Tourism Authority paid $40,000, not $75,000 for Skinny Fabulous music video, company says

Santia Bradshaw, CEO of Pyramid Entertainment Barbados, said her company only received US$15,000 for the video.

KINGSTOWN, St. Vincent — The entertainment company that produced Gamal “Skinny Fabulous” Doyle’s “Beast Let Go” video was paid US$15,000 – about EC$40,000 — not EC$75,000 as Tourism Authority Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Glen Beache said in a recent press statement.

Beache, responding to questions from Opposition Leader Arnhim Eustace about monies reportedly paid in January 2010 to a company responsible for the marketing of regional artistes, said the cost was disclosed at the launch of the initiative.

The former tourism minister said the video was sponsored as a push for carnival and to enhance the marketing of St. Vincent and the Grenadines destination with the assistance of a local artist, since “Beast Let Go” had gained immense popularity in the region.

“Really, it is the same approach used by Jamaica with the music of Bob Marley and more recently by Barbados through the use of the music of Rhianna,” Beache said.

Opposition Leader, Arnhim Eustace (L) and CEO of the Tourism Authority, Glen Beache.

Eustace, noting that the monies were paid about six weeks after the Constitution Referendum of December 2009, had said that he wanted to know whether the EC$75,000 was in fact paid, what it was for, and who received it.

However, Santia Bradshaw, CEO of Pyramid Entertainment Barbados, the firm that produced the video, said in a press statement on Wednesday that the Tourism Authority gave her company US$15,000 to produce the video.

She said that in November 2009, initial discussions began between Pyramid Entertainment and the Ministry of Tourism on behalf of Skinny Fabulous, seeking financial assistance for the production costs associated with a music video.

A proposal was submitted in December 2009 and after several discussions between the respective parties, the Tourism Authority granted the sum of US$15,000, the press statement said.

“This was the first and only grant ever received from a government agency on behalf of Skinny for any music related project,” the press statement said.

A company was employed in Jamaica to shoot the video in Jamaica. The video was submitted to the Tourism Authority and the grant was paid on Jan. 5, 2010.

Vincentian soca artiste Gamal "Skinny Fabulous" Doyle.

A press conference was subsequently held in St. Vincent to launch the video, which was received with great fanfare, the statement further explained.

Bradshaw said that because the video was filmed in Jamaica, the its was less than other comparable videos that her company has produced for other artistes.

She said that internationally acclaimed music video director Jay Will and his production team, which included stylists, make up artists, talent, location scouts, a director of photography and a producer, were all accessible to her company in Jamaica.

Further, Skinny Fabulous, who was completing his studies at the Mona Campus of the University of the West Indies, was also on the island.

“The costs were therefore significantly less than if we had flown an entire crew to St. Vincent from Jamaica and covered all associated costs including fees, accommodation, flights, and per diems,” Bradshaw explained.

  1. I have shown that there are no press releases I have found showing the cost of 75,000 mentioned at the launch. In fact the only news piece from the NEWS which is republished on the Tourism Authority’s website at this address http://discoversvg.com/index.php/fr/home/latest-news/362-tourism-authority-launches-beast-leh-go-music-video speaks of the video being “part funded” by the Tourism Authority. It does not mention 75,000. Thank you for this research Kenton Chance. It would be interested to hear what the CEO has to say about the balance of the money. Where did it go?

  3. Kenton, the NEWS newspaper also reports that Doyle (Skinny) said it was only US$15,000 for the video. Did you get to speak with him also?

  4. Where did Mr. Eustace get the 75,000.00 figure from? Did he just pull it out of thin air or did Mr. Beache announced that number at the launch of the initiative?

    Come on Mr. Eustace, the ball is now in your court to provide the evidence.

    I hope this is not another EPISODE of EUSTACE not doing a THOROUGH RESEARCH before HOLDING a PRESS CONFERENCE, because every time he does a PRESS CONFERENCE it seems to BLOW UP in his FACE.

    Speaking of BLOWING UP in his FACE, Mr. Eustace, the nation is WAITING for the MEETING of the PUBLIC ACCOUNTS COMMITTEE that you ANNOUNCED at the PRESS CONFERENCE.

