Ravi B's behaviour 'unacceptable'

George Singh Jr, chief executive officer of Southex, says he is disappointed with the actions of dethroned Chutney Soca Monarch, Ravi Bissambhar, during his guest performance at Saturday night's final.

"I was infuriated. It is totally unacceptable. We have requested a copy of the tape and we are meeting with our lawyers tomorrow morning," he said.

Singh said Bissambhar's call for fans to pelt something on the stage if they were unhappy with the results, was unacceptable.

The $2 million first prize was won by Samraj "Rikki Jai" Jaimungal.

Singh said , "This action cannot be tolerated. I want to send a message to the other entertainers."

Singh said he will also discuss whether Bissambhar would be allowed to return to the competition.

Rikki Jai's win was not supported by all who attended.

During a post show concert, Ravi B asked all who were unhappy with the results to pelt something.

Ravi B has since apologised for his actions which happened after Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar, who handed over the $2 million prize, had left with her entourage of politicians.

Ravi B issued a second apology yesterday stating, "To my supporters, well-wishers and the public, and in particular to Mr George Singh as the promoter and producer of Chutney Soca Monarch. I am sorry for my irresponsible actions on Saturday night. I apologise wholeheartedly for action unprofessional. I obviously let my disappointment and my emotions get the better of me. This was a mistake."
