Kingston, Jamaica: - Rising Dancehall artiste, Kalado is one of the latest victims of a slick scam which has resulted in false advertising, loss of revenue for the deejay, and has proven to be a promotional nightmare. These deeds, his management says, are facilitated by the setting up of fake Facebook pages in Kalado’s name by persons who are not authorized to do so and who have ulterior motives.
According to his management company, Montrevail Agencies, persons have been impersonating Kalado on social media, while others have been posing as his booking agent and confirming dates and collecting money from unsuspecting promoters.
“The creators of these fake Facebook pages are very slick and quite often the pages appear to be authentic, which makes it even worse for us. They have been misleading persons who are interested in working with Kalado and also his fans. One young lady was able to scam a promoter out of $80,000 and could have caused untold damage to the artiste’s reputation because he was being advertised for a show that we knew nothing about,” Kalado’s manager, Nancy Davis, explained.
According to Ms. Davis, requests have been sent to Facebook to have the pages shut down, “but as soon as one goes down another comes up”. She emphasized that Montrevail Agencies is the only authorized booking agency for Kalado.
“Our numbers are 876-365-2116 and 514-375-0388 and we can be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org,” also the official website for Kalado is www.officialkalado.com and Officialkalado for Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. she stated.
Meanwhile, Kalado is busy on the promotional trail with his DreDay-produced single, “Love the Life You Live” which shows the versatility of the artiste and is sure to help him end the year 2014 on a high note. The thought-provoking single and the just-released music video have made a solid impression on not just the dancehall, but the entire music-loving public and for this, Kalado and his team, say: Mission Accomplished.
Parts of the video were filmed in Zimbabwe, Africa, against a backdrop that is simply breathtaking. Adjectives such as “awesome” and “fantastic” have been used to describe the video, which had its official Jamaica premiere last weekend. Other shoot locations include Canada and Jamaica, making this music video a truly multi-national project.
“The message is that we all should make every effort to love the life we live, wherever in the world we happen to be. Thanks to everyone who made this possible and there’s a lot more where this is coming from,” a grateful Kalado said.