    Why is it TAKING so LONG?

    Did you get COLD FEET?

  5. wait….is this the same powa teking blows on the hot97 website? once again, skipping past the actual meat of the matter to play politics….. if Mr Eustace said 75 000 wasn’t it in glen’s interest to say that that was not the figure? Address the corruption Powa or what the hell ever your name is.

  9. Let me remind us of the fact that in a Press Statement read by Glen Beache to the press on Wednesday 20th July, 2011, in response to Mr. Eustace’s press conference of Monday 18th July, 2011, Glen Beache himself said:

    “Finally, the last question raised by the Hon. Leader of the Opposition concerning the sum of $75,000.00 to an artist management company in Barbados had to do with the sponsorship of the music video for the “Beast Let Go” performed by Gamal “Skinny Fabulous” Doyle. As many persons here will remember, this cost was disclosed at the launch of this initiative right here in this building.”

    It is evident that nobody put words in his mouth. Beache answered not only by saying that $75,000 was spent on the Skinny Fabulous video but he also said the “cost” was given at the launch of the video. How is it that he now claims he never said that and pretends as if the Opposition leader is mad and made up figures??

    Clearly he is caught lying! After all both the company and Skinny Fabulous himself have distanced themselves from Beache’s story.

    For the record that press statement was sent to local media on 20th July, 2011 by Elson Crick. And we all saw Mr. Beache himself reading it in his press conference on a broadcast of API the following day thursday 21st July, 2011.

    Vincentians deserve better and the CEO of teh SVGTA must apologise for his lies and resign!

  12. Do not forget that Glen Beache held his press conference after Eustace came forward with the claim of 75,000.00 for the video, so where did Eustace get that figure from?

    As for Jordan Knight’s comment, tell me when you wake up out of your stupor.

    By the way, when is Eustace going to call the meeting of the public accounts committee? Is he getting cold feet? If so, why?

    This is what Eustace said at his press conference on the 18th of July courtesy of the Searchlight newspaper..

    Opposition Leader to call PAC meeting soon

    Arnhim Eustace, Leader of the Opposition.
    Staff Reporter • Fri, Jul 22, 2011
    Opposition Leader and President of the New Democratic Party Arnhim Eustace says that he, as Chairman of the Public Accounts Committee (PAC), will be calling a meeting soon to deal with issues relating to a number of financial reports.
    Eustace made this disclosure at a press conference on Monday this week, while discussing what his party believes is a ‘serious conflict of interest’ in relation to Chief Executive Officer of the St. Vincent and the Grenadines Tourism Authority (SVGTA) Glen Beache’s business affiliation with the company responsible for marketing the tourism product of this country.
    The Opposition Leader said that at this meeting, he will seek to discuss the late receipt of the government’s financial reports, among other issues.
    “I intend to call a meeting of the Public Accounts Committee very shortly to discuss that same report and some others that I want information on.”
    “I want information on ‘the Kentucky report’. I want information on what has happened with those matters we raised in relation to the Ministry of Agriculture. I’ll be calling a meeting of the Public Accounts Committee to deal with this.”

    Eustace, the nation is getting impatient. When are you going to call this meeting?

  13. Anesia, I saw no admission by Glen Beache in his statement that the video cost 75,000.00. All he did was address the comment made by Eustace about the video costing 75,000.00.

    In fact, Glen Beache stated, “As many persons here will remember, this cost was disclosed at the launch of this initiative right here in this building.”

    When he said “THIS COST,” he wasn’t referring to the 75,000.00 mentioned by Eustace. He was referring to whatever the cost was that he mentioned “at the launch of this initiative.”

    Did he announce at the launch that the video cost 75,000.00?

    How much you want to bet the answer is a BIG FAT NO?

    The burden is on Mr. Eustace to tell the nation where he got that 75,000.00 figure from.

