    You might be right as rumours are that the UNC is trying to recruit him as a candidate for one of their seats in the next general elections whenever they call it!

    I can see him behaving this way. Just think about it....dil-e-nadan and his nemesis bunji just had the crowd eating out of his hand...now he gets on stage and he hasn't connected with the crowd.....well let's blame the equipment and act like a byatch. Nobody wants to hear any kind of excuse when they pay their money to see a show.

    SAY SORRY, MACHEL
    Organisers of Fatima Carnival fete call for apology following ‘unprofessional’ behaviour

    Organisers of Fatima College’s annual all-inclusive are calling on reigning Soca Monarch Machel Montano to apologise for his “upsetting and unprofessional” behaviour at the $950-a-ticket Carnival fete last Saturday night.

    President of the Fatima Old Boys’ Association, Dwight Andrews, told the Express yesterday that the organising committee and the principal of Fatima College, Fr Gregory Augustine, found Montano’s behaviour to be “deplorable”. He added that they were still in discussions with his management regarding some “suitable compensation”.

    He said: “We at Fatima deplore the behaviour of Mr Montano and we are pursuing discussions right now with his management, as this is not a matter that we intend to treat lightly or just leave alone.”

    Andrews added that Montano’s claim of a faulty sound system appeared to be unsubstantiated and insisted that if there was a problem, Montano did not handle it in the proper manner.

    “The sound system is the same one that was used last year when Mr Montano performed last year and it was the same sound system that all the other bands used on the night.

    His actions have the potential of damaging our brand when we are of the opinion that there was absolutely nothing wrong—and, we are further of the opinion that even if something was wrong that there is a method and a way that anybody who purports to be a professional would carry themselves and deal with such problems and that method—which we have all been taught by our elders, teachers and others— definitely wasn’t followed,” he said.

    At many of his appearances this Carnival season, Montano has complained about technical issues and was both seen and heard arguing with band members onstage several times during performances at various events. With the atmosphere ripe for his appearance at Fatima’s all inclusive on Saturday, he delivered an anti-climax of disappointment to patrons when his appearance was marred with a troubled opening sequence, the sudden removal of the “island” section of the stage that jutted into the audience and a series of unflattering remarks about the sound system, the organisers and the professionalism of the other bands on the billing.

    Montano, a multiple Road March winner, performed at the Fatima all-inclusive for the first time last year following an intervention by then-minister of sport Anil Roberts who is a past pupil of the seven-year college. He returned to the event last Saturday night for the second year and his performance was highly-anticipated to bring the event to a successful conclusion.

    His behaviour and language on stage at a fete in Tobago last month was also criticised, but he denied the incident which was reported by the Express.

    Attempts to contact the singer’s management yesterday proved futile.
