Ghanaian Hip-pop musician, Mohammed Ismail Sherif, known in the entertainment industry as Black Sherif, has been sued following the alleged termination of his business management contract with his manager.
The ‘Kweku Frimpong’ hit maker has reportedly terminated the contractual agreement with the Chief Executive Officer (CEO), of Waynes Chavis Consult, Shadrach Agyei Owusu through his solicitors on Friday, April 8, 2022.
Black Sherif is believed to have signed a distribution deal with Empire Music without the consent and approval of his investor after he supposedly parted ways with the group.
Following this, the Investor and Manager has filed a writ of summons dated April 11, 2022, requesting that Black Sherif is prevented from performing at events without his consent.
The plaintiff is seeking for “an order of injunction to restrain the Defendant/Respondent, his agents, assigns, workmen and associates from performing at events or entering into agreements to perform at events or otherwise exploit his music and image without recourse to the Plaintiff/Applicant”
“An order for the preservation of all funds that has accrued to the Defendant/Respondent from online streaming platforms and other revenue sources.”
Again, “an order for the appointment of a Receiver to receive any and all funds that may accrue to the Defendant/ Respondent from the use and exploitation of his music and image. Any further Order that this Court may deem fit” the writ noted.
The plaintiff is therefore demanding the above-stated reliefs “until the final determination of the matters in dispute and on the grounds, contained in the supporting affidavit.”
Black Sherif is yet to officially respond to the writ meanwhile the case is expected to be heard on May 9, 2022 at the Accra High Court.
