Promoter Tia Reinford who demanded to be compensated by entertainer I-Octane has gotten her wish.

Earlier this year, Music News reported that the Westmoreland Kite Festival ended after patrons’ pelted bottles on stage following the abrupt end of I-Octane’s set. Today, I-Octane and the promoter have negotiated and will give the people a free concert on April 28.

Tia Reinford thanks I-Octane for the gesture.

The Westmoreland Kite Festival was slated to take place on New Year’s Day 2012.

The 'little station that could' got all media houses in Jamaica to stand up and take note.
