So I want to make this very clear Bunji Garlin fired mebecause I had enough of Fay
 Ann dropped her from mymanagement, we stopped talking and he felt he had tochoose
As some of you may know by now, there was a press conference that was held by Bunji Garlin and Fay-Ann at Capital Plaza Port of Spainyesterday, Thursday October 3
2013. Where by Fay-Ann made anumber of disparaging remarks related to my dismissal and terminationof my management contract with Bunji Garlin, whom I have managedfor over fifteen years.And though I have kept silent since my dismissal, her latest attempt toassassinate my character and cause me harm in an industry that I haveearned my living for so long and where I will have to continue to do soafter all this hullabaloo ends, I thought it best that I say my peace beforeit 
s all to late for me.You may not know this, but a gentleman named Daryl Braxton andmyself founded the band as a marketing strategy
to assist in Bunji’s
growth as an artist because back then he was not a household name yet.Neither was he in a financial position or had the management acumen tofoster his career. Asylum or the then named Censation band, in thoseearly years were simply earning nothing.So for Fay-Ann to imply that since 1999 I was acting spuriously issimply untruthful and remember as she rightly said, she only joined theband in 2009. As a matter of fact, allot that was said by her at theconference is filled with hot air, lies and half-truths. Two years ago Fay-Ann threw a party in my honor to recognize my hard work anddedication and tireless commitment for getting Asylum to be part of,and one of, the most elite Soca bands worldwide. There were noquestions then over my management deeds and now suddenly thereare?Though I would have preferred not to get into a he say she say battlewith Fay-Ann its tough not to when she implies questionableaccounting, no bank account and non payment to band members fromreceipt of deposits. I have a personal management agreement with Bunji
Garlin; the proceeds from all contracts are held in trust for which he is asignatory to. The band members are always paid for their contractualengagements, on a timely basis
“ask them”
. Other band expenses arethen deducted, I am paid a commission and the rest of monies are
handed to him for their care and that’s a very tidy
sum. He is submittedmonthly, quarterly and seasonal reports or as when requested fromtime to time.I wrote Bunji Garlin 2 weeks ago asking him to meet with me so that wecould work through a number of outstanding matters including thosefunds that are held in trust, he replied verbally that he would think about it. I have not heard from him since. The remaining funds in trust does not cover the outstanding debts that are due to the band creditorsso there is a net deficit which unfortunately I am once again financinglike I have al
ways done in the band’s time of 
need.So this brings me to the question that most of you may have and that iswhy was I fired? Why does she have this personal vendetta to tarnishmy good name and character, which I have had for all of my life in thisindustry and others.A few moths ago I quietly dropped Fay-Ann from my management. I didso because she attempted to (1) renegotiate my income downward (2)there was a major difference in philosophy and (3) we had a breakdownin communication. This all suspiciously occurred just as I was successfulin negotiating on behalf of Bunji Garlin 2 record label dealsinternationally, one in Europe and the other for the rest of the world. Iwould have earned a sizable income for that, not to mention,endorsements and international touring.Approximately one month ago I received a telephone call from BunjiGarlin asking me to reignite my relationship with Fay-Ann and Ideclined. He told me there and then in that case, my services were nolonger required and that he was terminating my tenure effectiveimmediately. Please note that my management agreement with himends February 28
2014. And therefore my termination was premature.
