Dancehall artiste Popcaan says that contrary to media reports from the BBC, he has no travel issues and will be ready to make an appearance at its 1Xtra Live provided the British broadcasting giants pay him.

The UK media house, on its website, said Popcaan would be unable to perform at the event set for October 5 because of travel issues.

However, in a post to his Instagram page on Monday, the Unruly Boss warned the media house against tarnishing his name.

“BBC me nuh want unno feel like unno can tarnish me name, innu uzeet. Me want unno tell the people dem say unno cheap and unno nuh wah pay fi weh unno fi pay fah," Popcaan said.

"Me nah pay fi perform pan no show, u coulda be BBC or MTV or BET, and furthermore, Birmingham wah see Popcaan long time so a simple ting fi unno pay unno thing weh unno fi pay and make me forward a di show and perform,” he said.

“Unno nuh try twist up me name bout travel issues. Me nuh have no travel issue me can go England any time me wah go England, yuh hear dat me just a make unu know.”
