The ECOWAS Youth Council and West African Youth Support Development Forum has filed law suit against singer, PeterPsquare over his failure to show up at a program after collecting the sum of N2.8 million as payment.
According to the group, Mr. P received 70% of the down payment of 4 million to perform at the inauguration of the West Africa Champions League in Asaba, Delta State, but he did not show up.
Speaking in an interview with IGBERE TV, the group managing director said;
“On June 16th, 2019, after Mr. P collected the money and did a video that he will be coming live, he refused to show up at the event which later crashed the dream of the organization to give a better opportunity to youths.
“Mr P actually killed the show by not turning up for the event. Many people wanted to see him perform live.
“We lost over 33 Million Naira because he didn’t show up. the efforts of former under 20 and 17 national team coach, Sam John Obuh and other hosts of celebrities who honored the event to support our youth development through sports were killed by Mr. P’s actions.”
“We have sued him for over 500, 000, 000, 00 nairas. The organizations have written to him severally to refund the money but he refused”.
“That’s why we are in court today, 23rd February 2022 but the court has adjourned the case to 13th April 2022.”
