Dancehall sensation Gully Bop is not pleased with some promoters based in Europe, following his recent tour.
In a recent interview, the Jamaican deejay maintained that he haven’t received the proper payment for several shows and may never return to Europe on tour.
The “Every Gal Want A Wuk Off A Mi” deejay says that he didn’t perform in Germany (because he collected no money) despite headlines that he was flopped.
“People in Germany are saying Gully flop because promoters keep show and tickets are not selling so he said that he want when I come to the next show in Germany somebody should put ganja in my pocket so that police arrest me and so that I can’t get to come to his show,” Bop explained to YLTV.

Gully Bop also stated he did five shows in Europe but the money was “wrong.”
“I didn’t flop because I didn’t collect any money to do any show. I did five shows in Europe and everyone of the shows that I did the promoters complain that they didn’t make any money and want to give you some little crumbs money. I love Europe but I ain’t coming back,” Gully Bop added.
In August, Gully Bop released a video via social media, accusing his former booking agent of robbing him.
“If me follow Heavy D, me end up back inna the gully. Me nuh want him or Nuffy near me. Them man deh a rob me. Same way them mash dung Tommy Lee (Sparta), a same way them want mash me dung,” Gully Bop stated.
However, in a release sent to media reporters, Heavy D countered the claims, stating that Gully Bop was out of control and almost impossible to work with.
He also said he would no longer be working with Gully Bop.
“He does not want any agent fees or expenses to be deducted from income received. Sometimes I feel like we have another Whitney Houston case on our hands. Bop needs rehab and this is no joke,” the statement from Heavy D read.
The girlfriend and manager of the artiste, Shauna Chin, however, vehemently denied these claims.
She insisted that these allegations were only said to damage Gully Bop’s career.
“I am Bop’s rehab. He has no drug problem. They want people to think he is a coke head, and that’s not true. They are only trying to take the heat off themselves. This can affect his visa, damage his career, etc.. It’s a lie and it hurt me really bad. Bop knows the type of person I am, he knows I don’t condone those things. He doesn’t wanna lose me, so he would not do that,” she told reporters.
According to Chin, Heavy D does not want them to see the contracts regarding the shows and that is where the problem lies.
“If me and Gully Bop nuh get mad pon them, we nuh see the contracts. So we have trust issues with him. It’s almost as if they want to do their own thing and we must just accept it. Recently, a promoter told Gully Bop a figure that he had paid to book him and that was not the figure that Heavy D told us. We have even heard that they are overcharging for his dub plates,” she said.
With Heavy D no longer handling his bookings, Chin stated that she will now step up to the plate.
“I have not seen any contracts for any of the upcoming shows, so I need to get those. Heavy D has paid me some deposit, but I haven’t seen the contracts to see what is what. I don’t have anything against them. I wish them all the best. Do good and good will follow, but do bad and crosses will tek you,” Chin said in reference to Heavy D.
