Unsettling reports on the heels of Saturday night’s Guinness Fully Loaded festival held in Trinidad- this as Rodney Price, the Jamaican entertainer best known by his stage name, Bounty Killer tells fans his reason for walking off the stage mid performance, was that he was not contractually bound to perform on stage with former musical rival, Beenie Man. Ebuzztt.com has been told otherwise by Scorch Music reps.
An article in the Jamaica Observer today is headlined, “Bounty leaves stage during Clash with Beenie Man” It states that Bounty Killer walked off the stage in the middle of a song- for- song segment with Beenie. In response, the ‘Can’t Believe Meh Eyes’ singer took to Instagram saying, “Let me state this clearly the promoters of Guinness fully loaded had never booked me to perform along with Beenie man they booked both me and Beenie as solo acts and think that’s how it works as long as both artiste on the show then we gonna work together nope I told dem that they has to pay for that separately and they did not so in my head I was gonna do what I was paid to do which was my solo set I told one of the promoters I will do my set then call up Beenie at the end and do a few and he said fine I was told I were next after Aidonia only to hear they calling bounty and Beenie together on stage if the ppl noticed it took like 5 minutes for me to came out as I wasn’t gonna bother perform since the promoter thinks that they can put me on the spot but for the love of my Trini fans I just do a short set with Beenie and leave!!
The show on Saturday night was billed as a promotion of peace, love and sound with several sound system clashes lined up amid the concert vibe. Soca heavyweight Bunji Garlin even sent the crowd wild when he unexpectedly answered Beenie’s call for his entry, releasing the venom of his Trini freestyle like only he could, and forcing the dancehall king to tell him, ‘get off mi stage.’ It was all in good fun though.
