Guyanese superstar, Eddy Grant, has set a high demand for his participation in Carifesta X, later this month.
Kaieteur News has learnt that the Guyanese requested US$250,000 plus 15 first class tickets for his band members and one of Guyana’s high honours in order to perform during the mega-event.
Information reaching Kaieteur News also states that following his request, Grant had also stated that he can only perform on August 31.
An official within the Carifesta Secretariat told Kaieteur News last evening that Grant’s demands are ‘absurd’ and as such the secretariat cannot afford to pay for his participation in the event.
Kaieteur News was told that a letter was sent to the superstar explaining that the secretariat could not have met his requirements.
Another senior official told Kaieteur News that the Secretariat is operating on a constraint budget and as such cannot afford Grant’s request.
