The rapper, who is of Trinidadian descent, was paid a large portion of the $825,000 spent— $382,000, $60,000 of which was spent on hotel expenses.

Additionally $15,000 was spent for the concert’s advertising, $75,000 was spent or the venue, $60,000 was spent for the fashion show, $40,000 was spent for the local acts, $32,000 went to the Copyright Organization of Trinidad and Tobago and $26,000 was paid to cultural acts.

The organizer of the event, Sport and Youth Affairs Minister Anil Roberts has since spoken out against Brown and asked him to “focus on the facts and stop trying to play games.”
