INSET | Mavado, Lena Britsh, Bounty Killer
Dancehall artistes Bounty Killer and Mavado have started the new year on a positive note by settling their differences.
The artistes, who have avoided each other for the last few months in 2011, are alleged to have made amends at a recent Uptown Mondays party.
Bounty Killer and Mavado had been in a rift since late July, stemming from a single that Gullyside artiste Chase Cross released called Mash Up Everything, in which he fired lyrical shots at Bounty Killer.
Apparently, the song was not enough to ‘mash up’ anything, as Mavado and Bounty Killer were seen taking pictures and embracing each other at the popular dancehall event.
According to Alliance Next Generation manager Cross Cris, it is a good look for the New Year.
“We thank God that this has happened, because they are two artistes that have respected each other over the years. It’s a good look for 2012 to see the two dancehall ‘Gods’ link back together, Gulliance lives on,” he said.
According to Cross Cris, all pictures depicting Bounty Killer and Mavado together at the event are real.
“The link up was made at Hot Mondays and the pictures are real, even Mavado and Bounty Killer had the pictures on their BlackBerrys,” he said.
Both Mavado and Bounty Killer were unavailable for comment on the recent unification.
However, Bounty Killer spoke via twitter.com saying that Gulliance lives on, despite forces motivating negativity.
“Who look stupid now? GrunGaad and GullyGaad link up at Uptown Mondays… That is why no AFL/ANG artiste couldn’t go do any songs dissing Vado despite Waste Crosses (Chase Cross) violate the thing. There are bad apples among our bunches, sometimes your own will go against you, just leave it to God and time, simple. Gulliance lives on, big up,” he tweeted.
Cross Cris also revealed that both artistes would make a public statement on their renewed friendship, however, it is in their interest to do so in their own time.
“They will speak to the media but it has to be on their own timing, because it’s an issue that concerns both of them, so we have to just leave it to them,” he said.
Since the friction, Mavado has gone on to sign a record deal with international record label We The Best Records, and Bounty Killer has concluded the year with a show-closing performance at Sting.
Fans of the artistes also took to Cross Cris’ facebook page to voice their comments on the move by the artistes.
And of the 137 comments, the majority of the fans were applauding the artistes for their unity.
