Former Dancehall artiste Lady Saw has begun returning promoters who had contracted her to perform prior to her conversion to Christianity.
Following her resolution to become a Christian, Saw, whose real name is Marion Hall, also announced that she would be ceasing her performances as a Dancehall artiste, Hype Life Magazine has learned.
Dubbed the Queen of Dancehall, she has begun reimbursing a number of promoters since her conversion more than a week ago, according to the artiste.
“I have spoken, every promoter that I was supposed to work with in the future and started the process to repay them,” explained Saw to the media.
“I have been doing transfers daily to promoters, but I haven’t been able to repay everyone yet because there is a limit to the sum that I can use daily,” she added.
Event promoter Jermaine Blake, who had been considering legal action against Hall because she had not contacted him initially since her conversion, informed the media that he and the former dancehall entertainer had reached a settlement.
“We have spoken and she had agreed to repay both the deposit and promotional cost so we are good now,” stated Blake.
In a previous interview, the promoter had mentioned he paid over $300,000 for promotions along with the deposit paid to Hall for his St Thomas present, Rumbar Glow, however he had not been contacted by the deejay since her baptism.
The promoter of Yush, Phillip Palmer, which Saw was set to perform on tomorrow, informed the media that they’re trusting the former deejay to maintain her word that she will be repaying the deposit that they had paid.
“She has promised to refund all deposits. We have not gotten the money back as yet, but we are holding on to her word in good faith.”
The 43-year-old veteran Dancehall icon stated she’s going to be able to complete the process of reimbursement in brief order.
“I am just working on finishing this as soon as possible so I can focus fully on being a servant of the Lord, and the promoters have been very understanding so far,” mentioned Saw.
