Prominent Dancehall superstar, Beenie Man may go against his defiant stance regarding STING 2011 after all following a revelation that the deejay could appear at the internationally recognized stage show.
On Monday morning, Beenie Man left for the island for Montserrat where he’s expected to perform an event there that night. This, after the deejay repeatedly intimated that he would not appear at STING 2011 following what he called disrespect by the show’s main promoter, Isaiah Laing. The Let’s Go deejay claimed in a recent interview on CVM’s OnStage that he was offended by Laing’s suggestion that a possible clash between Bounty Killer and Beenie Man wasn’t relevant to Dancehall and that the promoter never gave Beenie credit for keeping the stage show alive.
However, after lyrically clashing Bounty Killer at the Diamond Splash event last Friday, the possibility exists that Beenie Man could seek a rematch versus the “War Lord” at STING early Tuesday morning at Jamworld in Portmore, St. Catherine. After Beenie Man received a lyrical trouncing in the eyes of many at Diamond Splash, Hitz 92FM, a sponsor of STING 2011 that he will return to the island to watch some of the scheduled performances at the event. Additionally, speculation mounted on Monday that Beenie Man could walk on stage during Bounty’s performance at STING to issue said rematch.
Should a clash occur, it would be the first between Bounty Killer and Beenie Man since STING 1993, still regarded as one of the greatest clashes in the show ‘s 28 year history while elevating the statuses of both deejays.
