The event is being promoted by Supreme Promotions and House of Dancehall headed by Michael Dawson. The last time Ninja and Merciless engaged in a lyrical showdown on stage was back in 2000 when the Merciless took on Ninja Man, Beenie Man, and Bounty Killer and won. Perhaps the Gorgon feels like its time for a rematch.
Isaiah Laing, who is the principal of Supreme Promotion, announced last week that he is canceling the annual festival Sting. Ninja Man also spoke out against Laing calling for an apology for a statement he made in an interview saying that there are no headline acts in dancehall at the moment.
“Me Ninja Man is saying this, we are tightening up the dancehall unity because look how disrespectful you are,” Ninja Man said.
Isaiah Laing also noted that Sting will return next year but in a different format.
