Busy Signal found himself behind bars in Trinidad over the weekend.
The dancehall hitmaker was picked up by T&T cops at his hotel shortly after arriving in the island for a performance at Together As One concert.
His arrest stemmed from a 2013 concert that he was booked for and paid US$37,088 but couldn’t performed. According to reports, Busy Signal and the promoter Peppers Entertainment agreed that they would deduct the fee from a future performance, but that did not happen.
The promoter filed legal documents stating that the deejay did not honor the agreement. A warrant was issued for his arrest and he was hauled before the courts.
Busy Signal, whose real name is Reanno Gordon, was released after he agreed to pay US$15,000 and the balance in 30 days.
Signal spent 6 months in prison in the United States in 2012 following an outstanding case in that country dated back 10 years.
