The saga between the Queen of the Dancehall and the promoter of dancehall event Chug-It continues as Spice gathers her legal team to deal with the earlier requests of the party promoter named Andrew ‘French’ Wright.
Days ago, The legal representatives for ‘Chug it’, sent a letter of “demand” to Queen Spice, because she reportedly turned up late for her performance that was set for September 5th in Miami Florida. In the letter, Wright through his lawyer Peter Champagnie (QC) demands a full refund of every cent paid to Spice, accompanied by a “written public apology”, from Spice for what the promoter saw as defamatory statements against ‘Chug it’.
Chug It also wants Spice to remove all defamatory content that she posted about them on social media which includes labeling the event as a “Scam”.
According to Peter Champagnie, Spice was paid in full six hours before the agreed performance time, however, she still turned up at the venue “late”. The female deejay was not reported to have reached the venue until 9:25 pm and as such ‘Chug it’, is claiming that the entertainer and her booking agency Khool International acted in breach of their contract.
The no-show and social media actions by Spice, according to ‘Chug it’, caused a situation, in which Wright and his legal team are claiming to have caused patrons to return for a refund of their ticket costs due to the entertainer not showing up.
In response to Chug It, Spice’s legal team that includes Ayisha Robb in Jamaica and Darrell Thompson in the USA, sent a letter to the Jamaica Star, outlining that there will be “No refund. No apology” as requested by Chug It.
Spice’s team also outlined that no transportation was provided for her on her arrival in Miami, no security personnel nor the required hotel room was not provided for the artiste by Wright in Miami.
So far, the time of arrival and agreed performance time is the biggest dispute between both sides with either failing to agree on the time the dancehall star was slated to perform. “She was not required to perform before 9 p.m. The contract stipulated she would perform no later than 11:30 p.m. without any mention of an earlier performance time,” the release said.
The letter of demand sent to Spice has a September 15, 2021 deadline by which time to make the payment in full.
