Bounty Killer has sought to address his recent stint in Trinidad and Tobago.
The “WarLord” made a hasty exit at the Guinness Fully Loaded Music Festival on Saturday night during a song-for-song segment with his longtime rival Beenie Man.
According to reports, Bounty was seen backstage pacing back and forth as the “King of Dancehall” begged him to return to the stage however he refused and left the Jean Pierre Complex, Mucurapo venue.
On Tuesday, Killer took to his Instagram account to share his side of the story claiming he wasn’t paid for a clash, only to perform separately.
“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 AND THINK THATS HOW IT WORKS AS LONG AS BOTH ARTISTE ON THE SHOW THEN WE GONNA WORK TOGETHER,” He wrote. “NOPE I TOLD DEM THAT THEY HAS TO PAY FOR THAT SEPARATELY AND THEY DID NOT SO IN MY HEAD I WAS GONNA DO WHAT I WAS PAID TO DO WHICH WAS MY SOLO SET I TOLD ONE OF THE PROMOTERS I WILL DO MY SET THEN CALL UP BEENIE AT THE END AND DO A FEW AND HE SAID FINE I WAS TOLD I WERE NEXT AFTER Aidonia ONLY TO HEAR THEY CALLING BOUNTY AND BEENIE TOGETHER ON STAGE IF THE PPL NOTICED IT TOOK LIKE 5 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!!,” Killer added.
