Reggae/dancehall artiste QQ has been again added to the line-up of the Young and In Charge concert, featuring platinum-selling boy band, Mindless Behavior.
The development follows reports from the organisers earlier this week, which said that the One Drop singer was axed from the show after disagreements between themselves and QQ's manager and father, GQ.
In a press release sent to The Gleaner, the organisers of the much-talked-about concert had expressed regret that the artiste would not be a part of the show. They also promised that other local acts like Tifa, Jah Bouks, Natel, Denyque, Shanhill and Angele Smith would make up for QQ's absence.
GQ later explained that QQ was not given a confirmation contract, which means he was not confirmed to appear at the show, and refuted allegations that the spat was over money.
In a dramatic turn of events, American entertainment consultant and promoter of the concert, Jason Newman, says he and QQ's team have arrived at a mutual agreement, and the artiste is all set to perform at Liguanea Club on Saturday.
"The promoters of Young and in Charge are pleased to confirm that the misunderstanding with QQ's manager has been resolved," he said.
GQ also expressed satisfaction with the new developments.
Several new sponsors have also joined the production, which now includes D&G Soft Drinks, Digicel, KIA Motors, Fame 95 FM, Zip 103FM, MDTV, CES, Fly Jamaica Airways and Complete Entertainment Services.
