Mavado alleged to have bribed U.S. official with gifts in exchange for visa

A former immigrations officer has admitted to taking bribes from a popular Jamaican entertainer in exchange for the acquisition of a U.S. visa. Several reports have indicated that entertainer is Mavado.

Dancehall superstar, Mavado has been enjoying a strong run of form in the United States since being re-issued his via two summers ago. How the singjay acquired those documents has now come into question.

A report in the Washington Examiner revealed that a U.S. Department's Diplomatic Security Service official, David J. Rainsberger plead guilty to accepting bribes from a well-known Jamaican entertainer in exchange for a visa to the country. Court documents only revealed the entertainer's initials as D.B. However, sources close to the newspaper later revealed said entertainer to be Mavado, whose real name is David Constantine Brooks.

Prosecutors said the singer presented Rainsberger with several gifts, including two luxury watches worth US$2,500, free nightclub passes and special VIP passes to events as a trade-off for help in attaining the visa. Additionally, Mavado allegedly hosted a birthday party for the former assistant regional security officer for investigations at the U.S. Embassy branch in Kingston.

Rainsberger was allegedly

befriended by Mavado after the deejay's United States visa was cancelled in 2010. He was one of five prominent Jamaican entertainers at the time who had their visas revoked in April of that year after being suspected of criminal conduct, including Beenie Man, Aidonia, his mentor, Bounty Killer and sound system owner, Ricky Trooper. After investigating those allegations against Mavado, Rainsberger granted Mavado a U.S. Visa in July 2011.

In addition to his relations with Mavado, Rainsberger was also found to have been engaged to a Jamaican woman while married to an American woman. He intentionally withheld details of his engagement from the U.S. Government, according to prosecutors.

He is now due for a sentencing hearing on April 19, where he could face up to seven years in prison.

Since acquiring the visa, Mavado signed to We The Best Music Group, a Miami-based record label under the Cash Money Records imprint and has recorded several songs with American acts such as Akon, Ace Hood and Papoose while touring across several American cities. He reportedly wed his long-time girlfriend, Monique McKenzie in Florida in January of last year.

No charges have been filed against Mavado in this matter.
