Dancehall artiste Popcaan has denied widespread media reports that he received a minor injury to his forehand after he was struck by a missile thrown from the audience during a performance in Zimbabwe.
Media reports suggested that midway his performance at the Harare International Conference Centre(HICC) in Zimbabwe on new year's day, the dancehall act was hit with a bottle flung from the crowd.
The artiste debunked the allegations on his Twitter page, "Nothing was thrown at me. Nothing hit me. Zimbabwe loves dancehall and the audience was great," Popcaan tweeted.
A report on Zimbabwean news website www.dailynews.co.zw suggested that the artiste was inadvertently hit with a bottle following a fan's attempt to embrace him on stage.
However, in an additional tweet, Popcaan said "get facts correct http://www.zimdaily.com/zimnews/king-of-dancehall-popcaan-thrills-zim-revellers.html - this is closer to the truth".
According to the report, midway through the Jamaican's act, an overzealous reveller jumped onto the stage and tried to hug the 'raving king' and all hell broke loose.
An equally overzealous security guard moved in and pushed the man on to the floor and started assaulting him with a baton.
Within a space of few seconds, the man was badly injured and bleeding from the forehead when the police finally moved in to stop the brutal assault.
This did not go down well with Popcaan and the rest of the crowd who felt there was no need for such brutality on a fan who was just trying to get closer to his star.
Popcaan then started shouting on the mic: "Please stop beating up my fan!"
Bottles and empty cans started raining in from the upper deck as fans showed their disapproval to the way the security handled the situation.
Unfortunately, one of the missiles struck Popcaan on his right forehand and the Jamaican had to run to the backstage to seek cover.
After a brief stoppage, the situation was back to normal and Popcaan, who had not been seriously hurt by the missile, returned to the stage and continued with his show.
This time, he was back with a special segment for the ladies as he dropped some of his songs like Naughty Girl,Popcaan Say and Coolie Gal.
All the drama that had happened a few minutes earlier was quickly forgotten as Popcaan was able to raise the temperature again inside the HICC.
The artiste closed his set with his widely popular tracks Party Shot, Clean, Raving, Summer Wave, Clean Stampand Only Man She Want.
After he finally left the stage, everyone in the crowd was just shouting out Popcaan's catch phrase: 'Yaaoow!'
THE STAR tried unsuccessfully to get a comment from Popcaan's manager as all calls to her cellphone went unanswered
