Dalla Hits Shyne with $10k for Talent Fee and Logistics

Kareem Musa

Aside from the hefty thirty thousand dollar judgment which DJ Dalla is trying to recoup from Shyne, he is also charging ten thousand dollars for his services.  Those services include logistical support, as well as a talent fee for hosting the Music Week event.  Musa breaks down that arrangement.

“So the large matter is the settlement of the monies owed to the consignment and I’m assuming that the talent fee, so to speak, for DJ Dalla is considerably smaller?”


Kareem Musa, Attorney

“It is smaller than the thirty thousand dollars, but there are a lot of offshoots, a lot of damages that occurred subsequent to that, including some loss of other sponsors due to this incident.  So, like I said, I don’t want to delve too much into that but there are subsequent damages that flowed from that one incident. As a promoter, as you know, promoting an event is more than just emceeing an event, it’s months and months of preparation, advertising, logistics, sorting out the tents, the sound systems, everything like that and so there’s a lot that goes into it behind the scenes.  So it’s not just one night of emceeing, it’s a lot that goes into that fee.  But you are right, that is the sum that they agreed upon and as parties, you can agree on any sum what your fee is and Mr. Barrow had agreed to that sum. The payments that are going to be made to Belize Brewing Company will come up in February, next month, so we will arrange with that.  But like I said, he will, according to the negotiations that are currently taking place, Shyne Barrow, et al., I don’t know who they are, will be taking on those payments to Belize Brewing Company in the form of monthly installments I am aware.”