  14. SIMPLE FACTS FOR PURE, UNTWISTED MINDS:

    On Monday 18th July, 2011, the Hon. Arnhim Eustace asked a question of Glen Beachea nd Minister Saboto Caesar, to “…tell Vincentians whether the St. Vincent Tourism Authority paid $75,000 following the referendum in January, 2010 to an artist management company in Barbados…whether this money was indeed paid and what this money was paid for and who was to benefit from this payment”

    In his press Statement on Wednesday 20th July, 2011, Glen Beache, CEO of the St. Vincent & the Grenadines Tourism Authority (SVGTA), said the following in answer to a question posed by the Hon. Arnhim Eustace, Leader of the Opposition:

    “Finally, the last question raised by the Hon. Leader of the Opposition concerning the sum of $75,000.00 to an artist management company in Barbados had to do with the sponsorship of the music video for the “Beast Let Go” performed by Gamal “Skinny Fabulous” Doyle. As many persons here will remember, this cost was disclosed at the launch of this initiative right here in this building. This video was sponsored as a push for carnival and to enhance the marketing of our destination with the assistance of a local artist, since this song – the “Beast Let Go” had gained immense popularity in the region. Really, it is the same approach used by Jamaica with the music of Bob Marley and more recently by Barbados through the use of the music of Rhianna.”

    However, in Friday July 29, 2011 news in the Searchlight’s newspaper, in response to the claim by Pyramid Entertainment that they only received EC$40,000 from the SVGTA for the production of Skinny Fabulous’ video, Glen Beache said this:

    “I don’t know where Arnhim got $75,000 from. I did not respond to that directly, as there were too many things in Mr. Eustace’s statement which were frivolous. We just did not bother to address it.”

    Now, compare the two statements and tell me if the man isn’t lying? Is it not a lie to say he didn’t answer the question directly?

    Is it not a lie to say he didn’t bother to address it?

    Is it not a lie to say he don’t know where Arnhim got the figure of 75,000 from when he himself admitted to paying 75,000 for the ideo?

    Are Vincentians so dumb that we cannot see and we will allow people to try to spin this into something other than what it really is?

    If Beache made a mistake with the figure, as some are trying to suggest, why did he not just say he made a mistake and correct himself? Why deny he actually said the $75,000? Why deny that he addressed it?

    How could he make such a mistake anyway? That figure is specific! His press statement was a well written, leagally influenced document-clearly he had assistance. How could he make such a ‘mistake’? Hmmmm.

    Then there are bigger questions…Did the board of the TA ever approve any marketing plan to use Skinny Fabulous’ video for marketing SVG?

    Did the board of the TA ever receive any proposal and approve the sum to market the video? Or was the payment made and then the board was made aware?

    People need to stop their wickedness in ths place. Vincentians must demand accountability from those whom they take care of with their taxes. We are not dumb animals but intelligent human beings and we resent the continual insult to our senses. God is not sleeping and he will punish in due time those who oppress the poor and practice wickedness and deceit.

  16. Questioning the frugality and motive behind a $75,000 disbursement is as question an issue as a public service officer can ever get.

    Glen Beache did not refute the sum, he simply attmepted to justify the expenditure citing a (questionable) sort of “bang for the buck” logic. Moreover, Glen Beache’s denial was posterior to the Firm’s discloseure of the amount of monies recieved.

    If $75,000 was therefor not in play, why only allow this figure to float untill the firm recieveing the monies revealed that it only recieved $40,000?

  17. let us reorient the debate on the issue at hand and igorne Wade’s rant about Eustace.

  18. Anesia someone asked vincy powa the same question on the hot97 site, i think it was one andy lavia about the so-call mistake and as usual the great powa danced around the issue. so here he is trying the same tactics on another site. they are all full of nonsense. So if he only spent 40 thousand, can young Mr Beache tell us where the rest of the money went?????

    Posted by jordan knight | July 31, 2011, 19:51
  19. Anesia, Glen is CORRECT.

    He made reference to the $75,000.00 that Mr. Eustace announced at the press conference. Making a reference to it is not a SUBMISSION that he DIRECTLY ADDRESSED it.

    He basically glosses over it.

    From the way Glen worded his comments, one can easily conclude that he was not speaking specifically or directly to the figure quoted by Eustace, but more to do with the figure announced at the “LAUNCH of the INITIATIVE.”

