Bounty Killa had a Kanye West moment at the Shaggy & Friends benefit concert and then apologised. Read what he did!

Controversial dancehall deejay, Rodney “Bounti Killer” Pryce, after his actions at the Shaggy & Friends concert on Saturday night, issued the following statement:

After nearly 20 years at the top of the Jamaican music industry I
have been involved in many battles - sometimes with fellow artists, sometimes with outside forces and sometimes with the state and its politicians. I've learnt to choose my battles wisely and the grounds upon which to fight them.

I've also learnt when to admit I didnt choose my ground wisely andSaturday night's Shaggy & Friends' show was one of those occasions.

With so many politicians and members of the upper echelons of
corporate Jamaica present, an audience I rarely get the ears of, I
got caught up in the moment while expressing myself. I now realise it was inappropriate and extend my apologies to Shaggy, his sponsors, benefactors and all in attendance who were offended by my performance.

Alliance made a pledge to donate $250,000 to the cause and we will follow through on that promise and continue to support Shaggy and answer his call whenever he reaches out.
Looking back, Shaggy will ask himself again and again why he gave Bounti Killa the microphone to go on stage in the closing moments of the Shaggy & Friends concert at Jamaica House on Saturday.

If ever there was a Kanye moment in local entertainment, it happened when the cross, miserable, angry Warlord bounced on stage at the show at the dying moments of the concert and killed what, up until then, had been a very good thing.

Killa pounced upon the “battyman dem” at the show who didn’t “give enough” to the worthy cause, the Bustamante Hospital for children. It was a real Kodak moment to see the look on the faces of those in attendance at this concert where ticket prices ranged from a high of $30,000.00 to a low of $5,000.00.

Bounti finally got a chance to face his target audience and he cursed them off in the best way he knew how “oonu a battyman, oonu don’t give enough to charity ... all of oonu man who don’t have nuh pickney .. oonu a battyman.”

Poor Shaggy looked as if he jsut wanted to fold up himself and hide in on of the guitar cases, but instead he quickly exited the stage. Nobody was going to videotape him on stage during Bounti’s anti-gay tirade and make it look as if he was in support of Bounti’s statements.

Shaggy must have given some signal to the sound people, because as soon as Bounti and Mavado left, the sound system started playing music. Patrons just stood there, waiting for something to happen on stage ... anything except the return of Bounti with more venom. Finally, as the capapcity crowd made its way through the gates, the MC went on stage and formally brought the curtain down on Shaggy & Friends.

As for Bounti, he and Mavado pledged $250,000.00 to the cause.
