Clifton Brown

Cliff-Twang faces new lawsuit for allegedly issuing bounced cheques

Clifton BrownLegal problems continue to mount for Jamaican YouTube sensation, Clifton ‘Cliff-Twang’ Brown as the one-time deejay now faces a lawsuit claiming he bounced several cheques at a gas station last year.

The allegations stem from instances where Brown allegedly issued three bounced cheques to a Corporate Area gas station for gas, amongst other items. The St. Thomas native was told he had insufficient funds in his account after sending said cheques. The lawsuit was reportedly filed in the Sutton Street Resident Magistrates Court after Brown failed to pay the money owed once notified of the issue and now is being sued for JA$56,000.

He faces a Valentine’s Day (February 14) court hearing in the matter.

This is the second time in just over a week a legal issue involving Cliff-Twang has been publicized. Last week Tuesday it was reported that he was jailed in December for failing to pay child maintenance after turning down a bail offer of JA$80,000.

Brown repeatedly appeared in Kingston’s Family Court after his baby’s mother accused him of being behind in child support payments. He finally received bail this past Thursday and will re-appear in the Family Court next month in that case.

After a remix of a Prime Time News video appeared on YouTube in the summer of 2011, Brown rose to prominence for his ‘twanging’ and popular catch phrase, ‘Nobody Canna Cross It,’ when describing flooding at the Mavis Bank Bridge in his native parish. The DJ Powa produced video copped millions of views and made several television appearances and scored an endorsement deal with local telecommunications giant, LIME for his efforts.

BUSY SIGNAL STARS IN “ROYAL NIGHT”

Busy Signal is an artiste on a mission to take over 2013 with his infectious lyrics and musical style. Busy recently shot the video to the third single from his  VP Records released album, “Reggae Music Again” album entitled “Royal Night”.

 

Directed by the talented Dameon Gayle of Warrior Musick Production, all scenes were shot at the charming Alahambre Inn in Mountain View.

Not wanting to give too much of the concept away, Busy said “it’s a true to life drama and when released,  viewers need to watch the video right to the end to get the twist.”

 

“Royal Night” is a joint production of Shane Brown’s Juke Boxx Productions label and Donovan Germain’s Penthouse Records.

 

“Reggae Music Again” was released last year before Busy Signal’s incarceration and shot up the international charts even while the artiste was absent. It was named reggae album of the year in Kenya, Uganda and Portugal and it made the list of one of the BBC’s top ten albums for that year. In Germany, Busy was listed as Reggae Artiste of the Year.

 

With the continued success of the album, all plans are being put into place for the 2013 Reggae Music Again tour. With performances in the Caribbean, Germany, France, Scandanavia, Spain, Dubai and Africa, this tour will have the reggae dancehall superstar living up to his name.

 

“I cant wait to get back on tour and show my love and appreciation for my fans and the support they gave and continue to give to this album” stated Busy.

Wailer also chastized Snoop of ‘outright fraudulent use of Rastafari Community’s personalities and symbolism,’ while the Rasta Council, which he heads, released a statement saying in part, “Smoking weed and loving Bob Marley and Reggae music is not what defines the Rastafari indigenous culture!”
