Just over a week after being after a week after being found guilty in a recent assault case, prominent Dancehall singjay,Mavado may be feeling the ramifications of said verdict.
According to several media reports, the Alliance deejay will not be able to perform at concerts scheduled to take place on May 18 (Hamilton) and May 25 at the Guvernment Entertainment Complex(Kool Haus) in Toronto, Canada. This, after Mavado failed in his attempt to secure a valid work permit through the Canadian High Commission in Kingston.
Fellow internationally acclaimed singjay, Mr. Vegas has reportedly been touted as Mavado’s replacement at the event. However, Vegas told one876entertainment.com that he has not gotten a financial commitment from concert promoters, though admitting that they’re in talks.
Meanwhile, L3 Magazine is reporting that Mavado has been dropped from Cash Money Records (YMCMB), with whom he recently became a part of after DJ Khaled’s We The Best Music Group recently merged with the New Orleans based label. According to the publication, a credible source has confirmed that Mavado will no longer be a part of the group.
With regards to his inability to travel to Canada, a statement addressing the matter was expected by Mavado but has not yet been issued at this time. He’s also expected to address upcoming tour dates and whether or not he’ll be able to meet contractual obligations for future events.
Mavado’s due to perform at this year’s Best of the Bestconcert, scheduled for Memorial Day Weekend (May 27) at BiCentennial Park in Miami, Florida.
