Bounty Killer delivers despite issues with Equipment at Behind The Screen


It was a militant Bounty Killer who took the stage at Tuesday night's staging of Behind The Screen. Armed with his vast catalogue of fans' favourite hits, the cross, angry, miserable Grung Gaad was in a no-joke mood as he lashed the engineers for the faulty equipment.

Reeling off songs such as Cellular Phone, Living Dangerously and Sufferer, Bounty Killer showed the audience exactly why he has been dubbed adancehall icon.

With songs dating back from as early as the 1980s, Bounty Killer proved to his die-hard fans in the audience that his talent was unmatched.

After continuously asking for the monitors on the stage to be fixed, in true 'warlord' style, Bounty Killer walked off the stage and announced that he would not be back until the technical issues were sorted out.

Not wanting the show to end, fans immediately began chanting "Bounty, Bounty," in an effort to lure the artiste back onstage.

Bounty Killer obliged his fans and once again started to perform. Songs such as Book Book Book, Mystery and Fed Up had the audience railing and screaming for more from the Alliance general.

Bounty Killer did maintain some shred of professionalism throughout his set, although he never passed on the opportunity to hit out against the engineer and express his anger about the speakers.

Backed by the Ruff Cut Band, whose members are stalwarts in their own right - and despite the technical difficulties, the DJ's set was not short on entertainment value.

Bounty Killer expertly delivered his particular brand of spirited, raw dancehall music, mixed with crass social commentary, wild antics and witty (even if satirical) humour.

Bling Dawg, I-Octane and Pattex also joined the warlord on stage for quick, high energy performances. In fact, the show was high energy from beginning to end.

After another tirade about the monitors and a slew of obscenities, Bounty Killer then showed his intimate side with the song Intimate Woman.

But while some enjoyed the performance, others say they were disappointed.

"It was somewhat disappointing overall. It started off kinda slow as he was feeling out his audience, but the technical glitches which resulted in him throwing a few tantrums obviously threw off his performance," one patron said.

Another said that, "I didn't mind the performance. I was just taken aback by the obscenities."
