The “unruly” deejay made the complaint in an Instagram post on Wednesday.
“Weird how Jamaican artist get the least love and respect in the Jamaican airport… dawg we stay up sameway,” Popcaan wrote in the post that included a photo of himself sitting on a bench at the Norman Manley International Airport (NMIA).
Popcaan was earlier this year fined $25,000, or six months imprisonment, after pleading guilty to assaulting a police officer at the NMIA in 2013.
Reports are that, on November 24, 2013, Popcaan was preparing to leave the island when he was stopped by police who requested a search of his luggage. The entertainer refused to be searched and became boisterous, using expletives to the officers.
During the dispute, the deejay used a Hennessy bottle to hit one of the policemen in the face, causing a wound to his mouth.
Followers of Popcaan’s page widely agreed with his assertion that Jamaican entertainers are being treated unfairly at the airport, with many labeling “badmind” as the root cause of the issue.
“U nah get nuh crown inna your own Kingdom,” Kay_UnrulyKid said.
