KENYAN PROMOTER DENIES OWNING SINGER NATTY KING MONEY!

One of Jamaica’s best reggae artists Natty King took to social media in an angry rant accusing a Kenyan music promoter of being unprofessional.

The No Guns To Town hit singer, was in the country last week for a music tour, courtesy of a Kenyan reggae promoter called Chini Ya Mti Promotions.

Natty performed in Buruburu on his first show before heading to Meru for another show. But the Meru show didn’t happen.

According to the Greedy hitmaker, he wasn’t pleased by the way the promoter handled matters while he was in Kenya.

After his departure from Kenya, Natty registered his dissatisfaction by posting the rant in a video on social media.

In it, he goes ham on the promoter and calling him a number of unprintables.

He also alleges that Chini Ya Mti promoters refused to pay him, hence the reason for the no-show in Meru.

He adds that the promoter never “showed any willingness to let him know when he would receive his money, to enable him take care of some things”.

He says that he was even forced to dig into his own pockets in order to clear his hotel bills.

But Chini Ya Mti Promotions CEO only known to us as Juma, rubbishes the rants saying he upheld his side of the contract signed with the reggae singer.

“We had signed a contract and there was no way I was going against it, and I told him so,” he told Word Is on phone.

He added: “His Facebook post is just a theatric [rant] to paint us in bad light. If he is brave enough, he should show the world copies of the contract we had signed. We are a credible promotions company.”

He said that upon arrival in Meru, Natty demanded an additional 30 per cent on top of the agreed performance fees.

“Ask yourself this question; why was he promoting all this events if I had not paid him as agreed?” he asked.

“Even on the material day heading to the aborted Meru show, he was promoting the event on his social media pages. There was no way he [can then] come to me in an ambush style, and demand I add him money. That’s not how business is done. Actually, he owes me money for breaching the contract,” he said.

Juma also distanced himself with the premature Turbulence concert which also faced similar controversies last year.

He said, “I did not bring Turbulence. That was handled by another promoter. We just handled some logistics and we got paid for the services rendered.”
