Internationally acclaimed Dancehall entertainer, David “Mavado” Brooks has finally addressed rumors of a growing conflict between his Gullyside crew and Bounty Killer’s Alliance crew.
Talking with CVM OnStage’s Winford Williams following his performance at the Reggae Rhythm & Blues in New York, Mavado addressed a variety of topics; most notably the recent Gulliance drama. Mavado insisted that he has no personal issues with Bounty or the Alliance; confirming that some arguments have happened but that he’ll always be a part of the Dancehall super group. “Mavado and Killer could neva war, mi nuh tink a person can really live long enough fi see dat,” the “Pepper” singjay stressed before adding, “We always remember where we comin from no matter where we at in life, no matta di journey weh wi reach inna life & no matta wah happen.”
Mavado also addressed the recent incident in Montego Bay where he and his entourage allegedly attacked a 51 year old man and his 17 year old son hours after the singjay’s performance at Reggae Sumfest 2011. The entertainer, who suggested the media was overly focused on negativity that surrounded him, vehemently denied the allegations; explaining that he never approached anyone with a machete and that there was no physical altercation following an argument that ensued when Mavado tried to pass the man’s vehicle that was blocking he and his motorcade whilst driving along Belmont Road in St. James. Furthermore, Mavado denied knowing any details of the bribe that one of his promoters set up following the incident.
Meanwhile, Mavado expressed joy at the ability to perform in the United States once again since regaining his United States visa in July. The singjay revealed that he’s about to embark on a 30 city U.S tour and is looking to build off the momentum from his recent signing with hip-hop superstar, DJ Khaled’s We The Best Music Group.
