Producer Of Magnum Express Disappointment Over Statements Made By RankinPumpkin

Executive producer of the Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall, Mark Kenny have discredit the notion that Japanese artiste Rankin Pumpkin hijacked this year’s competition.

“It is impossible to rig the show because it’s a public vote and it is audited,” Kenny told The Star.

Kenny also respond to statements made by RankinPumpkin that she was subjected to racists comments from audience and contestants.

“Many racist comments from audience and contestants. Also one of the judge of the competition, I was very surprise how I was treated as a Japanese citizen. It seems as if they don`t want any other citizens to be in their competition. In some point, I wanted to quit more than once, but my Jamaican producer, African Symbol, say don`t quit,” Rankin wrote on her official Facebook fan-page on Sunday (May 29).

However, Kenny revealed that he was surprised at her statements especially given the fact that she made it to the finals.

“That’s very disappointing that she said those things. She had a very good camaraderie with people backstage. She didn’t go to any of the producers and give information about ill-treatment, or derogatory comments.”
