Reggae legend Toots is suing his former manager Marc-Antoine Chetata for allegedly misleading him into signing shady business agreement.

  1. don’t sign without a good lawyer.

  2. Wow that’s pure robbery at its form man Cheetah grimey theft, a manger doesn’t supposed to get more than 10-15% maybe 20% if that manager that good and guarnteed to get the artists deals, but never in history does a manger has the right to even try doing such thing.

    Now if he owns a company that does Publishing, Record Music lablel. and explain perfectly in the contract of a Co-Publishing deal where its a 50-50% split of song onwership, and or a music record deal contract where its state that its a joint venture 50-50% I can understand that and would see that this reggae music legend Mr. Toot wouldn’t have a case but if that’s not the case and this goes to trial court and found out that Chettah manager of his, nothing but just a manager hes done finish in business and needs to pay more than what Mr.Toot is asking for dealry, because that’s taken advantage of teh artist that doesn’t really know the business.
