Trinidad Artist Kalonji Roasted After Breaking Silence On Surviving Shooting That Left Girlfriend Dead

Trinidadian dancehall artist Kalonji, best known for his hits “Run Up” and “Triple,” has been drawn attention by thousands of social media users for what they describe as a lack of empathy and self-expression following the murder of describe his girlfriend almost three weeks ago.

The 25-year-old entertainer, whose real name is Kalonji Arthur, was shot multiple times in a hotel parking lot on September 2, according to the Trinidad Guardian. His girlfriend Bridget James, who had celebrated her 25th birthday the day before, was also shot but succumbed to her injuries.

It was reported that the two were in a car in the parking lot when a group of men in another car pulled up with assault rifles and shot them with bullets.

On September 17, Kalonji appeared to be in a better mood after the horrific incident. In viral posts on Facebook and Instagram, he tried to thank God for his life and sanity and offered his condolences and apologies to the family of his late partner.

He also raised many eyebrows when he flipped the script to talk about music in the pipeline while launching his music management company, Fully8 Recordz Ltd.

“I can’t wait to get back to doing things I love, especially my music.
