Jamaicans often say: ‘Wah nuh dead, nuh dash it weh’, and that might be the case for incarcerated deejay Flippa Mafia, as he recently got his high school diploma.

The revelation was made on Tuesday night via the entertainer’s Instagram page. The diploma was presented by the State of New Jersey on April 16, 2019.

“Congrats pon di achievement.”

Although there wasn’t much of a caption to accompany the picture of the certificate, that did not stop fans and well-wishers from congratulating Flippa, whose real name is Andrew Davis.

“Dat mi a talk bout, use the time to beat times,” one person said. “Bless up fam. Keep yuh head up uzeet and congrats pon di achievement,” another added.

Flippa was all smiles when he was visited by his kids.

The deejay, who also goes by the names ‘Flippa Moggela’ and ‘Flossing King’, is currently serving a 25-year prison sentence in the United States. In 2015, he was found guilty of first-degree distribution of cocaine, second-degree money laundering, and second-degree conspiracy. He will become eligible for parole in 2025.
