Magnum Kings’ exec gives show nod
MARK Kenny, executive producer of Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall competition — said Saturday’s airing of the televised talent show was well received by its viewers, despite the absence of judge Kaydeen ‘Miss Kitty’ Hylton and host Yanique Barrett.
“The show went very, very well and was well received by its viewers and the live audience. I think everybody was happy,” said Kenny.
Hylton and Barrett were suspended for two and one show, respectively, following a ‘war of words’ during the live show aired on TVJ on Saturday, April 2.
A pre-recording of their apology was aired just before the start of Saturday’s programme.
“It’s not about us,” they said. “It’s about the programme that showcases up-and-coming talented individuals who want to be given a chance at stardom. We apologise to them, and to you personally. And we apologise to all the persons in the media, and women in particular.”
Krystal Tomlinson took over hosting duties while media personality DJ Sunshine appeared as a replacement judge. Dancehall artiste Pamputtae was a guest judge.
Shot on location at D’Entrance on Constant Spring Road in St Andrew, the competition saw performances from Tiffy T, One Pong, Clymaxx, Pink Boss, Mi-Ya-Estro, Quench Aid, Zigma, Librato, I-Rae, and Frass Kruvas.
