Dancehall artiste, Sheldon ‘Aidonia’ Lawrence, has distanced himself from a Facebook page which he said has been collecting money from promoters and disc jockeys, under the pretence that it is being operated by members of his management team.
According to the artiste, he heard of the scam while he was working in Barbados recently.
“Please beware of ‘scammers’ robbing people money for dubs and shows on Facebook. My page is my full name and my only booking number is 1-876-412-1997,” Aidonia said.
His manager and brother, Lavarcam Lawrence, also confirmed the scam. He warned persons to be careful about conducting bookings for Aidonia through Facebook.

“We have been getting too many complaints from promoters and disc jocks that people have scammed them into giving deposits for dubs and shows and then they realise it’s not his real team they are in contact with. So I just want people to know do not do any bookings over Facebook … call 1876-412-1997 or email@example.com,” the manager said.
In the meantime Aidonia said he has been busy in the studio despite a hectic schedule.
“For 2013 I have to say that I have been the busiest. I haven’t taken a break from the studio because all when I have shows I am still recording. My new single Grip Mi was done in Martinique and we have some upcoming songs to release from there again. So is a bagga travelling and recording I am putting in the work and my fans are happy so its a good look,” the J.O.P boss said.
The artiste is also spearheading a toy and gift drive to donate to the needy. He and his J.O.P camp are gearing up to host a charity event on Dec 27 at the Grants Pen Peace Park.
To donate to J.O.P’s Charity Initiative persons can contact his publicist at firstname.lastname@example.org.
