“ALL OF SUGAR MINOTT’S PROJECTS ON HOLD,” SAYS HIS WIDOW!

By Cecelia Campbell-Livingston—-

WHEN he died in July 2010, singer Sugar Minott left a massive catalogue, but because he did not leave a will, distributing his music has been a challenge.

His widow, Maxine Stowe, says plans for any Sugar Minott projects are on hold as his estate is managed by the Administrator General.

According to Stowe, there are many legal issues to be resolved before the matter of royalties to beneficiaries — which include herself and his children — are settled.

Stowe says royalties continue to come in from existing contracts that were in place before his death. But she is concerned about the plethora of bootleg copies on the market.

“In Sugar’s case his business wasn’t structured properly. There is a lot of piracy as he had a lot of informal and gentleman’s agreements,” Stowe told Splash.

She added that getting compensation for these works require considerable financial resources.
