Dancehall Artiste Sikka Rymes Reportedly Sentenced to 3.5 Years in Prison for Domestic Violence

In a surprising turn of events, popular dancehall artiste and producer Sikka Rymes has been allegedly sentenced to three and a half years in prison for domestic violence.


The news broke through a social media post where an individual claiming to be the artiste’s wife shared a story with a popular promotion page, revealing the sentencing.

The individual, whose identity has not been officially confirmed wrote, “My soon to be ex-husband @sikka_rymes got sentenced to 3.5 years in prison for domestic violence.”

The post continued with the woman highlighting Jamaican men’s behaviour at home and abroad. The person expressed the view that the punishment handed down to Sikka Rymes should serve as a stark example for Jamaican men who might believe they can escape accountability for their abusive actions while living overseas, just as they might sometimes manage to do in Jamaica.

Furthermore, the post hinted at a deeper issue, suggesting that perhaps in Jamaica, individuals can evade serious consequences even for severe transgressions. However, she stated that it is different for foreign jurisdictions.

On the other side of the spectrum, a different set of viewers used the incident to emphasise the advantages of Jamaican men partnering with Jamaican women. They implied Jamaican women would not readily resort to legal action against their partners, conversely to their foreign counterparts.

One particular comment, left by the user @westindiian_, pointed out the need for foreign women to be cautious in their judgment of Jamaican men based on the actions of an individual. She suggested that making generalisations about an entire group based on one person’s actions is unfair and misleading.

Despite her criticism, she expressed hope that Sikka Rymes would take this experience as an opportunity for growth and change.
