Bluugo Magnum King Robbed at Gunpoint - The 2018 Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall competition winner, Bluugo, said he is grateful to be alive after he and a member of his team were robbed at gunpoint at his home in Linstead early Thursday morning.

A frightened Bluugo said he was then taken into the living room, where he was gagged, tied up, and placed beside his friend on the ground.

The entertainer said the robbers spend another two hours ransacking his home, stacking up on whatever valuables they could find.

Bluugo said he alerted his neighbour, who called the Linstead police. The entertainer, whose given name is Marlon Powell, provided THE STAR with a receipt from the Linstead Police Station that confirms that the incident was reported.
