    LIVE:Unprofessional behaviour of REGGAE Artistes chases major record Lables

    in Music

    No pay, no game - Unprofessional behaviour of artistes chases away major record labels.The '70s,'80s and early '90s were the glory days of Jamaican music, with several of the island's artistes inking record deals with esteemed and internationally acclaimed recording labels, including Island Records, CBS Records, Colombia Records, EMI, Rolling Stones Records, among others. Fast-forward to 2015, one can't help but wonder, where have all the major labels gone?


    Veteran entertainment manager Copeland Forbes believes major labels severed ties with Jamaican artistes because of unprofessionalism and a lack of vision. The effect of the anti-Jamaican music campaign led by the homosexual community was also brought under the microscope.


    According to the man who has represented icons like Beres Hammond, Gregory Isaacs, The Wailers, Peter Tosh, Ziggy Marley, Sugar Minott, among others, during his career, Jamaican artistes need to be taught proper business ethics and attitude. He also credited Shaggy's success to his ability to make good business decisions.


    "Some of these artistes, if you tell them to go overseas to do some promotions, if dem nah get paid, dem nah guh. Mi see me and Shaggy just reach New York from Japan on a 15-hour flight and he received a call saying his song just took off in England and they needed him to make an appearance. The same night,  Shaggy took a flight to England and it was free because it's promotion. But some of these artistes won't do that. Dem a guh tell yu sey dem have to go home to eat, and do this and that. So the major labels are there to help us, but we must pull our weight too," he said
