KODIAK, Alaska - Miami rapper Pitbull can now say he's safe from bears in Alaska.
Pitbull received bear repellent spray and bear bells, used by hikers to make noise, during an appearance Monday in Kodiak after tweeting he heard the local Walmart sold the spray.
In a marketing deal, Pitbull -- whose real name is Armando Christian Perez -- agreed to visit the Walmart that got the most likes on its Facebook page. Kodiak was the easy winner.
Pitbull also planned to meet and pose for pictures with fans, but no concert was planned. Kodiak Mayor Pat Branson intended to present him a key to the city with a short rap of her own.
Pitbull tweeted a picture of him holding a child onstage in Kodiak and said, "Thank U Kodiak ... I am honored, truly."
