According to ZipFM’s website, media personality Khadine “Miss Kitty” Hylton has issued an official apology for the incident with herself and Yanique Barrett on the live television program Magnum King & Queen of Dancehall.
It had been previously announced that both Miss Kitty and Yanique would offer their sincere apologies on Saturday April 9th, to the viewers for their distasteful conduct on live television.
HER APOLOGY READS AS FOLLOWS:
“Following the verbal exchanges last Saturday, April 2 during the live broadcast of the Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall competition and reaction by members of the public, I would like to use this medium to address the matter and clarify the issues.
It was being said in the media that there was a problem or “beef” between the hostess and myself. I had no such “beef” and was surprised to see and hear this being said. I realized that this “beef” was being orchestrated in the media with the intent of stirring unwanted controversy. It is very important to note that I wanted to have no part in any such contrived spectacle for cheap popularity.
During my years in media and entertainment I have worked assiduously to build my career and brand based on genuine accomplishments and my God-given talents. In an effort to protect those accomplishments and to “clear the air” I addressed the contrived issues during the said live broadcast. Although I tried to deal with the issue decently, on reflection I admit that it was not the appropriate place to mention the matter. I chose it because the matter was raised during the live show the previous week by one of the competition’s judges and felt that I had to address it on the same “stage”.
I would like to apologize sincerely to the show’s organisers, the sponsors (Television Jamaica (TVJ), KFC, Magnum and Digicel), the artiste Shemdon after whose performance I raised the issue, the fans and last but by no means least, the viewing public.
In closing, I would also like to thank my team and the people of Jamaica for their continued support throughout the years including the past few days… so big up oonu good clean self and help me buss a Miss Kitty blank… Lalalalala…. because a progress me say!”
There will be a high-level meeting on Tuesday of executive producer, Mark Kenny, sponsors and other principals behind the Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall show to determine what action, if any, will be taken against Miss Kitty or Yanique Barrett.
The two media personalities on the show were involved a verbal war of words during a live broadcast last weekend.
“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,” Mark Kenny told The Star over the weekend.
The verbal fisticuffs on air temporarily halted the show and the stage manager, media personality Sanjay, was forced to come onstage to instruct Yanique Barrett to continue the show, and discontinue the conversation with Miss Kitty.
In the meantime, popular blogger Dr Love posted a blog where he advocated thatMiss Kitty ought to be fired because she was “outta line”.
“You want the attention, you want to start an argument, You want the attention, is not the first yu do something like this. Magnum should fire her immediately,” he said.
The incident has dominated social media since Saturday with fans weighing in to support or upbraid the parties involved.
Jamaican actor and comedian Keith “Shebada” Ramsay decided to give his take on the trending topic ofMiss Kitty and Yanique Barrett‘s brief confrontation atMagnum King & Queen of Dancehall‘s live show aired on Saturday.
According to “Shibby”, he is neither pro Kitty nor Pro Yanique but instead was more interested in seeing the drama unfold.
