Popular radio DJ and promoter Jabba says Dexta Daps is banned from Best of The Best for life.

A seemingly hurt Jabba also said he would not be lending his support to Dexta Daps.

Jabba and Dexta Daps have been at odds since the last staging of Best of The Best, after the artiste refused to perform during his allotted time, claiming that he was owed US$1,000 for travelling expense for a previous event. He also wanted 10 extra tickets.

Dexta Daps' decision later caused the show to run late and resulted in Mavado missing his set as the plug was pulled by law enforcement officers.

Jabba, who faced a barrage of complaints from disgruntled patrons, has decided to take stern action against the artiste.


The truth


"I don't give out money at the hotel, I do that at the venue. Why didn't his manager come to the venue? I will never book him for another event, never ever. He could be the hottest artiste in America. A nuff things mi help dem youth deh with and dem ungrateful ... I don't want to see them, and they need to reach out to the fans and tell them the truth," he said.

Jabba, who has been a staple on US radio for over two decades, says he will not be suing Dexta Daps. He called the Shabba Madda Pot singer a diva.

"This is bigger than a breach of contract. Mi nah pay no lawyer, I don't have the time. I just want the fans to know that if this man wasn't being a diva, this would not have happened," he said.


Certain behaviour


Jabba also blamed artistes for the decline of live shows in Jamaica.

"Best of The Best is the only hardcore dancehall show in the US. So the same way certain behaviour killed stage shows in Jamaica, don't bring it over here. I cannot support who don't support me. How yu fi try kill me and me support you? I play on some of the biggest radio stations in the world and hold up reggae music. How can you disrespect a man like me," he said.

Jabba also said the incident made him contemplate cancelling next year's staging of the show. However, Best of The Best 2018 is still on.

"Who God bless, no man curse. To the fans, I apologise. It is neither mine nor Mavado's fault. I owed this man no money. I flew him in, provided transport, and fed him. So what US$1,000 for transport could he be speaking about?" he said.
