Ugandan Firm Wants Wizkid To Pay Over N150m
Ugandans believe Wizkid let them down for wiping out his booked show in their nation, in spite of his statement of apology.
This has prompted to the show’s coordinators, Face TV, to file charges for cheating, conspiracy to defraud and obtaining money by false pretenses against him
The charges come from considerable costs in booking and re-booking flights, hotel, venue, publicizing and advert for the show – which more than 25,000 individuals had as of now purchased tickets for – which net over $300,000 (over N144m), as indicated by records documented by the Chief Magistrates Court of Buganda.
Between August 29 and November 29 2016, the show promoters supposedly paid Sunday Are, Wizkid’s administrator, the full performance fee of US$60,000, a brokerage fee of US$5,000 and US$3,000 being routine set of expenses for the days they would remain in Uganda.
The Ugandan promoters additionally need Interpol to venture in, in the wake of getting a warrant of arrest on the ailing Nigerian artist.
Wizkid and his manager Sunday Are are required to show up in court at the latest January 16, 2017, as they face a base fine of N150m spent in arrangement for the show, which would have been the greatest in the nation this year.
‘We’re on it, we’re talking to them, I need to know who sent it,’ Wizkid‘s manager, Sunday Are told Thenetng.
Nigerian fans are rallying round the pop star, even as talks are progressing between both sides.
The “Ojuelegba” vocalist is in the United States, taking after Doctors’ advice to cancel out his December and January 2017 shows, because of his health.
