Reggae artiste Fantan Mojah has been kicked off the Sting line-up for this year. Downsound Records (DSR) producer Skatta Burrell confirmed to The WEEKEND STAR that an executive decision was made by CEO Jo Bogdanovich to drop him from the line-up.

Rumours had been circulating that Fantan Mojah had disrespected Bogdanovich at the Sting launch on Wednesday night. Fantan has however, denied these allegations.

"I was invited to the Sting launch and just as I was about to begin my songs I said "Big up Downsound Records and big up Joe Bogdanovich, a unuh buss me to Jamaica and the world. A mi a di biggest ting buss from Downsound Records from that time till dis time." Mi never even get fi finish mi speech, but mi never say nutten wrong," he told The WEEKEND STAR.

On the other hand, Skatta stated that what Fantan Mojah said was not only disrespectful to Bogdanovich but also to the other artistes who are signed to the company.


"DSR invested in Fantan Mojah's career. They took a chance and made his career what it is today. Regardless of what happened, DSR has never tried to stop Fantan Mojah from making a living for himself. On numerous occasions he has been saying ill things about the company and we have ignored it because we realise that he is a mouthpiece and maybe he is emotionally hurt that he is no longer a part of this company," he stated.

Skatta also stated that DSR will not tolerate disrespect and that Fantan Mojah is a true example of being ungrateful and bitter.

"If Fantan Mojah was paid a deposit then he can keep it. We wish him all the best but anything DSR is a part of, Fantan Mojah cannot be a part of. Fans can check out DSR members Nature, Specialist and Ishawna at Sting," he said.

Fantan Mojah is however, undeterred by all the negativity.

"Dem never pay me no deposit. Dem never give me a cent, so if dem take me off the show it nuh make no difference. Mi a go continue do good songs. Mi nuh have nutten 'gainst them. A dem buss me to the world but a me buss dem to. A me buss dem mek Jamaica know say a company name so. Nuff love to DSR, nuff love to Joe and nuff love to Skatta whe a fight me round deh wid him negative self."