    Anesia, tell us what was the FIGURE that Glen Beache announced at the LAUNCH of the INITIATIVE. Surely you know what the figure is. Is it the $75,000.00 that Eustace made mention of at the PRESS CONFERENCE?

    If the answer is no, then it beckons then, where did Mr. EUSTACE get the $75,000.00 FIGURE from?

    As usual, every time Mr. Eustace calls a PRESS CONFERENCE, it always BLOW UP in his FACE.

    That said; I agree with you Anesia. Vincentians need ACCOUNTABILITY.

    Vincentians are DEMANDING that Mr. Eustace give ACCOUNTABILITY for the monies of some $200,000.00 given to him for a constituency office over a period of a decade.

    We also want to know what happened to monies, about $30,000.00 and counting, given to Mr. Eustace over a period of 7 months for a research officer.

    Anesia, do you know when or if Mr. Eustace is going to call the MEETING of the PUBLIC ACCOUNTS COMMITTEE which he announced at his press conference?

    Posted by Vincy Powa | July 31, 2011, 22:03
  20. Vincent, your advice is the best and that is what sane, rational vincentians will continue to do. Keep the issue in focus. Again, I reiterate the fact that when Mr. beache said “This cost”, right after he answered the question posed to him about the figure, he was referring to the said figure of EC$75,000. He did not refute the figure and say it was wrong and it was another figure. Recently he refuted Mr. Eustace’s presentation of some tourism statistics by citing other statistics (arguable) so we know that he knows how to refute figures.

    Also, if Mr. Beache knows that no figure was stated at the Launch, then to say the 75,000 was given at the launch is another lie! Everytime the man opens his mouth he ties himself up because he lies repeatedly and he is clearly found out. That is the real issue here.

    Again, Did the Board of the TA approve any marketing plan to use the Skinny Fabulous Video as a marketing tool for 2010? Did the Chairman at the time and the board at the time approve any such proposal for 2010, according to the power of the board by law? Or Was the money spent and then the board informed?

    If the ULP starngers to the truth think they can just gloss over this issue with their blatant sickening propaganda as they usually do, they must think again!

    Posted by anesiab | July 31, 2011, 22:11
  21. Vincent Charles, it is not for Mr. Beache to tell you what happened to the $35,000.00.

    The BURDEN is now on Mr. Eustace to PRODUCE the DOCUMENT that SUBSTANTIATE his CLAIM that 75,000.00 were paid for the video.

    The BALL is now in Mr. Eustace’s court.

    The NATION is waiting for Mr. Eustace to produce the evidence or else he is going to look like a liar and a laughing stock, again.

    It seems like whenever Mr. Eustace holds a press conference, take everything he says with a pinch of salt.

  24. Ann-Marie Ballantyne, the only PLAIN FACTS STARING right at me is that ARNHIM EUSTACE said during his PRESS CONFERENCE that $75,000.00 was paid for the BEAST LEGGO video and the company said that it was paid $40,000.00.

    So the question beckons, where did Eustace get the 75,000.00 from?

    It is now up to Eustace to REVEAL to the people of this NATION the EVIDENCE that 75,000.00 was PAID for the VIDEO in question.

    So yes, we all want the TRUTH.

    Mr. Eustace, tell us the truth.

    Where did you get the 75,000.00 figure from ?

    Did you pull it out of thin air, so as to manufactured another propaganda storyline to keep your name and your party relevant in the eyes of the masses?

    Posted by Vincy Powa | July 31, 2011, 22:37
  25. Ann-Marie and fellow Vincentians, I beseech you not to let any man deceive you by any means. THE FACT is:

    On Monday July 18, 2011, The Hon. Arnhim Eustace held a Press Conference at the New Democratic Party Headquarters. An entire Press Statement was prepared and copies were given to the local Press in attendance as well as forwarded to the press acoordingly.

