Mavado left thousands of fans disappointed when he failed to show up for a show in Guyana on Saturday night.

The dancehall artiste blamed the promoter of the Slingerz Family’s Caribbean Jam at the National Stadium for his absence. 

After he missed his flight on Friday, Mavado says the promoters promised to send a private aircraft to pick him up. When he got to the airport, he found a single-engine Cessna waiting for him. He says the flight - which took 19 hours on a plane with no bathroom - was like flying in a casket.

Meanwhile, promotion company Slingerz Family denies the allegations and says it has lost almost Guyanese $2million in the fiasco.
