Ninja Dan: ‘I am a better man!’

Former Soca Monarch, Jonathan ‘Ninja Dan’ St Rose has declared that he is a new and better man as a result of spending some eight years in prison for the slaying of Dwayne ‘Chubby’ James.

“I am elated,” he told the Times.

St Rose, Mervyn Nelson and Lynden Blasse were charged with the February 14, 2009 murder of  James of Maynard Hill who succumbed after being stabbed.

He explained that his experience had left him a new and better man.

“I have learnt a lot and I have a new perspective on life- the way I look at people and assess certain circumstances,”  the former Soca Monarch said.

He expressed condolences to the relatives of Dwayne ‘Chubby’ James for all they have been through.

“I feel their pain, but we too are victims of circumstances as  well because we had to plead guilty just to get our freedom,” St Rose stated.

“At the end of the day God is in charge of everything, so I am going to take it one step at a time,” St Rose told the Times.

He declared his intention to get back into music.

    You take a man life, you become a better man in eight years, then you become born free.So you can play music entertain and make movies.I wonder what the thiefs, purse snatcher’s and robber’s who have been on remand must think, I will keep the answer to my self.

    Ye without sin , cast the first stone. Yall keep saying watch your back and call him a murderer. But do you know we sin by thoughts , words and our deeds. In other words those who are thinking of killing him , even though the act is not done, are condemned by God. Only the righteous shall be set free.
