DANCEHALL singjay Mavado was a no-show at a Guyana gig on Sunday.

According to Stabroek News, Mavado — whose given named is David Brooks — was booked to perform at Slingerz Summer Jam held at the country’s national stadium in Providence.


The 31-year-old artiste, however, opted to stay in at the Princess Hotel in disgust of his bumbled transportation arrangements.

According to the article, the Weh Dem a Do singer — who is no stranger to Guyana stages — said the promoter had promised to send a jet. Instead, he and his 16-man team were crammed in a tiny plane which was forced to make several refuelling stops. The flight departed at 7:00 am.

On reaching Guyana’s Ogle International Airport, the plane was diverted to Trinidad as a permission for landing was never secured. The plane was eventually cleared to land around 10:00 pm on Sunday.

Mavado rose to prominence in 2005 with Real McKoy. His other hit recordings include Dying, So Special, On the Rock, and Star Boy.

Efforts made to contact Mavado’s manager, Julian Jones-Griffiths, for comment were unsuccessful.
