Did Kakai Bautista get swindled in Switzerland?
041916-KakaiBautista_PUSH.jpgPerforming in a two-day show in Zurich, Switzerland earlier this month, Kakai Bautista along with her manager flew to Europe with a promise from the promoter that they would be fully paid upon arrival at the airport.

In a post on her official Facebook page dated last April 18, Monday, Kakai Bautista called out and tagged the alleged show promoter, a Ms. “Eppie Balagasay” for failing to honor their agreement on payment and accommodations in Switzerland.

Based on the lengthy post, here are the complaints Kakai listed during their trip:

1. Failure of promoter to pay them in full upon arrival in Switzerland.
2. Failure to book their hotel on their last night's stay.
3. Promoter did not provide them dinner before Kakai's show.
4. Obligating Kakai to attend a meet-and-greet event even though she was still not paid at that point. 

Kakai also claimed that there was no sign of payment even as they preparing to fly back to Manila even though they were informed the one of the show’s sponsors had supposedly already paid the promoter.  Although the talented comedienne did not mention anything about taking legal action against the promoter, netizens who commented advised her to sue.

Kakai's manager KF Bautista also posted a portion of the contract agreement between the show’s producers and Kakai on his Instagram account imploring the promoter to pay up so that the issue would be resolved already.
