Dancehall superstar Spice has paid tribute to incarcerated deejay Ninjaman on his 55th birthday.
On Sunday the “Cool It” deejay took to Instagram to post a throwback clip herself and Ninja Man. In the clip, the veteran star is seen introducing the then young Spice to the masses at an event.
“Happy birthday Ninja Man Living Legend. Every time I see this video it bring tears to my eyes. Looking back at my journey I’ll never forget how supportive you were towards me, watch hungry spice, watch 3 piece layer hair, watch 15 year old little girl trying to make it WOW ‼️ Look at God 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾,” she wrote.
“Ninja Man never pass me back stage, no matter the hours of the morning I stayed back stage and waited on him. He always use to call me up onstage to give me a shine, simple because he knew how lyrical I was at a tender age and I wouldn’t Dap him on stage no time at all.

This is not the first occasion Spice has paid homage to Ninjaman as she also did the same in 2016.
“He was there before I got my big break, he’s one of the reason I’m so lyrical, he took me under his wings when I was trying to get out there. He taught me so much. Front teeth gold teeth don gorgon Ninja man thank you for believing in me I know you are proud. MI love yu like life,” she declared.
Ninja Man and his co-convicts were convicted of murder in December 2017. He must serve at least 25 years in prison before being eligible for parole.
