominican government 30 days to come to an agreement with their client or the matter will be taken to the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ).

Williams also stated that she was happy with the ministry's response, saying she hopes the process will ensure the incident does not recur with any other CARICOM national.

Tommy Lee Sparta is in preparation mode for his European tour, slated to begin on June 28, at the Amsterdam Reggae Music Festival.
