« on: May 19, 2017, 12:35:03 AM »

Nigerian reggae-dancehall singer and songwriter Burna boy has been slammed with an injunction by a supreme federal court in New York, USA. The injunction bans him from performing at any event venue or any form of recording anywhere in USA & Canada for the time being.

He was sued in the Federal Court by a New York based promotion company, Vibesland Entertainment, LLC founded by Promoter/Producer Niyi Fatogun on allegations that he signed a contract for a 2016 United States and Canada tour and postponed the tour, failed to turn up which put the promoter in serious debt

Although Burna Boy an independent artist signed under the Burna Boy Ltd, released his OAS LP under Spaceship Entertainment label that presently holds the copyright to all his music,Vibesland Entertainment, LLC was said to have invested up to $25,000 US Dollars in preparation and facilitation of Burna boy’s trip but trouble started after the promoter obtained a US Work Permit approval visa for Burna Boy but the singer failed to honor the contractual agreement.

Burna boy's management invited the promoter to London from New York in order to try to facilitate the tour and discuss in person, the promoter traveled to London at their expense to meet up with  his management all to no avail.
