Ghanaian rapper Black Sherif whose new song “Kwaku The Traveller’ is topping charts across the world since its release has been dragged to court by his Former Manager Shardrach Owusu.
In a writ of summon from the court available to us on Phylx.com, the court has commanded the rapper to appear within eight days after being served with the document.
This comes after alleged misunderstanding between the Artiste and his Former Manager/ investor over his deal with Empire Entertainment.
In an exclusive interview with Da Don on U Sey Weytin, on Hitz FM, Madonna, Black Sherif’s purported manager, stated that, Snap came in only as an investor after the successful ‘Second Sermon’ hit, and that even the shooting of the remix video with Burna Boy was produced and shot by EMPIRE Entertainment, not by “Snap”.
“Snap came on board as an investor. We started working with him after Second Sermon, and the only we project we released under his support was Second Sermon Remix… and even with that, his investment wasn’t neck-deep into the project. The production of the remix and shooting of the video was funded by EMPIRE.”
“Of course, Snap sorted us out with some few things – he provided us with shelter. He didn’t buy any house for Black Sherif as speculated on social media. It was his house, and we were all living in it including Snap himself and his boys,” Madonna added.
Unfortunately, the manager was later sacked from the house due to a misunderstanding that ensued between Snap and Madonna. The latter noted that the regular Separation of Powers in artiste management was not adhered to by Snap in their case. He said Snap was overstepping his boundaries when he was managing affairs regarding the young singer.
“Snap suddenly became a Booking Manager – he began to schedule events and interviews for my artiste without my permission. Fast forward, he also made himself the Road Manager for my artiste”
When asked by Da Don whether there was a contract binding Snap and Black Sherif, Madonna confirmed its existence. However, he declined to mention details of what the contract entailed.
“The contract is very sensitive on the management level so I wouldn’t want to discuss it in public,” he declared.
