Bounty Killer & Beenie Man `Rules’ Reggae Sumfest 2019 Festival Night 1 — WATCH

Published

on

Bounty Killer and Beenie Man stamp their authority at Reggae Sumfest Dancehall Night with some friendly fire.

Let’s go back to 1993 where Beenie Man and Bounty Killer went at it for the first time on stage at Sting. The young, energetic deejays were the toast of the town at the time with a fierce rivalry which not only divided dancehall but the country in general. To think I was born in 1993 and the rivalry between the two legends is still relevant in today’s dancehall. From making up countless times to their inevitable falling outs, these two giants have kept us entertained and are arguably the two most important columns of dancehall music.

When Reggae Sumfest team announced that Bounty Killer and Beenie Man would be on stage together in the form of a friendly clash, dancehall fans went crazy. The two best live performers in the industry would lock horns again on Sumfest stage as they did in 1995. This was Catherine Halls second time welcoming the giants on stage as they did a friendly clash in 1995 as aforementioned.

Let me tell you, last night was as great as any encounter that has ever happened between Bounty and Beenie. Both have extreme mastery of the craft which they gained from experience, and it showed. Beenie dropped a bomb, and Bounty dropped a bomb, was the theme of night. Countless exchanges of 25 years with of hits was treat for all in attendance.

The King of Dancehall came out clad in white as he did in 1993 and the Dancehall General Bounty Killer came clad in black for the friendly burial. This was the highlight of a star-studded night, living legends going at it as the young guns should be. Their command of the band, stage and crowd show us that our young artistes have some way to go in terms of entertaining audiences live. This experience cannot be described adequately with words. You’ll have to see it to believe it.

DKB Gets Back His 4,000Ghc From Dafabet To Do Charity.

Published

on

It is no news now that comedian DKB lost his bet on Ghana Black Stars to win the African Cup of Nations Tournament. Well, can you blame him, most Ghanaians were optimistic that this time around the Stars will bring back Gold. To his [DKB] disappointment the Black Stars exited at the second stage of the competition.

The comedian after the loss expressed his disappointment and admitted this was the first time he has ever placed a bet. In a social media post right after the match that saw the Ghana Black Stars out of the tournament, the comedian said “The First time I decided to put my confidence in the Black Stars and place my bet, Ghc 4000 is gone, I could have used it for something profitable like for charity…” Nothing could spell hurt more than the video the comedian put out after the disappointing defeat.

Additional information reaching us says the sports betting company; DAFABET, has decided to give back the Ghc 4000 to DKB to be used for Charity. According to the Country Manager Sybil Diawuo-Appiah, "DKB's bet got a lot of mileage across social media and news lines, so we decided to appreciate him by returning his stake amount to him for any charity of his choice”. This would mean the money is not completely lost, but would serve as a benefit to many under privileged individuals in our society.

Reaching DKB he had this to say, "I want to thank Dafabet for this privilege. It is a great favour done me. Now for my charity of choice, I will want to stick to the reason why I staked the bet, football, and help the Ghana Amputee Football Association with it. I'll donate it to them so they use it for anything they deem important to uplift their fraternity.

Dafabet, one of Asia’s and Africa’s largest gaming companies, is now fully incorporated in Ghana and licensed by the gaming commission of Ghana under the gaming act 2006 and operating on www.dafabet.com.gh
