Dancehall artiste Munga Honorebel is headed for a case management conference in the Supreme Court on June 6 in relation to a murder case against him.

"The case management conference will set the time periods for when the matter will be heard in the next couple of months. Right now it's wait and see... to see if the case will be thrown out or whether it will be going to trial," attorney Christopher Townsend told Loop News reporter Claude Mills.

The case management conference is an initial hearing where the judge, the attorneys and the other parties meet to discuss the issues involved in the case. 

The artiste is presently on a Caribbean tour during which he performed in Guyana over the last weekend.

"There were 12,000 people at the show, and the reviews from the show have been absolutely incredible. The crowds are happy to see him because he is selling Jamaica. Munga has become an ambassador for the art form, and he has changed the tone of his music towards relationships and more radio-friendly songs that embrace the culture of the Caribbean," said Townsend, seemingly from more than a legal perspective.

According to the attorney, Munga's latest song, 'Conch and Kalic' is doing well in the Bahamas, where conch is the national dish.

"He has made a terrific comeback, transforming the negative of this case into a positive," Townsend said.

Munga Honorebel, whose career spans nearly two decades, got his break in 2005 when he teamed up with producer Don Corleon. Among his hit tracks are ‘In My Arms’, ‘Flippin Rhymes’ and ‘Bad from Me Born’.
