Following last week’s Twitter escapade involving dancehall artistes Bounty Killer and Mr Vegas, the controversial and outspoken Mr Vegas has once again added fuel to the fire by alleging that he had a relationship with one of Bounty’s ex-girlfriends.
According to Mr Vegas, his relationship with the unnamed female is what caused the breakdown in his friendship with Bounty Killer.
“Wey it really a stem from, me carry a girl from country namenow the girl come a town, and mi see sey har head giddy, she a run road, yu see wey mi a sey. Suh him (Bounty Killer) start sleep with the girl, him mussi rent a house and put di girl inna and one a him youth dem pass an see mi a come outa the girl house, but a my girl wey mi carry from country,” Mr Vegas told Ragashanti on his talk show, Ragashanti Live.
Mr Vegas claimed that since a member of Bounty’s entourage told him (Bounty) about his relationship with the woman, Bounty Killer started questioning the woman about her relationship with him (Mr Vegas).
“After that now the man start bun mi out and call me names, all kinda something. It’s been going on for years and mi ignore this bredda,” he added.
Mr Vegas told Ragashanti that he and Bounty Killer have been at odds for over 13 years during which Bounty Killer blocked him from recording on certain popular rhythms.
“Mi nah look nuh forward, retweet, nor comments, nor likes, mi a tell yu facts. When mi wah record Pull Up mi haffi pay Skatta fi record pon di rhythm. My brethren Frenchie went to Jamaica with a rhythm. When the man link di artiste (Bounty Killer) di man sey a $250,000 fi record pon the rhythm and if Mr Vegas deh pon it him nah voice, so this is not only word throwing, this is somebody who is trying to stop yu career,” Mr Vegas said.
The artiste says Bounty Killer has insulted him in public both locally and internationally because he is a bully. When contacted by THE WEEKEND STAR, Mr Vegas revealed that he has finally decided to defend himself against Bounty Killer’s alleged attacks.
“I think this man need to grow up and give up on the fight to destroy my career. If someone keep coming at you for years and you keep running, they will continue. I have kids and I have to teach them not to be cowards,” he told THE WEEKEND STAR.
The controversy between Bounty Killer and Mr Vegas erupted last week following Bounty Killer’s decision to make disparaging comments about Mr Vegas’ Rising Stars vintage outfit.
Mr Vegas recently performed on BET and currently has a song with American pop artiste Beyoncé. Bounty Killer is now promoting a new collaboration featuring Alliance Next Generation artiste Patexx called Mi Alright.
The WEEKEND STAR made attempts to get a follow-up comment from Bounty Killer, however, none was forthcoming.
