Jamaican dancehall Star Rodney Basil Price commonly known as Bounty Killer has hailed immense praise on fellow Jamaican reggae and dancehall Singer Orville Richard Burrell popularly known as Shaggy as the best export from Jamaica as far as music is concerned.
The husky-voiced Singer took to Instagram where he shared a video of Shaggy performing his timeless hit ‘Angel’ in a totally sold out event in Auckland.He gave Shaggy his flowers by acknowledging his legacy.
The biggest deejay out of Jamaica same way🇯🇲
Diamond League 💎who nuh like it bite it and fight it 👈@direalshaggy
Auckland NZ did their thing… a great way to end the tour!! Super lit🔥I had a blast… Catch up next time! Love 🇯🇲”Captioned Bounty Killer.
The ‘It wasn’t me’ Singer also came through and thanked Bounty for showing him love.
” 🙏Give thanks mi general!!! “replied Shaggy.
Another Jamaican top act Beanie Man also saluted Shaggy by dropping fire emoji’s.
However, a section elicited a heated debate on how good music lasts forever unlike others that are laced with violent lyrics like is the case in most songs by Jamaican artist’s.
“Good music alone ago live on 🔥🔥🔥🔥” wrote a fan.
“❤️🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥❤️❤️🔥🔥Real medz and the music clean and a talk real ting, big up the artist” wrote another fan.
“Good music most Jamaican artist can do this but all them sing about is killing and the other shit..” read another comment.
Both Bounty Killer and Shaggy are pioneers in the Jamaican musical scene. They’ve clocked fifty years and still not shown signs of slowing down.
Their paths are however world’s apart with Bounty Killer being more aggressive in his violent lyrics unlike Shaggy whose more reserved.
Bounty Killer also had a long standing beef with Beanie Man although they later reached a truce.Bounty has had to clean up his image when the Jamaican government through Prime Minister Andrew Holness cited dancehall as a leading contributor to violent crimes and murder.
To date,Bounty Killer and Shaggy remain as leading Jamaican Star’s and run noble charity causes for the community.
