Romeich Major has broken his silence after US media outlet bashed Dancehall singer Shenseea and dubbed her recent Florida event as a COVID-19 “Superspreader.”
Last Saturday, the “Sure Sure” singer performed at an outdoor concert in Wywood, Florida.
The sold out concert got the attention of ABC affiliate Local 10 WPLG, who reported on the concert saying, ‘Superspread event in Wynwood sign of the times as to why COVID-19 cases are rising’.
According to the media outlet, hundreds of people were packed side-by-side at the concert. The patrons were there to see Shenseea, without any obvious enforcement of COVID-19 social distancing rules.
“It is one example of why experts believe that South Florida, among other places around the country, is speeding toward an unsettling peak in coronavirus cases,” they reported.
However Romeich Major is defending his artiste saying she didn’t do anything illegal, “We are artistes, we are management, and we get book. If someone books us for a show, and we ask them if it’s okay for the show to be kept in their area and they approve it, I don’t see we’re doing anything illegal. First of all, the promoter got his permit, and a lot of police was at the venue working,” the popular artiste manager/business man said.
The Romeich Entertainment principal added that it was the promoter’s duty to ensure that the COVID-19 protocols were adhered to.
“My duty is to protect my talent, to make she go and perform for her fans, and her leave in a safe manner. Shenseea came almost at the close of the event. She performed, she walked into the venue. Went straight to the stage. Showtime started, another artiste performed, called her up and she finished performing we left the venue instantly. Wi normally come and wi do meet and greet, wi stop. At the end of the day, we get book for a show,” he added.
