Dancehall kingpins Beenie Man and Bounty Killer are among 43 artistes who have become shareholders in the American social media company Triller.
This latest move comes amidst the sale of Verzuz, the online streaming and performance platform created by renowned music producers Swizz Beatz and Timbaland. As part of the deal, the two principals are giving part of their equity to all 43 performers who’ve played on Verzuz since its inception, and this includes the Jamaican duo who revolutionised the format of the musical battle when they performed in May of last year.
Both deejays responded to the gesture on social media. In response to a comment by Swizz Beatz, Bounty Killer noted, “Blessings bredda salute give thanks for being part of the evolution.”
Beenie Man added “Big up to my brothers.”
