Rival dancehall artistes Bounty Killer and Tommy Lee Sparta have denied allegations that there was a fight between them in Riverton City on Tuesday night.
It is alleged that during Tommy Lee's performance of the song Goat Head at the City Jam stage show, Bounty Killer took offence and in a rush to the stage to defend himself, he was intercepted by members of Tommy Lee's security personnel.
The STAR contacted Keona Williams, publicist for Tommy Lee Sparta, and she countered rumours that Tommy Lee was physically abused by members of Bounty Killer's entourage.
No physical altercation
"Tommy Lee was performing his set and doing well and people were loving him in Bounty Killer's community. When he sang the song about Goat Head, Bounty felt offended and members of his entourage rushed the stage to defend Bounty but it was squashed by Tommy Lee's security personnel. So there was no physical altercation," she said.
According to the publicist, Tommy Lee's camp can prove that allegations that he received an Alliance beat down were fraud.
"We have the video footage and we will release it tonight. Tommy Lee Sparta was not touched and they cannot touch him. He is good, he recently came from his Caribbean tour performing in St Vincent, Barbados and Antigua, where he did a series of Halloween events, plus he is ready for Sting and has all the songs to deliver. We have a strong security so no one can try and assault him," Williams said.
In the meantime, Bounty Killer took to his Twitter account to shed some light on the issue.
"First, let me state it clearly, nobody nuh box nobody and that was never intended either. All mi know boy inna mi place and dissed mi pon stage, so mi step to stage to defend it, and a pure commotion. Heady D and police dem a block up the stage, so mi say if him naah defend it tell, him fi cut now and .... (him) flee," he continued.
"Then Heavy D send police come lock off the show, a 10 police car Heady D carry over deh, but tell any boy calling up mi name dem better plan to defend it. A call up man name fi look big pon stage, yu nuh waah clash, nuh call up mi name then ... simple. Any wey mi see dem mi rush dem," Bounty Killer tweeted.
