Bounty Killer is showering praises on his baby mama after their daughter won a mini miss beauty pageant.
Rajan Price took home the winning title for this year’s staging of Mini Miss Roots FM. Her dad Rodney Price, Bounty Killer‘s government name, usually sports a cross, angry and miserable demeanor. However, the dancehall veteran was all smiles this week as he celebrated his daughter’s win with friends and family. The Poor people Governor posted images and videos to his Instagram account congratulating his daughter and her mom. The first video he posted was one of the eloquent Rajan saying thanks to all the persons who made the event and her win possible. He also posted videos of himself and his three kids as they all sat and enjoyed dinner in celebration of Rajan’s victory.
The love for the fatherly support Rodney is offering came rushing in from many Jamaican entertainers such as Jah Vinci, selector Boom Boom, Nesbeth, and Gramps Morgan from world-renown reggae group Morgan Heritage. Gramps had this to say, “Reggae princess blessings upon our children may our sacrifice never be in vain #pricefamily.” His words seem to be filled with experience; much like Bounty Killer, he would have some taste of how hard it is for entertainers to spend enough physical time with their kids.
The invention of various communication gadgets should make things a little bit easier. However, there is nothing like physically being there for your kids.
With this in mind, Rodney is also being commended for showing the mother of his daughter some love. He had this to say, “Everybody that’s enjoying @rajanaprice_page winning and success lets give it up for her mom who has worked tremendously hard to help keep her on point I only could fill in when I can she did most of the work big Thank You and Congratulation to her @thehottesthostalive.”
One person commented, “Congratulations to her mom!….. A mother’s job is never done! And @grunggaadzilla that was really great of you to acknowledge her dedication in your absence that sort of praise some don’t acknowledge blessing to your princess!”
In recent years, we have seen a lot of dancehall fathers publicly embracing their kids and taking on more active roles in their lives. Tommy Lee Sparta recently posted a video of the birthday celebratory proceeding for his son Timoy. The video captures him cutting and sharing a cake for the birthday boy and his other kids.
Research literature supports the finding that a loving and nurturing father improves outcomes for children, families, and communities.
