D-Day to file defence against Bounty lawsuit
Bounty Killer

Attorneys representing British-born Othman Mukhlis and his company Jamdown Music Limited must file a defence in the High Court of Justice in London, United Kingdom, on Wednesday, against a suit submitted by representatives of dancehall star Bounty Killer over alleged unpaid royalties.

"The defence is due this Wednesday," attorney-at-law Mike Shepherd, a partner of Cadence Solicitors LLP in London, England, told the Jamaica Observer.

"After the defence has been served, we would be happy to give a statement to discuss the case, Shepherd continued.

The dancehall deejay initially filed a suit in the UK court in June claiming that he was owed more than £325,000 (J$60 million) in royalties from Mukhlis and Jamdown Music Limited.

After Bounty Killer's attorneys filed the suit, the legal team representing Mukhlis filed a counter claim, to which Bounty Killer's legal team has mounted a defence.

Formed in September 1997, Jamdown Music Limited is a private limited company in the United Kingdom. According to its website, its main line of business activity is artistic creation. Bounty Killer, whose given name is Rodney Price, grew up in Seaview Gardens. A Grammy-nominated dancehall deejay, he is known for recordings including Fed Up, Can't Believe My Eyes, and Book, Book, Book.
