Dancehall artiste Mavado Racially Abused at NY Restaurant


Dancehall artisteMavado says he was a victim of racial profiling at an Asian restaurant in New York recently. According to the Love In Your Heart singer, he was treated like a bum and even verbally abused at the restaurant because of the colour of his skin.


The artiste, who expressed his grouse with the restaurant via his Instagram page, claims he visited the establishment to have lunch with his family and friends. However, he was unreasonably forced to sit at the back even though it was pretty much empty.

Mavado also claims the manager of the restaurant prohibited him from using his phone in any manner, after which they rushed him to eat his food, as if they did not want to accommodate him and his guests for an extended period.

The artiste says his manager was later contacted by the restaurant and they profusely apologised for their actions, highlighting that they were ignorant to his popularity.

"Just went to ... restaurant and this manager - or whoever he wants to be — was very disrespectful after I just spend a couple hundreds inside for me, my friends, and family. How could you have someone running a business and being prejudice, and trying to tell customers not to come back just because he didn't know who I am, but now he knows." Mavado posted on Instagram.

Mavado's story has since caught the attention of popular US urban media houses like TMZ and VLAD TV.

The artiste is currently promoting a single called Ain't Going Back Broke featuring Ace Hood and Future. The soon-to-be-released remix features Vybz Kartel.
