Gospel show targeted by scammers

The Kingston Jerk & Gospel Music Festival that was held on October 17, 2016, is said to have been targeted by scammers, selling fake tickets to patrons.

Organiser/gospel artiste Chozzen used the opportunity to advise patrons to use the correct medium when purchasing tickets for entertainment events.

“Our team caught up quickly, then the police handled it with urgency. The attacks came, but we were prepared for it even though it caused a few hiccups in our main show. Thankfully, we came out the victors, so we are sending up the praises,” he told THE WEEKEND STAR.

This was the second staging of the event and the organiser was pleased with the support. He attributed the success to the strong line-up and improved marketing.

“We had a stellar line-up, but our marketing team went all the way from social media to radio, television and print media. Our ambassadors took to the streets and homes literally, and our billboards were all over Kingston. Our Fashion and Karate Show, Shopping Strip, Kiddies Village, Food Village and Celebrity Cook-off went well,” he said.
