Mad Cobra is today responding to the acquittal of the person who allegedly shot him in the chest and arm while in his hometown in Greater Portmore, last May.

Cobra tells Music News he is disappointed with the verdict.

Jameel Johnson who was accused of shooting and injuring the dancehall deejay was acquitted when he appeared in the court on May 5, 2011.

Johnson was cleared of the charges of illegal possession of a firearm and shooting with intent after the crown offered no evidence against him. The crown was unable to establish a link between Johnson and the shooting incident.

The station officially went on air on August 1, 1990. Reggae in the morning, Reggae in the evening, Reggae in the night was the cry. Critics said it was impossible to sustain a 24-hour Reggae music station. In fact, so strong was the impact, it proved that this format was something the Jamaican public yearned for. The 'little station that could' got all media houses in Jamaica to stand up and take note.
