Now someone just sued Sarkodie and we at Ghbase.com have the full gist for you.
It’s somewhat some bad news for the Rap God, Sarkodie as he has been sued by a Russia based Ghanaian DJ and promoter, known as Lawrence Ampere Darko.
According to Lawrence, Sarkodie owes him some $11,656 in damages for an event that was supposed to be held in Russia for which Sarkodie didn’t show up for.
In the writ which has been served to Sarkodie, known in real life as Micheal Owusu, the Russian based Ghanaian wanted Sarkodie to come perform in Russia as part of his Europe Tour and thus contacted management of Sarkodie about it and they came into agreement.
The Ghanaian Promoter agreed to pay Sarkodie 8000 euros to come perform in Russia. He then paid half of the amount to Sarkodie and agreed to pay the other half after the show. He came into agreements with Sarkodie’s management, that they should apply for the Visas to Russia in Ghana and so booked for an expensive Hotel in Russia in addition to the invitation and sent them to management of Sarkodie, so as to make the process easier for them.
Unfortunately, Sarkodie couldn’t make it to Russia because his team applied for the Visa in France and they were refused the visa to Russia because they were not French.
Now, because Sarkodie wasn’t able to make it to Russia to perform, the young man asked that his management re-imburse him with the 4,000 euros he had already paid and also an apology video, so he can show to the fans who had bought the ticket for refund.
According to what was written in the writ, the management of Sarkodie were very reluctant in paying the money and after so much pressure, sent him 2000 euros, which is half of the amount.
Now, Lawrence is asking that he be paid the half balance which is 2000 euros plus some $11,656 which is composed of cost for getting invitation letter and other supporting documents, Travel Insurance cover for him and his crew, loss of expected income. commission paid on tickets sold, rent payment for the venue of the show and publicity.
