King Yellowman is not pleased with King Beenie Man after he remade his ‘Zungguzungguguzungguzeng’ classic.

Beenie rolled out the track on July 03, 2020 nearly 4 decades after the original done by Yellowman in 1982.

Speaking with The Star, Yellowman said he wished the Doc had felt his single alone, “I wish somebody else did do Zungguzungguguzungguzeng, maybe Shaggy or Sean Paul. Me nuh even hear it. Is a friend from England text me and tell me about it. Me have a saying, yuh always have a common mango trying to be an East Indian,” he said.

Yellowman released Mister Yellowman in 1982 and followed up with his smash hit Zungguzungguguzungguzeng in 1983, which earned him the title as the ‘King of the Dancehall’. Beenie Man was later dubbed as the new King of the genre, until recently when fans transferred the title to Vybz Kartel.

“Look at it now. Bob Marley is the ‘King of Reggae’, Michael Jackson is the ‘King of Pop’, James Brown is the ‘King of Soul’, Elvis Presley is the ‘King of Rock and Roll’, and nobody not challenging that. Is only in dancehall yuh hear dem disputing this thing. Kartel seh him is ‘King of Dancehall’ and put out an album with that title,” Yellowman said.

Yellowman said the title rivalry with Beenie Man made him keep his distance even when they are booked for the same stage show. “Me nuh deal wid him. It look like dem did want to start a rivalry with me, but I am not into those things to stain my career,” he added.
