Dancehall icon Bounty Killer is reaching out to the hundreds of people and industry personalities that came out Monday night in support of his late mother Miss Ivy tribute and Ni-Night in Seaview Gardens.
On Monday (March 5th) hundreds of fans and well wishers from across Jamaica turned up in Kingston to support the deejay. Additionally, several dancehall artistes, promoters and other members of the industry came out in support.
Among them include, Elephant Man, Busy Signal, Bridgez, Kiprich, Mr. Vegas, Richie Stephens and more. But perhaps the most suprising of them all was the presence of longtime rival Beenie Man.
In a message posted on Twitter this week, Bounty Killer said he is grateful for the overwhelming support he is receiving, especially from Moses Davis, Beenie Man’s government name.
“Me and my family just wanna extend our gratitude and appreciation 4 the turn out and support last nite 4 Mama. It was overwhelming to numbers of persons that came thru from as far as St. Bess and Clarendon, music industry players, media houses, and the general public, all my close friends fans and mostly to Moses Davis. The last man some ppl ‘d be looking to see came and paid his respek. Bless up the Doc as Bounty and Beenie is like PNP and JLP, we don’t need one without the other. I love Jamaican ppl yow. We The Best!!” Bounty Killer tweeted.
Bounty Killer’s mother, Miss Ivy Williams, passed away on February 26th. Killer, has not yet announced her funeral arrangements.
