The Kwaku The Traveller hitmaker won the court battle he was in with his former manager, Shadrack Agyei Owusu, who tried to prevent Black Sherif from performing his songs.
It has come to light that the lawsuit has been dismissed by the High Court’s Commercial Division, which is chaired by Her Ladyship Justice Akua Sarpomaa Amoah (Mrs.).
On April 11, 2022, Shadrach filed a lawsuit against the performer, alleging, among other things, damages of more than $1 million for contract breach.
He also filed for an injunction to stop the musician from performing and exploiting his talent until the case is tried and judgment was given.
Ghana Weekend reports that Mr. Agyei Owusu also asked for interim preservation and the appointment of a receiver to manager and account for proceeds from performances and streams of Black Sherif’s music.
His lawyers argued that if this was not done, the artist will dissipate the funds.
But the artiste’s lawyers led by Samson Lardy Anyenini argued against the motion after they had filed a defense and counterclaim for Black Sherif.
In her ruling today, the judge held that Plaintiff had failed to make a good case for the injunction and related orders he seeks from the court, Ghana Weekend can confirm.
Justice Sarpomaa Amoah held that Defendant will suffer grave injustice if the motion was granted.
According to the court, there was evidence that has not been challenged that Black Sherif was no longer bound by the contract after terminating it.
Mr. Anyenini thanked the court and said he was waiving the cost against Plaintiff because that will not help ongoing negotiations by the parties to resolve the matter amicably.
The litigation started after Black Sherif reportedly signed a distribution deal with Empire Music without the consent of his financier and manager Shadrack.
