Singer Jay Sean sent out a public apology via twitter to his Sri Lankan fans after he drew criticism for arriving late on stage and also for failing to turn up for the after party during his recent Sri Lankan tour.
The singer had reportedly come out to sing over three hours after his scheduled appearance during the concert in Colombo but the singer said it wasn’t his fault.
Jay Sean had also not turned up for the after-party held at Club Mojo at the Taj Hotel in Colombo.
“Sri Lanka u were amazing! Had such a great time..sorry for the delay in comin out..like shaggy said “it wasn’t me!” killed it still! Madluv,” he said in a tweet.
In a follow-up tweet Jay Sean said he was sick of promoters giving artists a bad name adding that no matter what happens though, it always falls back on the singer when people don’t even know their facts.
“In the meantime shoutout to those promoters who always DO do it right. That’s why we stick with u! Professionals,” he added.
Jay Sean, is a British singer-songwriter, rapper, beatboxer and record producer. He debuted in the UK’s Asian Underground scene as a member of the Rishi Rich Project with “Dance with You”, which reached #12 on the UK Singles Chart in 2003.
This led to him being signed to Virgin Records and having two UK top 10 hits as a solo artist in 2004: “Eyes On You” at #6 and “Stolen” at #4. They were included in his critically acclaimed debut album Me Against Myself which, though only moderately successful in the UK, sold more than two million copies across Asia and remains his most successful album to date.
Alongside the Rishi Rich Project, Sean was a pioneer of Bhangra-R&B fusion, which his debut album helped popularize among the worldwide South Asian diaspora. (The Hub.Asia)
