According to Jabba Jabba Dexta Daps refused to perform during his allotted time, claiming that he was owed US$1,000 for travelling expense for a previous event and also wanted 10 extra tickets.
The delay caused the show to run late and resulted in Mavado missing his set as the plug was pulled by law enforcement officers.
“I don’t give out money at the hotel, I do that at the venue. Why didn’t his manager come to the venue? I will never book him for another event, never ever. He could be the hottest artiste in America. A nuff things mi help dem youth deh with and dem ungrateful … I don’t want to see them, and they need to reach out to the fans and tell them the truth,” Jabba told The Star said.
The promoter also revealed that the incident made him think about cancelling next year’s staging of the event. However, Best of The Best 2018 is still on.
“Who God bless, no man curse. To the fans, I apologise. It is neither mine nor Mavado’s fault. I owed this man no money. I flew him in, provided transport, and fed him. So what US$1,000 for transport could he be speaking about?” he adds.