    Under the subheading “Questions and More Questions” of that press statement there were 9 points/questions. Number 9 reads:

    ” And in addition to all of this Former Minister of Tourism now CEO Glen Beache and present Minister of Tourism Saboto Ceasar tell this Country whether the St. Vincent Tourism Authority paid $75,000 following the Referendum in January 2010 to an artist management company in Barbados? Tell us whether this money was indeed paid and what this money was paid for and who was to benefit from this payment.”

    THIS FACT makes teh claim above that “ARNHIM EUSTACE said during his PRESS CONFERENCE that $75,000.00 was paid for the BEAST LEGGO video” a BLATANT LIE against Mr. Eustace.

    He asked a question!
    No where in his words did he say the words “Beast LEGGO video”!
    No where in his words did he makea statement of fact about 75,00 being paid for the “Beast Leggo video”.
    No where in his words did he say what the 75,000 was paid for.

    Instead, he asked whether it was paid, whether it was indeed paid and for what and for whom?

    It was Glen Beache who first admitted that 75,00 was paid in a statement of fact when he said “Finally, the last question raised by the Hon. Leader of the Opposition concerning the sum of $75,000.00 to an artist management company in Barbados…”

    Here, even Glen Beache describes what Mr. Eustace said as a “QUESTION RAISED”

    It was Glen Beache who first introduced what the money was paid for and for whos benefit when he said, “…had to do with the sponsorship of the music video (the what) for the “Beast Let Go” performed by Gamal “Skinny Fabulous” Doyle ( the who was to benefit from this payment)”.

    You really cannot do anything against the truth but for the truth. Every attempt to spin the truth through lies, only makes the truth in fact shine brighter. Boom!

    Posted by anesiab | July 31, 2011, 22:57
  26. Bam! Truth over error. Fact over fiction. Reality over propaganda. Sight over blindness. Order over confusion. Light over darkness…shine. Bam!

    Posted by Ann-Marie Ballantyne | July 31, 2011, 23:23
  27. The fact that all this argument is taking place further establishes the cause for Mr. Beache to resign. He had INTEREST in PRIVATEly selling a service to an enterprise which he overseas on behalf of the PUBLIC. This is the main reason for him to reason. Whether or not 35, 000 is missing is another story, perhaps a criminal one.

    Posted by Bagga | July 31, 2011, 23:33
  28. Anesia, was the artist management company in Barbados responsible for the making of the video “the Beast Leggo?”

    The press statement made clear that “This was the first and only grant ever received from a government agency on behalf of Skinny for any music related project,”

    The music related project is the “BEAST LEGGO,” no?

    If it is, then isn’t it safe to say that what Mr. Eustace was referring to at his press conference when he said, “And in addition to all of this Former Minister of Tourism now CEO Glen Beache and present Minister of Tourism Saboto Ceasar tell this Country whether the St. Vincent Tourism Authority paid $75,000 following the Referendum in January 2010 to an artist management company in Barbados,” was the “BEAST LEGGO” video, no?

    If not, then Mr. Eustace needs to tell the nation what exactly he was referring to.

    Now that we have established that Mr. Eustace question to Mr. Beache and Mr. Caesar had no foundation in fact, as far as the evidence has shown, so far, Mr. Eustace needs to tell us how he came up with the $75,000.00 figure.

    Did he pull it out of a hat or is this another episode of Mr. Eustace not fully doing his homework??

    That is a possibility since he has not hired a research officer for close to 8 months. I wonder what Mr. Eustace has done with all that money allocated to hire a research officer?

    By the way, the nation is waiting with bated breath for Mr. Eustace to call the meeting of the PUBLIC ACCOUNTS COMMITTEE.

    I hope he did not GET COLD FEET.

    Posted by Vincy Powa | August 1, 2011, 02:27
  29. Bagga, well, the nation is still talking about the over $200,000.00 that Mr. Eustace has accumulated over a decade for a constituency office that is nowhere to be found in East Kingstown.

    Moreover, they’re talking about the over $30,000.00 allocated to Mr. Eustace for hiring of a research officer.

    If he has not hired a research officer, the nation would like to know why and what happened to the $30,000.00 that he has gotten.

    Since the nation is talking feverishly about these issues, do you think Mr. Eustace should resign?

