(Jamaica Gleaner) Jamaican dancehall act Bounty Killa was denied entry to Trinidad and Tobago on Friday and sent back to Jamaica by Immigration authorities upon arrival at Piarco International Airport.
Bounty, whose birth name is Rodney Basil Pryce, was to perform on Saturday night at a concert, Cease Fire, at George V Park, St Clair. The show was supposed to also feature fellow Jamaican act Vybz Kartel.
Bounty and Vybz have had an ongoing feud over the past couple of years, which has, on several occasions, resulted in incidents of violence between their respective fans at shows in Jamaica. Produced by Jacho Entertainment, the show was advertised as a peaceful coming together of Bounty and Vybz on the same stage for the purpose of mending fences.
A representative of Jacho Entertainment told the Sunday Express on Saturday they were given no information as to why Bounty was denied entry into T&T.
“They tell us nothing. They just deport him and that was that,” the representative said.
