Demarco Responds To 'Sting Melee" Accusations - Issues Statement


SOURCE: PRISM MARKETING CONSULTANTS || DECEMBER 28, 2014|| An article published in the Sunday edition (December 28th) of the Jamaica Gleaner titled ‘Sting 2014 Stung’ which aims to review the events that unfolded at the STING concert held at Jam World, Portmore, St. Catherine on Boxing Day appears to have erred as it relates to what transpired between international recording artiste Demarco and aspiring talent Masicka, and as such True Gift Entertainment (TGE) would like to use this forum to add some clarity.


According to the Gleaner article.

“A backstage confrontation reportedly involving members of the entourages of recording artistes Demarco and Masicka was the first clear sign of the trouble which seemed to be brewing all night. Persons had to run for cover as bottles were hurled during the face-off. Explosions, believed to be gunfire, were heard, but up to late yesterday there was no word from the police as to what had transpired.



"There is no personal animosity between Demarco and me, it is just that things got out of hand with our entourages, and the situation got out of control. I was not the aggressor.



"I was backstage when Demarco walked over to me and asked me 'wah yu a deal wid?' Mi ansa that ah music mi a deal wid, and say why yu neva come up on the stage and face me that time then, why now?' Anyway, mi and him reason and we seal it up with a lion paw.

"Mi see him dawg dem come back and start circle mi car. Then Demarco forward again, but everybody tense, and then mi see a knife draw, people start tussle, fist a throw, and then two shots were fired, and everybody scatter, stampede gwaan and dem ting deh ... mi just defend myself because mi a street yute," added Masicka.


TRUE GIFT ENTERTAINMENT RESPONSE

Unfortunately for Masicka and his sensationalized erroneous narratives he
forgot to clarify a number of crucial elements in his story. After delivering one of the nights’ best performances Demarco made his way backstage conducting several interviews in the process before departing the venue. Admittedly prior to the aforementioned there was an affable exchange between the two which was affirmed by a ‘lion paw’ a gestures meaning unity and oneness. Following the departure of Demarco and his immediate team his road manager whilst still at the venue completing some business was accosted and threatened by several members of Masicka’s loutish entourage. An attempt by Demarco’s Road Manager and several onlookers to pacify the situation resulted in Masicka’s cronies brandishing a firearm and a knife resulting in the shots being fired and the melee thereafter.

A seemingly surprised Demarco who was at home at the time of the exchange has since issued a statement and it read.

“It has been brought to my attention that I was involved in an altercation with another artiste and his entourage. I would like to use this opportunity to vehemently deny the allegations being perpetuated by unscrupulous individuals seemingly aimed at sullying my reputation. I was never involved in any fracas neither verbal nor physical and will never condone any acts of violence against anyone. Neither I nor any member of my immediate team with the exception of my Road Manager who was handling some business on my behalf was at the venue during the time of the melee. Immediately following my performance I along with the team exited the venue, therefore I’m unable to expound on what transpired. Based on reports it’s unfortunate what unfolded and I hope the relevant authorities will be swift in their investigation to bring the perpetrators of such brutish acts to justice. Lastly, I would like to thank everyone for their continued support of my career throughout the years and stay tuned for some major moves in 2015.... ((bun up)).”
