Kyron Bennett of “Team No Sleep Music” says King’s murder is a serious blow to musicians seeking to shed a positive light on communities riddled with gang rivalry and drug warfare. Bennett expressed how unsafe he feels as they prepare to lay King to rest.

“To me right now, to me I feel unsafe, because we are musicians and we nuh expect these types of things to happen. Yes, we live in a neighborhood or areas that are affected by gun violence but that nuh mean these young men or deh yah people weh the pull deh yah trigger fih come and just want shoot with no, we are artist in the end. You should know that we are here to represent you guys in the perspective of the hoods we are from. For you guys to do this it gives us no reason to say we wah stay in Belize or we wah continue to try to uplift our gang territories in Belize if this is how deh wah treat us. For me, this is like a slap in the face, you know what I mean.”
