Black Sherif Slapped With $100K Lawsuit By Cruise People Ltd

The Cruise People Limited, the firm in the ongoing contractual conflict with young Ghanaian songster Black Sherif has formally filed a lawsuit against him for alleged breach of contract.

The claim, which was filed at the High Court, contends that the vocalist failed to honour the agreement between the two parties, resulting in the abrogation of the Afro Cruise Jam show for which he had been planning to perform in August.

According to the complainant, after booking the ‘Kwaku The Traveller’ for the cruise show and paying half of his booking fee ($20,000), they anticipated him to produce a video confirming his participation in the Greece-based event.

However, the musician reportedly did not live up to expectations as agreed, ushering in the revocation of the booking and a loss of $18,000 for securing cabins on the cruise ship.

The show organizers contend that Black Sherif’s failure to confirm his participation jeopardized the entire show, as his availability was important to enticing patronage.

This behaviour, they claim, amounts to a fundamental breach of the agreement and warrants lawful action.

As part of the lawsuit, Cruise People Limited is pursuing the return of the $20,000 booking fee, as well as $18,000 to cover the lost cabin booking costs. They are also requesting interest on the $20,000 from April 18, 2023, until the date of the final payment.
Also, the organizers are seeking $50,000 in lost profits resulting from the alleged breach of contract.

a. An Order directed at Defendant to pay Plaintiff USD20, 000.00 being the part payment of the fee paid to Defendant;
