Warning: PROMOTERS …Be Aware Attitude Sucks
First, Presentation1.jpgI would like to sincerely apologize to everyone for the turn of events on Saturday, Nov. 8, during the Fall Reggae Concert featuring Gyptian, at the Stargazers Theater and Event Center.
I must confess, I was one of his biggest fans. I would fall asleep listening to this artist on YouTube. The thought of booking him to come to Colorado Springs, so that all his fans could share in the experience was a dream comes true, for me and my husband. Then he showed up, and my dream along with that of a lot of his fans, turned into a nightmare.
I felt as if at any moment I would wake up from this nightmare. Nothing was making sense. Yes, I’ll confess, I am not a professional promoter. My husband and I does this because, we love the music, love the food and love our Jamaican culture. We are happy to share this with our patrons who equally love reggae music, the food and the culture. So that, you can understand my shock, here’s a bit of my history.
In the past, I’ve worked with international superstars, to include Reggae Ambassadors, Third World; Everton Blender and Frankie Paul. I’ve met Pressure Busspipe to name a few, and I must say these are the most humble, respectful artists I’ve had the pleasure to meet and work with. Also, during my 24-years in the military I’ve worked with Admirals and Generals, met the President personally, interacted and worked closely with international dignitaries, and I have never met such arrogance and disrespect.
Now, back to the reason for being shocked, after performing for only 30-minutes, the fans disappointed and asking questions, I went to the green room to check if he was going back on stage.
After, a few exchanges with a member on Gyptian’s team, the artist suddenly flew off the handle, got angry and started to spew profanity.
His quote exactly, “Who is this *@#$ woman come talking to me. Go and suck out your mother and don’t come here talking to me.” This was witnessed by some of his fans, waiting to take pictures. Granted, I approached him as the promoter who is concerned. He stormed out of the building with no regard to the respect to his fans, spewing profanity.
Immediately, I realized his immaturity and that he operates purely from fear and the egotistical self. In Jamaica those insults are usually used by elementary kids, who are a not mature enough to engage in more civil disagreements. Adults use it because they are not educated enough, in the art of reasoning and handling situations on a mature level. I immediately, sensed that this artist cares nothing about his fans, or himself, but only about how others perceive him as this great “International Superstar.”
Due to his late appearance, we had to refund more than $1,300 in tickets prior to him showing up, however, unfortunately we are not able to make any refunds thereafter, because everything was paid out to the artist as contractual obligation.
We are still trying to wrap our heads around the events of the evening and what transpired. One conclusion/consensus, those closest to the event felt, is this may be a deliberate act of sabotage or disrespect. It appears, the Gyptian team deliberately tried to sabotage and discredit Spice Island Grill and the Stargazers Theater and Event Center business.
With much anticipation we coordinated this event together, so that it would be a great experience for you, the patrons. However, it seemed at every turn the artist, Gyptian, and his booking agent Rahim Visram @ Edge_Agency did everything to sabotage this event.
We spent the last two days asking the why questions? We ask the manager, as professionals who travel extensively, why didn’t they book their flight earlier so they could build time in for delays? Why didn’t they show up on time for the event? Why Gyptian and his team did not care enough about their fans to apologize and explain their delays? Why did he blame the sound system, when they didn’t arrive at the venue in advance to perform a sound check? Why was his (Gyptian’s) DJ not very knowledgeable about tuning a sound system? And, the biggest Why is – after showing 3-hours late he only performed for 30 minutes?
My un-objective answer — he doesn’t respect his fans, the promoter, the venue, his manager, and most of all himself. In my opinion, I think he is a con-reggae-artist, using his fans and inexperienced promoters to pursue his own agenda. He promoted himself as an international superstar, but upon meeting him you can see he has no respect for himself, females or his fans. The fans waiting in line for his autograph on Nov. 8, was witness, and can attest to the uncouth behavior he displayed.
In order to keep the story brief, I must end with just the sheer disappointment that everyone feels. The anticipation and joy everyone felt leading up to that moment when he would arrive. And, just the let down and disappointment everyone sensed by his character and behavior.
Again, we sincerely apologize for the debacle of the night. I can assure you that the Stargazers Theater and Event staff and the Spice Island Grill staff went above and beyond to ensure everything went smoothly.
But, the question still remains, why did the Gyptian’s staff go out of their way to disappoint their fans, sabotage the promoter, and disrespect the event center staff?
Bottomline, he was paid $5,500 for appearance fees, was booked in one of the best hotels (a suite at the Antlers Hilton Hotel) he got the best weed (because apparently he couldn’t perform without it). After arriving 3-hours late, to fans eagerly waiting, his biggest displeasure with the venue is that there wasn’t enough liquor, with the proper glasses, in the green room.
To express my disappointment and frustration, I would say my advice, to you Con-Reggae-Artist, Gyptian is, “Go to hell.” In my opinion, you are an international thug. You are a disappointment to your country, the one I love, your fans and yourself. Get your head out of your ass and learn to be a person with a heart, first, and remember that the fans are the ones who make you who you are today.

