Mavado Trinidad Ban Lifted
Dancehall reggae artiste Mavado is now free to perform in Trinidad and Tobago.
The artiste was banned in 2008 due to the violent and sexual content of his lyrics.
He said that after four years he was pleased with going to the Island.
Mavado performed at the Center of Excellence in Macoya on March 29, 2011.
"Trinidad was alrite enuh because I was banned like for four and a half years. Because people didn't really believe that I was there, the crowd turnout wasn't as large as I had expected but we're supposed to go again soon and next time I know it's going to be bigger. It's just like in Guyana when that ban was lifted. When we first went back it was like 4,000 people and the next time was like 25,000 people," he told THE STAR NEWS PAPER.
The ban being lifted is only temporary, but his manager Julian said its a positive move.
The Gully Gad as he is also called is schelude to return to Trinidad on July 30, 2011.
When in Trinidad and Tobago he is only allowed to perform his positive songs.
