Al Gilkes Says NOT so ‘FAS’’
Submitted by Anthony Davis
In a statement today, FAS Promotions Director Al Gilkes said Natalie was not booked by his company, but was brought on stage by SK. However, Gilkes said all performers were made aware of the profanity laws of Barbados before they went on stage.
FAS Promotions booked SK among a number of Barbadian performers for the Reggae Beach Party event. While Natalie was not contracted as a performer for the event she appeared on stage as a part of SK’s act. As a matter of course for all FAS Promotions events , all performers are advised about the profanity laws of Barbados, and the liability attached to the breach of these laws, and this was done for the beach event. FAS Promotions does not condone the breach of any of the laws of Barbados, and regrets if any patrons were offended by any of the performances on Sunday, the statement said – Barbados TODAY dated 24 April, 2017
Pray tell me, Mr. Gilkes, are you trying to absolve yourself from your duties to the populace of Barbados? You are the Director of FAS Promotions, and therefore were responsible for what went on at the beach event.
Can anyone of those who are booked for a specific event bring everyone and anyone onto the stage?
Doesn’t that person have the duty of informing you that he/she will be bringing such and such a person onto the stage as part of his her act?
Methinks that you, or one or more of your security detail should have kept track of what’s going on, instead of people being confronted with such a lewd act that they were complaining about it.
Why can’t people of this country attend a show thinking that it would be fun and wholesome, without it degenerating to such a low act?
Do you think that all our people want to see – especially when they have their young scions with them – is people wukking up on each other or such like?
I don’t think that’s the way you were taught, Mr. Gilkes!
Is your statement to show that you washed your hands of what went on at the beach event – with your security detail doing nothing about it?
The lewdness must have been very revolting, if not the populace of this country wouldn’t have been so squeamish about it!
I sincerely hope that SK isn’t billed by you to perform at any of your events in Barbados again!
It is better to offer no excuse than a bad one. – George Washington
