‘Swappi not under probe for indecent exposure’


SOCA ARTISTE: Marvin “Swappi 4D” Davis

Andrew Manswell

ISLAND People Mas creative director, Marlon Grant, has dismissed reports on social media identifying Marvin “Swappi 4D” Davis as being investigated for indecent exposure.

Grant said there was no report against Davis at any police station in south Trinidad and he called for an end to smear campaigns.

Grant stated, “On behalf of my client Marvin ‘Swappi 4D’ Davis I would like to quell even the perception that the artiste is in any way the person in question in the recent mainstream and social  media reports about a soca artiste under investigation for indecent exposure. The facts will show that there is no report logged in his name at any police station in the southern district. It is unfortunate that the individuals responsible would embark on such a smear campaign.”

Grant was responding to allegations that a popular soca artiste exposed himself to two women, including a police officer. The acts were reportedly committed at Palmiste Park, near San Fernando, in early January. 

San Fernando police however confirmed yesterday that a soca artiste was being investigated in connection with an incident at Palmiste Park, near San Fernando. The artiste has not yet been detained for questioning in connection with the incident, investigators said.
