Busy Signal Addresses Mic Cut Off At Groovin In NYC {VIDEO}

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: Busy Signal Talks With Dahved Levy About How He Got Back His Visa And Why He Was Arrested in 2012.

Busy Signal is still fuming after his microphone was cut off during his performance at last week’s Groovin’ In The Park in New York City.

The dancehall deejay wasn’t the only one who was visibly upset, the audience was also angry after the deejay’s set was cut short approximately 20 minutes into his performance. The entire incident seems like it was poor time management by the promoters and R. Kelly was scheduled to perform after Busy Signal. “If me can’t perform then R. Kelly can’t perform either,” Busy said before storming off the show.

“I think some time crunching was going on and I don’t know why they managed it so bad that it reached me,” Busy Signal said. “They didn’t manage the time right and I am very proud of the way I handled it. I asked the 40,000 people at ‘Groovin’ if they liked what was taking place and they said No.”

“I was scheduled to perform at 5 PM and I was there from 3:04 PM way before my time to perform,” Signal told Winford Williams. “I watched other acts performed their full set. People were there anticipated the whole thing and I was there peeping out to get a feel of what to expect and see the venue getting packed, I heard that this show was packed.”

Busy Signal recently got back his United States visa and work permit and this is his first performance in the U.S. in 15 years.

(VIDEO) Busy Signal Explains Why He Was Arrested in 2012



Busy Signal has a lot to celebrate today after getting back his United States visa and touching down on U.S. soil.

The Turf Boss is currently in New York City for the first time in 15 years. This also marks the first time the dancehall deejay is on U.S. soil as a free man. “It’s a blessing, the most high bless the Turf as usual, god get the most praise god get all the praise in the world from me,” Signal said in a video clip.

Busy was arrested in 2012 at the Norman Manley International airport in Kingston after arriving on the island from Europe. U.S. Marshals then extradite him to the States for a drug charge dated back 10 years before. He was subsequently tried and sentenced to six months in jail after his legal team pleaded with the judge for leniency given the fact the Busy Signal changed his life drastically since the time of the incident.

Following a short visit to the United States, Busy Signal will then return to Jamaica and then embark on a European tour from January 28 through to February 21. The tour will cover 17 shows across the continent.


Busy Signal Returns To Jamaica

Prominent Dancehall/Reggae superstar, Busy Signal has returned to the streets of Jamaica after serving his six month prison term in the United States on a charge of absconding bail.

The popular entertainer, whose real name is Glendale Goshia Gordon arrived at the Norman Manley International Airport in Kingston on Friday night. Busy Signal was met at the airport by his manager, Shane Brown and fellow Dancehall superstar, Elephant Man, as well as friends and family.

Pictures of Busy's arrival emerged late Friday night via Busy's official Twitter account with statuses such as "Guess who is back? God Is GOOD!" and Turf and brothers reunited. Only God."

Busy Signal had been in the United State since June when he was extradited to the North American country from Jamaica after initially being arrested in the United Kingdom. Busy, who had been suspected of using false identification, was later slapped by American law enforcement officials with a charge of failure to appear in court. The charge stemmed from a 2002 drug case in which Busy Signal fled the country while awaiting trial.

Busy Signal later pled guilty to absconding bail and received a lesser sentence given his previously clean record and various charitable initiatives throughout Jamaica.
With the entertainer being out of prison, he will have the chance to see his son, Egypt Knight-Gordon for the first time. Busy Signal's girlfriend, Tunya Palmer gave birth to Egypt this past July while Busy was behind bars.
