New Generation Entertainment, organizers of the Wet Fete Luau Edition, will be issuing a statement to media on the recently concluded event.

That statement will include information on the electric shocking incidents which occurred during the fete and the controversial pull-out of some artistes from the Sunday, June 30 affair, according to Kurt Elibox, one of the directors of the entertainment group, as he spoke to St Lucia News Online (SNO) Tuesday.

Reports indicate that a few persons were shocked at the event with some being treated at the hospital.

To add to the controversy, entertainment company Stratosphere Muzic, in a release on Monday, accused the organizers of exhibiting a poor spirit of negotiation and said they were unprofessional.

According to the release, Ricky T and other artistes under the Stratosphere Muzic label – Ambi, Marie-Anne and Mongstar – did not perform after management of the event and artistes failed to see eye to eye on the terms of their performance.

Elibox told SNO that the release is expected to be out by later today or tomorrow morning.

  1. When the government impose a tax u all cry, but when its time to fete u all smile. Making another man rich with his big pork belly and all the beer to wash it down. We are trying to run from our realities but sorry its at our front door. So what u gonna do bout it?

  2. If a foreigner got "shocked" as they say; we would see if the Organisers of this event would have been able to remain silent for sooo long. Have some respect for LUCIANS!!! Your silence is unacceptable!!!

    Remember a Hotel in the SOUTH got closed down by the Ministry for failure to comply with electrical safety measures. And its management is currently in Court with the relatives of the deceased from the UK! Wake up people....this is serious!

  3. When people are at the foot of the ladder they tend to kiss some serious a**. But when they begin to rise the place becomes to small and the very persons who gave them a hand to climb they don't give two F***s about them any more, all they seek is their very own interest.... THE MORE THEY HAVE THE MORE THEY WANT.... THEY WON"T GIVE TWO CENTS EXTRA TO MAKE THE WORLD GO ROUND!!! Well bro, you are about to pay for your GREED and I Hope you learn from this.... The victims should come together and take this issue SERIOUSLY!!!

  4. Ofc its all about the money. I mean.. Who organise an event to not make a profit? I'm sorry for the people that got shocked but they were there at their own risk. Are people so ignorant that they don't know water and electricity don't mix. And stop asking why the Damn show didn't end.. Ask why the dumb people didn't leave after it happened. lucians... Jah
