Dancehall artiste Potential Kidd is hopping mad that his name is being dragged through the mud by a promoter because he missed a show in New York last week because his work permit was still being processed. He said that he did not receive a deposit for the show, therefore he cannot refund a deposit, and furthermore, he is "not broke" as a release by his manager Angeletta McKenzie suggested recently.  


In the meantime, Kidd's booking agent, Theresa Small also denied allegations that she pocketed the funds for the July 7th concert missed by Kidd, saying that all monies associated with the event were paid over to Angeletta McKenzie who was acting as Potential Kidd's manager at the time. 
"This is causing me a lot of stress and pain. All monies were paid over to Angeletta and she is giving people the impression that I have the money and that is not true. She got every cent for Potential Kidd but now Kidd himself is telling me that  he never got any money from her. I am in contact with my lawyer Ron Young, and anyone making any frivolous statements against my name will be sued for defamation of character," Theresa Small told one876entertainment.com 


A release making the rounds today suggested that the promoter of the event Dwayne Grant took a loss for his event, and although he is left bitter, says he just wants some answers and his money back. He stated;
_”The situation is that back in April, I was introduced to Potential Kidd Management & booking. Theresa Small of Terri Booking Agency said they were the booking agency for the artiste Dwayne Taylor aka Potential Kidd. I spoke to Theresa and she told me nothing is guarantee until a deposit is made and quoted a fee of $3700USD to book the artiste."
"On the 27th of April I sent $1850usd via Western Union which she collected and followed up with introducing the Manager of the artiste name "Angeletta" and was informed that the deposit was paid. Weeks later I was informed that Potential Kidd will be traveling to Europe & England for several performance and at which I was assured that all documentation was in order for his performance her in the USA."
"Two months later I sent an additional $300USD for airfare as my event was July 14, 2012. Five days before the event I was told he didn't have the required travel documents nor permit to perform in the states but will be visiting the embassy. Check made by me proved other wise. 
I tried speaking with Angeletta Mckenzie & she inform me that she will try and refund my money ,and that was the last i heard. I even spoke with Theresa (Booking Representative) and she inform me that Angeletta Mckenzie receive all the money and no one can get in contact with her until this day!!!!"_
"Again after several attempts to contact Potential Kidd Manager which failed she then contacted me and said that booking agent had given the money to the artiste and he didn't know it was mine which was an ridiculous excuse. I also managed to speak with Potential Kidd who said he hasn't received any money and that his management & booking may have pocketed the money."
"Potential Kidd manager after several conversations between the parties asked me to give them time to refund the money as the artiste is broke and after all this she will be quitting as his manager. Potential send me a voice note also and denies knowing anything event though he signed the contract... "
Although event promoter Dwayne Grant expressed his disappointment with the team for intentionally misrepresenting and misleading him, since Potential Kidd didn't possess the requisite documentation to travel or perform in the states. He only asks to recoup costs associated with booking the artiste be reimbursed. His attempts have proven futile thus far so he has retained a local based attorney to pursue the matter to the full extent of the law .
