Multiple award-winning hip-life artiste Sarkodie has been served a writ by an Accra High Court for failing to show up at an all-expenses paid show in Russia.
According to the writ served last Friday at the instance of Lawrence Ampene Larson Darko, a Russian-based Ghanaian DJ, Sarkodie known in private life as Michael Owusu Addo failed to turn up at the Moscow show though having received a commitment fee of €4,000.
Sarkodie instead of an agreement to apply for a Russian visa in Ghana did so in France and was consequently denied, causing the cancelation of the show originally scheduled to be held on November 7.
According to the plaintiff, failure of Sarkodie to make it to the show was “self-induced and was as a result of his negligence and that if the Defendant had put in the visa application in Ghana, he would not have been denied the visa”.
The plaintiff, who is also a student in Russia, is demanding $11,656 for various sums incurred in preparation for the show.
