No, the event horizon is the limit where light can't reach. Right before an object reaches the event horizon, it can emit all the EM radiation it wants to, but as soon as it passes the event horizon, the escape velocity it needs to escape the black hole's extreme gravitational pull equals the speed of light. There is no way that light could escape form the event horizon once entering, at least according to all of the mathematical and physics equations/models I have seen.
