Dancehall star Mavado took to social media to call out his former manager Julian Jones-Griffith for allegedly ripping off and scamming promoters by taking deposits for shows that the “Up Like 7” deejay was never informed about.
Mavado claimed to have parted way with Jones-Griffith.
“It’s past due for my promoters to get back their money now how you say you a money man and for over two years you have the people them money that you take for shows that I have no idea about,” Mavado wrote on his Instagram page.
The Dancehall hitmaker went on to post his former manager’s personal phone number and accused him of being a thief, before deleting the post.
For 2016, the “Caribbean Girls” deejay is preparing to drop some new songs along with the possibility of a new album, according to sources close to Mavado.
“Mavado is one of Dancehall’s most fortunate artiste and he is making use of it. The Gully Gaad is preparing drop a new project very soon in 2016, featuring some well-known stars and I must emphasize tht his fans are going to love his new songs,” an insider told Hype Life Magazine.
Without giving details, he said they may be part of an album he plans to release in 2016. It would be his first since 2009’s “Mr. Brooks…A Better Tomorrow.”
Through that connection, he has done several collaborations with Jay-Z, Akon and Busta Rhymes, strengthening his base in the Hip Hop market.
Best known for songs like “Weh Dem A Do,” “On The Rock” and “Delilah,” Mavado has spent much of the past five years working with a number of hip hop and neo-soul acts such as Snoop Dogg, Jay Z, Ludacris and Akon.
