Reggae star Mavado, who just performed at the Gold Coast Roller Rink in Fort Lauderdale a week ago, was robbed on Tuesday in Toronoto. According to reports, most of Mavado's belongings were stolen including a laptop, money, and his passport. As a result, Mavado has cancelled his upcoming shows (Atlanta and Trinidad are pissed off) as he's literally stuck in Canada without any travel documents.
