Caribbean Culture, and more specifically Jamaican culture has made it onto the world stage amid a global outcry for normalcy, as the effects of COVID-19 remain in news headlines globally. Jamaican dancehall superheroes, Bounty Killa and Beenie Man held their own on Saturday night, giving fans of reggae and dancehall and further to that, Caribbean culture, the truest taste of the most authentic dub stand off, they’ve seen in years.

Clashes of the 90’s era came with much lyrical ammunition and while Saturday night’s setting was a far cry from what most of that era may have been used to, a peaceful, well executed dancehall clash unraveled just after 8pm on VERZUZtv’s Instagram Live platform. Over 400,000 people tuned in to see a couple of Jamaica’s finest going head to head in what has since been dubbed the most engaging virtual showdown.

Both Rihanna and Buju Banton were spotted in the LIVE viewing the epic clash.

Beenie Man and Bounty Killa drew an audience of high caliber celebrities from the US, among them, P Diddy, Ashanti, Rihanna, Ludacris, Erykah Badu, actress Gabrielle Union, regionally acclaimed and internationally loved stars like Konshens, Spice, Popcaan and Buju Banton, among countless others. The platform, created by US producers, Timbaland and Swizz Beats offered fans and celebrities alike a show like no other and with over 1 million followers on the Verzuztv platform itself, the mileage post event will likely be invaluable.

Today, one media house reminded fans of the fact that both Beenie Man and Bounty Killa have been banned from the US, having been denied visas to enter the North American country. It was urged that dialogue on the issue should now be given precedence, something that would allow both artistes to push Jamaica’s dancehall culture to millions around the world. Meanwhile, Jamaica’s Prime Minister Andrew Holness was undeniably proud of his countrymen, the leader tweeting favourably about the icons.

Machel Montano’s proving to be a stand up guy. You know how some companies hate giving refunds?…well, seems like the Monk and his cohorts at Tribe Carnival, understanding of the current climate, and the global economic effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, are extending an olive branch to fetters.

In a YouTube message posted last week, Machel is heard explaining why the inaugural Melee cruise, which was originally carded to sail in May 2021, has been pushed back.

He said plans are still ongoing, but explained that for those who have been strongly impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, forcing them to reconsider sailing with the Melee family, refunds would be afforded.
