Busy Signal arrested over $37,000US In Trinidad!
Promoters in Trinidad have strike again, this time nabbing entertainer Busy Signal.
Just a month after Anthony B was arrested in the said Caribbean country over failure to repay a promoter after missing an event, Busy Signal was arrested on Saturday for a similar issue.
Music News understands that Busy was released after being arrested in Trinidad Saturday night for failing to repay over US$37,000 to a local promoter for an event some two years ago.
According to the Trinidad Express website, Busy Signal was arrested at his hotel shortly before he was slated to perform at Together as One concert. The entertainer was hauled before the Port of Spain High Court following an emergency hearing with Justice Rahim, who issued the warrant for Busy Signal’s arrest.
The article stated that Busy Signal was paid US$37,088 in 2013 to perform at a concert for Peppers Entertainment in May of that year. The promoters claimed for damages for breach of contract in the sum of US$37,088 and for interests and legal costs.
The entertainer was released after he entered into a consent order to pay US$15,000. The balance is to be paid in the next 30 days.
Efforts to get a comment from Busy Signal proved futile.
However, according to a statement making the rounds on the internet, Busy Signal’s company, ‘Turf Music Entertainment’ is allegedly requesting a copy of the original contractual agreement and all transaction regarding this matter between Juke Boxx Productions and Peppers Entertainment limited for clarity.
The statement further claims that Busy was unaware of the financial debt because his former manager would have entered into business relations on his behalf as the agent which usually handles his financial affairs.
