Dancehall artiste Bounty Killer wants to ask Obama about his American visa


KINGSTON, Jamaica — Dancehall act Bounty Killer is hoping President Barack Obama will assist him in regaining entry to the United States.


Obama arrived in the island for a one-day visit yesterday.

Bounty Killer (given name Rodney Price) posted a video last night on the social networking site Instagram showing the arrival of Obama, the deejay wrote: “The world boss is here Jamaica”. Shortly after, he commented under the video saying: “Mi a guh up deh go ask him ’bout my visa Up Park Camp.

The reference to Up Park Camp, the Jamaica Defence Force’s base, is where the President went via Marine One on his arrival.

In 2010, Bounty Killer’s American visa was cancelled. At the time, an e-mail advisory was sent to airlines travelling to the US not to board the artiste, along with three other deejays, as their visas were in the process of being revoked.

President Obama engaged in a number of activities earlier today, including bilateral talks with the Jamaican Government and with Caricom heads of government.

He is now hosting a youth forum at the University of the West Indies, Mona after which he is to participate in a wreath-laying ceremony at the Cenotaph in National Heroes Park in honour of the Jamaicans who fought and died in World War I and II.

He is expected to leave Jamaica this evening for Panama to attend the Seventh Summit of the Americas.
