Following the disgraceful behavior of judge Miss Kitty and host Yanique on the airing of the Magnum Kings and Queens of the Dancehall last Saturday action will be taken.
Executive producer of the show Mark Kenny, said he has met with the broadcaster and sponsors as to what action may be taken against either party involved in the matter.
“It was not something that was planned by our team. People will go off script, and that could be seen as unprofessional. As far as I’m concerned, these things happen in live television sometimes that are unprecedented, and the appropriate actions will be taken,” he said.
“Sanjay had to come and instruct Yanique to carry on the show and to discontinue the conversation, but it didn’t affect the running of the show,” he told the Jamaica Star.
General Manager for Television Jamaica – where the show is aired, Claire Grant said the incident will be reviewed and the next move will be determined by the station.
The alteration, which began with Miss Kitty addressing remarks made by judge Cordel ‘Skatta’ Burrell previously, saw the Fluffy Diva addressing her Curvy opponent.
“I just want to clear the air now, because mi a real woman, mi a real top gal a road so wi deal wid things directly,” Miss Kitty began. “Some things have been said, and I just want to clear them up..you and I have no beef whatsoever. This manufactured beef is disingenuous, it is duplicitous, it doesn’t exist. The manufactured feud that we have doesn’t exist at all.”
The two-minute long debacle saw Barrett firing back by taking shots at the level of professionalism exhibited by Miss Kitty, stating: We didn’t have no beef but my thing is, so instead of coming on air, how about addressing me? My dressing room is next to you, and it’s been awhile, so therefore you are doing it for the public. Kitty? Me this! Yanique. If we have an issue, you can come to my dressing room and say that.”
