Reggae artiste Romain Virgo is now parting ways with his co-manager Shane Brown after less than a year of partnership.
Virgo told THE STAR that there were no bad vibes between the two, but that he wanted to move forward with his own company.
“Myself, Shane Brown and my original manager Darwin Brown came together and everybody decided that this is the next step that we should take. A nuh nutten whe have no bad vibes,” Virgo said.
He added that this will take affect as of January 1, 2014 as he and his team are in the process of opening an office.
“We are forming our own company called Vikings Productions. Vikings Productions will be my record label, management team and my booking agent as well. We will still work alongside other booking agents like Headline Entertainment also,” he said.
Virgo stressed that while they would also take shows from Juke Boxx Productions, which is owned by Shane Brown, his official booking agent will be Vikings Productions.
“Shane Brown is no longer co-managing my career, but we still work together musically. There is no bad vibes between me and him. It is still important for us to keep the production part of it regardless of what happened. Tarrus Riley deh deh same way but in terms of management – that will be Vikings Productions. No other name will be attached to me but them,” Virgo said.
When contacted, Brown confirmed that there was no bad blood between the two.
“Juke Boxx had an agreement to assist Vikings Productions. That agreement is coming to an end and they will now be taking full control of Romain’s career as of January 1. I will still be producing and helping out Romain in whatever way I can. I wish more partnerships can work out like this without any animosity,” Brown said.
