Elephant Man is without his infamous red Mercedes Benz this afternoon after police and tax officials seized the “energy god’s” wheels.

Music News understands that at about 2pm today, tax auditors accompanied by police raided the dancehall artiste’s Kingston home seizing his most prized whip.

Speaking to Music News, Elephant Man confirmed that tax officials had left with the car as an assurance against a sum of 7 million dollars that they say he owes.

Elly, who has been targeted by tax auditors before, says he was not worried and was focusing on his preparations for Reggae Sumfest’s dancehall night on Thursday July 24.

The station officially went on air on August 1, 1990. Reggae in the morning, Reggae in the evening, Reggae in the night was the cry. Critics said it was impossible to sustain a 24-hour Reggae music station. In fact, so strong was the impact, it proved that this format was something the Jamaican public yearned for. The 'little station that could' got all media houses in Jamaica to stand up and take note.
