Busy Signal talks about getting Arrested In Trinidad - OnStage Interview with Winford Williams - @BusySignal_Turf
It is regrettable that this incident has happened, however, Busy Signal and Turf Music Entertainment stand by their initial statement “we were not aware of the monies owed to Peppers Entertainment Limited.”
Juke Boxx Productions has disclosed that they received USD $30,000 for the show. Bank transfers, which were made available to Turf Music Entertainment via the promoter, indicates that USD $37,088 was sent.
Furthermore, after severing ties with Juke Boxx, documents relating to this show were never forwarded to Turf Music Entertainment; whether in print, email or hard copy format. Juke Boxx also mentioned that Busy Signal received a deposit of USD $22,500 (after deducting their 10% fee of US $2,500). This would bring the total to $25,000 USD. It therefore stands to reason that $5,000 USD paid by the promoter to Juke Boxx is still unaccounted for and was never paid to the artiste.
As it relates to the court documents, it is evident that Juke Boxx actually received $37,088 and not $30,000 as they stated, that $7,088, is also unaccounted for and was never paid to the artiste. It is indeed true that the promoter was in breach of the contract as referred to in their release:
(4. If PURCHASER fails or refuses to comply with any of the material provisions contained in the Contract or this Rider, including but not limited to filing or refusing (A) to proceed with the presentation of the engagement which is the subject of the Contract (B) To make payment (s) has set forth in this Contract on or before the dates and times specified or otherwise defaults in performing any obligations under this agreement, the ARTISTE and Juke Boxx Productions shall be entitled to retain said deposits as liquidated damages).
However, realizing the harsh economic times, Busy Signal agreed to refund the promoter $9,000 USD in 2013 (referred to in the penultimate paragraph of Juke Boxx’s statement).
With all the information that has now come to light, Busy Signal and by extension Turf Music Entertainment is therefore requesting that Juke Boxx Productions release the original contract along with all bank statements of monies received from Pepperrs Entertainment Limited regarding this event.
We therefore advise, that collecting on someone’s behalf without full disclosure can create confusion and lead to unpleasant consequences.
The wife of the late veteran reggae artiste, Gregory Isaacs, is set to reveal a mural for Isaacs Today (July 15th 2015) in Downtown Kingston – between Charles Street and Orange Street. June Isaacs shared, “Gregory Isaacs is still very dear to my heart, and this is a way for others to remember him for his music, performances and songwriting”.
The ceremony will highlight the music and charitable work done by the veteran along with tributes from friends of the music fraternity. June added “this is slated to be a remembrance of all that Gregory has contributed to music and several communities; he was a great man that aimed to make positive changes wherever he went”.
The legendary Gregory Isaacs is known for singles such as ‘Night Nurse’, ‘Number One’ and ‘Hot Stepper’ just to name a few. It has been 6 years since Gregory Isaacs’s passing and his fans still very much appreciate his music. His foundation The Gregory Isaac Foundation was formed after his passing in 2011 by June Isaacs and was done in an effort to continue his charitable work.
The core focus of the foundation is child welfare and anti drug/violence messages which are highlighted every November – Drug Awareness Month. The main beneficiaries are the Walkers Place Safety, St. Barnabas Early Childhood Institute, Black Harmony Basic School and the National Council for Drug Abuse.
The unveiling of the mural for the late Gregory Isaac is set to begin at 4pm and end at 6pm.
