Beenie Man says "Alkaline dun with dutty Jamaica"

  Dancehall superstar Beenie Man launched a scathing rebuke of fellow artiste Alkaline claiming that Alkaline had abandoned his Jamaican fans, and "hi nah do no show a Jamaica, him dun with dutty Jamaica, him nah perform fi we".


"Mi just want yu to know ah dat him say outta him mouth and oonu same one ah say 'whoi', mi just wan oonu know, people mi a one of the dutty Jamaican who like come a Jamaica fi perform fi the dutty people dem. Oonu like me?" he said, before performing 'Rum and Red Bull' to vociferous cheers from the audience. 


Beenie Man was performing at Galiday Bounce held at Ewarton, St. Catherine recently.


Beenie Man has merely echoed sentiments expressed around the music industry that Alkaline had been deliberately pricing himself out of the local market because he had no desire to perform locally. The reluctance of Supreme Promotions, the promoters of Sting, to host the event last year was a direct result of challenges of paying such exorbitant fees.


Alkaline's management refused to comment on Beenie Man's remarks. 


"We have no response for that, we have no time for that," was the curt response from Kereena Beckford, the entertainer's sister and manager.
