Will dancehall deejay Assassin accept the apology from Red Stripe after they pulled him off stage at their Red Stripe Live Show last Saturday?

Well, Red Stripe has since issued an apology to Assassin for the premature end to his performance. 

The release further states that Red Stripe is grateful that Assassin supported its first live event to raise funds for its learning for life initiative and sincerely regrets that his performance was cut short. 

Nevertheless, when Music News contacted Assassin’s management, Donovan Germaine said the deejay will not comment on the issue at this time.

Music News reported this week that Assassin was disgruntled after Red Stripe ended his performance prematurely for a line in his single Pre This during his performance at Sabina Park.

The “versatile” deejay explained that the representatives from Red Stripe were given a copy of the song and that they were also present during rehearsals where he did the said song in its entirety.

The station officially went on air on August 1, 1990. Reggae in the morning, Reggae in the evening, Reggae in the night was the cry. Critics said it was impossible to sustain a 24-hour Reggae music station. In fact, so strong was the impact, it proved that this format was something the Jamaican public yearned for. The 'little station that could' got all media houses in Jamaica to stand up and take note.
