"Spanner Banner hits back"


Reggae artiste Spanner Banner has denied dating his manager Suzie Q, following allegations made by fellow reggae artiste Mr Absolute that his marriage has crumbled because of Spanner Banner and Suzie Q's personal relations.

According to a seemingly humble Spanner Banner, he is focused on positivity and does not want his name to be embroiled in a scandal.

"When I go on the street people a sey Spanner Banner how come yu mash up di man life and I am not a home wrecker. So I want people to know that it is nothing like that," he said.

The artiste also explained the reason for the speculations.

"What happen is that Miss Suzie Q signed a management and recording contract with me and we started working, recording and doing some videos. In about three weeks into the process, I began hearing allegations because people might have seen us in the studios together. Then Mr Absolute called me and asked about it. I told him straight up that I did not want to get in their personal life because I signed a management deal and not a soap opera," Spanner Banner said.

The reggae artiste disclosed that each time he tries to push his career in a positive path, he is faced with obstacles.

"I am not a passa passa artiste, but whenever I try to push my career some demon always come up as a detractor. I was tempted to break out of the contract but I was advised not to do so," he said.

Spanner Banner is currently promoting new singles Raise of Pay and Happiness. He is also expected to embark on a tour in 2013 and will debut a new album.

"My fans just know that Spanner Banner is a reserved and positive person. Don't let anybody twist your mind into negativity." Spanner Banner also had a warning for Mr Absolute.

"Leave mi name offa dem mix up deh. Mi naah mix up nuh man, suh mi nuh waah nuh man mix mi up. Mi nuh inna nuh talking wid nuh man, mi wi mek mi lawyer duh di talking," he said.
