Black Sherif suffers ‘messy’ lawsuit over alleged breach of contract

At the height of his musical career, rapper Mohammed Ismail Sharif, known in showbiz circles as Black Sherif or Blacko, suffers a “messy” lawsuit as former investor, Shadrach Agyei Owusu, the Chief Executive Officer of Waynes Chavis Consult allegedly sued him for breach of contract.

The suit comes on the back of claims that the drill artiste had neglected his investor after he injected huge funds into his career.

Black Sherif was reported to have signed an international distribution deal with Empire Music without the consent of his investor, who purportedly has a business management contract with him.

The contract, allegedly required Black Sherif to conduct all his activities through the investor who came on board to help the artiste.

In the writ of summons dated April 11, 2022, the plaintiff, Shadrach Agyei Owusu, was demanding the court to prevent Black Sherif from performing at events without his consent.

He also seeked from the court  “an order of injunction to restrain the Defendant/Respondent, his agents, assigns, workmen and associates from performing at events or entering into agreements to perform at events or otherwise exploit his music and image without recourse to the Plaintiff.”

The plaintiff was also demanding for an order for the preservation of all funds accrued from Black Sherif’s online streams as well as a receiver to take the proceeds of all funds that would accrue from the activities of the defendant.

The writ comes at a point when Black Sherif’s latest song “Kwaku The Traveller” was topping global charts, making him the most sought-after artiste in the country.

However, the musician has not reacted on the issue of the lawsuit.