  1. Morning Met and Metters. This is beyond outtaordaness and lack of professionalism. What a thug, because him know him a deal wid some decent ppl, if it was a bad bwoy promoter him wudnt gwan suh cuz im wuda get a page. When my friend did book Mavado fi a show in ATL, no diva antics cuz im know a Dunkirk man show dat. When thesr fartiste do them thing, drm fi get bad press, and less stages fi book. Mek dem pocket hurt dem. What a rass. Cuz im nuh rass.

  2. I’ve known this idiot for quite sometime and this is how he is. From what’s I’ve learned gyptian is not fully hundred. I even heard he sometimes sniff coke. He’s so quick to diss people man women or his fans. That’s how he even deals with his own family. I’ve been around to witness this. Bottom line this boy has no manners whatsoever and promoters should start boycott him and his possy

    1. You know I suspected Coke when I reached the part about him becoming unhinged at she began to quote
      I would take him and him team to the court house and get back me money so me can buy top notch pillow fi kneel dung and suck me mada as him suggest, at his expense…bitch ass man.

  3. I stop going to reggae shows years ago due to these shows starting 1-3 hours late, artists not showing up and slow band change, etc., etc., etc. When people stop going to their shows, then they will get the message. Very few artists make money from their songs anymore and depend on these live performances for the livelihood. Time we boycott the them.

  4. Why surprising?
    His behavior is like that of most male immature low self esteem jamaican assholes in show business who call themselves celebrities artists promoters and radio personalities.

  5. 30 minutes is an OK amount of time. A lot of artists can’t perform for 30 minutes. Not sure of her expectations, but a 30 minutes performance for $5,500 is OK. The unprofessionalism seems to be a part of the industry. Dancehall artists are known to arrive late. Typically they don’t reach before 2 a.m., promoters should know that.
    To treat fans like shit, then fans should boycott , because no one needs to pay to be insulted.

    1. It all depends on the market and the artists ability to draw crowd. Gyptian may not be such a big draw in Colorado. It he agrees to the $5500, put on the best performance so he will build his fan base for the next time.
      I remember a while back going to a show in CT with many artists, Garnet Silk, Coco Tea, Beenie Man, Bounty Killa and many more. Lots of artists performed and Bounty didn’t get all his money and refused to perform. The place was jam packed and Beenie came on stage and gave big time performance. Before he performed, he said he didn’t get all his money but he had performed for free in his early days so he will perform for the fans for the little he got from the promoter. That day my respect for Beenie was solidified and it will never change.

      1. Hey Kunta :peluk..ah true…people is a great entertainer; always dancing and gives a great performance every time…he is also a people person who loves to mix and mingle with his fans…just an all around great guy and great entertainer :rate

  6. Dis piece ah dry bone nuh have no respect fe ooman. But mi ah wonda if ah becaws true seh ah “REAL” ooman ah him competition.

  7. We need to stop promoting/supporting people like Gyptian. This “artiste” has failed to solidify himself as a relevant dancehall “artiste”.