    Nevertheless, I applaud Mr. Eustace for having the guts to finally call a meeting of the public accounts committee after over a decade of only calling no more than one..

    The nation needs to know about what happened to the monies allocated to Mr. Eustace just as much as Mr. Eustace wants to find out about the few hundred dollars for KFC for the Cubans who are helping to build the largest capital project in the history of SVG, the Argyle International Airport.

  30. You can’t be serious about a lousy EC 1500 dollars a month.I probably eat more than that for lunch every month, but What you should do is go sit in Mr. Eustace’s office on a morning, and I’m sure your conscience would force you to leave when you see what goes on there. Then again, maybe Mr. Eustace would answer you if we know where all the US money came from that went into the NCB.

    Anyhow, that’s for you to find out. The rest of us is concerned about the actions and intent of Mr.Beache.

  31. All powa is doing giving us a couple lines about cost this and cost that, then the rest of his rant is about public accounts committee. Powa try and get your hands on the full report about the 600 dollars kfc as you put it. was the 600 dollars the only thing in question from that report?

    Posted by jordan knight | August 1, 2011, 10:42
  32. I’ll say this last piece and then get off this distraction. What exactly is the 1500 dollars for? Is it to up-keep an existing constituency office or is to establish and up-keep one?

    In other words, if I’m a new representative, is this supposed to be used to build and up-keep an office or is it given, assuming that an office structure is already established? What is this 1500 for?

    It can’t be to build an office, so I’m going to assume it is just for the light bill and up-keep of an existing structure. In this day and age, can anybody run a sheep pen with 1500 a month? The decals alone that you have to put in there to prevent “Rongs” from riding the sheep – that alone is probably over 1500. On a serious note, y’all gotta be crazy. Not only that, what happens to the people of the constituency? Is part of the 1500 for them also?

    Furthermore, I guess we are suppose to believe that Mr. Eustace has been pocketing this 1500 and has been doing nothing for his constituents, even though these same people have continued to increase their votes for him going on 20 years, with “no constituency office”.

    Is this what you want to have us believe? I mean, he must be doing something for these people, and if he is pocketing this 1500, where is he getting money from to do what he does for them? Why have these people been continually voting for him, while he has been ‘pocketing’ this 1500?

    The answer to this question could solve the whole thing, and that’s for people like Powa to find out and tell us. While you at it, tell us where Burn’s office for the Worker’s Institute is.

    Now back to Mr. Beache. Resign! Corrupt is as corrupt does.

  33. From the time I read Bagga’s opening comment of “You can’t be serious about a lousy EC 1500 dollars a month.” I know it is just WORTHLESS engaging him in DIALOGUE, and so I STOPPED reading from that POINT on.

    Bagga’s statement is CLASSIC EXAMPLE of BLINDNESS and HYPOCRISY practice by the NDP.

  34. Well Vincy Power, it is quite obvious that you are a silly person, with no POWER at all. For you to defend what is obviously wrong is an act of total collaboration of the worst kind. Your kind of beliefs have always led to calamity in the world. Its time to stop making yourself look total idiot and shut up.

    If the figure was wrong Beache should have said so, otherwise his failure to do so brings his behaviour into further questioning. Is he a fit person to be in charge of a government company.

  35. Peter, is the tripe that Bagga wrote an ACT OF TOTAL COLLABORATION of the WORST KIND?

    Since you want to give off the IMPRESSION that you’re impartial, I look forward to your answer.

    That said; when all is said and done, Eustace will be looked at, once again, as a leader who shoots from the HIP.

    Mr. Eustace, we’re WAITING for you to LIVE UP to your WORDS UTTERED at the PRESS CONFERENCE.

    The NATION is WAITING for you to call the MEETING of the PUBLIC ACCOUNTS COMMITTEE as mentioned at the press conference.

  38. We now have the information that $40K was paid for the production of the video,

    Lets just have simple answer did Skinny Fabulous get paid a fee on top of this sum? yes or no

    If yes, how much?

    It really is very simple, lets cut all the crap

    If no one denies such a payment, we should assume the worst.

    No one minds Skinny getting paid, we just need to know.
