Dexta Daps salutes Bounty Killer for impacting his career
Bounty Killer is often hailed as an elder of the dancehall fraternity who never shies away from giving opportunities to younger, up-and-coming talent.
Speaking candidly during the premiere of the mini-movie and music video that accompany their most recent track Slow Motion (which also features Cham), Dexta Daps believes it is time for the 'Warlord' to be recognised for this.
"This man means a lot to my career. Me and Bounty never have a song until recently and the way how I feel about that is I never had to do a song with him to learn anything. Wah this man teach me, a it response for my career out of this thing here. Wah him tell me when time me deh round him a par, a dah principle deh me use and apply to life and reach which part me reach right now," he told the attentive audience. "A nuff people don't know but me just a seh it. Give a man him roses nuh man."
Dexta Daps, who shot to fame with songs such as 7eleven is one of several artistes who came up under the tutelage of Bounty Killer and his Alliance group. Others include Wayne Marshall, Vybz Kartel, Mavado, KipRich, Busy Signal and Bling Dawg. At the premiere, Bounty Killer, whose given name is Rodney Pryce, commended Dexta Daps on his talent and progress in the business over the years. According to him, Dexta Daps has not even tapped into his full potential yet and is really in a "different zone".
Dexta Daps also used the moment to express his gratitude to dancehall heavyweights including Dave Kelly, who produced Slow Motion.
"I am feeling good you know, it is legendary. Bounty Killer, Cham, Dave Kelly. It is a whole team of stars. You know it is different, but it is a great experience. It is not something to be scared of. The experience was all about learning. It is about being open. It is no challenge," he shared.
Currently, he is working on an album titled Trilogy which is set for release this year.
