In a report published in The Daily Tribune last October, Slapshock guitarist Lee Nadela revealed that Slapshock decided to disband after 23 years following an alleged series of anomalies within the group which included unauthorized cash withdrawals and misappropriation of talent fees.
Later that month, band guitarist and Jamir’s first cousin Jerry Basco filed estafa and qualified theft charges amounting to 1 (one) million worth of royalties and talent fees against the lead vocalist of the band and one other member.
Slapshock was formed in 1997 and has released numerous hits including “Agent Orange,” “Ngayon Na,” and “Cariño Brutal.”
