Movado - no show at Guyana's Caribbean Jam

Thousands of Mavado fans in Guyana were disappointed on Saturday when he did not show up at the Slingerz Family’s Caribbean Jam at the National Stadium.
The dancehall artiste blamed the promoter of the Slingerz Summer Jam for his no-show at Saturday’s concert in Georgetown.

The singer confirmed that after missing his flight on Friday due to some difficulties, the promoters promised to send a private aircraft to collect him and his entourage.

Mavado said they arrived at the airport only to discover that it was a single engine Cessna aircraft. He noted that the journey from Jamaica to Guyana in the small plane with no bathroom took 19 hours.
He told reporters on Sunday that it was  “like flying in a casket” .
Meanwhile, DJ Garwin, public relations officer (PRO) of the Slingerz Family, refuted all the accusations made by the superstar, claiming that he is out to ruin the reputation of the promoters.

“Mavado’s team was responsible for their arrangements from his hometown to the airport… he said that he wanted additional money in order to make transportation arrangements to collect him from home to go to the airport at 3:00 in the morning, which we provided… He cannot blame us for his vehicle reaching late to collect him,” the Slingerz Family PRO claimed. He claimed that they have lost close to GUY$2 million.
 Mavado was slated to appear alongside fellow Jamaican artiste Tommy Lee at the Slingerz Summer Jam at the Providence Stadium.
