AY shouldn’t have collected the client’s contact details.
He shouldn’t have reached out to him to talk about payments.
He shouldn’t have forwarded Basketmouth’s message to the client, definitely, the client will never work with Basketmouth again.
Basketmouth should have paid AY before or immediately after the event”.
