Bounty Killer is hoping President Barack Obama will assist him to regain entry to the United States.
Obama, who arrived in the island for a one-day visit on Wednesday, left yesterday to attend the Seventh Summit of the Americas in Panama.
Bounty Killer (given name Rodney Price) posted a video on Wednesday night on the social networking site Instagram showing the arrival of Obama last evening.
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].
Up-Park Camp is the Jamaica Defence Force’s base and where President Obama was taken via Marine 1 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 was engaged in a number of activities, including bilateral talks with the Jamaican Government and with Caricom heads of Government as well a youth forum at the University of the West Indies. He also participated 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, yesterday.
