Red Rose entertainment has failed to pay the local artistes who performed as supporting acts for Capleton at his two shows on time, a direct indication that the company may have suffered hefty losses, Greedysouth has learnt. This includes over 20 local artistes plus many other service providers. Guspy Warrior, Sniper Storm, Lady Thunder and Eyarah Mathazia are some of the artistes who performed at the show. Reports by the various concerned artistes are that they were scheduled to have received their payments the first Monday after the two shows, but up to now the promise has not been fulfilled. Acording to zimpapers.co.zw, Barbra Chikosi, director of Red Rose Entertainment, however, poured water on the allegations, saying that the concerned musicians were simply cry babies. “The concerned event was a big show, so it is impossible for me to wind up everything all at once. “Everyone is going to get their money (Monday) but the only problem is that they rush and end up being cry babies,” said Chikosi. Interestingly though, the contracts which the artistes signed stipulated that they were to be paid on January 3. Chikosi, however, conceded that it was difficult for her company to pay up all at once since the turnout at the shows was poor, a development which some commentators have attributed to Winky D’s absence. Winky D pulled out of the show after some contractual disputes with Red Rose Entertainment and for that the young chanter received a backlash from various media institutions. He later cleared the air on the dispute and the various allegations that were being levelled against him in an interview with Sunday Mail. Some of the prejudiced artistes have, however, thrown stones at the National Arts Council, saying they had to regularise the amounts that international artistes are paid.
