 Bounty Killer took to social media platform, Instagram to give his side of what transpired when he was performing alongside fellow dancehall kingpin Beenie Man.


"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," he said.

He was responding to Trinidad and Tobago fans regarding the premature end to his performance at Guinness Fully Loaded Music Festival held at the Jean Pierre Complex in Mucurapo, on Saturday night.

"(They) think that's how it works, as long as both artiste on the show then we gonna work together. Nope."

"I was told I were next after Aidonia; only to hear they calling Bounty and Beenie together on stage. If the people noticed it took like five 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," he said.

But Bounty Killer may be in for a legal battle with the Trinidadian promoters who have refuted his comments. According to local media in Trinidad and Tobago, Scorch Limited revealed that under the terms of the contract between themselves and the artiste's management team, Bounty Killer was supposed to have performed alongside Beenie Man for a maximum of 60 minutes, and rejects claims made in the entertainer's post that they reneged on their financial obligations.

"In the circumstances, Scorch Limited rejects the suggestion that it did not meet its financial commitment to the artiste as is being alleged in various social media outlets, presumably by the artiste himself," the statement said. "Scorch Limited further calls upon the artiste to explain in the public domain how he was unaware that the terms of his engagement involved his requirement to perform with the other Jamaican dancehall artiste with whom he shared top billing, since this was an express term of the contract presented by his management company."


The statement further read that "Scorch Limited takes umbrage to any suggestion that its conduct was less than professional in this instance and will consider all legal options available to it, in an effort to restore its exceptional reputation within the entertainment industry."
