What is the latest on Black Sherif’s court issue with his investor, Shadrach Agyei Owusu (Chavis)?
Well, Ghana Weekend has been following up on the matter. At least we need to get our audience updated on the issue since it is of great interest to many.
On 11th April 2022, a writ of summons by the plaintiff, Shadrach Agyei Owusu, requesting that Ghanaian artiste Black Sherif be prevented from performing at events without his consent, was sighted by the media.
Shadrack requested an order for the preservation of all funds accrued from Black Sherif’s online streams.
Shadrach Agyei Owusu, the Chief Executive Officer of Waynes Chavis Consult, wanted a receiver to be taking the proceeds of all funds that would be accrued from the activities of the defendant.
This happened at a time when Black Sherif’s latest song ‘Kwaku The Traveller’ was topping global charts, making him the most sought-after artiste in Ghana in recent times.
Why was Black Sherif sued?
This suit came on the back of claims that Black Sherif had neglected his investor after he had injected funds into his career.
Black Sherif was reported to have signed a distribution deal with Empire Music without the consent of his investor, who purportedly had a business management contract with him.
The contract required that Black Sherif conducted all his activities through the investor who came on board to help the artiste.
Court day: May 9, 2022
This was the date set for the court hearing on the matter. So far, little information has been gathered about what became of that particular hearing.
While some of our sources say the case was not called at all, others say, it was deferred to a later date.
Ghana Weekend has tried scooping some information from both sides of the issue, but they are unwilling to really give details of the current situation of this suit.
Ordinarily, this should be none of our business, but Ghana Weekend, as a media organisation, is interested in streamlining all facets of the entertainment industry. We saw this matter as a test case of many cracks in artiste-manager deals in the country. We are not on a mission of waking up sleeping dogs. We want precedence to be set for posterity.
Currently, Black Sherif is minding his music business, making money for himself, and growing his music career. Shadrack on the other hand is going about his work. They are both silent about the issue like nothing happened.
Maybe they have squashed their matter in private. Maybe Ghana Weekend is impatient with the outcome of the court hearing.
Maybe, our dear readers need to keep their eyes glued to our platforms as we nose out all details on this matter in our subsequent episodes.
We’ll be back!
