Songstress Etana is still with booking agent Solid Agency despite speculation that the singer had left the camp.

Rumours have been circulating for more than a week that Etana had left the Sharon Burke-run agency because of conflicts between the two. When contacted, however, Burke said that Etana was still with Solid Agency and advised THE STAR to speak with the artiste.

Etana also confirmed that she was still with Solid Agency, but has expanded her team to include Junior ‘Heavy D’ Fraser of Supreme Promotions. However, Heavy D, at the time when contacted, did not want to make any comment to the media about his work with the singer.

Different functions

Etana said, “The rumours are not true, I’m still with Solid. What is going on is that I’ve expanded the team instead of having one person doing everything. It’s like any company; there are several departments that make up the whole and doing different functions.”

According to Etana, Heavy D is in charge of promoting her in the streets and will act as a road manager for some events. Solid Agency, she said, would also still be dealing with some of her events as well.

Debut album

Etana has been with Solid Agency for two and a half years since her entry on the local scene as a solo artiste and released her debut album, Etana: The Strong One. Despite the rumours that things were not going well between herself and Burke, Etana said, “There are no bad vibes, no fighting. Me and Solid we’re growing, we’re continuing to grow and there’s still a lot to do as we go along. Last year, we did a lot of touring and a lot of dates, media events, awards. All that work just means that there is more work to do this year.”

Etana has been on the road and recently released the video for her conscious song Caltariba System. Her next video for her collaboration with Italian reggae singer Alborosie, called Blessing, will be out next week and is directed by Ras Kassa. Come April, Etana will also be looking to release her next video for her new single titled Free. In the meantime the singer is busy in the studio recording as well.
