Machel, Iwer Settle Dispute – So­ca star Machel Mon­tano has apol­o­gised to fel­low en­ter­tain­er Iw­er George and en­cour­aged him to per­form at his con­cert tonight.

On Sat­ur­day, George called for a pub­lic apol­o­gy from Mon­tano fol­low­ing last year’s de­ba­cle in­volv­ing Sun­ny Bling at Machel Mon­day.

But yes­ter­day a pho­to emerged of George, Mon­tano, An­tho­ny Chow Lin On (Chi­nese Laun­dry) and Ron­nie McIn­tosh.

In an in­ter­view, vet­er­an mas man Mc In­tosh said both par­ties stopped by this mas camp un­planned and he en­cour­aged them to thrash out their is­sues.

He says Mon­tano was un­aware of Iw­er’s call for an apol­o­gy and said he al­ways planned for him to per­form at his con­cert tonight.

How­ev­er, Mc In­tosh says Mon­tano im­me­di­ate­ly apol­o­gised to Iw­er for any hurt he was feel­ing. Mc In­tosh, a for­mer So­ca Monarch win­ner says while so­ca is all about bac­cha­nal and vibes he does not be­lieve artistes should al­low it to es­ca­late in­to a feud or rift.

He adds he ad­vised Iw­er to per­form at Machel Mon­day at the Na­tion­al Sta­di­um, in Port-of-Spain.

How­ev­er, there is no word on if George will, in fact, show up.
