Dancehall veteran Bounty Killer paid tribute to his deceased mother, Miss Ivy, on what would have been her birthday yesterday (March 7).
The artiste shared a picture of himself with Ms Ivy in happier times to his Instagram account, with the caption, “Happy birthday to my dear beloved mom Ms Ivy my gold gem.”
He continued, “rest well mama love endless and eternally dove”.
Bounty’s message was met with a swell of support from fans and artistes alike.
Charly Black replied, “Happy birthday to Ms Ivy. God bless her soul me general.”

Bounty Killer recently shared that the pain of losing a parent never truly goes away, while remembering Constance Christie, the mother of dancehall veteran Shabba Ranks.
At the time he shared, “Missing you like crazy sleep well my Queen. Sometimes I try not to think about it because it’s an everlasting pain and emptiness deep down inside where no doctor can prescribe a medication for what I’m feeling. I honestly don’t know when my family and I can recover from this.”
Miss Ivy, born Ivy Williams, passed away on February 26, 2012 after battling cancer.