  8. Yes it’s full time he is too disrespectful it’s like he has quick silver. He’s so quick to diss people and the first thing comes out his mouth I’d suck yuh madda . My friend who use to date him said he even tells his own mom to suck her mother. He’s bipolar and needs serious psychiatric help. And my friend told me she saw coke on his dresser once and he told her it was for his friend. He’s mentally ill. He gave her a terrible infection then cursed her out that it was her who gave it to him knowingly that he’s a walking std. He buys a lot of whores. I don’t know how people still book him for shows cause he’s crazy.

  9. a long time diss dread a move so, a people like him, why reggae music and dancehall deh pon a low now. deh too hard fi deal wid

  10. most artist don’t care if promoters mek money as long as dem get pay. artists and soundman a kill wi music and culture, wid dem show up late, only play n sing wah dem feel like. short set etc
    di up di artist dem and some soundman who show up early a venue even if dem nah on…. so people know dem deh bout.
    most promoter stop put on show fi dem same reasons di artist dem a act like pimps. some promota a groupie and just keep show fi meet dem

    1. A lot of promoters use it to launder money. They are not really looking to make a profit, just break even or close to break-even.

  11. Here is what the dread had to say “go suck yo Madda”!!!! Unfortunately I think we in Colorado have given up on him, he was on tour with Etana a yr or 2 ago, he cancelled, but was sitting right on the tour bus outside whole time! Trust me, we get some nice shows here (and they ALL play longer than 30mins every time), no need to support someone who has no respect for me the fan…..Bless!

    1. Bless up Colorado! If this is the attitude the time will come where him may need fi “suck” him madda fi eat and shelter. Boycott these mongrels should be in order, without delay.

    3. Then with all this filth that you taking the time to type, dome body really hire you. Man…..even if I needed the show for air I couldn’t hire you because you cannot even have a normal sane conversation without the filth. Who really takes you serious, tell us?


    1. Bwoy, the Promoter gyal very lucky then. She would have caught bad case of herpes from you and other opportunistic STD that you are carrying around with you. How many women have you infected Gyptian?

  27. A wah dis pon dis good good Tuesday doah?
    Gyptian a caan you a behave suh, must be a fake man. Cause if dis is really you all you do is confirm the story as to your immaturity and bad behaviour. If you need to dispute the story that is what a pr agent is for and a lawyer. You don’t come on here an act up like a child who only got a lump of coal in his stocking for Christmas.
    I sincerely hope it is an imposter because you are much too young to be building up bad karma in your career. Look around at many veterans and see how far their bad behaviour took them. Some are living on the streets or in the most impoverished of circumstances. Don’t sow seed you can’t afford to reap the harvest for.

  28. Wow ! No respect for woman! Uneducated! Can tek u out of the pig pen but can’t tek the pig out a you! Why don’t he address he’s a coke head, cause that’s a fact! Is all he can say to woman is suck u muma! What dd he cum out of?? And if he is soooo big! Why is he not a super star by now, he hangs wth killers, drug dealers murders from portmore! That’s facts! Dirty! Dirty! Scales dread

  29. No imposter a so him trace like a Girl just check his Instagram and is same so him cursing the people dem lol this boy must grew up with plenty females

    1. oh u get ketch man………….me a see your ip so why u come a set up gypitan u neva see say mi stop ansa u and a pre u ?

        1. All if a imposter that nastiness need a proper cussing. Dem love tek libbaty of promoters and don’t honor agreements, nor respect contractual obligations.

      1. Metty mi like when you bus di imposter dem. Mi did a read an ready fi jump een when mi see dis. Imposter yuh is ah big dutty shithouse and even worse dan big ole gyptian. Yuh ova yah ah trace an ah mek smady else get di heat. Yuh is ah evil low-dung slime.

  30. A how come some a de chikv mosquito dem reach roun ya? Crack/cocaine got him thinking he is famous? A betta some likkle germsy bwoy go piss and go a dem bed, caw badda dan dem dey a prison and Dovecot. Go suck yu muma bloodclaat pussyole!!!!!! Fukk u!!!!!!!!
