Popcaan explodes on ‘cheap’ BBC over ‘misleading’ report

It would be an understatement to say that Jamaican dancehall entertainer Popcaan is mad at the UK-based media entity BBC – Radio 1Xtra.

The media house reported that the artiste will not be able to perform on 1Xtra Live slated for October 5 due to travel issues.

But in a video post on Instagram on Monday (Sept 23), an agitated Popcaan slammed the article as misleading.

“BBC me nuh want unno feel like unno can tarnish me name… Me want unno tell the people dem say unno cheap and unno nuh wah pay fi weh unno fi pay fah. Me nah pay fi perform pan no show, you coulda be BBC or MTV or BET, and furthermore, Birmingham wah see Popcaan long time so a simple ting fi unno pay unno thing weh unno fi pay and make me forward a di show… Unno nuh try twist up me name bout travel issues…,” the artiste said.

Popcaan would have joined acts such as Wizkid, French Montana, DaniLeigh, Headie One, Stylo G, Ms Banks and more, on the show.
