Bounty Killer rubbishes Iyara’s claims
Bounty Killer has responded to claims made by ex-Alliance member Iyara that he left the group because he was not getting the attention he thought he deserved.
In an article published in THE STAR on Tuesday, Iyara explained that with the Bounty Killer-led group being a big unit, the focus was hardly on him, so he decided it was time to do things on his own.
However, in a post made by Bounty Killer on Tuesday, the 'general' rubbished Iyara's claims.
"Alliance wishes Iyara all the best in his career and endeavours, but attention was not and could never be the issue yute. Maybe more like overexposure by you being in the public's eye way before fully developing proper skills. I know lyrics was always there, but variation of vocal abilities, melody schemes and flows is just coming full circle," Bounty Killer said.
Killer recounted an incident in 2017 where he had Iyara and K Queens booked as solo acts on Reggae Sumfest, but the deejay opted not to perform.
"Iyara remember Sumfest 2017, I got you and K Queens booked to do unuh own ting, perform solo, and you took a show in Canada for $2,000 instead. What exposure is bigger than a Sumfest stage in dancehall? Just always get your priority straight bredda," Bounty said.
"No man cannot declare that he left Alliance and still considered to be a part. Hell no! Busy never said he left, and he is doing his own thing from then. Bling (Dawg) didn't. Marshall didn't. They just branched off to do their own, but never announce no affiliation. And since 'own way' ting (making reference to Iyara's current song), you stopped coming to Bounty Sundays, so how do you still support Alliance?," Bounty questioned.
"If most man get 1% of the attention you got, you would realize how much you should be thankful. I'm a bit disappointed with your article because up to now you didn't say you was grateful for whatever little attention or exposure you gotten from Alliance. You only said you wanted more attention and that says a lot about a person's generosity. But handle your business Iyara."
