Internationally acclaimed dancehall singjay David Brooks, more popularly known as Mavado is fighting back vigorously after reports emerged days ago regarding his visa status as well as his label situation.
Several reports emerged earlier last week that the Gully Boss had been dropped from a concert scheduled to take place later this month at the Guvernment Entertainment Complex (Kool Haus) in Toronto, Canada after failing to secure a work permit to enter the country.
Additionally, a popular Canadian based entertainment publication, issued a statement which in part revealed that Mavado was being dropped from the Cash Money Records (YMCMB) umbrella just two weeks after joining the group as a result of his label, We The Best Music Group joining forces with the New Orleans based hip-hop establishment.
The magazine even reported than an international arrest warrant was out for Mavado due to the deejay allegedly assaulting an officer.
On Thursday, Mavado responded sternly to the claims, reportedly filing several defamation, libel and loss of earnings suits claiming millions of dollars of damages against the Magazine’s editor-in-chief, and co-defendant in Toronto Civil Court. In the suits, Mavado alleges that both parties disseminated inaccurate information via Blackberry Broadcast and blog posts.
Furthermore, We The Best Music Group CEO, DJ Khaled as well as Cash Money Records co-founders, Ronald ‘Slim Williams and Brian ‘Birdman’ Williams are drawing up similar suits.
All this news comes just over a week after Mavado was found guilty in an assault case in St. James. The prominent singjay plans to appeal said verdict.
