After opening the first major platform to Gully Bop at Sting 2014 in an effort to solidify the viral sensation as a true recording artiste and performer, Heavy-D Promotions has severed all ties.
Artiste Confused Over 20% Management and Booking Fees
“We collect only 20% as agreed for bookings and management. We collect 20% of the deposit and 20% of the balance, which makes it 20% of the entire amount. Bop believes we are charging 20 plus 20 to equal 40% of the total amount this is not so. He got angry in Canada as a result of not understanding and took off,” Heavy-D says.
According to Heavy-D, “Gully Bop is out of control and is making it impossible to work with. He is not listening to me, Chin or anybody else. He does not want any agent fees or expenses to be deducted from income received. Bop doesn’t understand the business at all and believes that whatever he makes is for him, his woman and to give away to poor people in the street. How the bills are gonna be paid then? There are expenses for every tour!”
Heavy-D continued to explain that he has to be working overtime to cover seriously damaging statements and actions by the artiste. He also recommends that he seeks professional help. “I wish nothing but the best for Bop. I try my best to help him and resolve all issues, but it seems to make no sense. Sometimes I feel like we have another Whitney Houston case on our hands. Bop needs rehab and this is no joke. I have my lawyer and accountant working out all unfinished business at this point.”
Heavy-D Promotions would like to assure all promoters and the public that all engagements booked should be honored as all deposits have already been paid over to his fiancée`, Miss Shauna Chin.
“Every show we book we take our agent fees and pay over the balance to Chin so all shows should be still on. She is also in a very sticky position, but I understand that she have to stand beside him cause they live together right now. He must cease and desist from making all damaging remarks as legal action will be taken”
