    The bad thing about all this is that you are cheated because de promoters doan refund yah money. There should be some kind ah agreement in contracts stating that if you curse you loose part of your money. i'm sure these artist will close their mouths then :devil

    my point...if yuh laws state no cursing...why risk all your party-goers w/ an artiste who is guaranteed to get lock up because dem is stubborn badman who think they can do whatever they want. Nuff artiste have performed w/o the issue...but look at the persona of DMX or Bounty Killa. Do dem seem like they would obey a law?

    point taken, but, as i stated before, artistes with "ghetto" images appeal to most of the youths, and so the promoters try to give them what they want,which will in turn reap financial benefits for them. im sure the promoters tell the artistes that cursing on stage is against the law, but some adhere to it will others don't; i guess some are just willing to take that risk.

    I'm sure the artistes are made aware of the local laws, and more than likely they sign with that understanding...

    What risk? The tickets sold and the promoters paid in full. Wha de promoters risking?

    You don't think the same promoters who promote shows with artists who never end up performing all of a sudden care about the patrons, do you?

    I wouldn't go so far as to say they know an artist is definitely going to curse. But it can't be a secret to anybody what the laws are -- Trinidad is not the only w.i. nation that will lock u up for this -- and like Bake said I would have to guess they are made aware of the laws beforehand.

    I'm just saying the promoters aren't exactly going to cry foul after the fact.....nor is it a majority of the time that it happens I would think. Hey sometimes sh!t happens.... *looks around for imix decency police* lol
