Obama arrived in the island for a one-day visit on Wednesday (April 8).
Bounty Killer (given name Rodney Price) posted a video last night on the social networking site Instagram showing the arrival of Obama.
“The world boss is here Jamaica” – Bounty Killer via Instagram.
“Mi a guh up deh go ask him ’bout my visa [Up Park Camp],” shortly after, Killer commented under the video.
The reference to Up Park Camp, the Jamaica Defence Force’s base, is where the President went via Marine One on his arrival.
Bounty Killer’s American visa was cancelled in 2010. At that time, an e-mail advisory was sent to airlines travelling to the US not to board the artiste, along with three other deejays, as their visas were in the process of being revoked.
US President Barack Obama engaged in a number of activities earlier today, including bilateral talks with the Jamaican Government and with Caricom heads of government.
He hosted a youth forum at the University of the West Indies, Mona.
He is to participate in a wreath-laying ceremony at the Cenotaph in National Heroes Park in honour of the Jamaicans who fought and died in World War I and II.
He is expected to leave Jamaica this evening for Panama to attend the Seventh Summit of the Americas.
